   Hoobastank - Crawling In The Dark Tab    

Song: Crawling In The Dark
Band: Hoobastank
Tuning: Dropped D

This song is awesome, look out for Hoobastank`s new album in the future.
I think it is coming out in November but I`m not sure.
I`m pretty sure this song is supposed to played in Standard Tuning
but I think it`s easier to play in Dropped D so that`s how I tabbed it.
It`s just my second tab so take it easy if it sucks.

I`ve recently updated the intro so you will notice a difference. To all
of you who corrected me saying my intro was incorrect, I have no corrected
it to how it should be so thanks a lot. After watching their music video,
I`ve discovered that those who told me that this song should be played in
open E tuning are also correct. In the video, Dan is playing the song in
the open E tuning which is [E-B-E-G-B#-E] I think. In that tuning, Dan
plays high chords power chords higher on the neck (around 10th and 12th
frets) rather than putting the root on the A string, so my tab is not
perfect right and needs some corrections. Soon when my damn exams are
over I will tab out a version in that tuning, which should be the correct
way to play it. Thanks everyone for your corrections.

Lyrics:
I will dedicate
And sacrifice my every
Thing for just a second`s worth
Before my story`s ending
I wish I could know
The directions that I take
And all the choices that I make
Won`t end up all for nothing

Show me what it`s for
Make me understand it
I`ve been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is there something more
Than what I`ve been handed
I`ve been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

Help me carry on
Assure me it`s okay to
Use my heart and not my eyes
To navigate the darkness
Will the ending be
Ever coming suddenly
Will I ever get to see
The ending to my story

Show me what it`s for
Make me understand it
I`ve been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is there something more
Than what I`ve been handed
I`ve been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

How much further do I have to go?
How much longer till I finally know?
Cuz I`m looking and I just can`t see what`s in front of me
In front of me

Show me what it`s for
Make me understand it
I`ve been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is there something more
Than what I`ve been handed
I`ve been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
