Your Eyes by Bombay Bicycle Club
Tabbed by Tomr221

Ok. So I have never tabbed anything before in my life but since (at least when I last
looked) there is no tab for this great song I thought I would give it a whirl. It's not
perfect but I'm hoping it's at least a decent effort. Feedback would be appreciated.

Verse
“Nod my head, so dumb with love…”
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------12-9-10-9--12-9-10-9--12-9-10-9--10-9-7--------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

“Shut my eyes, pretend it’s there…”
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------9---7----9---7----9---7----7-------------------------------|
D----------9---9----9---9----9---9----9-----------------------------|
G---------------------------------------9---------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat the above riffs once more.


Chorus
“Coming Back”
This part is just switching between the 9th and 7th fret on the B String.
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------9-7--------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

“You come out and say the word…”
This riff is played the first and third times:
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------9-7-----------------9-7------------------------------------|
D------------9-6---6-9---6-9-----9-6-/4-----------------------------|
G----------------9-----9--------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

On the second time it ends slightly differently:
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------9-7-----------------9-7---7--------------------------------|
D------------9-6---6-9---6-9-----9----------------------------------|
G----------------9-----9--------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

When played the fourth time, it stops abruptly about halfway through:
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------9-7--------------------------------------------------------|
D------------9-6---6-9----------------------------------------------|
G----------------9--------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

“Coming Back” (Heavier)
Really not too sure about these but I think it might be these power chords or something similar.
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------2-----4----------------------------------------------------|
G--------2-----4-----2----------------------------------------------|
A--------0-----2-----2----------------------------------------------|
E--------------------0----------------------------------------------|

The second time it's:
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------2-----4----------------------------------------------------|
G--------2-----4-----X2---------------------------------------------|
A--------0-----2----------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|


Outro (“Your Eyes”)
The outro begins immediately after the second "Coming Back". This is the bass line to 
the outro and it doesn't sound half bad if you play along with a guitar(you should be able 
to work out the rhythm yourself):
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--------2------5------0--------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

Alternatively, you could use these power chords:
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------4------7------2--------------------------------------------|
G--------4------7------2--------------------------------------------|
A--------2------5------0--------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

At some point during the “Your Eyes” outro part this comes in with a really weird effect:
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------7----------------------------------------------------------|
D----------6---6hold------------------------------------------------|
G------------9------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|


And that’s basically it. The structure of the song is:
Verse

Lyrics
Nod my head so dumb with love
there's something else I'm dreaming of
Shut my eyes pretend it's there
keep me here, unaware
I would promise all I could
think about it afterward
Humour me just think it through
it's all I ever asked of you

Coming back x4

You come out and say the word
quick how all the tables turned
Hate that there's a space to fill
always have and always will
I'm there when your fingers snap
it's not where we left it at
I can see the love we trapped, coming back

Along the barren streets we slide
poke at any dirt we find
Magnify for us to see
then dig them up desperately
I would promise all I could
think about it afterward
Humour me just think it through
it's all I ever asked of you

Coming back x4

You come out and say the word
quick how all the tables turned
Hate that there's a space to fill
always have and always will
I'm there when your fingers snap
it's not where we left it at
I can see the love we trapped, coming back x2

Your eyes x12

Great tab, I have one minor correction.

?You come out and say the word??
This riff is played the first and third times:

E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------9-7-----------------9-7------------------------------------|
D------------9-6---6-9---6-9-----9-6--------------------------------|
G----------------9-----9--------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|


should be

E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------9-7-----------------9-7------------------------------------|
D------------9-6---6-9---6-9-----9-6/4-------------------------------|
G----------------9-----9--------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|


slide down to the 4th fret as soon as you pick the 6th

Thanks for the feedback; your correction sounds right to me. I'll try amend the tab, if I can work out how.
