Hi guys this is my first tab Ive seen them live a few times there just amazing so i have

E -4-------------4-4-------------|

Chorus

Here on the chorus guitar 1 loops and just keeps playin while guitar 2 stops at each bar 
pretty hard to explain but just listen to the tune and you will get it.

e -----------------------|
B -----5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
G -----6--6-6-6-6-6-6-6--|  x2

D -----4--4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
A -----4--4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
E -----2--2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|

Verse
Sometimes on the live shows Matthew plays about a bit wiv the lead parts.

Chorus

Bridge
Guitar 1
Bit tricky to pick this up cus of the tones of reverb and distortion.

e -------12------12------7-------7------12-----12------------7----|
B --/-12------/12--12\-7--------7-7/-12-----/12--12\-7-7b-----7b--|
G ----------------------------------------------------------------|
D ----------------------------------------------------------------|
A ----------------------------------------------------------------|
E ----------------------------------------------------------------|

e ---7------7/9---9/0--7-0-7b-------12-----7---7---7----|
B -7--7b/-------5-----7----------/12----/7----7-7---7b--|
G ------------------------------------------------------|
D ------------------------------------------------------|
A ------------------------------------------------------|
E ------------------------------------------------------|

All the time you still got guitar 2 playin the rythm loop.He plays wiv is a bit,mutes 
picks it slightly diffrently but anyway you get the point.

e ------------------------------|
B ------------------------------|
G ------------------------------|
D ------------------------------|
A ----2-2--2---------4--4-4-----|
E -0------------0-0-------------|

e ------------------------------|
B ------------------------------|
G ------------------------------|
D ------------------------------|
A ----2-2--2---------4--4-4-----|
E -4------------4-4-------------|

Then theres mainly instrumental parts which are just the same parts looped.

Guitar 1  4:57 - 5:20
e --1212-1212-1212-1212--77-77---------|
B ------------------------------77-77--|
G -------------------------------------|
D -------------------------------------|
A -------------------------------------|
E -------------------------------------|

e --1212-1212-1212-1212--77-77-------------/12----------------------12--|
B ------------------------------77-77/----------------------------------|
G ----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D ----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A ----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E ----------------------------------------------------------------------|

And thats bout it quite a nice tune to play not to difficult
but a perfect tune from the kings.:)
