Intro:

G, G/F#, G, D

G, G/F#, G, G/F#


        Em
You grew wings
            D, Dsus4, D
On your heart
         Cadd9              E
but you let it out your ribcage
         Bm          D
and it flew into the dark

Bm, D     Em
Like a ghost
              D, Dsus4, D
Just like a ghost
         Cadd9          Em
And it flutters by my window
        Bm                D
when I need my sleep the most

Open E string x6

   Cadd9                 D
So choose my weapon and choose my way
  G                                  Em
It's easy sayin' nothing when there's nothing to say
   Cadd9                D
I'm thinking about it every day
    G                         Em
and starting to notice you're fading away

      Cadd9
You fade like a shadow
 D
Fade like a shadow
G                    Em
Fade like a shadow, fade
     Cadd9
You fade like a shadow
D
Fade like a shadow

G, G/F#
G, G/F#

          Em
You want eyes
        D, Dsus4, D
in your hands
    Cadd9           Em
and power in your pocket
    Bm              D
as I stop to watch you dance

Bm    D
with your...

Then play this over the whole 'hips swinging' and 'again again again' sections,
while muting all other strings:
e|----------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------0-0---0-------|
A|-----------3-3------------2-2-2-2---0---------|
E|---0-0-0-0-----3-3-3-3------------------------|

Should be played 6 times in total.


hips swinging
your snake hips swinging
got your hips swinging
your snake hips swinging
got your hips swinging
your snake hips swinging again

again again again...

whoa-oh you got your hips swinging
your snake hips swinging
got your hips swinging
your snake hips swinging
got your hips swinging
your snake hips swinging again
                  (keep playing the open E string)
and again and again and again


  Cadd9                   D
So choose my weapon and choose my way
    G                                  Em
It's easy sayin' nothing when there's nothing to say
    Cadd9                  D
I'm thinking about you every day
    G                 Em
and starting to notice

      Cadd9
that it's two steps forward
   D
and one step back
 G                             Em
make up in love for what you think I lack
Cadd9                   D
you've got a vampire on your neck
G                        Em
everybody knows what happens next

    Cadd9
You fade like a shadow
D
Fade like a shadow
G                    Em
Fade like a shadow, fade
   Cadd9
You fade like a shadow
D               G                Em
Fade like a shadow

   Cadd9                   D
So choose my weapon and choose my way
    G                                Em
It's easy sayin' nothing when there's nothing to say
   Cadd9            D
I'm thinking about you every day
     G       Em
and starting to notice

    Cadd9
You fade like a shadow
D
Fade like a shadow
G                    Em
Fade like a shadow, fade
    Cadd9
You fade like a shadow

Fade like a shadow

Could you change the C chord in the chorus to a Caad9? Just a thought :)

I'm pretty sure the E's in this song should be Em's. You ought to correct that. Otherwise, great.

And, like coolyclo says, Caad9
