[picked verse]...

the guitar pretty much follows this pattern for every line in the verse,
with some variation of the picking and hammer-ons in the last bar of
D(sus9).

    I think my heart was designed to fade and lose color
 to turn inside out and    wash             in the rain
it loses    all         perfection         in cold water
   so     the   desired    look               is obtained

    aaash-es


[the melody for this verse is pretty much the same as "I think my heart
was designed to fade and lose color.....", except where shown]

                        B--3---0-3-----|

I think my eyes were made for deception


interpreting lovers will call what they want the truth
all I have seen burning behind these mirrors

of the reflection they see is all that I pursue
[last line uses same melody as 2nd line]


so it rises higher and higher
like this filthy heat above the city sky
and I think I'm going mad dancing in the fire
as if I'm only here to prove
there are mountains I could move

so love is spent dancing in the fire
too high the cost and too quick the pain
and all that's left for the outsider

    dy -  ing         for want of sleep           [atempo]


I think my lifetime was stolen from a movie         ["I think..."
the one where they are trying to solve the crime     melody again]
but the prisoner is always one step before them
and everyone's running trying to stop him in time
[4th line uses melody from 2nd line]

so it rises higher and higher
like this filthy heat above this city sky
I think I'm going mad dancing in the fire
as if I'm only here to prove

e -3---3---3--3--3---3----5----- [different melody this time]
there are lovers I could moooove


so love is spent dancing in the fire
oh, too high the cost, yeah and too quick the pain
and all that's left for the outsider

* in this tab means accent this note (hit it hard or better still, pick
the string by -hooking it away- from the body of the guitar then letting
it go)

++ note the strumming of the D(xx0232), the Dsus4(xx0233) and
Dsus9(xx0230)

"m" in the strummed verses means strum it hard and then mute the strings
with your strumming hand *immediately* after you have strummed it, to
give a percussive sound

 -x- is strum, but mute at the neck *as* you strum it

h is a hammer on
p is a pull off

enjoy
