The Fray – How To Save A Life tab ver. 2

This is a pretty simple way of playing this song and duplicating the sound of the piano 
a guitar. Once you get the main gist of it, it mostly repeats. The other tabs I've seen 
really make too much sense or are fragmented so I hope everyone can enjoy this one.
