----------------------------------------------
She debuted this one at her Coachella pre-show and the festival itself. Makes me super pumped for the album.
Most sources say this is called "Sober (Interlude)" but it could potentially be the 
title track as well. Lyrics are pretty accurate with the only discrepencies really being if
she sayd "whoah" or "oh". I hope we're mature enough to not have this be a real issue. 

The main progression (Intro, Verse 2 & Outro) is basic with the first three chords being held 
for one bar and then C#m and F# being held for only two beats each. 
The Verse 1 and Chrous progressions are one bar each chord.

I'm playing in half-step down as I can use the basic "C" fingiering postions in that tuning.
I've added the fingerings for that below if you want to give it a try. If it's easier to follow, transpose up
one and the chords will read as if you were in standard tuning and playing C fingering. This might be easier 
if you're on auto scroll and playing along and haven't done much in other timings. 

To use a capo in standard tuning, tranpose down four and chuck the capo on fourth fret. 
You'll be playing the eacy, "G" fingering postions then. For the record, I tab in the orignal key of songs so 
bass players, singers and pianists can also access this easily and it serves as a good starting point for
everyone too. The side buttons exist for a reason. Put the transpose button to work I say!

[Intro] 
G#m     B    E   C#m  F#
G#m     B    E   C#m  F#

[Verse 1]

G#m
You asked if I was feeling it
    B
I'm psycho high
F#                             E
Know you won't remember in the morning when I speak my mind
G#m        
Lights are on, and they've gone home
B
But who am I?
F#
Oh how fast the evening passes
E
Cleaning up the champagne glasses

N.C

[Chorus]

G#m                          B
   We told you this was melodrama
F#     
Oh how fast the evening passes
E
Cleaning up the champagne glasses
G#m                      B
   Our only wish was melodrama
F#     
Oh how fast the evening passes
E
Cleaning up the champagne glasses

G#m     B    E   C#m  F#

[Verse 2]

        G#m
And the terror, and the horror
        B
When we wonder why we bother
E     C#m F#
Woah, oh, woah
        G#m
And the terror, and the horror
      B
Gotta wonder why we bother
E     C#m F#
Woah, oh!
        G#m
All the glamour, and the trauma
        B
And the fucking melodrama 

E     C#m F#
Woah, oh, woah
        G#m
All the gunfights, and the limelights
        B
And the holy sick divine nights 

E     C#m F#
Woah
             G#m
They'll talk about us, all the lovers
       B
How we kissed and killed each other 

E     C#m F#
Woah
             G#m
They'll talk about us, and discover
       B
How we kissed and killed each other 

E     C#m  F#
Woah (Talk about it)

G#m     B    E   C#m  F#

[Chorus 2]

G#m                         B
   We told you this was melodrama
E                               C#m   F#
   You wanted something that we offered
G#m                         B
   We told you this was melodrama
E                               C#m   F#
   You wanted something that we offered

G#m                         B
   We told you this was melodrama

   You wanted something that we offered
G#m                         B
   We told you this was melodrama
E                               C#m   F#
   You wanted something that we offered
G#m                         B
