Chords
Transpose:
Okay I'm only covering Guitar Two (Rhythm Guitar, played by Martin) cause I
only do Guitar Two in the songs I play. I will include the small riff
played by Paul (Guitar One, Lead) though. You can find the video where they
performed at Sprint Live Music lounge at

Rythem Guitarist: -Performance Notes- I was a too lazy to do the strumming pattern, but it's relatively easy to play. Just listen to the video stated above. Played at Mesoforte (mF) Intro: D (2 bars) Asus 2 (2 bars) Bm (2 bars) Gsus (strum once) Bm (strum once) Asus2 (complete the last bar) Lead Guitarist: Verse: -Performance Notes- I didn't take the effort to tab Lead Guitarist after this, but it should be played Palm Muted with similar notes to the Intro. Rythem Guitarist: -Performance Notes- From here on, just listen to the strumming pattern and catch on. Everything is palm muted until the second-half of the verse. D5 Brown eyes and lungs filled up with smoke A5 Fast lives are stuck in the undertow Bm5 G5 But you know the places I wanna go... (Open chords from here) D Asus2 Cause Oh Oh Oh I've got a sickness you've got the cure. Bm You've got the spark I've been looking for. Gsus2 (strum once) And I've got a plan- We walk out the door. Pre-chorus: Bm You know you wanna just let go Asus2 It's time to roll down the windows Bm Singing Oh Oh Oh We got all we need so Gsus2 Asus2 (after a few strums, mute guitar) Here we go. Chorus: D Asus2 Turn it up. It's Five Minutes to Midnight Bm You're coming home with me tonight. Gsus2 Asus2 I can't get enough; shakin' me up. Turn it up! D Asus2 Alright, at Five Minutes to Midnight Bm You'll see our name in city lights. Gsus2 Bm Asus2 We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop (NO CHORD) (Riff played by Lead Guitarist) And come alive Verse 2: -Performance Notes- Palm mute like Verse 1. D5 A5 We could, pack up and leave all our things behind Bm5 No fast or fiction or storyline. G5 Cause I need you for more than just for tonight. D (strum twice, don't let ring) You're Oh Oh all I care Asus2 I can't stop my breathin in Bm I'm weak and you are my medicine. Gsus2 (strum once) I won't stop 'till I am under you skin. Pre-chorus: Bm You know you wanna just let go Asus2 It's time to roll down the windows Bm Singing Oh Oh Oh We got all we need so Gsus2 Asus2 (same mute pattern as Verse 1) Here we go. Chorus: D Asus2 Turn it up. It's Five Minutes to Midnight Bm You're coming home with me tonight. Gsus2 Asus2 I can't get enough; shakin' me up. Turn it up! D Asus2 Alright, at Five Minutes to Midnight Bm You'll see our name in city lights. Gsus2 Bm Asus2 We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop... (during the like 1.5 seconds between here and the Bridge, the D chord is strummed for 2 notes or so... I think...) Bridge: Note- This part is played by Paul for Rythem. I'm not entirely sure it's what they played at Sprint Live Music Lounge, but it sounds accurate... at least... Bm And when the clock strikes twleve Asus2 Will you find another boy to go and kiss and tell Bm Asus2 Gsus2 Cause you know, I never will. Bm I think we should strike a match Asus2 And we'll hold it to the wind and see how long it'll last Bm Asus2 Gsus2 We can make the time stand still Interlude: D.. D.. D.. D.. Chorus: -Performance Notes- To make this part sound really cool and all, try playing it at Mesopiano (mP) or Piano(P). D Asus2 Turn it up. It's Five Minutes to Midnight Bm You're coming home with me tonight. Gsus2 (NO CHORD) I can't get enough; shakin' me up. Turn it up! D Asus2 Alright, at Five Minutes to Midnight Bm You'll see our name in city lights. Gsus2 Bm Asus2 We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop Final Chorus: D Asus2 Turn it - Just let go. It's time to just let go. Bm It's time to roll down the windows. Gsus2 We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop. Turn it- D Asus2 Just let go. It's time to just let go. Bm It's time to roll down the window; roll down the windows Gsus2 Bm Asus2 We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop D (strum once, let ring) And come alive.
