Tiny Little Fractures
by Snow Patrol (off the album Final Straw, 2004)

I'm gonna try and get the whole song tabbed. The chord structure differs slightly at the 
and chorus, and there's a couple of guitar parts which come in at different points. 
here it is! I figured it's played mainly on power chords.

_____________________________________________________________________________
INTRO [0:00]
_____________________________________________________________________________

One guitar at this point plays a harmonic which rings for a while, I think it's this 
play it just above the 3rd fret:

e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|--------|
A|-<3.0>--|
E|--------|


Guitar two[0:03]

e|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------7---7---7-7-7-7---|
D|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---7---7---7-7-7-7---|
A|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---5---5---5-5-5-5---|
E|-5---5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------------------|

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|----------------|
D|-5-5---5-7-7-5--|   x4
A|-5-5-0-5-7-7-5--|
E|-3-3-0-3-5-5-3--|


Guitar one[0:16] after the second Guitar playing

e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|-<3.2>--|
A|--------|
E|--------|
It then backs up Guitar two, either with an open A (002220) or with this chord. Note 
a strange strumming pattern, listen to the song to work it out ;).
e|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|-6-------5-5---5h6p5----|
D|-7-----------7-------7--|
A|-7----------------------|
E|-5----------------------|
           *Quietly, first time only

_____________________________________________________________________________
VERSE [0:30]
_____________________________________________________________________________

I'm not sure but looking at the videos I think both guitars play this. It's a similar 
pattern as guitar two on the intro:

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---------------|
D|-7------4---5--|   x4
A|-7------4---5--|
E|-5------2---3--|

_____________________________________________________________________________
CHORUS [0:58]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Guitar two:

e|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------7---7---7-7-7-7---|
D|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---7---7---7-7-7-7---|
A|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---5---5---5-5-5-5---|
E|-5---5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------------------|

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|----------------|
D|-5-5---5-7-7-5--|   x4
A|-5-5-0-5-7-7-5--|
E|-3-3-0-3-5-5-3--|

Guitar one:

e|--------|
B|--------|
G|-6------|
D|-7------|
A|-7------|
E|-5------|
Played as in the intro, or the open A (002220).
_____________________________________________________________________________
VERSE [1:25]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Same as verse 1.

_____________________________________________________________________________
CHORUS [1:53]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Both guitars play the same as in the first chorus, but an extra guitar (dubbed) TREMELO 
(meaning really really constantly fast picking) the following notes:

e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|-12-----11-----5----\-|
D|----------------------|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|
_____________________________________________________________________________
OUTRO [2:20]
_____________________________________________________________________________

All guitars go quiet, but guitar one plays this harmonic which goes into feedback:
e|--------|
B|-<15>---|
G|--------|
D|--------| (or equivalent)
A|--------|
E|--------|

LYRICS:

(Aaaaaaaaaaaaah) (x3)

Verse:
Is there a place I can go
Is there a light to get me there
If I've forgotten what to say
It's because all words are dust
If this is really what you think
How come you won't look me in the eye
All this crying in your sleep
As I lie awake beside

Chorus:
Woah woah woah yeah (x4)

Verse:
Is there a T-shirt I can wear
Coz I am soaking look at me
What do you mean I don't love you
I am standing here, aren't I
Maybe you thought of it first
Maybe I get all the praise
Is there a place I can go
Is there a light to get me there.

Chorus:
Woah woah woah yeah (x4)
