The guitar has a slight delay effect on it in the song.
Basically all of the song is played on PALM MUTE.
I'll post the lyrics with chords above it first, 
and tabs for the different parts at the bottom.
During the interlude post-chorus, the Gm chord goes for 1 extra beat
before switching to the F/A chord.

Cheers! Thanks for the 5 star vote too! :) very much appreciated with the new UG rating system requiring 3(?) votes before it starts showing the rating + since I tend to tab out less well-known songs/artists.

Working on some other songs so haven't really started on anything, but I did plan to do some more Ofelia K tabs. Any suggestions on what you wanna see?
