I can't believe that no-one has tabbed this song so far! But here are the chords

The verses are basically E and G#m  (with a little brush of F# just before changing
between the two (you can here it on the song) but I would say that if you are a novice then
just ignore the F#s in the verses (apart from the last one (which leads in to the chorus)

I spend ages lining up the chord names over the right lyrics - but in pasting it in to
this online submission for it sometimes messes about with that a bit - so apologies if
they appear a tiny bit off line - but I've tried!

Anyway - this is of Stay What You Are (in my opinion the only genuinely perfect thing in
this word). Peace, Ben


Verse
              E                     G#m
And I will flail under these lights,
      E                                             G#m
that seep down from the bitter sky tonight
        F#      E                  F#  G#m
and I will kick and beat my wrists together
             F# E                                 F# G#m                   F#
and feel an ocean breathing waves,   feel them licking at my face.
E                                 F# G#m
Ceilings don't exist and there are no floors beneath me.
F#         E                                   G#m           F#
If I were king of this night, would you become my queen?


Chorus
E         B            F#       G#m     F#       E
  And I hope, your majesty that you like your position.
        B             F#     G#m     F#       E
I'll do everything I can to keep you by my side
           B                  F#           G#m     F#     E
and I'll stare off through the darkness to find us a kingdom.
       B              F#
Just kiss me before I go


Verse
E                F# G#m                   F# E
  I'll have to walk a thousand miles
      F# G#m                             F#  E
just to find the ground deserving of your feet.
                           F# G#m          F#  E
You could throw me down and walk on me
             G#m                      F#
and I'd just look on through my love and through the haze.



Chorus
E         B            F#       G#m     F#       E
  And I hope, your majesty that you like your position.
        B             F#     G#m     F#       E
I'll do everything I can to keep you by my side
           B                  F#           G#m     F#     E
and I'll stare off through the darkness to find us a kingdom.
       B              F#
Just kiss me before I go


Bridge
E              G#m                  E
 The nightingales are singing now
        G#m      F#     E               G#m                 E
They're calling out our marriage to our subjects on their knees
            G#m     F#                      E
Their jewellery is thrown into the air
                             G#m                            E
They sigh at their release as their shackles hit the ground
                      G#m                 F#
The trumpets call out now, we're home at last


Chorus
E         B            F#       G#m     F#       E
  And I hope, your majesty that you like your position.
        B             F#     G#m     F#       E
I'll do everything I can to keep you by my side
           B                  F#           G#m     F#     E
and I'll stare off through the darkness to find us a kingdom.
       B              F#
Just kiss me before I go
