Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Note: There are three versions of this song. I'm tabbing from the version found
on the 'Greatest Hits' and 'Staring at the Sea - The Singles' albums. I'm not
sure if there is any discernible difference between it and the versions found
on 'Seventeen Seconds' or the Tree Mix found on 'Mixed Up' as I've never really
listened to them all the way through.

The intro consists mainly of two parts. 

Pt. I - Played three times through as the bass comes in. This is the way I find
it easiest to play.
e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|-----2--------------|
D|----------3---2---3-|
A|--0-----0---0---0---|
E|--------------------|

Pt. II - Played once. Palm mute from the last note into the first Am chord.

B|----------0-1---------------|
G|-----2--------2-0-----------|

Am C F Dadd9 (two measures)

     Am             C
Come closer and see
F                  Dadd9
see into the trees
Am            C
find the girl
F             Dadd9
while you can
     Am             C
Come closer and see
F                 Dadd9
see into the dark
     Am               C
just follow your eyes
     F                Dadd9
just follow your eyes

Am C F Dadd9 (two measures)

(Am C F Dadd9 pattern)
I hear her voice
calling my name
the sound is deep
in the dark

I hear her voice
and start to run
into the trees
into the trees

B C A C
B C A F

Into the trees

Am C F Dadd9 (four measures)

(Am C F Dadd9 pattern)
Suddenly I stop
but i know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest
all alone

(Am C F Dadd9 pattern)
The girl was never there
it's always the same
I'm running towards nothing
again and again and again. . .

B C A C
and again. . .
B C A F
and again. . .
 
Am C F Dadd9 (repeats until song is finished)

I cannot figure out the final chord progression, unfortunately. Nevertheless,
those are the correct chords.
