1st Verse (repeat Riff 1 eight more times) Stay with me, I'll set you free Cause I can tell you once were pretty Rose so sad you've lost your petals And lost the luster of your tattle tales Pre-chorus (repeat Riff 1 five more times)(Second guitar with some notes I can't figure out because they're very quiet and a little warbly...) I need a love to help me find my way I need a strength that I cannot betray I need a word to say what I can't say I need a lover...lover..lover...lover....
Riff 2-(I made this part up because I'm not sure..it sounds close, though.)Guitar 1 (play this 4 times at Chorus)e|--------------------------------B|--------------------------------G|--------------------------------D|--------------------------------A|---12------12--------9-------7--E|10----10-10--10-0-7---7-0-5----5

1st Chorus What are we waiting for? What are we waiting for? Time has lost its hold on me... Play Riff 1 twice...then the singing kicks in. 2nd Verse (repeat Riff 1 eight times) Hatred sleeps inside my bones In the stillness of cool air All the boys have been left for dead Cause we go where they fear to tread The beautiful ones the ones will remember The precious ones our greatest pretenders Pre-chorus (repeat Riff 1 five times) 2nd Chorus (Riff 2) And if you lose yourself Could you take me too? Could you rest inside the sleep?

Play Riff 3 twice. Outro (Sung in rounds starting at "you" then "I'll") (Riff 3 about four or five times) Stay with me I'll set you free from you. Stay with me I'll set you free from you. Stay with me I'll set you free from you.... and it fades out...or maybe you could just play
