Tab of new, studio version of The Reason. (2013)

I find it easiest played half a step down, so tune to Eb standard, and then 
transpose this up a half step. If not, then play this in standard tuning.

Intro:
Fm C# D#   x2


Verse 1:
Fm     C#         D#
All my life I've searched for something
Fm             C#            D#
To satisfy the longing in my heart
Fm        C#        D#
But every time I've come away
Fm   C#       D#     (D#)
Emptier than before


Chorus:
(D#)       Fm     C#        D#
And now I finally see the reason
          Fm         C#    D#
Cuz I was made to be yours alone
              C#         G#       D#
You formed my heart with your own hands
           C#        G#   D#
But I just could not understand
    C#           G#          D#             
If I gave you my life I'd be healed by your grace
      C#            G#            D#
I was made for your love and gave others your place


Transition:
Fm C# D#   x2


Verse 2:
Fm         C#      D#
I spent my days giving my heart away
   Fm  C#   D#
To a---nything new
Fm      C#        D#
Only to ache from the poison
      Fm   C#   D#      (D#)
Of my temporary muse

Fm        C#       D#
There were times I cried myself
   Fm  C#   D#
To sleep at night
Fm  C#    D#
On..ly to wake up
Fm   C#        D#      (D#)
Wishing that I didn't


Chorus:
(D#)       Fm     C#        D#
And now I finally see the reason
          Fm         C#    D#
Cuz I was made to be yours alone
              C#         G#       D#
You formed my heart with your own hands
           C#        G#   D#
But I just could not understand
     C#          G#          D#             
If I gave you my life I'd be healed by your grace
      C#            G#            D#
I was made for your love and gave others your place



Transition:
Fm C# D#   x2


Bridge:
Fm           C#            D#
Thank you for never giving up on me
       Fm                   C#       D#
When I looked to everything else and lived so selfishly
    Fm       C#      D#
You bled you died to be with me
(D#)          Fm                C#               D#
Why would you do something like that for someone like me

Chorus:
(D#)       Fm     C#       D#
And now I finally see the reason
          Fm         C#    D#
Cuz I was made to be yours alone
              C#         G#       D#
You formed my heart with your own hands
          C#      G#   D#
And now I finally understand
      C#          G#           D#             
And I gave you my life and I'm healed by your grace
      C#            G#            D#
I was made for your love that no one can replace
        C#          G#        D#              C#
This is it, I won't miss everything I am made for

Outro:
      Fm C# D#
To be yo....urs
    Fm C# D#
All yo....urs
