Okay I'm only covering Guitar Two (Rhythm Guitar, played by Martin) cause I
only do Guitar Two in the songs I play. I will include the small riff
played by Paul (Guitar One, Lead) though. You can find the video where they
performed at Sprint Live Music lounge at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZjiPZEY1-M

Now, the tuning is in Open D. (DADF#AD)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chords used:
Open Chords used are:

C: 000000
Fsus2: 002302
Am: 020300
Fsus2: 500300

And Power Chords used are:

D5: 000xxx               - I'm not too sure about these, I'm just giving
A5: x0230xx              - names just to make known what chord to play.
Bm5: x203xx             -- BTW you can just hold the Open Chords and play
G5: 5x03xx              -- these Power Chords. Come to think of it, they're
                        -- not even Power Chords at all =_= Except for D5.

 Oh and by the way, there's a Capo on Third fret for both guitars.
 *Very important*

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

**BPM: 140**

                    1..2..3..4...

Lead Guitarist:

                               Intro:
                                      -Performance Notes-

d |--0-0-0-0-0-0------|       And you play this all in 8th Notes at
A |--5-5-4-4-5-5-0-0--|       Fortissimo (FF). Play this four times
D |--------------3-3--|       then Guitar Two comes in with chords.
F#|-------------------|       As Guitar Two is playing, keep playing
A |-------------------|       this riff for another 8 times.
D |-------------------|       Then onto Verse.


Rythem Guitarist:

              -Performance Notes-
I was a too lazy to do the strumming pattern, but it's relatively easy to
play. Just listen to the video stated above. Played at Mesoforte (mF)

                              Intro:

      D (2 bars)    Asus 2 (2 bars)    Bm (2 bars)

      Gsus (strum once) Bm (strum once) Asus2 (complete the last bar)


Lead Guitarist:

                                   Verse:

             -Performance Notes-
I didn't take the effort to tab Lead Guitarist after this, but it should be
played Palm Muted with similar notes to the Intro.


Rythem Guitarist:

             -Performance Notes-
From here on, just listen to the strumming pattern and catch on.
Everything is palm muted until the second-half of the verse.

             C5
              Brown eyes and lungs filled up with smoke
             F5
              Fast lives are stuck in the undertow
            Bm5                                     F5
               But you know the places I wanna go...

(Open chords from here)    D                                       Asus2
             Cause Oh Oh Oh I've got a sickness you've got the cure.
                                                          Am
              You've got the spark I've been looking for.
                                                      Gsus2 (strum once)
              And I've got a plan- We walk out the door.


Pre-chorus:

                                Am
             You know you wanna just let go
                           Fsus2
             It's time to roll down the windows
                      Am
             Singing Oh Oh Oh We got all we need so
             Gsus2      Asus2 (after a few strums, mute guitar)
             Here we go.

Chorus:
                     C                        Fsus2
             Turn it up. It's Five Minutes to Midnight
                                     Am
             You're coming home with me tonight.
             Fsus2                              Fsus2
             I can't get enough; shakin' me up. Turn it up!
             C                           Fsus2
             Alright, at Five Minutes to Midnight
                                     Am
             You'll see our name in city lights.
                    Fsus2           Am             Fsus2
             We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop
             (NO CHORD)      (Riff played by Lead Guitarist)
             And come alive

Verse 2:
         -Performance Notes-
Palm mute like Verse 1.

                       C5                                  F5
             We could, pack up and leave all our things behind
                                           Bm5
             No fast or fiction or storyline.
                                                     F5
             Cause I need you for more than just for tonight.
                          D (strum twice, don't let ring)      
             You're Oh Oh all I care
                                        Fsus2
             I can't stop my breathin in
                                             Am
             I'm weak and you are my medicine.
                                                 Gsus2 (strum once)
             I won't stop 'till I am under you skin.

Pre-chorus:

                                Am
             You know you wanna just let go
                           Fsus2
             It's time to roll down the windows
                      Am
             Singing Oh Oh Oh We got all we need so
             Gsus2      Asus2  (same mute pattern as Verse 1)
             Here we go.

Chorus:
                     C                        Fsus2
             Turn it up. It's Five Minutes to Midnight
                                     Am
             You're coming home with me tonight.
             Fsus2                              Fsus2
             I can't get enough; shakin' me up. Turn it up!
             C                           Fsus2
             Alright, at Five Minutes to Midnight
                                     Am
             You'll see our name in city lights.
                    Fsus2           Am             Fsus2         
             We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop...

            (during the like 1.5 seconds between here and the Bridge,
             the D chord is strummed for 2 notes or so...
             I think...)

Bridge:
           Note- This part is played by Paul for Rythem.
           I'm not entirely sure it's what they played at
           Sprint Live Music Lounge, but it sounds accurate... at least...

           Am
             And when the clock strikes twleve
                      Fsus2
             Will you find another boy to go and kiss and tell
                       Am     Fsus2     Fsus2
             Cause you know, I never will.
           Am
             I think we should strike a match
                       Fsus2
             And we'll hold it to the wind and see how long it'll last
                    Am          Fsus2     Fsus2
             We can make the time stand still

Interlude:

           C.. C.. C.. C..

Chorus:
           -Performance Notes-
           To make this part sound really cool and all,
           try playing it at Mesopiano (mP) or Piano(P).

                     C                        Fsus2
             Turn it up. It's Five Minutes to Midnight
                                     Am
             You're coming home with me tonight.
             Gsus2                              (NO CHORD)
             I can't get enough; shakin' me up. Turn it up!

             C                           Fsus2
             Alright, at Five Minutes to Midnight
                                     Am
             You'll see our name in city lights.
                    Fsus2           Am             Fsus2         
             We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop

Final Chorus:
                       C                         Fsus2
             Turn it - Just let go. It's time to just let go.
                          Am
             It's time to roll down the windows.
             Fsus2
             We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop. Turn it-
             C                         Fsus2
             Just let go. It's time to just let go.
                          Am
             It's time to roll down the window; roll down the windows
                   Fsus2            Am             Fsus2
             We'll make the clock stop; Make your heart drop
                  D (strum once, let ring)
             And come alive.

Last few chords:

             Am, Fsus2, Fsus2, C

                               Martin: Thank You.

              And that's it.
              Just be reminded that this was tabbed out to directly
              replicate the performance at Sprint Live Music Lounge.

              Have fun!
