[Intro]

G6sus4  Em (x3)
D/F#


[Verse 1]

G6sus4               Em
It was a close call
G6sus4                     Em
Sitting in the back of the room
                    G6sus4
With a bowl you had owned
Em              D/F#       C
But they didn't know

            Em
Closing  on my black eye
   C                  Em     C
Feel safe at times
           Em        C
Certain emblems
        Em           D/F#
Tell me it's time


[Chorus]

         C              Em      D/F#
Serpents in my mind
        C           Em       D/F#
Looking for your crimes
         C          Em       D/F#
Everything changes
         C         Em     D/F#
I don't want mine to this time


[Verse 2]

C         Em
You enjoy sucking on dreams
C                     Em
So I will fall asleep with someone other than you
C               Em                D/F#
I had a thought you would take me seriously
C               Em         D/F#
And listen on


[Chorus]

         C              Em      D/F#
Serpents in my mind
    C       Em    D/F#     C

I'm searching for your crimes
     Em               D/F#
Everything changes
   C
In time


[Verse 3]

            Em
You'll stay frozen in time
C
Collaging girls
Em                    C
Controlling minds
                Em
You hold the mirror well
D/F#    C             Em        D/F#
To everybody else


[Chorus]

         C              Em      D/F#
Serpents in my mind
          C    Em   D/F#  C
Trying to forgive your crimes
           Em   D/F# C
Everyone changes in time
       Em         D/F#  C       Em
I hope he changes this time


[Outro]

C       Em     C      Em     D/F#
C

I think that if you replace all the F# chords with D chords it fits better.

That's true, my tab was to mirror how Sharon plays it in the video linked. Nevertheless with D it sounds fine, I'll update to add that as an alternative since that other chord isn't 'friendly'

I just played your tab and checked the video footage. From what I hear and see, the F# should be a D7/F# and for the beginning she just plays the lower 3 strings of the C/G and E chords. The rest is fine.

D7/F#
E|--x--|
B|--3--|
G|--2--|
D|--x--|
A|--3--|
E|--2--|


Thank you for transcribing!
