WARNING: This is the first song I ever tried to tab out.

{lead guitar:...Major Riff 1 continues, start chord progression...}

Bsus4 F#m7add11 Asus E
Bsus4 F#m7add11 Asus E

{lead guitar:...Riff 1 ends, chords continue...}

Verse 1:

Bsus4		    		      F#(barred)		Asus
The air is visible around you, rising up and off your lips in slow currents
		     E			   Bsus4
And i watch as your face is framed in its slow currents
	  F#(barred)
Drifting curls a trailing path
	Asus		E
A long drag becomes a dress of blue and ash

{lead guitar:...Major Riff 1 starts again...}

|----------8--11-----11------------|
|---9--11---------9----------------|

|----------------------------------|


Bsus4		  E				G#m
If it is born in flames then we should let it burn
	 E
Burn as brightly as we can
Bsus4		  E			G#m
And if its gotta end then let it end in flames
	E		Bsus4
Let it burn all the way down.

{lead guitar:...and then the quick 2nd riff...}

E|-----------------|
B|--------4h5p4----|
G|----4/6----------|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

{...after riff Gtr 2 continues...}

Bsus4		    		      F#		Asus
The air is visible around us, turning in it's simple steps on slow currents
		     E			   Bsus4    F#
And i watch as it pirouettes and spins in sloooooow mo-tion

And if this is ever meant to end, then i hope it ends where it began
Asus
So hot with love, we burned our hands
Bsus4				      Asus
If this is ever meant to end, then i hope it ends where it began
C#m		      E		F#m7add11 		<-This part is missing something
So hot with love, it burns our hands

{lead guitar:... keeps playing major riff 2 until "so hot with love" so that "it burns

That's the key of B Major, the tab it tabbed out in standard tuning, the key is just for further info like adding improvs in there. As i mentioned this is my first tab, i know i'm missing something, I am hoping that someone with a better musical ear can fill in those missing pieces until then this is the best I can do.
