INTRO:		D    E7    G    D

		      D             E7
VERSE 1:        green light, seven-eleven
		         G        D
		you stop in for a pack of cigarettes
		          D                 E7
		you don't smoke, don't even want to
		G                  D
		hey now check your change
		        D         E7
		dressed up like a car crash
		     G                             D
		your wheels are turning but you're upside down

		Em                                   D
BRIDGE 1:        you say when he hits you, you don't mind
		Em                                   D
		 because when he hurts you, you feel alive
		E7          G               D
		hey now, is that what it is?

		    D           E7
VERSE 2:        red light, grey morning
		    G                D
		you stumble out of a hole in the ground
		  D            E7
		a vampire or a victim?
		     G                    D
		it depends on who's around
		            D                    E7
		you used to stay in to watch the adverts
		          G                D
		you could lip-synch to the talk shows

BRIDGE 2:        and if you look, you look through me
		 and when you talk, you talk at me
		G                                A
		 and when i touch you, you don't feel a thing

		           Em                                 D
CHORUS 1:       if i could stay then the night would give you up
		Em                               D
		stay and the day would keep it's trust
		Em                           D
		stay and the night would be enough

		    D       E7
VERSE 3:        faraway, so close
		            G              D
		up with the static and the radio
		         D        E7
		with satelite television
		        G       D
		you can anywhere
		  D          E7     G               D
		miami, new orleans, london, belfast and berlin

BRIDGE 3:        and if you listen i can't call
		F#m                              G 
		 and if you jump you just might fall
		and if you shout i'll only hear you

		           Em                                 D
CHORUS 2:       if i could stay then the night would give you up
		Em                                D
		stay then the day would keep it's trust
		stay with the demons you drowned
		stay with the spirits i found
		G                            D
		stay and the night would be enough

		     D        E7       G        D
SOLO:           wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo, wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo
		     D        E7       G        D
		wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo, wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo

		    D             E7
VERSE 4:        3 o'clock in thge morning
		     G                 D
		it's quiet and there's no-one around
		         D            E7
		just the bang and the clatter
		      G              D
		as an angel runs to ground
		         D            E7
		just the bang and the clatter
		      G                    D
		as an angel hits the ground

This is fabulous, thanks! There's only two slight revision that I'd suggest:
1) I prefer to play E in the verse (not E7)
2) I prefer using A7 at the end of the bridge (not A), as it creates more of a climax.

Great song and a great tab, thanks! :-)
