	                 BLOC PARTY - We Were Lovers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By: Truck89
e-mail: dyslexic_potato@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard (EADG)

This track is one of the b-sides from the Weekend in the City sessions, and
is one of my personal favorites from Bloc Party, extremely underrated.


Bass stays silent for the intro, enters same time as the vocals...
