E -> D#
B -> A#
G -> F#
D -> C#
A -> G#
E -> D#


Verse 1:
       D               A
I'm a suspect, I'm a traitor,
    Bm            G         D
I'm only here in body visiting.
        D            A
Yellow faces in the distance screams,
      Bm            G
"The beauty is in what isn't said,"
     D
I'm rising to my feet.


Chorus:
           Bm        G               D
Because tonight the world turned in me.
               Bm    G              D
Because right now I don't dare to breathe.
             Bm  G        D
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive
                  A
And somewhere for us to find,
   Bm            G              D
Tonight, chase this light with me.


Verse 2:
    D           A
My just so, my last call,
Bm               G               D
My life is yours in your gifted hands.
          D              A
Confetti rainfall in a quiet street.
        Bm                    G
These things I've found are special now,
      D
The knot is in my reach.


Chorus:
           Bm        G               D
Because tonight the world turned in me.
               Bm    G              D
Because right now I don't dare to breathe.
             Bm  G        D
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive
                  A
And somewhere for us to find,
   Bm            G              D
Tonight, chase this light with me.


Bridge:
   Bm            G
A movie still, photograph,
   D                            A
Through a martyr's eyes I can see.
               Bm                                  G
I've seen the best of love, the best of hate, the best reward is earned,
                  D                         A  G
And I've paid for every single word I ever said.


Verse 3:
G         D                A
Confetti rainfall in the quiet street.
     Bm            G
The beauty is in what you make it,
    D
So get up on your feet.


Chorus:
           Bm        G               D
Because tonight the world turned in me.
               Bm    G              D
Because right now I don't dare to breathe.
             Bm  G        D
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive
                  A
And somewhere for us to find,
   Bm            G              D
Tonight, chase this light with me.
             Bm  G        D
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive
                  A
And somewhere for us to find,
   Bm            G              D
Tonight, chase this light with me.

Nice work!

A couple of things...

"Oh, babe, I know, it's a light"

Should be

"Oh, babe, I know, it's alive"

And the tuning is in Eb/D# standard, not Dropped D#.

Dropped D# would be:
e->F
B->C
G->G#
D->D#
A->A#
E->D#

ooooooooh right, it's just that I've never known how to name that tuning :P

I meant to say "halfstep down"... is that ok? hehe

thank you!

I suggest to do the following:

Put a capo on the first fret and play:

D = C
A = G
Bm = Am
G = F

It's best for persons like me who don't like to tune their acoustic guitars up and down all the time.
