See The Sun

I've been waiting for the right moment to submit my first tab, and when I couldn't find 
tabs for this great song I just had to have a go at it! Hope you will like it.

This is transcribed form their acoustic preformance on NRK Lydverket in Norway. To hear 
and get the right rythm you should look it up on youtube, cause it's quite different 
the album version. Much more slowed down. But a great version!

Capo 6

 C             Am           Em             G

Use the riff above for this part:

Oh no! I didn't mean to say what I did say
All about lovers and how they should lay
That was never for me to say and say
Don't you see now how I pay

F                            G
I see the sun rising
                               Am  G   C
And all you see is its fall, fall, fall

Intro/ verse riff:

So come on up
Wasn't it you who said life was like a plastic cup
To be used and then disposed of
Yeah but thats no way to live a life like yours
Don't you see now how i pay

F                           G
I see the sun rising
                                Am  G    F
And all you see is its fall, fall, fall

Em              F                G                C    G
For all the times i never, never turned away
Em              F                G
And now she is there on someone else's arms [x2]

i dunno if there are any other good tabs
but in the studio version,
the electric guitar that comes in plays C, Am, Em, G, all played with your pinky on the high E, 3rd fret relative to capo.
even G, looking like 320003 not 320033

not that im correcting your version, it's just in case anyone was wondering.

Thx for the tab!
@aszimuth: can you elaborate that? I dont get your point. Is it in concern to the acoustic version? I mean since this is the tab for it.
Anyway, in the video the 2 guys are playing same thing a little different arent they?
The singer is on 6th fret all the time.
The guitar player is shifting frets up and down the neck.
Anyone have an idea what's that about?
I mean apparently they aren't playing the same exact thing, so this tab cant be the tab for the guy who plays guitar only.

This is very late, but the guy who plays guitar(Hugh) only is doing the same, but barring the first three chords on the 6th fret. The only difference is he's playing the G chord on the third fret up. I'm guessing they only had one capo so Luke used it since he seems to not be as good as Hugh in finger-picking.
