I should note before this that this is not my work, credit should go to 'mellon_c' of
official Arctic Monkeys forum, I'm simply posting it here to share with a wider audience,
I did was fit music to lyrics. It's also not my responsibility if you don't have the 
it leaked a few days ago and you can probably still find it about on various sites.

Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)

Intro
A

Verse 1
A
I thought I saw you in the battleship
D                    Bm
but it was only a look-a-like
A
She was nothing but a vision trick
D              Bm
Under the warning light
F#m                 A                                   F#m
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
A
But my chances turned to toast
D                              Bm                         A
When i asked her if i could call her your name

Verse 1 [cont] (Same pattern)
I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
Huddled up in a wicker chair
I wandered over for a closer look
And kissed who ever was sitting there

She was close, and she held me very tightly
'Til I asked awfully politely, please
Can I call you her name

(To transition into the chorus you can continue playing A then F#m)

Chorus
D                                          Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
F#m                                                   D
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
E
And kept my shortcuts to myself
A D Bm (Come in with A at the end of the chorus and play these chords like in the verse)

Verse 2 (Same Pattern)
A
I thought I saw you in the parrots beak,
D                        Bm
Messing with the smoke alarm,
A
It was too loud for me to hear her speak,
D                     Bm
And she had a broken arm,
F#m                 A                                   F#m
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
A
And she wrote it out in letra-set
D           Bm                     C#m
No, you can't call me her name

Bridge
A                               C#m
Tell me where's your hiding place
A                     C#m
I'm worried I'll forget your face
F#m
And I've asked everyone
Bm                                 E
I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along

Chorus
D                                          Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
F#m                                                   D
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
Dm
And kept my shortcuts to myself


Solo
A D Bm x2 (Play this like you would in the verse)
F#m Bm
D E

Verse 3
A
I saw your sister in the cornerstone
D                             Bm
On the phone to the middle man
A
When I saw that she was on her own
D                             Bm
I thought she might understand
F#m                              A
She was close, well you couldn't get much closer
F#m             A                                       D
She said i'm really not supposed to but yes,
                                              A
You can call me anything you want

Fade out.

You may want to work out strumming and timing for yourself especially in the bridge and
where it gets a bit different. It's overall a pretty simple song from the new album.
