This is a great song by a great band. I think I like it better acoustic too! 
This is my first tab ever. I'm pretty sure is close to perfect, please rate and comment.

Alright the guitar is tuned down a half-step:
Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-eb

Key:
h: hammer on

___________________________________________________________

I got the message long before you said you knew
There was no chance of us at all
With no velocity and empty-headed hard and far-too-long
I spent two years alone with you
Just when I thought I had forgotten
You came back soft without a sound

You said we were an accident
With accidents you’ll never know what could have been
So we were an accident
You’ll always be my favorite one

You hit the road and left me an ocean
I can't swim in the silence of your skin-skin please let me in
Side the times we never had right
Inside two years alone with you

You said we were an accident
With accidents you’ll never know what could have been
So we were an accident
You’ll always be my favorite one

We could have been (We could have been again)
Instead of accidental running always running (why can’t you believe)
We could have been (We could have been again)

Long winded promises of future company
Up close the sound remains the same
Without the reign of terror over every momentary change
We are exactly as before

You hit the road and left me an ocean
I can't swim in the silence of your skin-skin please let me in
Side the time I had to forget you
Inside no chance of us at all

Overall, really great job. But I think these chords used throughout the song are wrong:


intro

guitar 1
0:00
eb|--202020--2-02023--202020--2-02023---|
Bb|--333333--3-33333--333333--3-33333---|

Ab|--222222--2-22222--222222--2-22222---|
Eb|--xxxxxx--x-xxxxx--xxxxxx--x-xxxxx---|


I think it should be more like this:
