Idlewild - A modern Way of letting go

This song is tabbed in Drop D tuning and it's the best song I've heard so far from Idlewild

guitar 2 comes in with a slide down the strings then the above riff is continued
but the open D5 is played at the end of the sequence.

guitar one strums this G#5 the whole time, but seems to emphasise slightly on the
parts indicated. (played throughout verse)

Lyrics (http://www.sing365.com/):

If I know, what I know, then no one will watch over you
So someone shouldn’t really tell me what I want to know
I know, I owe, and I know that matters don’t matter as much
As you think they do 

You will only be yourself
When you can never be yourself 
And you will only be yourself
When you understand what you know 

How long, will we go on with a modern way of letting go, 
tell me how long will we go on with the modern way of letting you go? 

If I know, what I know, losing isn’t learning to be lost
It’s learning to know when you’re lost
If I know, what I know, 
I’ll want to make the most of what it seems like 

You will only be yourself
You can never be yourself
And you will only be yourself
When you understand what you know
