Verse: (with rhythm figure 1)
D                              G
Baby's black balloon makes her fly
D                       G
I almost fell into that hole in your life
D                               G   
And you're not thinking about tomorrow 
       (riff 1)
'cause you were the same as me 
             E    D2
But on your knees

D-G-D-G

(verse2)

Chorus:
B      A        G            D
Comin' down the world turned over
    B      A        G       D
And angels fall without you there
    B    A     G       D
And I go on as you get colder
   G       A      
Or are you someone's prayer

D-G-D-G

(verse3)

(chorus)

Bridge:
F#-G-B-A
F#-G B-A-G G-G-F#-E   (slide up to G)
F#            G             A
And there's no time left for losin'
When you stand they fall

(chorus)x2

F
All because I'm
E
And I'll become
G                  D
What you became to me

End

I have read other tabs before, and they aren't as good as this one. I'm still not sure about the intro, but that might be because they have a delay in or something on the cd. Great song though, I'm giving it a five.

I feel like correcting your tab, only the intro tho, I watched many live videos of this song and this is totally correct for the harmonics. I'm not sure what the guitar is tuned to but this is it. Add a little delay and reverb for the right effect. I love harmics and this is my fav harmonic riff along side of eve 6's think twice songs harmonic intro.
