Ok, so i look on the **OLGA** and saw only lyrics for this song, and
I thought, "what a waste!".

Then i thought, "wait a minute, i'm bored enough to tab this song!",
and now here we are.

        never     lose that light in your eyes. (start figure 1 again)

======================
Hey you,
did you ever realize
what you had become?
And did you see
that it wasn't only me
you were running from?
----------------------
Did you know all the time
but it never bothered you anyway?
Leading the blind while I stared out the steel in your eyes
=======================
*Intermission with sound effects*
=======================
The rain fell slow
Down on all the roofs of uncertainty
I thought of you
And the years and all the sadness fell away from me.
------------------------
And did you know? (echo)
I never thought that you'd lose that light in your eyes.
========================


Thats pretty much the whole shabang, for those of you who are
way to lazy to d-tune your guitars, but want to impress you freinds with
this into anyway, you can play it by starting the same way up on
the 9th fret, 3rd smallest string, and it will sound good, but you
won't be able to play fig 1 and fig 2 without d-tuning.


If there's anything in this song i missed, i'll tab it all later,
but right now I gotta order some pizza.

c-ya, and don't be afraid to email.

Did you know...it was all going to go so wrong for you
And did you see that it was all going to be so right for me
Why did we tell you then
You were always the golden boy then
And that you'd never lose that light in your eyes

Hey you...did you ever realize what you'd become
And did you see that it wasn't only me that you were running from
Did you know all the time but it never bothered you anyway
Leading the blind while I stared out the steel in your eyes

The rain fell slow, down all the roofs of uncertainty
I thought of you and the years and all the sadness fell away from me
And did you know...

I never thought that you'd lose that light in your eyes

As weird as it may be, the song often times actually goes like this

Not always, and I can't figure out if there is a specific pattern to it...
