Verse 1
Tom: The drops of rain they fall all over
     This awkward silence makes me crazy
     The glow inside burns light upon her
     I'll try to kiss you if you let me

After Verse
Mark: (whispering) This can't be the end...

Pre-Chorus
Tom: Tidal waves, they rip right through me
     Tears from eyes worn cold and sad
     Pick me up now, I need you so bad

Chorus
Mark: Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      It gets me so
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      It gets me so...

Verse 2
Tom: Your vows of silence fall all over
     The look in your eyes makes me crazy
     I feel the darkness break upon her
     I'll take you over if you let me

After Verse
Mark: (whispering) You did this...

Pre-Chorus
Tom: Tidal waves, they rip right through me
     Tears from eyes worn cold and sad
     Pick me up now, I need you so bad

Chorus
Mark: Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      It gets me so
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      Down, down, down, down
      It gets me so...

It's the closest I've seen to the real deal, but you've made the same mistake everyone else makes: The intro is not played again as the verse! And what you have as verse 2 is was the guitar does in verse 2.

For the verse Mark slides from the 11th to the 7th on the E, strokes at the 7th about four times, slides to the seventh, then immediately slides to the fourth to repeat the second part of the intro.

Oops, I made a mistake. Where it says "slide to the seventh" after the stroking four times part, it should say "slide to the 9th".
