Ok well this album has been one that I can return to whenever I want. And I saw the bass 
on here for this song and decided to take care of it from what was there. So thanks to 
guy. I'll put both the Capo and Non-Capoed versions down.

Verse;
C#m, B, A, A


C#m    B              A        A
Oh my God, this hurts like hell
C#m        B
I had that dream again where
A              A
I was lost for good in outer space
C#m        B                A
Tell me, doctor, how to shake
C#m       B                A
A waking nightmare that is only
           B
Worse when I am sleeping


A        E
Kill the messenger
B
I swear it's not me
C#m
It's just someone I used to know
A          E                         B
And get to church cause you're a good girl
         C#
And he never told you that
A         E
And all I need from you
B
Could be the thing that
C#
Leaves us both up here forever
A         B                  C#m
I'm gonna send a little rain your way
A         B                     C# (Hold)
I'm gonna send a little rain...

C#m         B            A        A
It's not so easy, caving in
C#m         B              A
I walked by your apartment twice today
A
While you were gone at work
C#m         B          A        A
And all the colors got so down (Soaked In?)
C#m         B
It's not as cold out here
A                   B
But come quickly, I am losing feeling

A        E
Kill the messenger
B
I swear it's not me
C#m
It's just someone I used to know
A          E                         B
And get to church cause you're a good girl
         C#
And he never told you that
A         E
And all I need from you
B
Could be the thing that
C#
Leaves us both up here forever
A         B                  C#m
I'm gonna send a little rain your way
A         B                  C#m
I'm gonna send a little rain, send a little rain
A         B
I'm gonna send a little rain...

E            A
To pour down on you
E                   A
Rain that makes the flowers bloom
E                 A
Rain to leave you all alone
C#
That keeps eyelashes falling
E
And wishes washed away
A        E
Kill the messenger
B
I swear it's not me
C#m
It's just someone I used to know
A          E                         B
And get to church cause you're a good girl
         C#
And he never told you that
A         E
And all I need from you
B
Could be the thing that
C#
Leaves us both up here forever
A         B                  C#m
I'm gonna send a little rain your way
A         B                  C#m
I'm gonna send a little rain...
A         B                  C#m
I'm gonna send a little rain your way

Ok that's it, i'm lazy just transpose it into the rest of the song like I did with the 
so that's it.

Isn't it lovely how simple songs become on guitar? You can play this acoustically too, 
how I do it. Capo sounds better with Piano though in my opinion.

Any thoughts or anything, just hit me a line on my UGSpace. Cheers.

For easier chords and no de-tuning, whack a capo on 3 and transpose this TAB up by 3. So you have C, G, Em, D for A, E, B, C#m respectively.
