*Lyrics*

I wander streets at night and hope to god to see your face
The fluorescent billboards sell a wonderful life that doesn't exist anymore
The conversation is
The conversation is over

What will I do if I'm wrong
Will I blame it on everyone
It's like I always do
So I'm a coward because of you

Are pills the only way to make myself complete again
They become the only way to a wonderful life with a happy ending
The conversation is
The conversation is over

What will I do if I'm wrong
Will I blame it on everyone
It's like I always do
I'm a coward because of you
I'm finding it hard to explain why I think that I'm right again
I'd love someone else to blame so I'm a coward because of you
And then you try to understand what it takes to be a man
And then you look into your hearts it defines you

What will I do if I'm wrong
Will I blame it on everyone
It's like I always do
I'm a coward because of you
I'm finding it hard to explain why I think that I'm right again
I'd love someone else to blame so I'm a coward because of you
And then you try to understand what it takes to be a man
And then you look into your hearts it defines you

The conversation is over
The conversation is over

It's completly wrong. Sorry to say. The actual tuning is FCGDFC (high to low) and the song is a bitch to work out so theres no shame in not having got it right but i would implore you not to post tabs that are so very wrong for everyones sake. Thanks

well to be fair in the wrong tuning or not it sounds fairly accurate, are you sure about the tuning?

I'm certain. While struggling to get it sounding like it does on the record, I found from a Making Of for Puzzle that the tuning is this weird obtuse thing listed above which follows very little conventional guitar logic, rendering most chord shapes and things completely unusable. The producer apparently got very frustrated with this song when they were "workshopping" it, saying something like "why can't you use a tuning where you can play ANYTHING normal!". Anyway, what the tuning is was still a mystery until I found a live recording from an acoustic show where he's tuning up a guitar for this very song and you get to hear every note. Knowing that I set about making an accurate tab. It's VER3 on this site.
