                   This is my girlfriend's favourite song (not to mention favourite band)so I
thought I'd learn it to make me look sexy and make her happy haha. It's a fairly
simple song once you get the strumming pattern down. It helps to play along with
the music. This song is probably my favourite from Turin Brakes as well and since
no one had tabbed it I thought I'd give it a shot. Love you Rhea, this one's for
you bazebey.

h   - hammer on
p   - pull off
\\  - slide down
//  - slide up
b   - bend
~~  - vibrato
<7> - natural harmonic
*   - let ring

 Tips: Try and stress on the notes played on the G String, they really carry the tune...

Lyrics:

Opened my eyes had a dream last night that both my arms were broken,
Evenin' time,
Help me now or hold me down, i feel my world is tumblin',
Spiral down,
Oh my love i can`t let go,
Somethings wrong i can`t let go,
Natures cruel she laughs at me,
As i make my way through the century,
As i slowly turn to house dust,
Tumblin' down,
The rain comes down like a victory,
In sheets of shinin' memory,
Over and over,
Circlin' around,
Over and over,
can`t let go,
Somethings wrong i can`t let go,
Natures cruel she laughs at me,
Almost too much for my heart,
When it rains,
Oh tears my soul apart,
When it rains it rains so slowly,
In the city where i'm from,
