[edit: I've changed all the "Hm" chords to "Bm". It's the same chord.]
[to all the danish readers it is an english Bm ;)]

C                                         Bm
something tells me that I'm left without a chance
                                     C
in my supicious attempts to get her close
                                   Bm
enough to close my lips around her smile
                                                   
now I can't close my eyes when she's around
       C 
she is around
 Em                                   D
passing like the wind that shapes the clouds
 Bm                    C      G
she is around, she is around


C                                           Bm
I don't know how but suddenly it has been a while
                                            C
and we've been walking in through that same front door
                                      Bm
undressing like there were no parts to hide

and calling each other names we never had
           C
you never heard
             Em
and then an unexpected turn
         D
and we hit the kerb
         Bm            C
a stupid term, a fatal word


Am
flutter girl
                    Em
killing me with her sunshine
D
sunshine
              Am
she's so unaware
      C       Am    G  D
that she's my melpomene


C             G/H
you broke the code
              Am              Em
just like I'm sure you always do
          D               C
without intentions but I know
              Em             D
that's how I broke away from you
             Bm             C
now that the clouds are obsolete
            G             Am
I hope you landed on your feet
              Em
without those evil demons
Bm
keeping you reminded of...

    C                     G/H
the war's they pulled us through
           Am                  Em
as fragile hearts ran short of glue
              D              C
as we're both running out of time
             Em               D
and seek to drown the fact in wine
             Bm          C
it should be honest and naïve
                G                Am
like we should give, we should receive
          Em
I must be jaded fading 
Bm                      Am
out of function into solitude


---Solo--

Am
flutter girl
                    Em
killing me with her sunshine
D
sunshine
              Am
she's so unaware
      C       Am    G  D
that she's my melpomene

Am
flutter girl
                    Em
killing me with her sunshine
D
sunshine
              Am
she's so unaware
      C       Am    G  D
that she's my melpomene


Note that in the second part of the B-part, "the war's they..." you have
to "play" a little around with the chords the get the right sound. If I have
the time, I'll post some tabs for that and maybe the solo. 
Cheers, GWiZ.
