Nobody has had it right so far.  And while none can be perfect, this is MUCH
more accurate than any of the others out there.   Enjoy!


 [Intro]              (looks like Glen uses his thumb to play the low F)
 e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------|
 B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------|
 G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------|
 D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------|



 [Verse 1 - same as intro] (match up the chords for the timing of lyrics)

      C               F               C               F
 e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------|
 B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------|
 G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------|
 D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------|
      C                 F               C                    F
      I don't know you, but I want you  all the more for that


 [Verse 1]

      C               F               C               F
 e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------|
 B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------|
 G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------|
 D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------|
      C                            F               C                 F
      Words fall through me, (and) always fool me, and I can't react


 [Verse 2 (this part is an approximation but is close; piano and vocals kind of 
  drown out the guitar, so just play some similar arpeggio based on the chords] 

      Am      G       F       G       Am         strum F...crescendo into Chorus
 e|---------------------------------------------------1-----1-1---1-1---1-1----|
 B|-------1-------0-------1-------0-------1-------0---1-----1-1---1-1---1-1----|
 G|-------2-------0-------2-------0-------2-------0---2-----2-2---2-2---2-2----|
 D|-----2---2---0---0---3---3---0---0---2---2---0---0-3-----3-3---3-3---3-3----|
 A|---0-------2-------3-------2-------0-------2-------3-----3-3---3-3---3-3----|
 E|---------------------------------------------------1-----1-1---1-1---1-1----|
    Am         G       F        G                 Am         G               F
And games that never a-mount to more than they're meant Will play themselves out


 [Chorus] (relatively metered strums [8th notes] with up-strums [16th notes] 
           just before each chord transition)

   C                 F                 Am                    F
   Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time

   C                  F                Am                     F
   Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice, you'll make it now


 [Verse 1]
   C               F                  C                  F
   Falling slowly, eyes that know me, and I can't go back
   C                  F             C                    F
   Moods that take me and erase me, and I'm painted black

 [Verse 2]
   Am       G          F         G                Am         G             F
   You have suffered e-nough and warred with your-self, it's time that you won

 [Chorus] 

   C                 F                 Am                    F
   Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time

   C                  F                Am                     F
   Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice, you've made it now

   C              F              Am              F
   Falling slowly sing your melo-dy, I'll sing a-long

 [Outtro] (lots of strums on F, while humming, then back to the intro once)
