So here goes Cry on Demand by Gomez, of their alubm How We Operate, awesome album:
It's kinda weird trying to show the rythm and patterns with the cords, but should be easy to
figure out listening to the song


The intro/chorus is based on a little pattern with Dsus2 Asus4 and G that goes something like this:
(You can improvise a picking pattern or just strum)

    Dsus2        A   Asus4    G     Asus4   A

[Chorus]
Follow Fig. 1 (x4)

        I wish I could cry on demand,
        Boo Hoo, Boo Hoo
        Given all these troubles on my mind,
        The tears won't come out.

      I've been shaking, shaking in my boots
      Every time I hear my telephone 

      ring, it can't possibly be you,
      You never call,
      Not since my little accident.

[Pre-Chorus]

      Bb         D      Gm
      I didn't mean to cause any trouble
      Bb         D          Gm  F  Eb
      I didn't know we were so serious
      Bb         D            Gm
      Yeah, I didn't mean to burst our bubble
              Eb             F
      It can only float for so long

[Verse]
Follow Fig. 2 (x3)

      Now I realise, I realise they were wrong,
      Cause what happens in Vegas,
      Don't take very long,

      To travel accross continents,
      And onwards overseas,
      Onto our little island,
      To our city, our home,
      But

[Pre-Chorus]

      Bb         D      Gm
      I didn't mean to cause any trouble
      Bb         D          Gm  F  Eb
      I didn't know we were so serious
      Bb         D            Gm
      Yeah, I didn't mean to burst our bubble
              Eb             F
      It can only float for so long


[Chorus]
Follow Fig. 1 (x4)

        Sometimen I wish I could cry on demand,
        Boo Hoo, Boo Hoo
        Given all these troubles on my mind,
        The tears won't come out.


Now a short interlude with the verse pattern but extending the G instead of going back to F
    D      D   C          D      D   F          G                      G#
