Artist: INXS
Song Name: Afterglow
Album: Switch (2005)
Tabbed in march 2006

Standard tuning

This is a great song to listen to -- even more fun to
play on the guitar. I learned most of the chords from 
the INXS fanclub Podcast where JD sings it accompanied 
with only an acoustic guitar, so I'm sure this is 99% 
correct (it's much harder to tab from the album version 
where the guitar is hidden behind the strings). 

It's in the key of F# I believe. But whenever I see so 
many sharpened chords, I suspect a capo was used. 
If all the sharpened barre chords make your hand sore, 
place a capo on the first fret, and lower each chord a 
semi-tone, so C# become the easy-to-form C chord, F# 
becomes F, A# becomes A, etc. That way you still 
can play along with the album in key without the 
trouble of the barre chords.

C#         F#                                
Here I am, lost in the light of the moon 

                      C#
that comes through my window

                    F#                                            
Bathed in blue, the walls of my memory divides 

                    C#      B                 F#
the thorns from the roses  It's you and the roses

A# G# A# F#

C#           B            F#              C#
Touch me and I will follow  in your afterglow

             B               F#          C#
Heal me from all this sorrow    As I let you go 

       B                  F#
I will find my way when I see your eyes

        C#     G#              A#    F#   C#
Now I'm living in your afterglow

C#         F#                          
Here I am, lost in the ashes of time, 

                 C#
but who owns tomorrow?

C#               F#
In between the longing to hold you again

                   C#     B                F#
I'm caught in your shadow,  I'm losing control

A#      G#          A#       F#
My mind drifts away, we only have today

C#           B             F#               C#
Touch me and I will follow    in your afterglow

C#           B               F#
Heal me from all this sorrow

         C#            B
As I let you go I will find my way

       F#                  B                 F#
I will sacrifice 'til that blinding day when I see your eyes

        C#             G#       A#        F#
Now I'm LIVINNNNG!!!!! in your afterglowwwwwwwwww!!!

         D#             A#       D#         A#              G#
When the veils are gone     as I let you go,   as I let you go

[yodelling chords: C# G# F# C# repeated twice]

C#             B            F#              C#
Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow

             B               F#         C#
Heal me from all this sorrow     As I let you go 

       B                   F#
I will find my way, I will sacrifice

         C#   G#             A#      F#
Now I'm living in your afterglow

C#                  F#
Bathed in blue, the walls of my memory divides 

                    C#
the thorns from the roses

B                 F#
  It's you who is closest

Thanks for the tab.It sounds really close to the acoustic performance of "Afterglow".

the only thing i can hear is that the A# (or A if you're using a capo) should be a minor chord. it just doesnt sound right as a major chord. other than that pretty good job. i sung this and played at my schools awards night, and i think i did a pretty good job of it :)
