[riff 1] (x2)

[Verse 1]
E                        F#
Somebody told me about a worn out distraction 
A			    E
That I had let slip away
E			     F#
Then it comes back and rides my shoulders
A				  E
And burdens me every new day

[Bridge 1]
A					 F#
Well I'll just sit here like a slow burn out
A			           B		  
And try to figure out how to do without you

[Chorus](with distortion)
E5		   B5	     C#5	     B5	 A5
Who's going to straighten me up when I'm leaning
E5             B5	 C#5             B5      A5
Who's going to soothe my heart when it's burning
E5             B5     C#5    A5                   B5 
Who's going to be the one to tell me everything's alright
Well, Goodnight, Good Guy

[Play riff 1] (x2)

[Verse 2]
E                         F#
I'll break the bread of a new day and wonder
A                      E
If Faith will carry me along

[Guitar Fill 1]

E                         F#
But days are longer as my heart gets weaker and
A		       E
I can only stay so strong

[Bridge 2]
A					 F#
Well I'll just sit here like a wounded soul
A					B
Who's finding it difficult to just let go

[play chorus]

[Bridge 3] (with distortion)
I'm gonna let you sleep
Ab5				     B5
I'll let you fade off in the night
I pray the Lord to keep
Ab5				    B5
I pray the Lord to hold you tight
Well, goodnight.

Sorry guys, this is a great solo and I'd like to keep it that way.  I can
barely get down the
main parts of this solo, and anything that I transcribe wouldn't be worthy
of posting.  The
chords over the solo are from the Chorus.  Then the chorus is played twice.
The second
time, the lyrics are played around with a little and finally the song ends
with guitar riff 1
played twice.
