Okay guys. This is the CORRECT version of this song.Trust me, I 
looked at MANY live clips of Daniel Johns playing, and listened 
to the song a lot, so this is  about 99.9% correct. I was just 
going to post the live solo, but decided to post the whole song 
because I wanted to post a near perfect version. The live solo 
is at the end of the file (I know he plays this solo in the 
version of the song on the DVD "Live from Faraway Stables", 
maybe at other shows too).

Okay here is the coolest part.... the solo that Daniel plays live in 
Newcastle on the DVD "Live from Faraway Stables".




He plays this part a few times before the solo starts.

You will have to listen to it for exact timing. The solo might be a 
tiny bit off in some places, but its right for the most part. 
Have fun.
