T1: Chris Marks, vvhat_is@hotmail.com, The Tea Party, Heaven Coming
Down, I think August 99

S2: There are several versions of tab for this song floating around,
but I've played them all and they all SUCK.  I spent two hours with
WINAMP listening to the song and tabbing this version out, and it
sounds perfect.

S1: The Tea Party - Heaven Coming Down

I know there's an easier way to play it, but this is how THEY play it
(more or less)
The easy way is at the bottom.
I tried to line the lyrics up as closely as I could, but it's not quite
accurate.

(no guitar for verse 1)

With nothing to lose
you'd waste away,
obscured in exile.
They've witnessed the times
you've gone astray,
whose fault?  Now you're thinking...
There's nothing to prove...
A snapshot from the crowd to the shore, baby...

(no guitar for verse 2)

So strange are the ways
they all have changed,
still life it stays the same.
A break from the past
could make it last, oh,
maybe just a little longer.
There's nothing to prove...
A snapshot from the crowd to the shore, baby...

Full lyrics (what's in the song, not what's at the www.teaparty.com
website)

Verse 1:
With nothing to lose
you'd waste away,
obscured in exile.
They've witnessed the times
you've gone astray,
whose fault?  Now you're thinking...
There's nothing to prove
A snapshot from the crowd to the shore, baby...

Chorus 1:
And it feels now,
just like heaven's coming down

Verse 2:
So strange are the ways
they all have changed,
still life it stays the same.
A break from the past
could make it last, oh,
maybe just a little longer.
There's nothing to prove...
A snapshot from the crowd to the shore, baby...

Chorus 2:
And it feels now,
just like heaven's coming down
Your soul shakes free
as its conscience hits the ground

Bridge:
You surrender
Love under will
Rest assured baby,
You're adored

Chorus 3:
And it feels now,
just like heaven's coming down.
Your soul shakes free,
as its conscience hits the ground.
these signs, this fate,
takes the path you didn't choose.
Stay strong, keep faith,
there's a change that's coming through.

Outro:
hold on my love
hold on...

0verall i think its a pretty good tab. however, the beginning notes of each bar are all the same note. i think in the song they change a little bit per bar to give it some melody. tab version 2 of this song tries to incorporate it a little, check theirs out.
