VERSE 2:(Same of VERSE 1)
You in the sea on a decline breaking the sea <--No guitar for this line
Watching the lights go down letting the cables sleep

BRIDGE 2:(Same of BRIDGE 1)
Whatever you say it's all alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's all right

CHORUS 2:(Same of CHORUS 1 but add the same chords for last lines)
Silence is not their way
We need to talk about it 
Heaven is on the way
We'll wrap the world around it
Heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way

BRIDGE 3:

Try moving everything a half of a step down, and tell me how that sounds. That was the way I learned how to play it.

accurate, as far as i can tell! nice job. only thing is: when you play it like that your guitar must be tuned 1/2 step down, right?

I agree that it was probably recorded a half step down. Theres a few things that i think make it sound better to me, maybe i'm wrong but here goes:
I think the first sentence of the chorus should be:
D F# A
"Silence is not the way"

And the B note in the chorus on the second "if heaven is on the way" should be an F#.

On the 3rd bridge I think it should be:
D Bm
"I'm a stranger in this town" instead of the other way around.

Thanks for the tab, it was very clear and helpful.

I want to post or [tab]
