Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
As with the a lot of Port of Morrow, I've worked this out in about 20 minutes just
playing and listening to the song. The rhythm is easy enough, and I've tried to line up the
chords as best I can with (what I believe to be) the lyrics. As always, works best 
listening to the song! These should all be played in barre chord form. The F#m should definitely
be played up at the 9th fret, sounds much better that way! I wasn't really sure about 
the instrumental break, with the sounds and bass over it.
Hope it all makes sense and helps you play - or at least attain a closer version 
of - this song! :D

UPDATE: Watching it live, there are a few changes. A Bm in the chorus, and it 
appears that James Mercer only plays Bm and E throughout the break. 

Intro
A  C#m x 4

A                   C#m
Is it all so very simple
     D           E
And horribly complex?
 Bm                 E
You suffer in a thimble
              A             D
And there's nothing coming next

      A                  C#m
Your mom smokes in the kitchen
      D               A
Her voice a cutting drone
Bm                    E
So creeping out, you pass the bar
        A              D
Your father's second home
             A       D - E
That leaves you on your own

A                  C#m
Nights I'd often watch you
D                  E
Float across the grounds
Bm           E
Out the gate to the motorway
      A                D
What secrets have you found?

A               C#m
You had to know I wanted
D                   A
Something from you then
Bm                  E
Too young to know just what it was
           A            D
Something more than a friend
         A      D - E
Is that you at the end


           F#m - E          Bm           D   (D - E)
Where you play     in the street at night
F#m - E          Bm     D  (D - E)
Blown like a broken kite
F#m - E                Bm          D (D - E)
My girl, you're giving up the fight
     A           C#m        G
Are you gonna let these Americans
             E
Put another dent in your life?


A  C#m x2


     A             C#m
My mother says your dirty
         D              E
They're gonna find you dead
Bm              E
But have you got that final chapter
A                D
Written in your head?

       A            C#m
Cause every single story
      D           A
Is a story about love
Bm             E
Both the over flowing cup
           A            D
And the painful lack thereof
              A      D - E
You got the heart of a dove


           F#m - E          Bm            D  (D - E)
But,  you play     in the street at night
F#m - E        Bm       D    (D - E)
Blown like a broken kite
F#m - E                Bm          D  (D - E)
My girl, you're giving up the fight
F#m         E                Bm        D     (D - E)
You'll have to lose all them childish notions
     A           C#m        G
If you're gonna let these American boys
             E
Put another dent in your life

Instrumental break
Bm E x4


           F#m - E             Bm           D  (D - E)
         you play     in the street at night
F#m - E        Bm       D  (D - E)
Blown like a broken kite
F#m - E                Bm          D  (D - E)
My girl, you're giving up the fight
F#m              E            Bm       D       (D - E)
You'll have to lose all them childish notions
     A           C#m        G
Or you're gonna let these Americans
             E
Put another dent in your life



A  C#m x 7
