NOTE: This version does not require a capo.
Tabbed by: Chris Drinkwater
Email: myoidenramre@gmail.com

Note2: Where I've placed the chord in the lyrics, the chord starts on the word following it. 
For example: In the first line, the C# chord starts on the word "fire".


     G#     D#      C#       Fm      

e|---4------6-------4--------8---------------------------------|
B|---4------6-------4--------9---------------------------------|
G|---5------8-------6--------10--------------------------------|
D|---6------8-------6--------10--------------------------------|
A|---6------6-------4--------8---------------------------------|
E|---4---------------------------------------------------------|


[Intro]

G#, D#, C# - C#
G#, D#, C# - [C#] And you said


[ G#, D# ] It was like [C#] fire around the brim
[ G#, D# ] Burning [C#] solid, burning thin the burning rim
[ G#, D# ] Like [C#] stars burning holes right through the dark
[ G#, D# ] Flicking [C#] fire like saltwater into my eyes
[ G#, D# ] You were [C#] one inch from the edge of this bed
[ G#, D# ] I drag you [C#] back a sleepy-
                       
[Fm] heeaaaaaaaaaa-- [D#] --eaaaaaaa-- [C#] --eaaaaaaaad sleepy-
[Fm] heeaaaaaaaaaa-- [D#] --eaaaaaaa-- [C#] --eaaaaaaaad

[[ If you want to play the synth riff ]]

e|----4---------------------------|
B|-------6--4---------------------|
G|-------------3--3h5p3--1--------|
D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|


[[ And repeat the pattern for second verse and chorus ]]

They couldn't think of something to say the day you burst
With all their lions and all their might and all their thirst
They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin
Against the walls against your rules against your skin
My beard grew down to the floor and out through the doors
Of your eyes but go in disguise like a sleepyhead, sleepyhead

[[ If you want to end with the chorus, play as normal except 
substitute the C# for a G#, play the G# once only and let it ring ]]

[Fm] heeaaaaaaaaaa-- [D#] --eaaaaaaa-- [G#] --eaaaaaaaad

Thank you for kind comments. I wrote this tab a while ago and back then I wasn't playing major barre chords with the root on the fifth string correctly. Updated chords:

G# D# C# Fm

e|---4------6-------4--------8---------------------------------|
B|---4------8-------6--------9---------------------------------|
G|---5------8-------6--------10--------------------------------|
D|---6------8-------6--------10--------------------------------|
A|---6------6-------4--------8---------------------------------|
E|---4---------------------------------------------------------|
