Pre-Chorus (x2)

For the next bit i've shown both the guitar and bass line on the same staff
just to try and give the feel of the whole song but obviously you won't be
able to play them both. 

I've got this energy beneath my feet...								 |Last time

Great tab, just one part I think should change...

In the chorus it should be:

(Why do you... ...on your mind)
|--3-3-3----1-1-1----3-3-3--5-5-5-|-1-1-1--|
|--3-3-3----3-3-3----4-4-4--6-6-6-|-3-3-3--|
|--3-3-3----2-2-2----3-3-3--5-5-5-|-3-3-3--|
|--5-5-5----0-0-0-----------------|--------|
|--5-5-5--------------------------|--------|
|---------------------------------|--------|

(And I'm sick of... ...they'll find)
|--3-3-3----1-1-1----3-3-3--5-5-5-|-2-2-2--|
|--3-3-3----3-3-3----4-4-4--6-6-6-|-3-3-3--|
|--3-3-3----2-2-2----3-3-3--5-5-5-|-2-2-2--|
|--5-5-5----0-0-0-----------------|-0-0-0--|
|--5-5-5--------------------------|--------|
|---------------------------------|--------|

Just a slight variation in the chorus

5 stars though =)
