Elbow - Switching Off tab

This is a great track played acoustically, sounds better than the original off the album 
in my opinion.

It's fingerpicked and I've broken it down into sections, once you get the pattern it's 
pretty easy.

The only bit im not 100% on is the end of the bridge but it'll do!

Chords: (not to sure of the names! No strings are muted they're just not played).

Loves first blush

Repeat verse

All the clocks give in
And the traffic fades
And the insects like a neon choir
The instant fizz
Connection made
And the curtains sigh
In time
With you


Chorus 2

You, the only sense the world has ever made
Early evening June
This room and the radio play
This I need to save
I choose my final scene today
Switching off

You, the only sense the world has ever made
This I need to save
A simple trinket locked away
I choose my final scene today
