VERSE 1: Play bass string first and the the chord. Bend all the E high.
( Tab from: )
[Bm]Though it's hard to admit it's [F#]true
E E high
I've come to depend on you
[Bm]you and your angelic [F#]shout
E E high
loud enough for two
Em7 G add5 A (Fill 1)
and that is why
I'll [Em7]confide in you the [G]tr[add5]uth this time[A]
Em7 G add5 A (Fill 1)
that is why
Em7 G add5 A (Fill 2)
I just can't go on and live this lie
VERSE 2: Strumming, but the same chords as verse 1.
Yesterday all was right as rain
but now the forecast not (Fill 3)
it's partly cloudy with trouser stains
and his copy of enquiring minds (Fill 4)
VERSE 3: Repeat verse 1 chords
But that never meant that much to her
she chose to keep her nose too clean
she'd rather keep it pointed anyway
in spite of a magazine (Fill 5)
Chord 1: 2 Chord 2: 2
0 0
1 0
Strumming, just the E, B and G strings.
[F#]And[sus4] when you say I [F#]trust in you
Chord 1 Chord 2
I promise you the truth
Play each string
[F#]And[sus4] when you say I [F#]bet you won't
Chord 1 Chord 2
you know I will
Chord 2 (and something I don't know what it is)
and it'll be better in the end
SOLO (Chorus chords)
VERSE 4: Repeat verse 1 chords
So when you think you've got it figured out
then you know you don't
like all the rest you'd like to sit and put
but of course you won't
CHORUS once, then CHORUS with just "that is why..." all the time.
 Then fade out with picking -----------2-- -----2--------|
