Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
So I made this because I thought the first version on here was kinda off.
This works quite well without the capo, but if you want to play along the original record you'll need one
on the 8th fret. Have fun!

[Verse 1]
        Am                   D
Maybe I listen more than you think
      Em                 D
I can tell that somebody sold you
              Am               D
We said we’ve never let anyone in
             Em          D
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets

[Chorus]
C          D                G
The system only dreams in total darkness
            Am
Why are you hiding from me?
C          D                 G
We’re in a different kind of thing now
                 Am
All night you’re talking to God

[Verse 2]
               Am                  D
I thought that this would all work out after a while
           Em                         D
Now you’re saying that I’m asking for too much attention
        Am                    D
Also no other faith is light enough for this place
   Em                    D
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets

[Chorus]
C          D                G
The system only dreams in total darkness
            Am
Why are you hiding from me?
C          D                 G
We’re in a different kind of thing now
                 Am
All night you’re talking to God

[Bridge]
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way

[Chorus]
C          D                G
The system only dreams in total darkness
            Am
Why are you hiding from me?
C          D                 G
We’re in a different kind of thing now
                 Am
All night you’re talking to God

[Outro]
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way

I would say capo 1st fret, (transpose tool to +7)

VERSE: Em, A, Bm, A
CHORUS + BRIDGE + Outro: G, A, D, Em

Though I don't really like that Em at the end of the outro/bridge. Anyone got a suggestion for a replacement?

jakedoran Try Em, A, D, G and also try G, A, D, G both sound solid to me
