+++This is an edit of my first tab of this song+++
The Editors – Papillon (acoustic)

Based on the song played live at MTV Home on German television


Note: His guitar is tuned down something like a half step, but it´s not
really necessary to make it sound quite alike. Listen to the song (should be
easily found on youtube) to get the feeling of the rhythm and picking
pattern.

*I´m not really sure about this one, but it fits well…

Now the two riffs on the lyrics:

Riff 1 (repeat each riff as often as needed)
Make our escape, you're my own papillon.
Will turns too fast, feel love before it's gone.
It kicks like a sleep twitch!
My papillon, feel love when it's shone.
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Riff2
Darling, just don't put down your guns yet.
if there really was a God here,
He'd have raised a hand by now.
Now darling, you're born, get old and die here.
Well, that's quite enough for me.
We'll find our own way home somehow.

Riff1
No sense of doubt or what you could achieve.
Well, I've found you out, I've seen the life you wish to leave,
But it kicks like a sleep twitch!
You will choke, choke on the air you try to breathe.
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Riff2
Darling, now just don't put down your guns yet.
If there really was a God here,
He'd have raised a hand by now.
Darling, well, you're born, get old and die here.
Well that's quite enough for me, dear.
We'll find our own home somehow.

Riff1
It kicks like a sleep twitch!
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

(He ends on an open Em)
