[Asus2]: x-0-2-2-3-0
[A]: x-0-2-2-2-0


You’re on the [D] wild side
You’re out [G] running free
Your lights are on [Asus2] when there’s darkness
The other side is [D] all you see

Not a worry for what [D] comes around
We’ll all be tested [G] just the same
You’re on the [A] wild side [Asus2]
That will always [D] remain

You’re on the [G] wild side
That’s where you’ll [D] always be [Asus2]
You’re living [G] proof that there’s grace in this [D] world
On the wild [Asus] side living free

What can never be [D] taken away
You push that stone [G] up the hill
Nothing can change your [Asus2] way of living
Not tomorrow, not [D] today

Marquees don’t really [D] matter
We’ll all be tested [G] in time
I’ll look for you on the [A] wild side [Asus2]
Through smoke and [D] dim lights


[G] [D] [Asus2] x2
End on [D]

I play that Asus2 as a standard open A- the sus2 sounds a little flat to me, but either way, good tab. Kind of makes it easy for us amateurs when Jay writes an entire album using three chords :-)
