Note- if this tab is offlined... just copy and past it to notepad or whatever and fontsize it to 8 or 10.

I love this song. If one song should be played for the rest of our lives it 
should be this song. It's hard at first but with time youll gt it. It did anyway. 
ok the song is played using standard tunning.

verse's: 

	B        E       G 
	nothing left to say

	B            E       G 
	and all i've left to do

	B       E        G
	is run away from you

	               B  E  
	and she let me on down

	     G               B   E
	with secrets i can't keep


  NOW play with Gtr.1 >fig.b<

	G                   B    E
	close your eyes and sleep

	G                 B E
	don't wait up for me

	G                  B    E   G
	hush now don't you speak to me
  
  Now for this part you could just use wah effect while
stricking the ninth fret of g string once. let it ring out
but have some fun with it. Listen to the song to get the feel.

	B          E       G
	wrapped my hurt in you

	B           E               G
	and took my shelter in that pain

	B      E      G 
	the opiate of blame

	               B     E          G 
	is your broken heart heart your heart


  Again play with Gtr. >fig.b<

	       B       E    G
	so now i'm all by myself
	
	B       E      G
	as i've always felt

	    B      E       G
	and i'll betray my tears

	      B   E      G              F#
	to anyone caught in our ruse of fools


	B                        F# 
	one last kiss for me yeah

	B
	one last kiss

	     G 
	good night


  Here is that little intro solo played with an ebow on an acoustic 
(good luck trying to reproduce this sound, it's hard BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE) 
if you don't have an ebow or dont know what it is simply play this in a lite 
sounding effect to give it a bedtime sleepy sound.

Gtr.1                          Bend many x's

	A   C   G                F              A   C  G 
	          didn't want to lose you once again
 
	               F       A     C  G
	didn't want to be your friend

	            F               A  C  G
	fulfilled a promise made of tin

	                    F
	and crawled back to you
                               (darcy and billy with backup) 
	   B       E    G
	 i'm all by myself  (close your eyes and sleep)

	B       E      G
	as i've always felt    (don't wait up for me)

	    B      E      G
	and i'll betray myself (hush now don't you speak)

	      B   E
	to anyone lost 

	G
	anyone but you

  	E       G
	depend on me

	D         C             E

	when god sleeps in bliss

	    B       E    G
	and i'm all by myself

	B       E      G
	as i've always felt

	    B      E    G
	and i'll betray myself

	      B  E G
	to anyone.
