About this tab version
This version does not include the picking in the intro, which is done by two guitars. The timing of strumming and the way the lyrics are stretched in certain parts can be a little confusing, but if you listen to the song a few times you'll understand which words to stretch and when. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The song is normally played with two guitars picking, but I find it works with one guitar like this.

The intro starts with an arpeggiated Dm chord, picking up from the highest string, (e)
followed by strumming, and that arpeggiation is done 4 times before going into the first verse.

F is played as x1233x, and the G at the end of the Chorus is played by sliding up the fretboard (x3455x)

The end of 'doubt' combines with 'ahh' in the break, 
and has the arpeggiated Dm chord at the beginning of the break, and then just before F.

(Dm) x4

[Verse 1]
Dm  F   Am       C
Shi-ver-ing, I'm looking in at
Gm          F         C
People that I call my friends
       Dm  F   Am           C
Just a sil-hou-ette, with a cigarette, and
Gm F          A
No idea who I am

There were songs, in these eyes
            Dm            F                       A  F
Now they're gone, if only I had held the light in
F    G  A#
Ahh, Oh Oh Oh

[Verse 2]
Dm    F   Am              C
Flesh and teeth, they are smiling and so
Gm       F                  A
Happy to burn through their time
      Dm    F    G
And I don't know when
                       Am       A
But I lost the will to save her mind

            Dm      F              Am    C
Now they're all, stumbling to some other house
              A#           F         C
Though I've tried, I can't find, any interest now
   Dm         F               Am       C
It takes, the guilt of just a small mistake
      A#        F            C                          Dm
To puncture the joy so it's poisoned by doubt, by doubt

Dm        F    Dm   A#      Dm
Ahh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh Ohh Ohh

[Verse 3]
Dm     F     
I just wanted to face
    Dm                     F                 A#
The expanse but those dead ends have come to haunt me
I have tried to understand
             F            A#
How I should operate this body
And I was sure, but I was wrong 
        F              A#
If only I had held the light in
    A                 Dm
The darkness would be gone
