I just got their new CD this past week and decided to try to chord this song
out.  If you are confused at all, email me and I will give you a copy with
lyrics.  Thanks alot, enjoy!  Also, if you want a version without
the capo e-mail me!  I also have the solo at the end of the song tabbed
at the bottom!


Intro: (Keys, just strum once per chord)
D – Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – G

Verse One: (Fingerpick around the chord)
D – Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – G
D – Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – G

Pre-Chorus: (Sounds like muted power chords)
D – Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – Bm7 – G

Chorus: (High power chords, or do what I do... play full chords strumming only
         down the entire time, that's what Bryan does, listen to it!)
D -  Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – Bm7 – G

Verse Two: (Same as  verse 1)
D – Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – G
D – Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – G

Bridge: (Same as chorus)
D – Asus – Bm7 – G
D – Asus – Bm7 – G

Solo: (right at the end of the song, 4:03)

On the last note of the solo, it sounds like Bryan is using a "Divebomb"
effect.  That's the end then.  This is played over the bridge chords.
Sounds like alot of delay, and some high-end distortion with reverb.

Order of Song:
Verse 1
Verse 2
Pre-Chorus (slow -- fingerpick around chords)
Chorus (slow—acapella) (x2) (you can try to strum only once per chord)
Bridge (all-out craziness... yay!  go wild on this part worshipping)

a e f#m d
a e d x2

pre chorus

a e f#m d


a e
f#m d
a e
f#m e

and the bridge is the same as the pre chorus

I'd like to add that, yes, Mr. Switchfoot, you can play it that way... I do myself in fact. I enjoy just messing around with different chords for it. I watched the Newsboys play this song at the Patriot Center, and they did it this way. So, if you want to go with exactly what's on the CD, there's the D A Bm G for ya. But, the A E F#m D sounds great too. You could also use B9 F#m G#m E, C G Am F, C# G# A#m F#, etc. Either way, great song!

NewGuitarist125 - 2005-01-02

Oops... I meant that the Newsboys play it the way the tab says! hehe, sorry for the "confusion" that, likely, didn't occur...

Ajwsalem - 2005-04-21

Hey guys I've been looking at this song too. You can also play G D Em C as the chords.

JohnM - 2005-10-11

Yes, any of those are "correct", but they are all in different keys. There's like 12 different ways you can play it: but the tab is in the key that the song is played in on the CD.

ramus106 - 2005-11-08

What chord fingerings do you use?

bassfreek208 - 2006-02-13

just to add to the fun (and hopefully not the confusion), the bass plays
Eb Bb Cm G#, and that seems to sound the best to me

MAG1 - 2006-03-09

it would be easyier to play if it was more spaced out
and i think that the guy just above me is right about the chords

DiscipleRawks - 2007-09-21

Hey does anyone know how long it takes for a tab to come up on the site after you submit it? I submitted the tab a few days ago and the song wasnt on the site already so i dont know why they wouldn't post it. Please help!
