The National - Apartment Story

I'm not 100% sure of all the chord names. 
I've watch this a few times on acoustic on youtube. 
Its not 100% accurate with the way he plays it but these shapes and chords work perfect. 
For the B and Em in the chorus he plays it closer to the head of the guitar but 
it works fine this way too.

Standard tuning - No Capo.

   B/F#     B/G#    C#/D#      E           B       Em

B/F#                          B/G#                        C#/D#     E
Be still for a second while I try and try to pin your flowers on
B/F#                     
Can you carry my drink I have everything else
     B/G#
I can tie my tie all by myself
       C#/D#             E
I’m getting tied, I’m forgetting why

B/F#                               B/G#
Oh we’re so disarming darling, everything we did believe
   C#/D#                       E
is diving diving diving diving off the balcony
B                              Em
Tired and wired we ruin too easy
C#/D#                                    E
sleep in our clothes and wait for winter to leave

B/F#                             B/G#                 C#/D#            E
Hold ourselves together with our arms around the stereo for hours
B/F#
While it sings to itself or whatever it does
        B/G#
when it sings to itself of its long lost loves
       C#/D#             E
I’m getting tied, I’m forgetting why

B                               Em
Tired and wired we ruin too easy
C#/D#                               E  
sleep in our clothes and wait for winter to leave
B                               Em               B
but I’ll be with you behind the couch when they come
                             Em
on a different day just like this one

B/F#
We’ll stay inside til somebody finds us
B/G#
do whatever the TV tells us
C#/D#                       E
stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz for days

B/F#
We’ll stay inside til somebody finds us
B/G#
do whatever the TV tells us
C#/D#                       E
stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

B
so worry not
Em
all things are well
B
we’ll be alright
             Em
we have our looks and perfume

B/F#
stay inside til somebody finds us
B/G#
do whatever the TV tells us
C#/D#                       E
stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

B
so worry not
Em
all things are well
B
we’ll be alright
             Em
we have our looks and perfume on

this is definitely the best tab on UG, the others fail at the little riff thing between B/F# and B/G#. Are you sure its an Em in the chorus tho? sounds like it should just be an E
Awesome tab tho man!

Very nice. Only thing I noticed is that maybe for B/G#, 424444 works better. Just thinking. Sounds like it works better. Not the best though.

I'm pretty sure this tab is correct, it's that x79897 you've written as an Em should actually be called an Emaj7.
