tabbed from album version
and the Mahogany Session video

I've finally added the missing lyrics in the last verse, thanks to patrickjeanson0. 
Chords are now relative to capo; it's probably easier that way.
The real chord names are kept in brackets for quick reference.
Use the 'transpose' button if for some reason you want the real chords within lyrics.

Emadd9     A9     C7     B7

[Verse 1]
    Emadd9                   A9
You will not give in says the soul to the skin

     C7                      B7
Now give me those animal thoughts you've been hiding.

  Emadd9                A9
Rise from the bed take the heart from the head

     C7                   B7
And ask if she really is broke.

You'll find she doesn't speak,

She was never broken;

C7                     B7
Always asleep, oh, and you thought he'd woken you.

Emadd9     A9     C7     B7

[Verse 2]
Don't cheat says the soul

It's just meat on his bones

It smells sweet bet your conscience

Will eat at your inners

    Emadd9 A9      C7
I'm calling from my cage

B7       Aadd9       G6    F#7  Em      Am   Emaj7sus4
You'll regret that you locked me away.

Em     Am     Emaj7sus4

[Verse 3]
Good day says the sun

The morning has come

       C7                          B7
Hide away, without moonlight you're pale and undone

You must listen to me,

This is what you are

         C7                        B7
It's not you that he'll see if you hold me afar.

    Emadd9  A9    C7
You know my dearest friend

B7       Aadd9      G6   F#7   Em      Am   Emaj7sus4
You'll be sorry when all of this ends.

Em      Am   Emaj7sus4

[Bridge 1]
I had told you

                Am  Emaj7sus4
Hold tight to my hands

        Em            Am
I speak truth why did you not

Emaj7sus4   Em
Hold your ground?

You let go to run with his soul

And now that he let go

               Em    Em7/G    A9    C7 B7
You're falling down

Emadd9    Emadd9/G    A9    C7 B7  (2x)


[Bridge 2]
      Em                        Em11/A
If I have been hiding while you've been deciding

   A                      Dm
To throw all I have for you on the floor

          Em                Em11/A
I've been calling, calling, calling your name

And now that you've fallen

I'm hoping again

That you'll listen to me

                 Emadd9   A9    C7    B7
You'll listen to me.

   Emadd9  A9     C7   B7   A7   G7   B/F#
You will not give in.

I'm a little confused here, sometimes the chords listed above the lyrics correlate with the ones listed above and sometime they don't, or they do except for a different letter. Am I missing something, or are these just typos?
