So, my name is Andrew, and I've never made a tab before, or played from one, so bear 
me. Here it goes.

...:BASS INTRO:...

Bass 1: (The high one) (Playing simultaneously) (Only found in the BASS INTRO)
Lyrics: None.
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-12---12---11---16---14---12-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play that 3 times, then the cymbals and guitars come in, and that's the rest of Bass 1.


Bass 2: (Playing simultaneously)
Lyrics: None.
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--5--5--5--5--5--5--0--0--0--0--0--0------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play this 3 times, then the cymbals and guitars come in, and that's the rest of the Intro.


...:FULL BAND INTRO:...
Lyrics: None.
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----4-----------4-----------7--------------11--9-----------------------------------------------|
A|-2-----2-----2-----2-----5-----5-----0---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat this one more time.


...:1ST VERSE:...
Lyrics: God bless the daylight.
G|----4------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------7-7------7-7------------11--9-12-----------------|
A|-2-----5--7--9-9-9---2--2-2---2-0-2-4-5---5-5-----5--5-----5---0-0-0---------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat once more to finish out the first verse.

...:FULL BAND INTRO:...(again)
Lyrics: None.
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----4-----------4-----------7--------------11--9-----------------------------------------------|
A|-2-----2-----2-----2-----5-----5-----0---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


...:2ND VERSE:...(same bass part as first verse)
Lyrics: God damn the black night.
G|----4------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------7-7------7-7------------11--9-12-----------------|
A|-2-----5--7--9-9-9---2--2-2---2-0-2-4-5---5-5-----5--5-----5---0-0-0---------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(Repeat once more to finish out the second verse)


...:PRE-CHORUS:... (I think that's what it's called haha)
Lyrics: And together there.
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2------------------------------0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0-(4moretimes)|
E|----------------------------3-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-3-----------------------------------------|

Lyrics: And i held you closer.
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------9----------|
A|2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2------------------------------0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0-------------|
E|----------------------------3-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-3-----------------------------------------|

...:FULL BAND INTRO:...(again)
Lyrics: None.
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----4-----------4-----------7--------------11--9-----------------------------------------------|
A|-2-----2-----2-----2-----5-----5-----0---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(Repeat one more time)


...:Outro:...(The rest of the song)
Lyrics: Do you remember the JAMC?
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---3---5-------------------------------------------------------------------|

For the rest of the song it just alternates between the G(3) and the A(5)

And that's We Looked Like Giants, a sweet song by death cab. Go buy their new cd, it's 
good.

You don't need two Basses for the Intro
You can play:

G|-7-----------------------4-----------11-----9--------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0-0-0----------------------|
E|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----------------------------------------------|

I don't know if it's right, but just try it.

double stops in the intro; i'm pretty sure the first is:

G--------------------
D---10-------10------
A---12-12-12-12-12-12
E--------------------
