About Today Tab

This isn't exactly what's played on the record as I think there is more
than one guitar, but it's what I play at home...

I find myself adding in extra notes here and there to pad it out a little
and make it sound a fuller, but this is the basics

Listen to the song to get the rhythm and changes between the riffs...

Today you were far away
and I didn't ask you why
What could I say
I was far away
You just walked away
and I just watched you
What could I say

How close am I to losing you

Tonight you just close your eyes
and I just watch you
slip away

How close am I to losing you

Hey, are you awake
Yeah I'm right here
Well can I ask you about today

How close am I to losing you
How close am I to losing
