Intro 
Riff 1 [2x]

Verse 1
F#m11  
Two jumps in a week
          Asus2                               E   Esus4  E
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy
F#m11
Flying on your motorcycle
Asus2                              E    Esus4  E   
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
      F#m11
You'd kill yourself for recognition
Asus2                      E    Esus4  E
Kill yourself to never ever stop
    F#m11
You broke another mirror
       Asus2                         E   Esus4  E
You're turning into something you are not

Chorus
               F#m11  Asus2
Don't leave me high 
               E
Don't leave me dry
               F#m11  Asus2
Don't leave me high 
               E
Don't leave me dry

Interlude - Riff 1 [1x]

Verse 2
F#m11
Drying up in conversation
Asus2                         E    Esus4  E
You will be the one who cannot talk
F#m11
All your insides fall to pieces
Asus2                                E              Esus4  E  
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
F#m11
They're the ones who'll hate you
         Asus2                          E         Esus4  E
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
F#m11
They're the ones who'll spit at you
    Asus2                E       Esus4  E
You will be the one screaming out

Chorus

Interlude 2 - F#m11 Asus2  E  [2x]

Bridge
         F#m11
It's the best thing that you ever had
    Asus 2                         E  
The best thing that you ever, ever had
         F#m11                 
It's the best thing that you ever had
    Asus2                           E    Esus4  E
The best thing you ever had has gone away

Chorus - [2x]

Look, it's not bad, and it sounds half way right, but there are a lot better versions out there. The correct way is
actually easier to play IMO.

hey this tab is fine!
i've been looking for the chords and these sound alright

nice but hey, this one put's bread on the table.
