Here's an initial tab for Sunsets as played by Bernie acoustically on the DVD.
The tunning may not be 100% correct, but it sounds pretty close.

Darren plays the other part on a 12-string acoustic in standard tuning. 

low E down to D
G down to F#
B down to A
high E down to D

Verse 1:
Sunsets over the beaches from now on
Each day looking for new ways to go on 

Chorus 1:
Maybe I should drop by maybe I should have called
Maybe I should have followed you and beat down your door
Maybe it's gonna be breaking you every time you fall
But to shower you with pity will do you no good at all, no good at all

Verse 2:
Slow burn watching the world turn from my arms
New way of measuring each day until it's gone

Chorus 2:
Maybe I should drop by maybe I should have called
Maybe I should have followed you and beat down your door
Maybe it's gonna be breaking you every time you fall
But to shower you with pity will do you no good at all, no good at all

Verse 3:
Sunrise building a reprise in my heart
Regret tight around my chest plays its part - until it's gone 'till it's gone...

Solo: (play chorus)
But to shower you with pity will do you no good at all, no good at all

Outro:
Watching the sunset, sunset, sunset, sunset
Over the beaches, beaches, beaches, beaches
Watching the sunset, sunset, sunset, sunset
Over the beaches, beaches, beaches, beaches
Watching the sunset, sunset, sunset, sunset
Over the beaches, beaches, beaches, beaches
Watching the sunset, sunset, sunset, sunset
Over the beaches, beaches, beaches, beaches

hey mate be a bit more dicriptive with your tuning because an amatuer would look at that and say what does that mean?.
