Chasing A Ghost  POP ETC

Standard tuning
Chords used:
Am: x 0 2 2 1 0
Em: 0 2 2 0 0 0
Dm: x 5 7 7 6 x
C: x 3 5 5 5 x
There's two little riffs that go before the strumming of
Am and Em in the verse so for our purposes i will refer
to this:
 
 e|---3-2-1-0-----|
 B|---0-0-0-1-----|
 G|---------2-----|
 D|---------2-----|
 A|---------0-----|
 E|---------------|

...as riff 1
and this:
 
 e|--0-0-0-0-0-0--|
 B|--3/5-3-1-0-0--|
 G|------------0--|
 D|------------2--|
 A|------------2--|
 E|------------0--|

...as riff 2
The song starts where wasted time leaves off right after riff 2,
so it comes in on Em, then plays riff one into Am.
Listen to the song to get the timing and rhythm right.
I don't think the lyrics are totally right but that's not what
you're here for so hopefully you won't mind.
Riff 1
[Am]And when you left this town
Riff 2 Em Riff 1
You had to change your name
[Am]You had to change your face
Riff 2 Em
To hide away the pain
But you'll [Dm]run from [C]heart to [Em]heart
Dm C Em Riff 1
Until you come right back to the start
[Am]You said we weren't safe
Riff 2 Em Riff 1
And vanished without a trace
Am (strum chord once and let ring)
It's hard to chase a bird
Riff 2 Em
When you don't have any wings
And you'll [Dm]fly straight [C]into a [Em]dawn
You'll come [Dm]back once safely [C]past your [Em]part
(the Em for the next part should be played as x79987)
(Strum each chord and let ring)
[Dm]You say you're a[Em]lone
but my arms are open wide[Dm]
You're looking for [Em]something
That you won't ever fin[Dm]d
Then this starts to play over the chords until Em at
"I'm beginning to think that it's better that way":
 
 e|-----------------------------------------------------------12(x12)-15(x12)|
 B|---------------------------------------------13(x12)-15(x12)--------------|
 G|7(x12)-9(x12)-10(x12)-12(x12)-14(x12)-16(x12)-----------------------------|
 D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(Start strumming the chords now, instead of letting ring)
[Dm]Now it's raining so hard
[Em]I can't see my own tears[Dm]
You're giving me [Em]reason
To put trust in my fears[Dm]
Now I'm chasing a g[Em]host
Cause there ain't no real [Dm]thing
There's only a [Em]carcass of
Where "I love you" should sta[Dm]y
I'm beginning to [Em]think
Em (This Em: 022000)
That it's better that way
Solo:
 
 e|--10-10-1010-7-7-77-10-10-1010-7-7-77-15-15-1515-12-12-1212-|
 B|------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|------------------------------------------------------------|
 D|------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|------------------------------------------------------------|
 E|------------------------------------------------------------|
 e|--10-10-1010-12-12-1212-12----12----14----15----12----12---14----15----|
 B|--------------------------13----13----13----13----13----13---13----13--|
 G|----------------------------14----14----14----14----14----14---14----14|
 D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
 E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

And I haven't figured out the rest of the solo so I usually
just go into riff 2 because that's what the other guitar is doing.
Riff 1
And one day you'll return
Riff 2
As open as a dove
Riff 1
And maybe then you'll ask
Riff 2
What happened to our love?
