Here are the chords to the band's title track from their 2004 album. Much of this song 
acoustic based, with Simon LeBon playing these chords live and Andy Taylor playing along 
some of them during the verses and for the entire chorus. Andy also does some extra work
with the electric guitar in parts of the
song. I've tried to point out what obvious parts he has that I can recognize.


For the verses, this is the main riff... Em B Asus2/Ame|--0-0-0-0----0-2-2----0-0-0-----------------|B|--0-0-0-0----0-2-2----0-0-1-----------------|G|--0-0-0-0----4-4-4----2-2-2-----------------|D|--2-2-2-2----4-4-4----2-2-2-----------------|A|--2-2-2-2----0-2-2--------------------------|E|--0-0-0-0-----------------------------------|
For the chorus, it's pretty simple... A5 D5 E5e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|-------------9-9-9----7-7-7------------------------------------------------|D|--7-7-7-7----9-9-9----7-7-7------------------------------------------------|A|--7-7-7-7----7-7-7----5-5-5------------------------------------------------|E|--5-5-5-5------------------------------------------------------------------|
This is Andy's part just before the second verse. And this also comes in for the last of the second verse as well. Em B(2) B Ame|------------------------0-0-------------------------------------------------|B|--8--8-8-8--------------1-1-------------------------------------------------|G|--9--9-9-9--8----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|D|--9--9-9-9--9----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|A|--7--7-7-7--9----2-2--------------------------------------------------------|E|------------7---------------------------------------------------------------|
Em B(2) B Be|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--8--8-8-8------------------------------------------------------------------|G|--9--9-9-9--8----4-4----4-4-------------------------------------------------|D|--9--9-9-9--9----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|A|--7--7-7-7--9----2-2----2-2-------------------------------------------------|E|------------7---------------------------------------------------------------|
Be sure to catch where the down and up strokes come in... during the main riff especially. Verse One: Em B Asus2 Am Makes my hair stand up on end Something alien happening Synchronized but don't comprehend Coz where I stop that's where you begin Em B Asus2 Am I know the moment I commit A pleasure rising when I take the hit And I'm addicted to state you're in Cos you're getting me out of it Chorus: A5 E5 D5 Wasted There is nothing gonna ace this And we're gonna go to space kid Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut (Andy Chords Before And During The Second Verse) Em B(2) B Am Em B(2) B B Verse Two: Em B Asus2 Am Groovin-out to x-ray spex Something tells me you're the alien sex I can't imagine now; what comes next When this astronaut connects? Em B Asus2 Am Coming-on when I touch your skin A kind of strange light you emit I feel your gravity pull me in Now you're getting me out of it Chorus: A5 E5 D5 Wasted There is nothing gonna ace this And we're gonna go to space kid Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut (Repeat Again) Bridge: (No Chords Played Here) Bare-feet for quantam leap Because space is hot and deep And we follow giant footprints as we fall... in falling like the twins through Saturn's holy rings And if they can't hold us Where it's gonna end up - anybody knows Interlude: A5 E5 D5 An A-stronaut An A-stronaut Guitar Solo: Here's my interpretation of the guitar solo from what I can hear.
