Standard Tuning EADGBe

There is a picking rhythm throughout song that alternates the bass note between the root 
and it's fifth, but that note may be played by a second guitar because it's very and 
in the song, but to get the feel for it it's something like this:

    B                                          E
e|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----4--x--4-----4-x-4----4--x--4-----4-x-4-----0-x-0-----0-x-0--|
G|----4--x--4-----4-x-4----4--x--4-----4-x-4-----1-x-1-----1-x-1--|  etc...
D|---(4)-x-(4)--4---x-----(4)-x-(4)--4---x-------2-x-2-----2-x-2--|
A|--2--------------------2------------------------------2---------|
E|---------------------------------------------0------------------|

Played with a down-up motion. All chords in the song are played like that.


Intro: B for 4 measures

Verse:

         B                             E
You can compliment me on the style of my hair
         B                                    E
Give me marks out of ten for the clothes that I wear
     B                              E
You probably thought I had more upstairs
       C#m               D#m                  B
I disappoint you, I can see through your perfect smile

    B                          E
He likes to read books written for girls
  B                                 E
Prides himself on being a man of the world
           B                         E
It’s in the darkest places he gets his thrills
             C#m                D#m                 B
He will disappoint you, if you see through his perfect smile

Chorus:

E                      B
I think separation is ok
 E                             B
You’re no star to guide me anyway
    E                 B
You only wanted me to play
    C#m                D#m
The fool
              B
Play by your rule

Interlude:

Verse:

B                                E
Now my door has swollen from the rain
    B                               E
God knows we’ll never see her face again
B                            E
People get shattered in many ways
             C#m                D#m                   B
They can disappoint you if you see through their perfect smiles

Chorus:

E                      B
I think separation is ok
        E                             B
'Cause you’re no star to guide me anyway
    E                 B
You only wanted me to play
    C#m                D#m
A fool
              B
Play by your rule
    C#m                D#m
A fool
              B
Play by your rule

End on B.
