Alright now I had a look at the other two versions tabbed for this song. I'm pretty
confident in saying that they were both CLOSE but unclear or wrong. So this, I'm
almost sure, is correct and sounds right with the song, however it is my
first tab so any comments are greatly appreciated.

Now the tuning is somewhat strange, and you will need a tuner, like 'Gundi'
mentioned. The way you do it is basically this:

[e] goes up a 'quarter-tone' to either a very sharp 'e' or a very flat 'f'.
[B] goes up a 'quarter-tone' to either a very sharp 'B' or a very flat 'C'.
[G] goes up a 'quarter-tone' to either a very sharp 'G' or a very flat 'A'.
[D] goes up a 'quarter-tone' to either a very sharp 'D' or a very flat 'E'.
[A] goes up a 'quarter-tone' to either a very sharp 'A' or a very flat 'B'.
[E] goes up a 'quarter-tone' to either a very sharp 'E' or a very flat 'F'.

It seemed a lot clearer in my head now that I've tried to explain it... :P
Hopefully you'll understand what I mean. For each string the needle on the tuner
needs to be right on one side.

Intro:

simply play the notes of each chord (sort of)!


        Em         G          D         A
e|------0----------3---------2----------0--------|
B|--------0----------3---------3----------2------|
G|------------------------------------------2----|
D|-------------------------0----------2----------|
A|----2----------2---------------0---------------|
E|--0----------3---------------------------------|


Well I could sleep forever;
But it's of her I dream.
If I could sleep forever;
I could forget about everything.

[drums] x 16 bars

if I could sleep forever.
if I could sleep forever, oh.
if I could sleep forever, oh, ohhh.


Also, someone tabbed this:

Guitar 2
Variations of:
e:--0---0-----3-2-3-2-0-|
B:----0---0-3-----------|
G:----------------------|
D:----------------------|
A:----------------------|
E:----------------------|

Such as:
e:--0-------3-2-3-2-0---|
B:----0-0-3-------------|
G:----------------------|
D:----------------------|
A:----------------------|
E:----------------------|

Well I say, yep that's as close as you'll get, it sounds fine,
and it's too hard to hear exactly what notes are being played.

Chords used:

        Em      G       D       A
e|------0-------3-------2-------0------|
B|------0-------3-------3-------2------|
G|------0-------0-------2-------2------|
D|------2-------0-------0-------2------|
A|------2-------2----------------------|
E|------0-------3----------------------|


There you go then, pretty easy, repetitive, depressing song. But it's a good one :D

Hey good tab, but sounds better like this. With the close 1-3 on the D string a hammer on. Regards.
