Do this a total of three times. The singing starts. Next time, leave out guitar 1 and 3. After that, the verse chords:
----------Verse----------e.g.They walk in the room and stare right through you, talking like we don't existe|---4-----------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---5----------------------------------------------7-----------9------------|G|---6----------------------------------------------8-----------9------------|D|---6----------------------------------------------9-----------9------------|A|---4----------------------------------------------9-----------7------------|E|--------------------------------------------------7------------------------|
But we exist.e|--11-----|B|--12-----|G|--13-----|D|--13-----|A|--11-----|E|---------|
etc.The strings at the end of the verse sound like:e|-------------------|B|-10-9-----------9--|G|------9-11---------|D|-----------9-11----|A|-------------------|E|-------------------|
----------Chorus---------- Maybe it's true, they're staring at you when you walk in the roome|-5------------------------4------------------------------------------------|B|-5------------------------4-----------------------6------------------------|G|-6------------------------4-----------------------6------------------------|D|-7------------------------6-----------------------6------------------------|A|-7------------------------6-----------------------4------------------------|E|-5------------------------4------------------------------------------------|
Tell 'em it's fine, stare if you like, just let us through...e|-5-------------------4-----------------------------------------------------|B|-5-------------------4------------------6---------------------9------------|G|-6-------------------4------------------6---------------------9------------|D|-7-------------------6------------------6---------------------9------------|A|-7-------------------6------------------4---------------------7------------|E|-5-------------------4-----------------------------------------------------|

Repeat verse. Another guitar plays the same chords, very staccato. The G#m isthen played an octave lower (466444). In the second chorus, after 'When you walk in the room', these strings arenotable:e|------------------|B|------------------|G|-10-11-10-8-------|D|------------11-9--|A|------------------|E|------------------|
At the end, the F# chord will get backed by an extra guitar playing the chord one octave lower (244322). ---------- Bridge ---------- Follow the same chords as during the chorus (but without the F#). You may like to play the bass line at the beginning. There is more, obviously, but there are bass tabs for that:
e|---------------|B|---------------|G|---------------|D|-7-6-----------|A|-----9-7-9-----|E|-----------9---|
Then there is this very cool string part. To play some part of it on guitar,I think it's something like this: e|--------------------------------------------------|B|-10-9-----------------------------------9-----9---|G|------9-9\8-------------11-10-8-------------------|D|------------9-------------------11-9-11----11-----|A|--------------12-11-9-8---------------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------|
This is played a second time later on, with this right behind it, repeated acouple of times:e|-----------|B|---------9-|G|-----------|D|-11-9-11---|A|-----------|E|-----------|
Bridge ends on the C#-chord (x4666x).
Then there is some sort of more relaxed, groovy part. Chords for this are:e|-------------|B|-6--------5--|G|-6--------6--|D|-6--------6--|A|-4--------4--|E|-------------|

The guitar arpeggio's at the end sound like loosely arpeggiated versions of higher notes of the C# and C#minore|-9----9--|B|-9----9--|G|-10---9--|D|---------|A|---------|E|---------|
I think that's it. Feel free to comment! ************************************ | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note | b Bend | pb Pre-bend | br Bend release | pbr Pre-bend release | brb Bend release bend ************************************
