Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the main riff you will play for the verses and is shown as F#5, A5, F#5 E5 
in the tabs here:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------- ------|
D|--4---4---7-4---2--2--2---2--2--2-----------------------------------|
A|--4---4---7-4---2--2--2---2--2--2-----------------------------------|
E|--2---2---5-2---0--0--0---0--0--0-----------------------------------|

You can do the A on the next string up with an 2 chord, but I find this way 
easier.  Most other chords, you can use full bar chords except the Bridge.  Just 
keep playing the pattern over each line until you reach a new chord.  Step 2:  
Find a really good bassist to play with you.


Intro:
F#5          A5         F#5           E5 (4x)

Verse
          F#5          A5         F#5           E5
Well Ya know that I want your loving,
but my logic tells me that it aint never gonna happen,
and then my defense is to say I didn't want it anyway,
but you know sometimes I'm a liar.

C#m                        B 
Could you ever want me to love you?
C#m                        B
Could you ever want me to care?
F#5          A5         F#5           E5
Disregard my nervousness,
please ignore my vacant stares,

Chorus
           C#m                B
'cause just what I've been through,
                                 A
is nothing like where I'm going to.
F#            A           F#           E
Give me some sign to pursue,
A promise,
                     B
and you're unhappy.
N.C.
...This is only a guess...

F#5          A5         F#5           E5(2x)


Verse 2
F#5          A5         F#5           E5
(guitar silent at first slowly fades in over similar bass line)

Do you know what it's like to hate
when it's way down deep inside?
Oh god, I hate what's been done to my life.
I could rule the pain,
I could rule the night,
or would I ruin my salvation,
ruin my mind.
Rule your pains,
rules of the night,
ruin your salvation,
ruin your miiiiiiiiiiiiiii.....
iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii....
iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiind.

Bridge:(For the A, I just play the open A string instead of the chord)

F#5     C#5  A     B5     N.C.
Ba da  ba    da    ba      bop bop ba da da     
(4X)

Play full F# bar chord here once and let ring right after last "da"
oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

2,3,4!

Third Verse (same as the first, but stuttering a bit.) 

F#5          A5         F#5           E5
Y'know that I want your loving,
but then Mr. Logic, Mr. Logic tells me that it aint never gonna happen,
and then my defense is to say I didn't, I didn't want it anyway,
but you know sometimes I'm a liar.

C#m                        B 
Could you ever want me to love you?
C                          B
Could you ever want me to care?
F#5          A5         F#5           E5
Disregard my nervousness,
please ignore my vacant stares,

           C#m                B
'cause just what I've been through,
                                A
is nothing like where I'm going to.

F#            A           F#           E
Give me some sign to pursue,
A promise,
A promise,

B
and you're unhappy,
and you're unhappy,
and you're unhappy,
and you're unhappy.
N.C.
This is only a guess
