I found a transcription of this song at Nevada, but it needed a capo. My
version doesn't. Also, my intro riff transcription is different.
Anyway, enjoy!

A[C]nother d[D]ay..[Bm]..I c[Em]all and [D/F#bass]never speak
A[C]nd you would s[D]ay....n[Em]othing's c[D]hanged at[A/C#bass] all
A[C]nd I can't f[D]eel..[Bm]..much [Em]hope for [D/F#bass]anything
I[C]f I won't [D]be there....to c[Em]atch you [D]if you [A/C#bass]fall
Ag[C]ain, [G] it seems we m[D]eet, in the s[C]paces [G] in betw[D]een
We always s[C]ay, [G] it won't be l[D]ong, oh, but s[Em]omething's a[D]lways [Cadd9]wrong
(see INTRO Tab)
Another game....of putting things aside
As if we'll come....back to them sometime (same chords as
A brace of hope....a pride of innocence 1st verse)
And you would say....something has gone wrong
Ag[C]ain, [G] it seems we m[D]eet, in the s[C]paces [G] in betw[D]een
We always s[C]ay, [G] it won't be l[D]ong, oh, but s[Em]omething's a[D]lways [A/C#bass]wrong
[C] [D] [Bm] [Em] [D/F#bass] [/] [C] [D] [Em] [D] [A/C#bass] 
(play above progression twice, with vocal 'ooh's and 'aay's)
And ag[C]ain, [G] it seems we m[D]eet, in the s[C]paces [G] in betw[D]een
We always s[C]ay, [G] it won't be l[D]ong, oh, but s[Em]omething's a[D]lways [Cadd9]wrong
S[Em]omething's a[D]lways [Cadd9]wrong, s[Em]omething's a[C]lways w[D]rong[Dsus4] [D]
(play INTRO Tab, then verse progression twice to close)
[----]  
That 'A/C#bass' chord is played like this: x4222x , or add the 'A'
bass note, like so: 54222x. Also, leading into the chorus, try a
variation of opening up the treble strings, like this: 542000.
Cool song -- hope you like my arrangement!
