E|---2-----------------------------------5-------------------4-------------|
Decisions too, decisions are made and not bought but I thought, it wouldn't be so
I guess not

I'm not too sure what the solo is, but after the solo Gtr. 1 from the intro is played
the background music, then two bars of just background music, and begins again as a second
identical to Chorus 1 played twice. Singing ends on the last 'tree' and the note is
And that's it.

This is the first tab I've done, so sorry for any mistakes. If anyone has any comments,
e-mail address is at the top of tab.
Brilliant song, brilliant band, enjoy.
