"Breathe" from Exciter (2001)

The first part of theverse has two riffs that are repeated, an Am and a Gm riff:

  Am(V)           Gm
e|-------5--------------3---------------------------------------------------
B|-----5---8-7b-------3---6-5b----------------------------------------------
G|---5--------------3-------------------------------------------------------
D|-7--------------5---------------------------------------------------------
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The second part of the verse uses a Fm riff and a different Am riff:
  Am           Fm
e|-------0-----------1------------------------------------------------------
B|-----1-----------1--------------------------------------------------------
G|---2-----------1----------------------------------------------------------
D|-2-----------3-----------------------------------------------------------
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Strum Am and Fm chords on the bridge:
    Am    Fm
e|---0-----1----------------------------------------------------------------
B|---1-----1----------------------------------------------------------------
G|---2-----1----------------------------------------------------------------
D|---2-----3----------------------------------------------------------------
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
(note:  try vibratin' the whole Fm chord to get the cool little effect in some places on CD)

The outro is like this x2
e|-------0-------0---------------1-------1----------------------------------
B|-----1---1---3---3-1---------1---1---3---3-1------------------------------
G|---2-------2---------2-----1-------1---------1----------------------------
D|-2---------------------2-3---------------------3--------------------------
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

and then this once
e|-------0-------0---------------1------------------------------------------
B|-----1---1---3---3-1---------1--------------------------------------------
G|---2-------1---------2-----1----------------------------------------------
D|-2---------------------2-3------------------------------------------------
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

and then repeat the whole outro thing again and again to fade.  So some idea of timings:

Intro: Am(V)

Verse 1:

I heard a rumour
               Am(V)
They travel far
You know what it's like
                 Gm
The way people are
They talk and they talk
                          Am(V)
Though they don't understand
They'll whisper and whisper
                 Gm
And lie on demand

Verse 1.5

Please tell me now
I want to know
I have to hear it from your lips
              Am  Fm
Say it's not so

Verse 2
(same as last verse) 

I heard it on Monday
And I laughed a while
I heard it on Tuesday
I managed to smile
I heard it on Wednesday
My patience was tried
I heard it on Thursday
And I hurt inside
I want to know
The depths of your mind
Tell me this whole thing is madness
And we're doing fine

(Bridge - strum here)

Fm                      Am
Put your little hand in mine
And believe in love
Fm                  Am
Put your head on my chest
    Am
And breathe love
Fm
Breathe love
Fm
Breathe love
Fm
Breathe love

Am Fm Am

Verse 3 (a lil different):

                   Am(V) 
I heard it from Peter
                    Am(V)
Who heard it from Paul
                       Gm
Who heard it from someone
                  Gm
I don't know at all
                  Am(V)
I heard it from Mary
                    Am(V)
Who heard it from Ruth
                    Gm
Who swore on the bible
                     Gm
She's telling the truth
                   Am(V)
I heard it from Simon
                     Am(V)
Who heard it from James
                   Gm
Confirming with Sarah
                 Gm
That I was to blame
                    Am(V)
I heard it from Joseph
                    Am(V)
Who heard it from John
                      Gm
Who said with conviction
                    Gm
That all hope was gone

Verse 3.5:

So I need to know
Your alibis
I need to hear that you love me
                    Am  Fm
Before you say goodbye
                    Am Fm
Before you say goodbye
                    Am Fm
Before you say goodbye
                    Outro
Before you say goodbye
