alright well the lyrics i posted on here not too long ago but i'll copy them down here i guess if it's any help

It all ended up - 5
With a broken heart - 5
Time could never mend - 5
You gave it your all - 5
And I watched you fall - 5
Till you gave up in the end - 7

Now time, you thought, would never last - 8
Is coming back around -6
And time, you know, is changing fast - 8
The lies you can't live down - 6

(chorus)
I know you, don't tell me - 6
That this is how it ends - 6
Looking back, who could see? - 6
Our lives would come to this - 6

The words that I hear - 5
Ringing in my ears - 5
Nothing you say can take them back - 8
Is this really what - 5
All you have become? - 5
So far from everything we had - 8

How far advanced are you with your playing ?
Do you only know open chords ?
Lets know a little about your standard of playing and what style music you like

Cheers

ok well....i've been playing guitar for about 3 years now, i'm very familiar with most major, minor, bar, and some 7th chords. umm....i play mostly rock and blues but i don't really like to limit myself to those two styles, i can play both acoustic and electric guitar, i pretty much listen to ANYTHING when it comes to music, whether it be from bluegrass to heavy metal, and finaly, i'm leaning more towards a rock or alternative type of feel with this song, even though that doesn't really narrow it down much lol so, let me know if that's any help or if i left out anything!! thanks!

Might I suggest something like , 100 bpm , D/D/U U with a palm mute / D Sort of strum

( open G but lower your fingers down a string and play the D &A stringleaving the pinky on the high Estring )
It all ended up

(Open C )
With a broken heart

Open G --------------D
Time could never mend

D------------- G ---------
You gave it your all

( open G but lower your fingers down a string and play the D &A stringleaving the pinky on the high Estring )
And I watched you fall

C----------- -------------D
Till you gave up in the end

If nothing else it sounds cool

Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am
