lyrics & basic chords (relative to capo)...

G               G
Say the words I cannot say

C            C
Say them on another day

G                   G                  D          C
Fragile words like these will cut your tongue

      G                 G
Was I good enough? Was I bad enough?

      C                       C
When I wanted more, yeah, you had enough

Em                  C           Em              D             G
 But nobody's gonna try for you, nobody's gonna do like I for you

(chords same as first verse)
And every slow-lit cigarette that nervous hands can barely get the courage
I could always feel your eyes
And those dresses you made look like gowns
You're a sinner but the devil didn't turned you down

Em                   C           Em              D              G    G/F#
 But, nobody's gonna try for you, nobody's gonna do like I for you

Em              C           Em                 C
 Nobody's gonna try for you, and nobody's gonna lie for you

Em                  D              G
 And nobody's gonna do like I for you

Bridge chords: D C C D E E

(chords same as first verse)
Hold me like you never could, I'll hold you like I said I would
Air or light won't breathe nor shine between
With your feather lips, yeah, you fly away
Well I hope they come back down someday, 'cos

(chords same as first chorus)
Nobody's gonna try for you, nobody's gonna do like I for you
Somebody's getting by for you, I don't bend, I just break in two
Somebody like me... I'd die for you

Thank you for tabbing this one out. This tab is probably the most accurate tab I've ever seen. My mother, who is in love with the song, though not the band (for now) even walked in on me as I started playing this. My mother, and my sister are begging me to teach them now. Really, thank you. Any chance of "Dance Inside?" :0)

 To add to this, the bridge should have this bass notes, and the B minor picking should be sort of as seen below.
