A --9--   --7--   --7--   --X--   --X--
E --7--   --5--   --0--   --6--   --4--


VERSE:


B:                            E:
The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful

B:                   F#5/A#    E5/Ab
Stop me and steal my breath

B:                      E:
Emeralds from mountains thrust toward the sky

B:                    F#5/A#   E5/Ab
Never revealing their depth

BRIDGE:


B:  F#5/A#  E5/Ab      F#5/A#
Tell me that we belong together

B:          F#5/A#   E5/Ab        F#5/A#
Dress it up with the trappings of love

B:           F#5/A#      E5/Ab     F#5/A#
I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips

B:                        F#5/A#                   E5/Ab  F#5/A#
Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

CHORUS:


B:      E:
I'll be your crying shoulder

B:           F#5/A#  E5/Ab
I'll be love suicide

B:          E:
and I'll be better when I'm older

B:          F#5/A#   E5/Ab     ("life" starts on the next set of chords)I'll be the 
fan of your life

(USE THE PICKING PATTERN FROM THE INTRO ON THESE CHORDS)

B: E: B: F#5/A#: E5/Ab


(VERSE AND BRIDGE ARE PLAYED THE SAME AS BEFORE)

Rain falls angry on the tin roof

As we lie awake in my bed

You're my survival, you're my living proof

My love is alive not dead

Tell me that we belong together

Dress it up with the trappings of love

I'll be captivated I'll hang from your lips

Instead of the gallows of heartache, that hang from above

(Repeat the chorus, play the B with the intro strumming pattern, then onto the next part)

(This is the only part that I'm not 100% the chords are exactly how they're originally 
but I know they're right)

CHORDS:

   Ab5     F#5      E      A
E -----   -----   -(0)-   -(0)-|
B -----   -----   -(0)-   -(0)-|
G -----   -----   --9--   -(6)-|
D --6--   --4--   --9--   --7--|
A --6--   --4--   --7--   --7--|
E --4--   --2--   --0--   --5--|

Ab5                               F#5                          E
I've been dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead

Ab5                  F#5                            E      A
Tuned in, turned on, Remembered the things that you said

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(The end of the song is just that riff at the end of the chorus played a few times)
