Fantastic new song from Travis from the album The Boy With No Name. You'll struggle to 
a better live band.

I messed about on my guitar for about half an hour and came up with this. I'm pretty 
this is about right. It sounds a wee bit like 'Side'.

Capo 3rd Fret

Em         Emadd9 Em    Emadd9
All these visions in my head
Em                Emadd9         D    Em
Should've gone to bed before the watershed
Em       Emadd9   Em       Emadd9
Some are live and some are dead
Em        Emadd9                 D       Em
makes no diferrence when they're in your head

Em, Emadd9 (x 3) then D, Em (repeat this x 2)

Verse 2:
Em       Emadd9 Em   Eadd9
Keep the door open a crack
Em           Emadd9    D    Em
so I can see them when they attack
Em       Emadd9     Em       Emadd9
some are white and some are black
Em       Emadd9                  D       Em
makes no difference when they're on your back

CHORUS:
       C     D    Em
And I can't stop crying.
      C      D    Em
And I can't stop trying.
         C   D   G     G/F#  Em7

With my Eyes Wide Open

Em, Emadd9 (x 3) then D, Em (repeat this x 2)

Verse 3:
Em        Emadd9   Em       Eadd9
Count the sheep jumping the fence
Em            Emadd9               D       Em
so I can see (something!) when I'm feeling tense
Em  Emadd9       Em   Emadd9
dis-believe hung with suspense
Em        Emadd9       D   Em
I die down with my own defence

CHORUS:
       C     D    Em
And I can't stop crying.
      C      D    Em
And I can't stop trying.
         C   D   G     G/F#  Em7
Cuz the day is dying, dying, dying
         C    D   Em
With my Eyes Wide Open

Em, Emadd9 (x 3) then D, Em (repeat this x 2)

Verse 4:
Em         Emadd9 Em    Emadd9
All these visions in my head
Em                Emadd9         D    Em
Should've gone to bed before the watershed
Em       Emadd9   Em       Emadd9
Some are live and some are dead
Em        Emadd9                 D       Em
makes no diferrence when they're in your head

CHORUS:
       C     D    Em
And I can't stop crying.
      C      D    Em
And I can't stop trying.

Cuz the day is dying, dying, dying
         C    D   Em
With my Eyes Wide Open

Actually the chords are right (apart from Emadd9), it's just he hasn't tabbed the tune just the chords. This isn't exactly right but the way I tried to play it was playing the open strings instead of an Em every eigth beat, which isn't exactly what travis do but sounds good enough. And to the person who left the above comment if you think the chords are wrong tab it yourself rather than leaving a wholly unhelpful comment.

all the song is, is for the Verse Em and D that's it and for the chorus it's C,D,Em that is the entire song that is the way Fran plays it listen to the song and go on youtube last time I check there was a video of them playing it live it was a bit shaky but you can make out the chords to be the ones above I am still trying ti figure out what andy plays in the song it is a short riff but he plays under Fran during the song so if there is any conflict let me know and I will try and resolve it
