Here's one from "Fear of Music"  Corrections and comments are definitely


D                 Em                 A
Everyone is trying to get to the bar
                 G                      D
The name of the bar, the bar is called heaven
                           Em             A
The band in heaven plays my favorite song
                        G                        D
They play it once again, they play it all night long

Bm            Am         C            G
Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens
Bm            Am         C            G
Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens


There is a party, everyone is there
Everyone will leave at exactly the same time
It's hard to imagine that nothing at all
Could be so exciting, could be so much fun

Repeat Chorus:


When this kiss is over it will start again
It will not be any different, it will be exactly the same
It's hard to imagine that nothing at all
could be so exciting, could be so much fun

Repeat Chorus:

Chords are right, but the lyrics are wrong and following the tab is difficult.

Lyrics are fine for the Fear Of Music version.

Two comments: For effect, Byrne sometimes adds a suspended fourth on the D and a minor seventh on the Em in the verse. This would be difficult to tab accurately, so listen to the recording (especially the live one, where the effect is very clear) to get an idea of what to do.

Also, regarding the chorus: Adding an Abm chord between the Bm and Am and a D between the C and G sounds very nice, but is not totally essential. Again, listen to the recording for ideas.

For the verse I'm pretty sure the A is Am. Makes more sense chord progression wise:


Otherwise geat stuff.
