This song has a recurring riff that breaks the vocals.  Here it is (I 
don't know if it's exactly correct, but it sounds pretty damn close):
(each character is the same length if you're reading in notepad or 
browser)

                                 (these are hammer-ons)

And now the song (this IS how it sounds):

Intro: riff

Verse:
Fmaj7
Smells in the air,
F9                          Fmaj7                            F9
See there it's crashing the final impression that stains the paper
          Dm
Where the words felt like water,
   Am7                       Dm
Unearth all the changes that never did matter,
  Em7                     riff (w/ same chords but quiet in background)
I think it's beginning to freeze here

after riff:
Fmaj7                      F9
Caught in the rage and the fire of things,
        Fmaj7                         F9
All the brightness that burns me, I'm fumbling through like a
Dm                           Am7
Child in the dark, when the nakedness   comes,
       Dm                         Am7
I am shocked by the colour, the glorious weight of your

Chorus (first word of chorus is the end of the previous sentance):
Dm
Skin
        F
Comes alive
       C                  C               Dm
And I never thought we'd make it back so soon
          F
Might be nice
        C                 C
But I knew you'd be your own destroyer
Dm           F
    Comes a time
       G                   D                 riff with chords
When I always thought I'd make it up to... you

Verse 2: (after end of riff)
Fmaj7
Here please forgive me,
      F9                     Fmaj7                 F9
how could we escape all the bitterness piled upon bitterness?
(pickup)     Dm                        Am7
Held in the face of the things that I don't understand
      Dm          Am7                  Fmaj7
Intellectualize,  over and over this helplessness suits us,
      F9                    Fmaj7                    F9
It's funny how quiet has slipped to our corners and worn all our edges
  Dm                     Am7
Away you are watching, breathing and baiting,
Dm                       Am7
Wanting and warming and cautiously waiting
      Fmaj7                  F9
For some simple signal, to creep 'cross our conscience,
   Fmaj7               F9
Uncover redemption and oh did I mention I
Dm                       Am7
Carried you down, to the St. Lawrence River,
     Dm                       Am7                    Fmaj7         F9
The banks running dirty, the water is beginning to freeze here,
          Fmaj7     F9
Solid by morning,
            Dm          Am7
And I'll freeze here,
              Dm      Am7
Be winter by mornaaaayaayaaiang

Chorus 2:
Dm              F
        Comes alive
       C                   C              Dm
And I never thought you'd get me back so soon
          F
Might be nice
         C       C
But it's only my own destroyer
Dm           F
    Comes a time
       G                D                 riff with chords
When I always knew I'd make it up to... you

Verse 3, more quiet: (After riff)
Fmaj7                       F9
I saw on your face, such a curious   grin,
      Fmaj7                  F9
As I let go your hand I was desparate to hold you
  Dm                            Am7
Again, but you're sinking, too deep in the water,
     Dm                   Am7
Outsmarted myself, and so easily gave up what I

(insert riff here)
Fmaj7      F9
Wanted,
          Fmaj7      F9
Solid by morning,
        Dm       Am7
What I wanted,
              Dm      Am7
Be winter by mornaaaayaayaaiang

Chorus 3:
Dm           F
     Comes alive
       C                   C             Dm
And I never thought you'd make it up so soon
          F
Might be nice
      C                   C
But I always knew you're my destroyer
Dm           F
    Comes a time
       G                   D                 riff with chords
When I always thought I'd make it up to... you


Outro (after riff):
Fmaj7   F9             Fmaj7      F9
             Solid by morning
           Dm              Am7
And I'll freeze here...                                let ring
              Em            riff 2-> E|0--0--0--0--0-----------|
