This is the opening riff is like this, the other part is done with la's, but if you want to play it too, just play 9 on the G, 11 then 9 on the D string. The intro is just an E chord. It sounds better with a 5th root barre chord, how James Mercer plays it. When James does the intro acoustically, he sometimes removes all but the barred root while playing, gives a nice sound when played this way. EBorn to multCmiply or born to gaze intFmo night skies, Fm allAm you Awant's one moAmre SaFmturday. EBut look here, until thCmen They're gonna buy your Fmlife's time Fm So keAmep your wick in Athe air and your fAmeet in theFm fetters BTil the day, we come in doing cartEwheels We all crawl out by ourBselves, and your shape on the danEce floor Will have me thinking such fiBlth I'll gouge my eyes. You'll be dCmamned to be Aone of us girl FCmaced with the dAodo's conundrum E FmI felt like I could just Afly But nAmothing happened every time I BtriAedAm. Fm EDuotone on the waCmll, the selfless fool who hoped he'dFm saved us all Fm neAmver dreAamt of such sAmterile Fmhands EYou keep them folded in your Cmlap, or raise them up to Fmbeg for scraps FmYou Amknow he's hoAlding you down with the tAmips of his finFmgers, jBust the same Will you be pulled from the oEcean? But just a minute too laBte? Or changed by a poEtion, and find a handsome young mBate for you to love you'll be damCmned to pining through the wiAndow panes, you know Cmyou'll trade your life for any ordinAary joEe's,Fm well do it now or grow Aold Cos your nightmares oAmnly need a year or two to unBfoAldAm Fm

BBeen alone since you were 21, Eyou haven't laughed since January BYou try and make like this is so much fun, Ebut we know it to be be quite contrary BLa la la la la la CmDare to be onAe of us, girl, facCming the androAid's conundrum E IFm felt like I should just cAry AmBut nothing happens every time I tAake one on the chin Yeah HimAmmler in your coat you don't know hAow long I've been AmWatching the lanAtern dim, stAmarved of oxygeAn, oh so gFmive me your hand and lets juAmp out the wiBndow E until end. I've put in all the bits that were missing from previous versions, for instance, I put in the rundown of the chords at the end of the verses etc. It looks quite confusing, but if you listen to the song, you'll get the timing and it'll sound great! Hope you enjoy! Please rate! Been playing guitar for less than a year and only made a few tabs before. Hope this helps you achieve pure shins goodness!
