ok this is similar to the tab of Ash's 'Sometimes' i made a while ago. i looked at the
already here and picked out the parts which sounded right. i then made a few alterations
expanded upon the outro riff. i take no claim to the entire work as i completed it with 
use of the tabs already online and they deserve more praise of attempting the track first.

Anyways enjoy.

A-7-                  A-x-x
E-5-                  E-x-x

Chorus:
                           C
And when she lets me slip away
    G           A
She turns me on and
Am                F
All my violence gone
            Am
Nothing is wrong
       F
I just slip away and then
A#   C
I am gone
    G            Am
Nothing is wrong
      F          Am
She turns me on
          F
I just slip away and then
A#   C
I am gone

repeat once and then the outro is:

A
He`s on, He's on, He's on, yeah
C
He`s on, He's on, He's on, yeah
F
He`s on, He's on, He's on, yeah
G                        A#
He`s on, He's on, He's on, yeah

and this riff played over:

e----------------------|
B-/10------------------|
G-----8-9--------------|
D---------10-10-9\-----|
A------------------5-7-|
E----------------------|

this sequence is repeated a bit, then after a while it becomes purely instrumental, so
until the song abruptly ends.
