         "Idontwana comeback down from this cloud...            Itstaknme..."
 "all this time  to  find out what I   need.       yeah, yea-yeah yeah."

Let's just say the tabs I'm showning require lots of muting and palms and variations. So, 
you'll need to work out the feeling. My hope here is that if you strum the above on the 
timing shown, the light will go off and you'll figure the rest out.

Okay let's get into it...

Intro:

(Starts off with bass riffs and loosely interpreted main riffs for about minute. You're on
your own for that. I'm jumping in just before the first verse, when you wake up and realize
the song's about to start.)

B      |A      |F#     |G   *stop | (main riff 2)                 

Verse 1: (w/ main riff - very bassy for 1st half)

B                |A                 |
        Love and  hate......get it 
F#               |G                 |
wrong. She cut me right back down to 
B                |A                 |
size.   Sleep the day,      let it
F#               |G                 |
fade.     Who was there to take your 
B       *        |A                 | (* pick up intensity on 3rd beat)
place?   No one knows......never 
F#               |G                 |
will!    Mostly   me,    but mostly 
B                |A                 |
you.  What do you say, what do you 
F#               |G                 |
do,       when it all comes down? 

Chorus:

D                     |A                     | 
   Cause I don't wanna come back  down  from 
G                     |G                     |
this cloud.                    It's taken me 
D                     |A                     |
all this time...    to find  out    what I 
G                     |G                     | 
n-e-e-d...     yeah.   (yeah, yeah, yeah)

D                     |A                     |            
     No, I don't wanna come back down   from 
G                     |G                     |
this cloud!               Cuz' it's taken me 
D                     |A                     |
all this...all this... t----i-----i-----i---
G                     |G                     |
-ime.                         

B  |A  |F# |G  |(x2)

Verse 2: (w/ main riff)

B                A             F#
   There is no blame o-n-l-y shame 
         G                B
when you beg and just complain.
            A               F#    
The more I come, the more I try... 
       G           B    
all police are paranoid. 
      A            F#
So am I, so's the future.
       G           B
So are you, be a creature.
            A                F#
What do you say, what do you do, 
        G
when it all comes down? 

Chorus:

D                     A                   G       
  Cause I don't wanna come back down from this cloud. 
G               D                A               G           G
  It's taken me all this time to find out what I need. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! 
D                   A                   G
  No, I don't wanna come back down from this cloud.
G               D                   A         G       G           
  It's taken me all this, all this, t-i-i-i-i-me. 

Bridge: (variation on main riff, i think, if all else fails use bass riff - I hear that going on)

B         A         F#              G
Shoot up, shoot up, shoot up you're high... oooh..
B         A         F#        G
hi---i----i----i----i----i----i----i----
B~~~~~~~~(A)~~~~~~~(F#)~~~    G
-igh!                       ("1, 2, 3, 4...")

Verse 3: (w/ main riff)

B           A          F#
  Love and hate get it wrong,
           G              B 
She cut me right down to size! 
           A          F#
Sleep the day, let it fade.
        G                  B 
Who was there to take your place?! 
        A            F#
No one knows, never will! 
         G              B
Could be me it could be you. 
               A          F#
Oh what do you say, do ya do, 
        G
when it all comes down?! 

Chorus:

D                     A                   G       
  Cause I don't wanna come back down from this cloud. 
G                    D                A               G           G
  Cuz' it's taken me all this time to find out what I need. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! 
D                    A                   G
   No, I don't wanna come back down from this cloud.
G                    D                   A         G       G           
  Cuz' it's taken me all this, all this, t-i-i-i-i-me!  

Outro: 

(play chorus chords, but intensely - full strum away - D definitely at 10th fret here)

D                      A                      G                   G
D                      A                      G                   G
Why did you, whydidju, why did you, whydidju, ydiju,ydiju,ydiju,ydiju, why did you?
D                      A                      G                   G  
                                              Comedown? 
D                      A                      G                   G     
       I don't want to come back down    from this cloud...                       from...
D                      A                      G                   G 
this cloud...          this cloud...          this cloud...       this cloud...   from... 
D                      A                      G                   G 
this cloud...          this cloud...          this cloud...       this cloud. 

D   A   G   G  (to fade, or end on D, or grab your violin if you have one and wrap things up)

Definitely a ton of effort here man and a great job overall. I'm offering only one suggestion: I'd play a Bm everywhere that you play a B. It's a minor key song and if you play the B major it doesn't sound right (to me); maybe that's why your suggestion for a quarter-step down sounds right? Either way, nice work and thanks for making the chords

Wow...apparently not? Wth? I totally thought it was a Bm (or at least that's how I played it) but if you look at this video of Gavin Rossdale performing an acoustic version, it's clearly a B. My bad man!
