Lyrics

She's an extraordinary girl
In an ordinary world
And she can't seem to get away
He lacks the courage in his mind
like a child left behind
like a pet left in the rain

she's all alone again
wiping the tears from her eyes
some days he feels like dying
she gets so sick of crying

she sees the mirror of herself
an image she wants to tell
to anyone willing to buy
he steals the image in her kiss
from her heart's apocalypse
from the one called whatsername

she's all alone again
wiping the tears from her eyes
some days he feels like dying
some days it's not worth trying
now that they both are finding
she gets so sick of crying

awesome tab but I think you can also play the 2nd guitar part all on the G string and play it this way... (it may be easier?)

G|---9~---7-9-10--12--10--9~--7-9--10--12-10--9~~--7-9-7~----9-7-6--4-6--4-6-7-6-4-6--|
