  CHORDS
**********
There's no audible guitar here, so I'll throw in my own suggestions for playing
for these chords on solo guitar:

 Verse:
   E6/B   F#7/A#    Amaj7  F#m7  -/G#  A7 -/A#      F#m7 G#m7
 e|---0-------0-------0-----0-----------0-----------2----4---| 
 B|---2-------2-------2-----2-----------2-----------2----4---|
 G|---1-------3-------1-----2-----------0-----------2----4---| 
 D|---2-------4-------2-----2-----------2-----------2----4---| 
 A|---2-------1-------0-----x-----------0---1-------4----6---| 
 E|-------------------------2------4----------------2----4---| 

 Chorus:
  Amaj7  F#m7   G#m7  C#m7      F#7  -/G#     A
 e|---4-----2------4-----4-------2------------5---| 
 B|---5-----2------4-----5-------2------------5---| 
 G|---6-----2------4-----4-------3------------6---| 
 D|---6-----2------4-----6-------2----6-------7---| 
 A|---------4------6-----4-------4------------7---| 
 E|---5-----2------4-------------2----4-------5---| 

 Bridge:
    B      G#7   C#m7/11  Amaj7     B
 e|---7-------4-------4-------4-------7---|
 B|---7-------4-------7-------5-------7---|
 G|---8-------5-------4-------6-------8---|
 D|---9-------4-------6-------6-------9---|
 A|---9-------6-------4---------------9---|
 E|---7-------4---------------5-------7---|



[Verse 1]

  E6/B   F#7/A#   Amaj7   F#m7   -/G#  A7 -/A#  x3
  E6/B   F#7/A#   Amaj7   F#m7  G#m7  

All I can ever be to you
Is a darkness that we knew
And this regret I've got accustomed to
Once it was so right
When we were at our height
Waiting for you in the hotel at night
I knew I hadn't met my match
But every moment we could snatch
I don't know why I got so attached
It's my responsibility
And you don't owe nothing to me
But to walk away I have no capacity


[Chorus]

  Amaj7  F#m7   G#m7  C#m7   x3
  F#7  -/G#   A  

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day but I'm grown
And in your way, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own


[Verse 2]

  E6/B   F#7/A#   Amaj7   F#m7   -/G#  A7 -/A#  x3
  E6/B   F#7/A#   Amaj7   F#m7  G#m7  

I don't understand
Why do I stress the man
When there's so many bigger things at hand
We could a never had it all
We had to hit a wall
So this is inevitable withdrawal
Even if I stop wanting you
A perspective pushes through
I'll be some next man's other woman soon


[Bridge]

  B   B   B   B  
  G#7   C#m7(add4)   Amaj7   Amaj7  
  B   B   B   B  

I can not play myself again
I should just be my own best friend
Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men


[Chorus]

  Amaj7  F#m7   G#m7  C#m7   x3
  F#7  -/G#   A 

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day but I'm grown
And in your way, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own


[Bridge]

  B   B   B   B  
  G#7   C#m7(add4)   Amaj7   Amaj7  
  B   B   B   B 

So we are history
Your shadow covers me
The sky above ablaze
That only lovers see

[Chorus]

  Amaj7  F#m7   G#m7  C#m7   x3
  F#7  -/G#   A 

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day but I'm grown
And in your way, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own


[Verse 3]

  E6/B   F#7/A#   Amaj7   F#m7   -/G#  A7 -/A#  
  E6/B   F#7/A#   Amaj7   F#m7  G#m7  

I wish I could say no regrets
And no emotional debts
Cause as we kiss goodbye the sun sets
So we are history
The shadow covers me
The sky above ablaze that lonley lovers see

[Chorus]

 Amaj7  F#m7   G#m7  C#m7 :   8x, then end on C#m.

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day but I'm grown
And in your way, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own
He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day but I'm grown
And in your way, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own
He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day but I'm grown
And in your way, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own

Whoah, yeah Gabe Bondoc does a great job there! :D ...However, he plays it in a different key than the original.

Well, it's a matter of approach to the sheet. I basically just wanted the chords as exact as possible - not minding what instrument you were playing. THEN I had to add some chords for guitar, and these voicings might not be easy, but they sound right :)
