Chords used:
Am: x 0 2 2 1 0
Em: 0 2 2 0 0 0
Dm: x 5 7 7 6 x
C:  x 3 5 5 5 x

There's two little riffs that go before the strumming of 
Am and Em in the verse so for our purposes i will refer
to this:

e|---3-2-1-0-----|
B|---0-0-0-1-----|
G|---------2-----|
D|---------2-----|
A|---------0-----|
E|---------------|
 ...as riff 1

 and this:

e|--0-0-0-0-0-0--|
B|--3/5-3-1-0-0--|
G|------------0--|
D|------------2--|
A|------------2--|
E|------------0--|
 ...as riff 2

The song starts where wasted time leaves off right after riff 2,
so it comes in on Em, then plays riff one into Am.
Listen to the song to get the timing and rhythm right.
I don't think the lyrics are totally right but that's not what
you're here for so hopefully you won't mind.


Riff 1
Am
And when you left this town
    Riff 2             Em   Riff 1
You had to change your name
Am
You had to change your face
   Riff 2        Em
To hide away the pain
           Dm       C        Em
But you'll run from heart to heart
          Dm         C           Em     Riff 1
Until you come right back to the start

Am
You said we weren't safe
    Riff 2             Em     Riff 1
And vanished without a trace
Am (strum chord once and let ring)
It's hard to chase a bird
         Riff 2         Em
When you don't have any wings
           Dm           C      Em
And you'll fly straight into a dawn
            Dm               C         Em
You'll come back once safely past your part

(the Em for the next part should be played as x79987)

(Strum each chord and let ring)
Dm              Em
You say you're alone
                          Dm
but my arms are open wide
                   Em
You're looking for something
                       Dm
That you won't ever find

Then this starts to play over the chords until Em at
"I'm beginning to think that it's better that way":
e|-----------------------------------------------------------12(x12)-15(x12)|
B|---------------------------------------------13(x12)-15(x12)--------------|
G|7(x12)-9(x12)-10(x12)-12(x12)-14(x12)-16(x12)-----------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(Start strumming the chords now, instead of letting ring)
Dm         
Now it's raining so hard
Em                       Dm
I can't see my own tears
                 Em
You're giving me reason
                        Dm
To put trust in my fears
                   Em
Now I'm chasing a ghost
                          Dm
Cause there ain't no real thing
               Em
There's only a carcass of
                             Dm
Where "I love you" should stay
                 Em
I'm beginning to think
                         Em (This Em: 022000)
That it's better that way

Solo:
e|--10-10-1010-7-7-77-10-10-1010-7-7-77-15-15-1515-12-12-1212-|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------|

e|--10-10-1010-12-12-1212-12----12----14----15----12----12---14----15----|
B|--------------------------13----13----13----13----13----13---13----13--|
G|----------------------------14----14----14----14----14----14---14----14|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

And I haven't figured out the rest of the solo so I usually
just go into riff 2 because that's what the other guitar is doing.

Riff 1
And one day you'll return
Riff 2
As open as a dove
Riff 1
And maybe then you'll ask
Riff 2
What happened to our love?
