Chorus has this too:
A G
Until all that remains is the arms of the angels

Bridge:
Em A Em A
You've receded in to loam, and their picking at your bones
G D back to verse stuff (A)
We'll call home, we'll come home

Other than that, excellent tab.

This song is really hard to sing while playing. I'll get it. :P
