Abm/C#            Abm   A             E   Esus4
down there in the waves, painted and erased
E*               Abm/Eb D                     F#m  E

C#m         Eaug5           E/B             Eb/Bb     A**
and i'll be waiting still impatient with my dead imagination
                             Am   /B /C
while you're with some other man

Abm/C#        Abm  A                E

Abm/C#             Abm   A                  E   Esus4
i'm walking out to place my arms around the moon
E*                   Abm/Eb D                F#m

  1. I think it’s pretty crazy that someone else left a comment on this song today since I finally decided to learn it. The B/F# has an incorrect note on the 5th string (a natural D), but this sounds right to me: 46456x. Thanks for the great tabs, this is one of my favorites.

  2. hello, first thank you for the tabs for this song, I love this song it’s so haunting. However I’m having a hard time finding out the correct patterns. Could anybody give me a hand with this please? :p

  3. @fg400a I realized there was a typo in B/F# and it’s been fixed.

    @allaf It’s really not too bad once you get it down. There’s a flow to it once you figure out the most efficient fingerings. It’s just a matter of finding it. I’ll leave that as an exercise to the reader. haha.
