G               C#dim
my flower would not unfold
C              D            Eb  Em
always waiting for some sunnier day
          C            C#dim             C   Ab G
quiet and patient but afraid and hidden away
when your awful truth's been told
C         D                        Eb Em

  1. Awesome dude, this is really amazing.

    I wish you could tab every song he has in this way, you make them understandable, simple, and very accurate!

    May I give a suggestion for this one? the C chord (at least it seems like it in the outro on my version) seems to also be played up high:
    C – 8 10 10 9 8 8

    Let me know what you think.
