Snow Patrol - Signal Fire

Tabbed by Alan.

Thanks to GlynisCorgan for help on the chorus.

I personally prefer:

  A E F#m7add11 Dsus2

e 0 0 0         0
B 2 0 0         3
G 2 1 2         2
D 2 2 4         0
A 0 2 4         x
E x 0 x         x

But I've written it out for people who prefer the full chord.

The electric guitar plays:

    A5      F#5     E       D2
E +-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-+
B +---------------------------------+
G +---------------------------------+
D +-7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-+
A +---------------------------------+
E +---------------------------------+ Repeat for verse

Intro: A E D A

Verse 1

A           E           F#m        D    
The perfect words never crossed my mind
                 A          E         D
'cause there was nothing in there but you
       A     E           F#m       D
I felt every ounce of me screaming out
        A         E               D
But the sound was trapped deep in me
A     E           F#m             D
All I wanted just sped right past me
        A          E           F#m   D
While I was rooted fast to the earth
  A        E                F#m      D
I could be stuck here for a thousand years
             A       E       D
Without your arms to drag me out

Chorus

A         E                     F#m      D [Slide to xxx45x]
There you are standing right in front of me
A         E                     F#m      D [Slide to xxx45x]
There you are standing right in front of me
A        E                  F#m         D [Slide to xxx45x]
All this fear falls away to leave me naked
A       E                         F#m          D (Ring out on A [xxx2xx]
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety
A   E       F#m     D
No, I won't wait forever

Verse 2

A         E              F#m  D
In the confusion and the aftermath
    A      E      D
You are my signal fire
    A        E              F#m    D
The only resolution and the only joy
       A                 E                D
Is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes

Chorus

A         E                     F#m      D [Slide to xxx45x]
There you are standing right in front of me
A         E                     F#m      D [Slide to xxx45x]
There you are standing right in front of me
A        E                  F#m         D [Slide to xxx45x]
All this fear falls away to leave me naked
A       E                         F#m          D
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety
A   E       F#m     D
No, I won't wait forever

Well, since there's no acoustic version of the song, I use primaily down strums and power chords for the verses. You can mix it up in the chorus, granted, it's still your own take on it.
