Loving the alien-Contraband
Tabbed by scott bennett

I decided to tab this song as ITS A GREAT SONG and
no1 seems to hav done it properly yet especialy the chorus riff
so here u go

Youve got the chords in the verse fairly straight forward

C                             Am
Sometimes I think I'm scared, sometimes I know.
Em                       G
I feel like making love, sometimes I don't.
C                       Am
I feel like letting go, maybe not.
Em                     G
I feel like giving up, is all we got.


Chorus:

F            G                 F           G
Sometimes is all the time, and never means maybe.
F            G 
Sometimes is all the time,
C                     G
maybe, and I'm moving on, 
   C                  G
       and I'm moving on, (sometimes I feel alone), 
   C                  G   C                 G 
       and I'm moving on,    and I'm moving on.

The next bit sounds like and F then a fill then a G
so its like

E--1--1-----------------------3--3-------------|
B--1--1-----------------------3--3-------------|
G--2--2-----------------------0--0-------------| x3
D--3--3-----------------------0--0-------------|
A--4--4---------8-7-5---------2--2-------------|
E--1--1----------------8-7-5--3--3-------------|

And the second guitar just plays the same sort of riff on the low strings

E------8--------8-7-5---------5--/--7----------|
B----6-----------------8-7-5-------------------|
G----------------------------------------------| x3
D----------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------|

now the chorus now all the tabs ive seen for this riff have been horribly 
wrong so heres a decent version of the riff that actually sounds like it.

E------15----13----15----12----15----13----12-13-15------15----13----15----12----15----13----12-13-15---|
B---13----13----13----13----13----13----13------------12----12----12----12----12----12----12------------|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E------15----13----15----12----15----13----12-13-15------15----13----15---------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------12----12----12----12----15b(17)r------------------|
G---14----14----14----14----14----14----14--------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

And kushner plays the chords

F            G                 F           G
Sometimes is all the time, and never means maybe.
F            G 
Sometimes is all the time,
C                     G
maybe, and I'm moving on, 
   C                  G
       and I'm moving on, (sometimes I feel alone), 
   C                  G   C                 G 
       and I'm moving on,    and I'm moving on

Then theres a piece of lead in the verse with a slide
from the bend at the end of the chorus:
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---15b(17)r-\-13----12\--10---10/--12---13/--15--15\--13--12\--10--10/--12--13/--15~---|
G---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

verse bridge & chorus

Then the bridge theres a sort of acoustic solo over the chords

Bridge:

D       C            G                       G
I never noticed. How lovely were the aliens? Lovely were the aliens. 
D       C            G                       G
I never noticed. How lovely were the aliens? Lovely were the aliens.
