Intro riff:

Verse 1:
  I've been a martyr for love 
And I will die in the flames 
As I draw my last breath 
As I'm close in on death 
                    C#    E G  
I will call out your name 

Verse 2:
  I've been a martyr for love 
Nailed up on the cross 
While you're having your fun 
As the damage is done 
                 C#    E G  
I'm assessing the cost 

Fm           Gm            G#m           E
 I knew what I was letting myself in for 
Fm           Gm            G#m           E
 I knew that I could never even the score 

Intro riff goes

Verse 3:
  I've been a martyr for love 
I need to be by your side 
I have knelt at your feet 
I have felt your deceit 
                   C#    E G  
Couldn't leave if I tried 

Verse 4 (plays in a key of G# only with bass & quieter then other 3 till the chords C# E G):
I've been a martyr for love 
Tortured every hour 
From the day I was born 
I've been moved like a pawn 
                  C#    E G  
By the greatest of powers 

Fm           Gm            G#m           E
I knew that I would have to suffer in vain 
Fm           Gm            G#m           E
A way that I would never outgrow the pain 

Outro (intro riff plays till the end):
  I've been a martyr for love 
I've been a martyr for love 
I've been a martyr for love...

Can you at least tell me which way to bend the string ? I can see that the rythm is fine but the tuning or frets are off
