Hi! This is my first tab, I hope I did it well and I'am Spanish too, so please forgive
my spelling mistakes.
 I saw a video on youtube of a concert os this song and I think the cords are wright, I
had a doubt with the tune, I think they are one tone down (2 half step down or whatever)
but I did it with the normal tone EADGBE. And also say that I didn't know how to explain 
the bridge, It's kind of mutting? (I'm sure it is not the word but probably you
understood me If you know the song)
Here it goes. This group is reeaally good.
Althought the chords are fifths, Brian, as I could see in the video play it like a
normal chord, I mean, Down Up Down ... strokes.

  E5
Goodbye circus wheel
        D5
May you rest along the sea
      D5
I have given you the fire of my youth
        D5
And the triumph o're my enemies
  E5                                    D5
Goodbye fair weather home, and your faithless factories
           D5
I have given you the blood and the truth
           D5
from the wounds they laid onto me
      E5                D5                    D5
And whatever they left, well, I kept it for my own heart

Chorus:
    D5
And the lonesome all understand
           D5
With the choirs in my head
               E5
And we were orphans before
                            D5
We were ever the sons of regret

My baby

    D5
And on and on and on
     D5
the alphabet boys carry on

      E5
We were orphans before

                    D5                     D5
We were ever the sons of these songs                  Hey!

Verse2:
             E5
And now my lights, they never go down
                D5
they waltz the moon and stars for me now
            D5
So you can find some local libertine
                 D5
to take your daughters out on the town
            E5
And I can feel it in my aging bones
              D5
How the sound of the rain mixes up
             D5                           D5
into the fountains where I drank my hero's blood
                                                                                    E5
         D5            D5
So I left you to find my very own hat full of rain

Chorus

Now I'm trying to keep it straight               |  BRIDGE
Learning all the streets and the alleyways       |I dont know how to explain
And learning where they lead                     |In the video you can see it
Now that I'm left alone here to drive            |well
But it's so hard to stand on your own            |Mute your strings
Against mirror of glass, hard and cold           |
But the clothes I wore                           |
Just don't fit my soul anymore                   |
         E5
No the clothes I wore
       D5                 D5
Just don't fit my soul anymore

Chorus


         D5
When we were young
                 D5
We were diamond Sinatras
        E5                 D5
Like something I saw in a dream
       D5
We kept our secrets in rooms
          D5
locked up tight like a tomb
    E5                D5              D5
Where the ballerinas lay
