I should note before this that this is not my work, credit should go to 'mellon_c' of
official Arctic Monkeys forum, I'm simply posting it here to share with a wider audience,
I did was fit music to lyrics. It's also not my responsibility if you don't have the 
it leaked a few days ago and you can probably still find it about on various sites.

Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)


Verse 1
AI thought I saw you in the battleship
D Bmbut it was only a look-a-like
AShe was nothing but a vision trick
D BmUnder the warning light
F#m A F#mShe was close, close enough to be your ghost
ABut my chances turned to toast
D Bm AWhen i asked her if i could call her your name
Verse 1 [cont] (Same pattern) I thought I saw you in the rusty hook Huddled up in a wicker chair I wandered over for a closer look And kissed who ever was sitting there She was close, and she held me very tightly 'Til I asked awfully politely, please Can I call you her name (To transition into the chorus you can continue playing A then F#m) Chorus
D BmAnd I elongated my lift home,
F#m DYeah, I let him go the long way 'round
BmI smelt your scent on the seatbelt
EAnd kept my shortcuts to myself
A D Bm (Come in with A at the end of the chorus and play these chords like in the verse) Verse 2 (Same Pattern)
AI thought I saw you in the parrots beak,
D BmMessing with the smoke alarm,
AIt was too loud for me to hear her speak,
D BmAnd she had a broken arm,
F#m A F#mIt was close, so close that the walls were wet
AAnd she wrote it out in letra-set
D Bm C#mNo, you can't call me her name
A C#mTell me where's your hiding place
A C#mI'm worried I'll forget your face
F#mAnd I've asked everyone
Bm EI'm beginning to think I imagined you all along
D BmAnd I elongated my lift home,
F#m DYeah, I let him go the long way 'round
BmI smelt your scent on the seatbelt
DmAnd kept my shortcuts to myself
Solo A D Bm x2 (Play this like you would in the verse) F#m Bm D E Verse 3
AI saw your sister in the cornerstone
D BmOn the phone to the middle man
AWhen I saw that she was on her own
D BmI thought she might understand
F#m AShe was close, well you couldn't get much closer
F#m A DShe said i'm really not supposed to but yes,
AYou can call me anything you want
Fade out. You may want to work out strumming and timing for yourself especially in the bridge and where it gets a bit different. It's overall a pretty simple song from the new album. Tabbed by Robert Farrell 28 July 2009. Version 1.0
