Guitar 1 plays G#5 A5 E5 B5

G#5              A5                E5             B5
Well I guess you left me with some feathers in my hand
Did it make it any easier to leave me where I stand?

*(Guitar 2 plays first three measures of intro)
I guess there might not be too many who would stand beside you now
Where'd you come from?     Where am I going?

          *(Guitar 2 plays fill 1)
Why'd you leave me 'till I'm only good for...

Chorus: (Guitars 1 & 2 play chords indicated)

E
Waiting for you

G#m    B
All my sins...
            F#m             A
I said that I would pay for them if I could
come back to you
All my innocence is wasted on the dead and dreaming


                                                  *(w/ fill 2)
Every night these silohuettes appear above my head
Little angels of the silences that climb into my bed and whisper

* (w/ first 3 measures of intro, then fill 1)
Every time I fall asleep    Every time I dream
"Did you come?  Would you lie?
Why'd you leave us 'till we're only good for...

Suck my blood   break my nerve   offer me their arms
Well, I will not be an enemy of anything

Perfect. 5 stars, though it would help to mention the palm muting at the start of the third verse.
