“G” Riff: (G Barre Chord)
        e|-----------------| * Proceeds Riff 1 in Chorus- *
        B|-----------------|
        G|-----------------| Note it, as song/shown,
        D|-----5-----5---5-| or just quick strum G chord
        A|---5-----5-------| - 8 short downstrokes, often only on E string,
        E|-3-----3-----3---|   actually sounds deeper and more eerie/cool
           1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &     to me.

                         And I cry-y   and   no  one  can
Em                            |Am                          |

Em                            |Am                          |

Em                    D/F#           |Am         D         |
cold in here, there's no one left and I wait for you.   And

nothing stops it happening and I... ... ...  knew.     I’d
C                Em           |F      C      |E      A     |
cherish all   my misery    a...lone.    (*Riff 1)

Then:    |F     C    |E        A      |(Riff 2)

VERSE 2:

Em                               |Am                            |
                         And they paid, I cry and cry for

you. Ghosts that haunt you with their sorrow I cried 'cause you were
Em                               |Am                            |
doomed. Praying to the wound that swallows all that's cold and

Em                             |
     and gratitude?       They
Am            D                |
run  to  the  pines.      It’s
Em             D/F#               |
black in here, blot out the sun and
Am            D                |
run  to  the  pines.      Our
C             Em               |
misery  runs  wild and free. And,
Am            D                |
I... ... ...  knew        the
C             Em               |(Riff 1)*
fire and  the ashes  of  his graves.

 cold......... he will win the world tonight. All the

Great tab. I think (personally) the bridge instead of playing chords E and C, it should be E and EM. It sounds a wee bit more accurate that way. Cheers.

Cool, glad someone checked this out, even if my first rater is a self-proclaimed garbagefiend, and that it makes sense. I had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to represent/explain the riffs in the chorus. And this was really the only reason for my tab - to better explain what the other tabs were trying to say (it took me hours to mix tabs found on the web into a workable version and this was my concoction). I'll try out your bridge suggestion and update if I agree. Until then, cheers back at you!
