Intro

Bm F#m G
Bm A G
Bm F#m G x2

The intro riff goes something like this.....
E-------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------|
G-------------------------------------------|
D---------------------7/9\7-----------------|
A-7/9-9-9-12-99-12-99--------9999999--------|

Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
Learning theres nothing to gain from advice
Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
Hey doubt, come on around any time
D           G            A              Bm       F#m      G
Anyhow mistakes are what lead you through life
Bm              A                     G           Bm   (RIFF See below)
Down and out's only if you think up and in's right
Bm                  D         A                  Bm        F#m      G

I've gone along with the sins that are versions of you
Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
But guidlines were all I had time to get through
D          G        A                    Bm      F#m   G
It's like reading of love that's gone wrong
Bm
If time was laid out like that
D                 A          Bm           (RIFF)
Everything would occur at once
A            G                  Bm    F#m
And all the laws were laid down twice
A             G                 Bm    F#m
And the clouds were doubled in the sky
A             G                 Bm    F#m
And being tall meant lacking height
A             G                 Bm    F#m    G
And being wrong meant being right
Bm
You're perfect
D               A              Bm     F#m    G
You fit snuggly right in the lie
Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
One host is going to teach how to die
D
Lay down
G        A                    Bm      F#m   G
The darkness tonight is so bright
Bm                   A             G        Bm (RIFF)
Reasons There's one for each time cars collide
A         G          Bm       F#m
I hear that telling moments divide
A         G          Bm       F#m
And the only important moments
A    G              Bm      F#m
Are the in between times
A     G                Bm   F#m
And being confused is an exercise
F#m              G                Bm
I'm missing your thoughts tonight
F#m                   A         G        Bm
But we reach out to what's out of our sight
F#m              G                Bm
I'm missing your thoughts tonight
F#m                   A         G        Bm
But we reach out to what's out of our sight


The riff can be played two ways depending what you feel is right: -
