Lyrics:

He's got his work, and she comes easy
They each come around when the other is gone
Me, I think I got stuck somewhere in between
I wouldn't confide in the prodigal son,
The dye has been cast, the battle is won
The bullets were blanks, a double locked gun
I couldn't admit to a minute of fun.

And they come and they come and they come
I accept it with a gentle tongue
No words spoken, no ? kept

Take it, stomp twice, ring bell
Tether that ringing, freeze
Enough with the rifle and talk already
We all know what it means
Take this conversation to your great divide
I can only swallow what I ate,
And I don't hate him, and I don't hate her.

And they come and they come and they come
I accept it with a gentle tongue
No heart broken, no ? kept

Don't talk to me about being alone
Don't talk to me about being alone
Don't talk to me about being alone

Reach for each other before you leave
Reach peace, P-E-A-C-E
Don't threaten me with a gentle tease,
Don't threaten me with angry
Please please please don't try to tell me what I am

And they come and they come and they come
I accept it with a gentle tongue
No words spoken, no ? except

Don't talk to me about being alone
Don't talk to me about being alone
Don't talk to me about being alone....

Ends on Em.

FRETLESS (Version 2)

From: David G Gels 

Here's my tab for "Fretless", REM's song off the Until the End of the
World soundtrack....a beautiful, haunting song, and one that I was
surprised not to find already posted....here goes...

Fretless
--------

+|-----0----2----3----2----2|----0----2----3----3------|----0---------------|
+|----0-0----0----0----0----|---0-0----0----0----0-----|---0-0--------------|
+|--------------------------|--------------------------|-------etc..--------|
+|-2------2----2----2----2--|-2-----2----2----2----2---|-2------------------|(repeat)
+|--------------------------|--------------------------|--------------------|
+|-0------------------------|-0----------------------2~|-0------------------|

That's the basic tune, right there.

before the chorus, it just repeats -3-
				   --0-
				   ----
				   ---2-
				   -----
				   ----- which leads to
     B		(slide)   	A		D     D  A  E
They come and they come....

     B		(slide)		A		D

pre-verse: +---0---0---|----0---------------|
       +--1---1---1|---0-0------------------|
       +-----------|------------------------|
       +-----------|-2----------------------|(back to main riff)
       +-2---0-----|------------------------|
       +---------2-|-0----------------------|

well, that's it.  I'm not too sure about the "don't talk to me" part...I
usually just use a D with a walking down bass line, and it sounds
alright, although it's wrong.
