verse's:

        [B]nothing l[E]eft to s[G]ay

        [B]and all i've [E]left to [G]do
        [B]is run a[E]way from [G]you
        and she let me [B]on [E]down
        with [G]secrets i can't [B]keep[E]
NOW play with Gtr.1 >fig.b<

        [G]close your eyes and [B]sleep[E]

        [G]don't wait up for [B]me[E]
        [G]hush now don't you [B]speak[E] to [G]me
Now for this part you could just use wah effect while
stricking the ninth fret of g string once. let it ring out
but have some fun with it. Listen to the song to get the feel.

        [B]wrapped my [E]hurt in [G]you

        [B]and took my [E]shelter in that [G]pain
        [B]the opi[E]ate of [G]blame
        is your broken [B]heart [E]heart your [G]heart
Again play with Gtr. >fig.b<

        so now [B]i'm all [E]by my[G]self
        [B]as i've [E]always [G]felt

        and [B]i'll be[E]tray my [G]tears
        to any[B]one [E]caught [G]in our ruse of [F#]fools
        [B]one last kiss for me yeah[F#]
        [B]one last kiss
        good [G]night
Here is that little intro solo played with an ebow on an acoustic
(good luck trying to reproduce this sound, it's hard BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE)
if you don't have an ebow or dont know what it is simply play this in a lite
sounding effect to give it a bedtime sleepy sound.

Gtr.1 Bend many x's

        didn't want to [F]be your [A]friend[C]   [G]

        fulfilled a [F]promise made of [A]tin[C]   [G]
        and crawled back to [F]you
(darcy and billy with backup)
         i'[B]m all by[E] myse[G]lf  (close your eyes and sleep)

        [B]as i've [E]always [G]felt    (don't wait up for me)

        and [B]i'll be[E]tray my[G]self (hush now don't you speak)
        to any[B]one [E]lost
        [G]anyone but you
Kickass solo here, while playing B-E-G- under solo

        [A]   [C]   [G]  so let the [F]sadness come ag[A]ain[C]   [G]

        on t[F]hat you can
        [E]depend o[G]n me
        [D]until the [C]bitter bitter [E]end
       [G] of the [D]world
        when god sleeps in [C]bliss
        and [B]i'm all [E]by my[G]self
        [B]as i've [E]always [G]felt
        and [B]i'll be[E]tray [G]myself
        to any[B]one[E]. [G]
