Starlight acoustic tab  / song by Muse / tab by Arcelle

Okay, fingerstyle tab based off of the keyboard part. See any other tab of this 
for basic chords, and feel free to substitute them for the silly jazz chords in 
the bridge if need be. :V The strumming style in the verse/chorus is a bit hard to 
tab, but just feel it out and you'll get it. Also this is in Eb tuning, but it 
sounds fine in standard. Chords are named as the shapes would be in standard tuning.

(pause)

Chorus

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

Verse 4

Far away
The ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

Bridge

And I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Refrain

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Chorus

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms
                 C* (strum once)
I just wanted to hold
