Foo Fighters - Cheer Up Boys Your Make Up Is Running tab

Ive put this together from what ive seen them play live on TV/Youtube etc. I saw them 
at B'ham 06/11/07 and positioned myself in front of Shifty & watched what they were 
when I remembered to lol. Was a truly awesome gig!

This tab sounds correct. Im really not sure about Shiftys part during the bridge though, 
yet to find some decent footage which enables me to see what hes playing and I havent 
it out by ear...

As always im open to suggestions.
Listen to the song to work out the order.

Standard Tuning: EADGBe

{Guitar 1 Grohl,
Guitar 2 Shifty}.)

Lyrics
It was meant to be but all along it never meant a thing
Never stopped to ask you why you didn't pass me by
Did you see me when your life flashed before your eyes?
Was it just that I wasn't hard enough, hard enough for you?

Stop using my
(Stop me, stop me, stop me)
Confusion
(Stop me, stop me, stop me)

Wait, wait, theres a world out there
(There's a world out there)
Dont you deny me
(Dont you deny me)
Give me one last wish
(Give me one last wish)
There's a world out there

Elementary, I solved them all, all your mysteries
Settle down and with good time, we can solve all mine
Tell me lies, oh tell me when, tell me off again
And I will let you know when I've had enough, had enough of you

Stop using my
(Stop me, stop me, stop me)
Confusion
(Stop me, stop me, stop me)

Wait, wait, theres a world out there
(There's a world out there)
Dont you deny me
(Dont you deny me)
Give me one last wish
(Theres a world out there)
Theres a world out there
(Dont you deny me)

Know youve got your reasons
Hey, let's call it even
Turn out all the lights and go to bed
Still I get this feeling
No one will believe me
When I let these ghosts outside my head
Theres a world out there
(Theres a world out there)
Dont you deny me
(Dont you deny me)
Give me one last wish
(Give me one last wish)
Dont you deny me
(Dont you deny me)

There's a world out there
(There's a world out there)
Dont you deny me
(Dont you deny me)
Give me one last wish
(Theres a world out there)
Theres a world out there
(Dont you deny me)
