You can play this song with just power chords of the above and
have a tremelo effect on and it’ll sound like the background guitar

Song sounds good with a piano, a distorted guitar, and drums (and singers of course)

Beginning: You can use a delay pedal or something to 
just keep the repeated notes going throughout the whole song

Starts with Gb and the repeating notes

       Gb    
let me know, do I still got time to
Fm
grow, things ain't always set in
Gb   Ab
stone, that bein' known, let me
Db
know, let me, it seems like

Chorus:
Gb
streetlights, glowin', happen to be just like
Fm
moments, passin' in front of me
      Gb                    Ab
so, i hopped in the cab and i paid my fare
       Db
see, i know my destination, but i'm just not there

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
       Gb
in the streets
       Fm
in the streets, i'm just not there
       Gb
in the streets, i'm just not there
Fm
life's just not fair

Chorus x3

Outro:
       Gb
in the streets
       Fm
in the streets, i'm just not there
       Gb       Ab
in the streets, i'm just not there
Db
life's just not fair, life's just not fair…


And that's it!  Great song, very different from his other stuff
