Capo on the 3rd fret


Intro: oooooo o o o

E||----5--3--0--------0-|----5--3--0--------0--|----------3-----------|----------3-----------|
B||-------------5--3----|-------------5--3-----|----3--5-----5--3-----|----3--5-----5--3-----|
G||---------------------|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
D||---------------------|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
A||--0------------------|--0-------------------|--3-------------------|--3-------------------|
E||---------------------|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|

Verse 1 - Continue the intro picking with 2nd guitar strumming the chords

Am
Falling from high places, falling through lost spaces,
C
Now that we're lonely, now that there's nowhere to go.
Am
Watching from both sides these, clock towers burning up,
C                                                Am
I lost my time here, I lost my patience with it all. Mmmm


Then the picking slightly changes

      Am					C
E||-------------3-------|-------------3-------|-------------3-------|-------------3-------|
B||----1--3--1----3--1--|----1--3--1----3--1--|----1--5--1----3--1--|---1--5--1----3--1---|
G||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
D||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
A||--0------------------|--0------------------|--3------------------|--3------------------|
E||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|

Then just the chords

C                              Bm
We lost faith, in the arms of love.

Chorus, here I integrate this pattern into the chords:

E||---------------------|
B||---------------------|
G||------------0--------|
D||--2--2--2-2---2-0-2--|
A||---------------------|
E||---------------------|

So something like this (fast strumming, youll work out the rhythm Im sure :], this is 
just the basic idea)

     Am				          C
E||-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|--------------------|
B||-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1--1--1-1-1-1-1-1--|
G||-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0--|
D||-2--2--2-2---2-0-2-|-2--2--2-2---2-0-2-|-2--2--2-2---2-0-2-|-2--2--2-2---2-0-2--|
A||-0--0--0-0---0-0-0-|-0--0--0-0---0-0-0-|-3--3--3-3---3-3-3-|-3--3--3-3---3-3-3--|
E||-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|--------------------|

As you strum try to pick out the pattern at the same time


Am                  						C
Where you been hiding lately, where you been hiding from the news?
Am								  C
Because we've been fighting lately, we've been fighting with the wolves.
 Am	       C
Ooooaaaah With the wolves.
Am                   C
Ooooooaaah With the wolves. Red tongues and hands.


Verse 2  (Same as verse 1)

Am
Falling from high places, falling through lost spaces,
C
Now that we're lonely, now that we're so far from home.
Am
Watching from both sides, these towers been tumbling down,
C
I lost my mind here, I lost my patience with the lord.
Am		C
Oh with the lord.
Am		Bm
We lost faith, oh in the arms of love.


Chorus Pattern

Am		C
Love love love
Am                  						C
Where you been hiding lately, where you been hiding from the news?
Am								  C
Because we've been fighting lately, we've been fighting with the wolves.
Am	        C
Ooooooaaah With the wolves.
Am	        C
Ooooooaaah With the wolves. Red tongues and hands.
Am 		C
Red tongues and hands.

Break

Oooo Oh oh oh

Am 		C
Oooo Oh oh oh	 oooohhhh	x2

Am		Bm
We lost faith, in the arms of love.

finish on Am


Little extra!!!

If Im playing this on my own during the verses I integrate the verse picking with the 
chords but an octave down, so the pattern is:

E||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
B||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
G||--2--0---------------|--2--0---------------|---------0-----------|---------------------|
D||----------2----0--2--|---------2----0--2---|--0--2--------2--0---|--0--2---------------|
A||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|
E||---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|---------------------|

So as you strum the chords play this pattern at the same time, again works best with 
fast strumming

     Am				       C
E||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B||-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
G||-2-2-0-0---------|-2-2-0-0---------|---------0-0-----|---------0-0-----|
D||-----2-2-2-2-0-2-|-----2-2-2-2-0-2-|-0-0-2-2-----2-0-|-0-0-2-2-----2-0-|
A||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
E||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

Sort of, well you get the gist anyway!!!

Enjoy the song, Jam
