Snow Patrol - The Planets Bend Between Us Acoustic tab

This is my first tab, so... Yeah. I had a mosey, 
and there weren't too many tabs that sounded good so 
I had a fiddle and came up with this.

You can capo it if you like. I like capo 2 personally.
Tuning's standard.

Intro:
E|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------|
B|--2---2---0---0---3---3---3---3----|
E|----3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3--|

E|----------------------|
A|----------------------|
D|----------------------|
G|----------------------|
B|--2---2---0---0----3--|
E|----3---3---3---3--3--|


Verse:
E|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------|
B|--2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
E|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|

(so basically you strum the notes you played in the intro, 
don't be afraid to hit the string below occasionally, 
it gives it a little depth)


Chorus:
E|--2--2--2--|
A|--2--2--2--|
D|--0--0--0--|
G|--0--2--2--|
B|--2--0--3--|
E|--3--3--0--|

That progression also works for the bridge if you're working off the 
'Up To Now'/radio version of the song but work out a strumming 
pattern that sounds good to you. Hope it helps.



Lyrics:
The winter's marked the Earth,
It's floored with frozen glass.
You slip into my arms,
then you quickly correct yourself.

Your freezing speech bubbles
Seem to hold your words aloft.
I want the smoky clouds of laughter
to swim about me forevermore.

(chorus)
I will race you to the waterside
And from the edge of Ireland shout out loud
So they could hear it in America;
It's all for you.

The shells crack under our shoes
like punctuation points.
The planets bend between us,
A hundred million suns and stars.

The sea filled in the silence
before you said those words.
And now even in the darkness,
I can see how happy you are.

(chorus)
I will race you to the waterside
And from the edge of Ireland shout out loud
So they could hear it in America;
It's all for you.
