Tabbed by: Stephen Funk
E-mail: StephenLFunk@gmail.com

The first bit of this tab is just the chords. I tabbed out a couple of the riffs at the end. The chord endings
in parenthesis are optional add-ons based on what the harp is doing in the background. The "(x2)" bit in the
middle indicates where the chords are to be played for twice the usual duration (four beats instead of two).
I primarily used the sub bass for the chords' roots, but looked at every instrument for the complete chord.

Any of the Em chords may be played as C/E. It is sort of ambiguous.

Tuning: Standard

Chords:

F Em Fmaj7 C

F(9)              Em
I dreamed that I, had lost you
F(maj7)    C
I woke up, with a tear

F                       Em
I think you left it on, my pillow case
Dm
The last time you were here

F                         Em
And we came from nowhere; we came from nothing
F                           C
And we could go back there, if that's what it takes

F
But I made a promise
Em
That I'd try to keep you
Dm
Until the ribbon breaks
Dm
Until the ribbon breaks

[A couple of bars of eerie noises]

F             Em
I wonder why, I came home
F                C
More red letters, through my door
F                    Em
Oh but you just came from nowhere
Dm
We've been sleeping on the floor
Dm
I don't feel homesick anymore

[Double time on those chords for the instrumental bridge... 2 beats per chord change]
Fmaj7 C  Dm Dm    <--- Angel choir pad
Fmaj7 C  Dm Dm    <--- Bells come in here
Fmaj7 C  Dm Dm
Fmaj7 C  Dm Dm
Fmaj7 Am G  G 
Dm    Dm Dm Dm

[Children's choir comes in]
Fmaj7 [Fmaj7]  Cadd9/E [Cadd9/E]

F     C        Dm                        

F         C               Dm Dm
So who am I to cheat time?
F                             C
I've been trying to gauge the ending
Dm                      Dm
And you'll do just fine
F                    Am
So use me, taped and broken,
G                      G
Like your favorite old tape
Dm                                 Dm
We could just play out through the summer,
Dm                      Dm
Until the ribbon breaks

F         C               Dm Dm

Until the ribbon breaks
