Words and music by Jeff Paris

(Typed out by Mardi Gras(TNT))
I recently got a request for help with this one. Note that this has not been completely worked out, but should act as a foundation for you to work on. I found a little help for this from a friend of mine.
Notes: Rhy Fig 1 is played for the intro and also through the verses. Rhy Fig 2 is played during the chorus.
The intro sections should be played with distortion, so turn the gain up! The chorus section is played with very light distortion with some sort of a wave-like effect added.
Tablature explanation:
2^4 Hammer on from 2 to 4
4^2 Pull off from 4 to 2
2/4 Slide up from 2 to 4
4\2 Slide down from 4 to 2
2'(4) Bend up a whole step from 2 to 4

The lyrics:
Verse 1: Lost and alone in this city of darkness
Empty of lovers and full of lies
You build a wall between your dreams and the madness
I reach out my hand, but you run and hide
Pre chorus 1: I've watched you cry in the rain
I wanna bring back the joy again
Chorus 1: Open your heart to mine
I believe, I believe
You might be lucky this time
You might be lucky this time
Verse 2: No guarantees when you risk your emotion
So you surrender and it all went astray
Bitter and hopeless in your cold isolation
But you my love won't ever fade away
Pre chorus 2: I wanna dry all your tears, yes
You know there's nothing to fear, baby
Chorus 2: (Same as chorus 1)
Bridge: And when the shadows start to fall
Let my love break down the walls
