E|-0000000-0-0000000-0-0000000-0-0000000-0---------------| x5 (on fifth time, slowly 
lift the palm mute so that the chords are ringing by he time the chorus stars.)



When she sleeps, there is a fever dream, yeah

It brings a night terror to harm this fragile bird

She speaks in tongues, her words they come undone, yeah ( Guitar 2 plays INTROx4 here as well)

And with a wayward mind she struggles through the night


CHORUS 1 *you can work he strumming patterns yourself there not too hard ;)*

                              (guitar 2 can do picking around the chords)

   All...            that I can do.....

   Is hope...        she makes it through...

Through the night, Through the night (<--verse comes in after the first night)


VERSE 2: (same guitar as first verse)

These cold nightmares, they make her worse for wear

Lost in the dark, she's got a heavy heart

And when she wakes, In her fragile state (Guitar 2 plays INTRO x4 here)

Well she calls my name, hoping that I keep her safe


CHORUS 2 (same chords but x4)

   All...            that I can do.....

   Is hope...        she makes it through...


After the second chorus is the solo, i haven't worked this out as i used an acoustic 
version, hopefully i will soon. But heres he other guitar.

During Solo: (palm muted and chunking again. basically he firs chord in the the verse.)

Thanks for this...this tab helped me correct an egregious mistake I've been making in the verses' fretted notes for months!
