The guitars both repeat their parts, and the string section adds these two measures over the E5 chord |--------------------------------------------------| |--------------------------------------------------| |--------------------------------------------------| |--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--| |--------------------------------------------------| |--------------------------------------------------|
|--4--5--4--5--4--5--4--5--4--5--4--5--7--| |-----------------------------------------| |-----------------------------------------| |-----------------------------------------| |-----------------------------------------| |-----------------------------------------|
The second time, guitar 2 plays this instead of the last measure, and continues into the verse:
|---------------------------------------------------|-------| |---------------------------------------------------|-------| |---------------------------------------------------|-------| |--6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)--|--2/4--| |---------------------------------------------------|-------| |---------------------------------------------------|-------|
Verse: (chords played by organ) D A E She comes to me at night when I'm sleeping She comes to me when I'm alone She comes to me She holds my head when I'm crying She comes to me She shuts my eyes She brings me home
Chorus: Guitar 1 plays the same E5 A progression it did in the intro; The string section plays the same thing it did in the intro; Guitar 2 plays the same part it played in the intro, except that it omits that first chord that swells up over the E5 chord, and it replaces the last measure with: |--4b(5)r4b(5)r4b(5)r4--| |-----------------------| |-----------------------| |-----------------------| |-----------------------| |-----------------------|
E5 A E5 But I'm not sleeping anymore... anymore
Verse: She tells me when you look at me She tells me when you're lying She tells me when you talk about me She lays me on the floor She tells me when you're whispering She lies beside me naked She tells me when you laugh at me and she locks all the doors
* (w/ Fill 1, played by gtr. 2, first time only) But I'm not sleeping anymore
Fill 1 |---------|----------| |--12~~~--|--12~~~\--| |---------|----------| |---------|----------| |---------|----------| |---------|----------|
Instead of the last measure of the repeat of the chorus, the song moves into the bridge:
E5 E5maj7 |--------------------------|--------------------------| |--------------------------|--------------------------| |--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--|--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--| Both guitars |--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--| play this |--------------------------|--------------------------| 1 3/4 times |--------------------------|--------------------------|
