Secondly, this is the heavily reverbed electric guitar panned in the right side.
The chords are strummed staccato, for the reverb to ring out clearly.

 LYRICS
**********
It's ok in the day,
I'm staying busy
Tied up enough so I don't have to wonder where is he,
Got so sick of crying,
So just lately,
When I catch myself I do a 180
I stay up clean the house; at least I'm not drinking,
Run around just so I don't have to think about thinking,
That silent sense of content that everyone gets,
Just disappears as soon as the sun sets,

He gets fierce in my dreams seizing my guts,
He floors me with dread,
Soaked to soul he swims in my eyes by the bed,
Pour myself over him,
Moon spilling in,
And I wake up alone,

If I was my heart,
I'd rather be restless,
Second I stop the sleep catches up and I'm breathless,
This ache in my chest,
'Cause my day is done now,
The dark covers me and I cannot run now
My blood running cold,
I stand before him,
It's all I can do to assure him,
When he comes to me,
I drip for him tonight,
Drowning in me we bathe under blue light,

He gets fierce in my dreams seizing my guts,
He floods me with dread,
Soaked to soul he swims in my eyes by the bed,
Pour myself over him,
Moon spilling in,
And I wake up alone,
And I wake up alone,
And I wake up alone,
And I wake up alone.

Great tab. I found it really helpful that you put each chord at the top of the bars, as well as the beats.
