Verse 1:
Asus4                  Cadd9              G    Dsus2           Asus4
      It's been a while     since I could      hold my head up high
                 Cadd9             G        Dsus2
It's been a while    since I first saw you
Asus4                      Cadd9              G           Dsus2        Asus4
      And itís been a while     since I could stand on my own two feet again
                     Cadd9               G         Dsus2
And itís been a while      since I could call you

Chorus:
A5           C5            G5        D5
   And every thing I can't remember
A5              C5            G5    D5
   As f**ked up as it all may seem
A5          C5                G5        D5  
   The consequences that I've rendered
A5                C5            G5      D5
   I stretched myself beyond my means


Verse 2:
Asus4                  Cadd9                  G              Dsus2
      Itís been a while      since I couldn't say     that I wasn't addicted
Asus4            Cadd9                  G            Dsus2
Itís been a while      since I couldn't say I love myself as well as
Asus4                Cadd9                     G                     Dsus2         Asus4 
And itís been a while      since I've gone and f**ked things up just like I always do
                 Cadd9               G                Dsus2
It's been a while       but all that s**t seems to disappear when I'm with you


Chorus:
A5          C5            G5         D5
   And everything I can't remember 
A5              C5            G5    D5
   As f**ked up as it all may seem
A5          C5                G5        D5
   The consequences that I've rendered
A5                C5              G5     D5
   I've gone and f**ked things up again, yeah__________


Bridge:
Am                   G         D
Why must I feel this way________
Am                 G         D
Just make this go away________
Am                     G         D
Just one more peaceful day________


Verse 3:
Asus4                  Cadd9               G   Dsus2          Asus4
      It's been a while      since I could     look at myself straight
                 Cadd9                    G    Dsus2
It's been a while      since I said I'm sorry
Asus4                  Cadd9                     G      Dsus2              Asus4
      It's been a while      since I've seen the way    candles light your face
                 Cadd9           G              Dsus2
It's been a while      but I can still remember just the way you taste


Chorus:
A5          C5            G5        D5
   And everything I can't remember 
A5              C5            G5       D5                A5
   As f**ked up as it all may seem____ to be I know itís me
          C5               G5       D5   
I can not blame this on my father
A5            C5                G5   D5 
   He did the best he could for me


Outro:
Asus4                  Cadd9            G    Dsus2           Asus4
      It's been a while   since I could      hold my head up high
                 Cadd9                    G
It's been a while     since I said I'm sorry

this is the best tab of the song i have found ...the tab awesome ..... but the Dsus2 chord u have i think sould just be a D...and in the unplugged video Aaron lewis plays that ..but other then that awsesome job and keep up the good work

Way too complicated just capo fret 5 and go Em G Asus4 Asus2 and bam! Haven't looked at the bridge yet but will check it and comment.

Not sure what part you think is way too complicated? Drop-tuning a half-step? The fingering of the intro? The chords? It's all pretty basic stuff. Using the capo as opposed to drop-tuning doesn't give it the same sound. If you check their acoustic version of this song, no capo.
