Note: this is all played on Piano as per the original song. Tabbed it from the 
youtube live videos, so with the poor audio quality I can't promise it's 100% correct!

With each chord, additionally use your left hand to play the root note two octaves 
down- this makes the piano sound really deep.


Fm                   Cm Eb
    When I'm falling down

Fm                   Cm   Eb
    will you pick me up again

Fm                   Cm Eb
    when I'm too far gone

Fm                          Cm Eb
    Dead in the eyes of my friends

Pre-chorus (played staccato)

Fm Fm                           Fm Fm
      Will you, take me out of here

                           Fm Fm
when I'm staring down the barrel

                          Fm Fm
When I'm blinded by the lights

                        Fm Fm
when I cannot see your face

                    Fm Fm
Take me out of here (x4)


Fm, Fm (root C), Bbmin9 (or instead of Bbmin9 try playing just 3 keys: Bb-F-Ab)
C#, Fm (root C), Bbmin9


C#      Eb              Fm 
   Just stay where you are

    Eb    Eb
Let your fears subside

If there's nothing to hide

Most of it sounds right, just wasn't sure about 'Pre-Verse'?

And there's no Chorus so thats why it's only 4 stars, but a great job nonetheless.

Hey, cheers man

With regards to the pre-verse, it's the little bit of piano before it drops into 'Just stay where you are'.

First play a normal Fm, followed by Fm again but with the C played an octave down (so for piano, use your thumb to play the C instead of your 3rd finger). Then for the 'Bbmin9' just move your thumb down again (from the C) to a Bb, same with your left hand. Then continue as per the tab, with a C# first instead, followed by a Fm (root C) and Bbmin9. It sounds right like this but I couldn't really explain all that on the tab! Hope this helps...
