Soma is what they would take when hard times opened their eyes
Saw pain in a new way
High stakes for a few names
Racing with the sunbeams
Loosing against their dreams
In our eyes

When I saw her for the first time
Lips moved as her eyes closed
Heard something in his voice

And he walks out
Somehow he was trying too hard
To be like them

I am
Stop

In your eyes
And I am

Well I'm not listening no more
And his friends they keep asking for more
Oh yeah

Should be ok, and it only needs one guitar, although the ending sounds slightly
different on the song this is covered up by the extra drumming bit and the rhythm
guitar is pretty much the same as the bass but just chords so it doesnt make much
difference to the sound if it isnt there.

Album: Is this it?
Guitarist(s): Albert Hammond Jr.

Tabbed By: Tomsk

Standard Tuning

I saw these guys bang this one out on 'Saturday Night Live' so i tabbed it how
they played it. The song is played with two guitarists, but Albert plays more of
the lead....  I've tabbed evrything I can hear in this song, still a bit of loose
rhythm guitaring I haven't done, so anybody like to add that they're more than welcome too!

s = slide
b = bend
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
x = muted with palm

G|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--12--9--10--9---(x2)------9--------------(x2)-|
A|----------------------------10--10--12--10--------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|

Remember other     e|-10-
guitarist is still B|-12-
playing this like  G|-12-
a madman! ->       D|-12-
                   A|-10-
                   E|-10-

The last bit of the chorus misses out the last note, thats where all the instruments stop
on the line 'you're right it's true' and 'it's hard to explain' (last lyric of song).
Then it goes back to G, Em, G (intro)

Enjoy

This is a great song, and great to play- especially in a band.
Thats about everything.  Any questions, comments, corrections please post.
