4/4 time        --->    guitar capo 4th fret    <-----

(verse 1)
|G      /       /       /       |Em     /       /       /       |
        over the rooftops a             plane in the sky

|G      /       /       /       |Em     /       /       /       |
        beat of a bass drum cars        passing me by

|A      /       /       /       |Em     /       /       /       |
        under a bridge dark then        back into light

|A      /       /       /       |Em     /       /       /       |
   a    river of raincoats & a   forest of      faces

(verse 2)
        still for a moment then red into green
        slow shuffling shoes whisper sight unseen
        row upon row of houses return an empty stare
        let the daydream for a little while longer

|G      /       /       /       |D      /       /       /       |
        (vocal adlib)

|Am     /       /       /       |C      /       /       /       |
 hope i'll never wake            when i'm       thinking about you

|G      /       /       /       |D      /       /       /       |
        (vocal adlib)

|Am     /       /       /       |C      /       /       /       |
 hope I'll never wake       `cuz now I'm thinking about you

|Am     /       /       /       |

(verse 3)
        two-minute hailstorm then melts into rain
        sing me a rainbow it's sunny again
        swallows overhead while the traffic snarls below
        could I, could I keep dreaming for a little while longer

        hope I'll never wake
        when I'm thinking about you
        so that you know - never want to wake
        `cuz now I'm thinking about you

|Em     /       /       /       |F      /       /       /       |
  when you're    searching your   soul  when you're searching for

|C      /       /       /       |Am     /       /       /       |
  pleasure                   how  often          pain is all you

|Em     /       /       /       |F      /       /       /       |
  find   but when you're coasting along        & nobody's trying

|C      /       /       /       |D     /       /        /       |
  too hard                     you can  turn around & like where you are

(play chorus without vocal and without the Am bar on the end)

        I hope I never wake
        when I'm thinking about you
        & I close my eyes
        now I'll never never wake
        why should I stop thinking about you

(end on G chord)

Notes:  the tune on the CD seems to be at least two electric guitars,
but this translates well to an acoustic. I would tab out the guitar
parts, but 1. i'm too lazy and 2. whatever it is that the electrix
are playing, it's based heavily on the chords anyway.

nice tab but i think the Em on the last line of the verse below is wrong. listen to the cd, it drops to what sounds like a Cm but can only get it if the capo is on 2nd. what do ya reckon?

|A / / / |Em / / / |
a river of raincoats & a forest of faces

Thanks for the tab. This transciption works great if (1) you place the capo on the second fret and move your chords a full step to stay in the same key as the song (start with an A rather than a G), and (2) you play with open (high) E and B strings for some of the chords (A, F#m, B).
