CHORUS F#m E D A Stay Togeth- er F#m E D A And Stay, These days ????? F#m E D A Stay Togeth- er F#m E D A Two hearts under the skies remain. CHORUS TAB
MIDDLE 8 G A [Fill Bb--2-3-5-3-0-2--] There's a time bomb in the high ?life? C#m G (G/F#) There's a blue suburban dream. Bm C#m Will I see you up in paradise? F C D Or have you come to touch me? VERSE 2 Come to my arms tonight, You and me together on electric light. She will dance in the poisoned air, Just you and me forever by the motorway ???? CHORUS MIDDLE 8 VERSE 3 Come to my arms or not, Just you and me together in the year of the hawk. Single file in the nuclear night, And we can feel a little closer as we tumble through the sky. CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS CHORUS WITH 'De Doo ooh' bits CHORUS WITH BERNARD GOING MENTAL ABOUT 5 CHORUSES WITH BRETT GOING MAD OUTRO

Then, in unison with the horn section;
EFFECTS This is tricky because of all the guitar tracks on the record, so here a rough expression of how the combinations come across. Intro - Chorus & mild compression Verse1- Mild distortion Chorus- Fuzz w/the tone turned down Outro - Bluesy at the start, getting fuzzier all the time. If you have any additions/corrections especially about the lyrics, please e-mail me at I hope I have done this song justice in this transcription. The number of tracks makes transcribing it a nightmare, but I think I got all the important bits.
