"light fingers threw the dart
"shattered the lamp and into darkness cast us out"

"Oh you've got it the wrong way round

==========Bridge===========

Guitar 1 - Downstrokes 
Pete is on Beat 1 throughout this section

 E                E
"If you wanna try
"If you wanna try
 Cm
"What's the worst you can do? uh-o-oh
"I know you're right
"I know you're right
"Im still in love with you

Guitar 2 - Upstrokes 
Carl starts on Beat 1, then plays on the off-beat

 E                  E
"If you wanna try
        E          Cm
"If you wanna try
            Cm            Cm
"What's the worst you can do? uh-o-oh
"I know you're right
"I know you're right
"Im still in love with you"

This part is very tricky so i have set out the metre for Carl.
