 Verse/Bridge:
This is the main riff played all the way through the song:

    Dm                G5                Dm                Am7              4x
||------5-----5-----|-----3-----3-----|-----1-----1-----|-----3-----3--/6--||
||o---6-----6-------|---3-----3-------|---3-----3-----1-|---1-----1-------o||
||------------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------||
||--0-----0-----0---|-5-----5-----5---|-0-----0-----0---|-------2----------||
||o-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-0---------------o||
||------------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------||


In the third bar of the riff she often plays around with this little fill
around the open e-string. Sometimes also at the same place in the chorus:
  Dsus2
|----0h1p0----0-----|
|---3-------3-----1-|
|-------------------|
|-0-------0-----0---|

 Chorus:
  Dm                G5                Dm                Am7
|-----5-----5-----|-----3-----3-----|-----1-----1-----|-----3-----3-----|

  Dm                G5                Dm                Bb

 LIVE VARIATIONS:

The main riff has developed since it was recorded back in '98,
so today Heather plays it like like this:
  Dm7               G                 Dm                Am7
|-------5---------|-------3---------|-------1---------|-------3-----3/6-|
|---6-------6-----|---3-------3-----|---3-------3---1-|---1-------1-----|
|-----5-------5---|-----4-------4---|-----2-------2---|-----0-----------|
|-0-------0-------|-5-------5-------|-0-------0-------|-2-------2-------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|


In the bridge she strums the chords live:
  Dm7               G                 Dm                Am7
|-5---5---5-5-----|-3---3---3-3-----|-1---1---1-1-----|-0---0---0-0-----|
|-6---6---6-6-----|-3---3---3-3-----|-3---3---3-3-----|-1---1---1-1-----|
|-5---5---5-5-----|-4---4---4-4-----|-2---2---2-2-----|-0---0---0-0-----|
|-0---0---0-0-----|-5---5---5-5-----|-0---0---0-0-----|-2---2---2-2-----|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-0---0---0-0-----|

 LYRICS
**********
Morning is almost here - let it wait
I just want to lie here awhile, tempting fate
I don't think I could breathe now with you gone
But it's not weakness it's just something I've begun

Maybe there's a light that's always on
Maybe we're not only human
Maybe there's a light that's always on
And we're not only human

When you're sleeping your ceramic
You're surrounded by little stars
Every shimmer is a searchlight
Every planet is ours
Change the street change the decade
Still the longing's left inside
But why am I too small to carry you?
Why does twilight make me cry?

When all the weight is gone
When all is said and done
We're not only human

Life is something set to music
I can hear it when I'm sad
There's a chord in every muscle
Every kiss you ever had
There's a power when you're near me
In our heads or in our bones
I know nothing but I'm guessing
When we die we're not alone
