Paul Dempsey - Bats chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Okay, so this song is standard tuning with a capo on 3rd. The chord names are at 
the end of the tab, the Dsus2/F# technically has a 7th in it as well, but 
whatever. Hopefully the formatting is preserved, the chord changes are kind of 
weird, especially in the chorus. Also, if anyone can improve on the little bit 
between the first chorus and second verse, that'd be much appreciated. Enjoy!

C                 Am                  C                   Am
come rebuild your memory with a small mountain of burning leaves
      C                       Em6               F
and a swinging wire door that slams shut like a guillotine
C                      Am
strum a note up in the wires
        C                       Am
to send bats down the river, seagulls around spires
    C                       Em6
and shred all the twilight, scatter it city-wide

 
F             Dsus2/F#
those average angels
F                       Dsus2/F#
the drunken saints with heavy heads
              F
they can keep dreaming, 
            Em             Fm         C
dreaming of sleep down the end of the bed

 
    F        Em         Fm               C
but nobody's ever gonna break your heart again...

(not 100% on this bit, pick the chords) C F C Am G

 
C       Am                           C
and the high-pitched, crooked thoughts
     Am                     C
that ricocheted off the walls
         Em6                  F                         C
she just set them down quiet, safe in her dresser drawer
         C                        Am
she laid me out on the laundromat floor
                C                     Am
and said you'll be not nearly who you were anymore
         C                 Em6
and i'll always be here to remind you what time is for
F                 Dsus2/F#
and those average angels
F                             Dsus2/F#
the drunken saints with heavy heads
F                                            Dsus2/F#
you see their spirits are cowering under the table
F
and they're still counting, 
             Em      Fm          C
counting the breaths under their breath

 
    F        Em   Fm   C
but nobody's ever...
F        Em         Fm                    C     
nobody's ever gonna break your heart again...
