"How To Be Dead"
set tempo
Song: How To Be Dead
Artist: Snow Patrol
Album: Final Straw

Note: The F chord should be played open, not as a barre or power chord. This is
because in F (II) you lift your finger of the A string for the right sound as you
can see below!!
  F        F     Bb        G 
E-1-      E-1-      E-1-      E-3-
B-1-      B-1-      B-3-      B-3-
G-2-      G-2-      G-3-      G-4-  
D-3-      D-3-      D-3-      D-5- 
A-3-      A---      A---      A-5- 
E---      E---      E-1-      E-3-

F                           F
Please don't go crazy if I tell you the truth
        Bb                               G
No you don't know what happened and you never will if
F                           F           
You don't listen to me while I talk to the wall
       Bb                         G
This blanket is freezing its been out in the hall
           F                        F
Where you fed me for hours till I'm sure what I want
            Bb                            G 
But darling I want the same thing that I wanted before
               F                        F 
So sweetheart tell me what's up I won't stop no way.

Please keep your hands down and stop raising your voice
It's hardly what I'd be doing if you gave me a choice
It's a simple suggestion can you give me some time
So just say yes or no why cant you shoulder the blame
Cos both my shoulders are heavy from the weight of us both
You're a big boy now so lets not talk about growth
You've not heard a single word I have said, oh my god.

Please take it easy it can all be my fault
I haven't made half the mistakes that you've listed so far
Baby let me explain something its all down to drugs
At least I remember taking and ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 
It seems I've stepped over lines you've drawn again and again
But if the ecstasy in the wait is definitely out
Dr Jekyll is rustled and Hyde from my pride

Short and Sweet!! Your Welcome!!

"At least I remember taking them and not a lot else" I believe it is. Very nice mate I will start playing this now as well as Run! :-)

Oh and also I think it's "Dr Jekyl is wresting Hyde for my pride." Not sure about name spellings.
