Rather than splitting the song between two guitars or choosing between playing the riff or the chords,
there is a solution... As you play the chords, simply hammer the 7th onto the C#m and
hammer the 6th onto the Am7, so they look like this:

E|-------4------4--4--------------------|-----5------5--5----------------------|--|
B|-------5------5--6----------5--6------|-----5------5--7----------5--7--------|--|
G|-------6------6--4--------------------|-----5------5--5----------------------|--|

C#m                       Am7
My balls are coals in the bottom of our bed
     C#m                      Am7
That sags with the ash of our passion spent
C#m                          Am7
I kicked the coals to see if they're still lit
C#m                     Am7
Oh, how much more can I take of this?
E                   Asus4 Am     E        Asus4 Am
I don't know how much more I can take of this


C#m                     Am7
You get undressed and I watch the show
C#m                   Am7
You lie beside me but I stay cool
C#m                    Am7
Then the next morning again we go
C#m                       Am7
You dress for work and I watch that, too
E                   Asus4 Am     E        Asus4 Am
I don't know how much more I can take of this


Bbm                     A 
I know this tunnel will end with light
    C#m              A
But I can't see it, I can't see it
Bbm                  A
Must be a reason to stay polite
    C#m              A
But I can't see it, I can't see it
Bbm         A                 C#m
I keep the fire alive in the night
A        Bbm   A         C#m  A       Bbm       A 
  In the night, in the night,  in the night, oh oh oh


C#m                       A7
  I'm sick of sleeping in body ash
C#m                       A7
  Our bed is heaping with body ash
C#m                       A7
  I'm sick of sleeping in body ash
C#m                       A7
  Our bed is heaping with body ash

C#m                  Am7
We go for coffee and comfy chairs
C#m                          Am7
Your pen is to your lips but I don't stare
    C#m                       Am7
You lean over the table and between your hair
C#m                          Am7
I can't pretend that I don't see what's there
C#m (hit)
Sure, sure, I'm a gentleman but this just ain't fair


Bbm                     A

    C#m              A
But I can't see it, I can't see it
Bbm                  A
Must be a reason to stay polite
    C#m              A
But I can't see it, I can't see it
Bbm         A                 C#m
I keep the fire alive in the night
A        Bbm   A         C#m  A       Bbm       A 
  In the night, in the night,  in the night, oh oh oh
