Lyrics:

(live intro)

Why did you leave me here standing
Staring out at the cold
Maybe I'm just too damn empty
Maybe I'm just like my father, too poor
Maybe I'm just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
---------------------
Mysterious, blown in with the night
All this beauty captured in a frame
Visibly shaken, but never stirred
Drives them insane
I see the way she plays her men
And I know I've got to know her name

She's so beautifully broken
Shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted
Here I go again

I see the way she cast her spell
It's like drowning in moonlight
Discards them she's done
They're lost in her twilight
I watch her move from star to star
And I wonder why, why it feels so right

She's so beautifully broken
You can barely see the flaw
Especially from a distance
Which is always how I fall

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones?
The ones that never learned to let go
And why do I lie to myself
And pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so

Beautifully broken

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones?
The ones that don't know how to let go
And why do I lie to myself
And pretend that I could break her
When she's already been so

Beautifully broken
Shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted
Here I go again
Here I go again
------------------------
(live outro)

Why did you leave me here standing
Staring out at the cold
Maybe I'm just too damn empty
Maybe I'm just like my father, too poor
Maybe I'm just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Here I go again

After listening ot this song a million times, and watching Warren play it 1/2 a million times, I think that in the Intro/Bridge, the 5h7 on the D string (between the 5 and 5 on the G string) should actually be played on the A string. Otherwise, this tab is accurate - nice job.

I have to disagree with Kawboy, at least for the solo acoustic versions it's played on the D string. Also for the acoustic version it's:
--------
-----5---5--
-----5H7-5H7
-----5---5--
-0-0----
--------
