===================================================
INFORMATION
===================================================

Beautiful song.  Some simple power chords with synthesizers and guitar
riffs that I couldn't pick up.  Knock yourself out try and figure them
if you're feeling adventurous.

If you want to play acoustic version, the chord progression is
C -> G -> Am -> F in Eb tuning.

DISTORTION TUNING: Standard or drop D
CLEAN/ACOUSTIC Gt.: Eb (every string down 1 half step)

EFFECTS: Light distortion, with medium sustain
This is what I have on my Metal Zone:

Level: 9 o'clock
Low: Max
High: 10
Mid freq: Max
Middle: 12
Dist: 11

===================================================
BEGIN: Synthesizers (play chords B->F#->G#->E)
and riffs for 4 measures
===================================================

C				G
so much more about you that you never let them see
          Am
You turn away
	   F
But not to me


C
I know how they tried to take you
G				   Am
Held you up and meant to break you down
	      F
But you can't be


C
For so long I tried to reach you
  G
I know I'm almost there
	  Am		    F
I'm close enough for you to see

===================================================
Clean/Acoustic guitar can keep playing this progression.
Basically: B5 = C, F#5 = G, G#5 = Am, E5 = F.
This is where distorted power chords come in.
===================================================

B5 -> A#5 -> G#5

B5			  F#5	
You've been hiding in the shadows
              G#5		  E5
Have you forgotten how we used to dream
B5
Let me remind you
    F#5			       G#5	
The light doesn't blind you at all
		  E5
It just helps you see
        F#5
Can you see


B5	        F#5	
Yeah you have become
                B5	   E5
Yeah you have become beautiful


B5
And I can't be the stranger
	    F#5
That's been sleeping in your bed just
      G#5		E5
Turn around and come to me
B5
I feel all the pain inside
	F#5			   G#5
And everything you been denied you feel
	     E5
It's all you feel



B5 -> A#5 -> G#5



B5			  F#5	
You've been hiding in the shadows
              G#5		  E5
Have you forgotten how we used to dream
B5
Let me remind you
    F#5			       G#5	
The light doesn't blind you at all
		  E5
It just helps you see
        F#5
Can you see



B5	        F#5	
Yeah you have become
                B5	   E5
Yeah you have become beautiful
B5	        F#5	
Yeah you have become
                B5	   E5
Yeah you have become beautiful



B5
Brush back your hair and look around you
F#5				     G#5
Feeling like the truth has found you here
		 E5
You're here with me
B5		       F#5
Let love become the mirror
	F#5		  E#
With no fear where you're from



B5	 F#5
You have become
	      G#5   F#5    E5
Yeah you have become beautiful


===================================================
MISCELLANEOUS
===================================================

Most of the percussion is played in this pattern:

x x x x x x x x
    s       s
B       B B

x = 8th note cymbal
s = snare
b = bass drum

You can accompany with an acoustic guitar and a clean guitar.
Clean gt. plays chords down, down, down, down strumming pattern (8th notes).
The real song uses a clean guitar.  I think it sounds better with acoustic.

As always, power chords are easier in drop D tuning.
