There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This song is originally done by U2. Flyleaf did a slower cover of it, and I think it 
out awesome. The chords to this song are hear, and
if you strum them out, you'll get the tabs, just gotta work through some kinks.

Capo on the 1st fret.

G                      A
Green light, seven eleven
C                           G
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
G                                A
You don’t smoke, don’t even want to
C                        G
Hey now, check your change
G                        A
Dressed up like a car crash
C                                         G
The wheels are turning but you’re upside down

C                                     G
You say when he hits you, you don’t mind
C                                     G
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
A                     C            G
Hey now, Is that what it is?

[Repeat the first verse here.
Red lights, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who’s around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip sync with the talk show hosts

C                           G
And if you look, you look through me
C                           G
And if you talk it’s not to me
C                                       A (?)
And when I touch you, you don’t feel a thing

              C                                  G
If I could stay.. then the night would give you up
C                                  G
Stay, and the day would keep it’s trust
C                                G
Stay, and the night would be enough

[Repeat the first verse here.]
Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio waves
With satellite television
You can go anywhere.
Miami, New Orleans,
London, Belfast and Berlin

[You play this the same as the part: "And if you look, you look through me.."]
And if you listen I can’t call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout I’ll only hear you

            C                                    G
If I could stay.. then the night would give you up
C                                    G
Stay then the day would keep it’s trust
Stay with the demons you drown
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough

G                 A
Oooooh oh oh ohhhh...
C                  G
Oooooh oh oh ohhhh... [x2]

[Played the same as the first verse.]
Three o’clock in the morning
It’s quiet and there’s no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to the ground

Seems pretty good for the most part, although I think there are some D's somewhere in there, like at the end of "because when he hurts you, you feel alive".

Also, I don't think there's a "hey now" in there :P

Sounds good to me, except for the C at the begining of the chorus. But otherwhise it's excellent!

Yes it great. The question mark is a 'D' chord. At least it sounds good to me. :P thanks!
