And there’s affection to rent 
The age of the understatement 
Before the attraction ferments 
Kiss me properly and pull me apart

Kiss me properly and pull me apart

I think the intro/verse/break part goes Bm, A instead of Bm, F#. But it's a gooden anyway :)

the intro on this version above also sings the verses with a B minor and he drops on the A using his first finger almost as an A5 chord. But still a great tab by ear mate. thanks
