At the end of the verse, do the intro like this (b is bend and r is release),
with 2 quick beats squeezed in at the end...

       1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2

Repeat the main riff and verse part, then the intro again (but this time
repeat the 3 notes of the intro 4 times, with 1 extra beat sqeezed in at
the end), and then drop out for a quick drum break, now play this 8 times...

     E

  D|--------------------------11---------------11-/-12---12--------------------------------------|
  A|-----------------------------12--------------------------------------------------------------|
  E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This time, one guitar plays this, the other plays it as above, it's only different at the end...

     E                   A                          D
  E|------------------------------------------------------------------------10---10---12---14----|

  B|-9-------------17---------12p9---12-----------------------10-10-10----------12----10h12p10\--|
  G|-------------------------------9-----------------11-11-11------------------------------------|
  D|----------------------------------------12-12-12---------------------------------------------|
  A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Next, play this twice (second time skip that opening 13th fret G#)...

     E
  E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  B|----------10-7---9---7---------------------10-7---9---7---------------------|
  G|-13------------9-------9-7---7\6----------------9-------9-7---7\6-----------|
  D|---------------------------9-----7--------------------------9-----7-6-7-8-9-|
  A|-----------------------------------7----------------------------------------|

  E|----------------------------------------------------------|
  B|----------10-7---9---7--------------------9----9-10-12----|
  G|---------------9-------9-7---7h9p7---9/11---11---------9~-|
  D|---------------------------9-------9----------------------|
  A|-7--------------------------------------------------------|
  E|----------------------------------------------------------|

Then this...

  E|------------------------------------------------------------------|
  B|-10-7---9---7-----7h9p7---7-----7h9p7---7-----7h9p7---7-----7h9p7-|
  G|------9-------9-7-------7---9-7-------7---9-7-------7---9-7-------|
  D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
  A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
  E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

And back to the D > E, wail a rippin solo, then intro riff again (7 times)
and finish with 2 big E's.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


intro: Riff 1
  ------------------------------------------------------------|
  ---7-->--9-9-9-<-7-7------5-5-5--7----7-->---9-9-9-<-7-7-5--|
  ---7-->--9-9-9-<-7-7------6-6-6--7----7-->---9-9-9-<-7-7-6--|
  ---7-->--9-9-9-<-7-7------7-7-7--7----7-->---9-9-9-<-7-7-7--|
  ------------------------------------------------------------|
  ------------------------------------------------------------|
    Slide up    slide down

This is a playful little riff, you slide up then down. This is what follows the little drum
fill in the intro.  For the intro it's played 4 times. Litsten to a recording for the timing.

Main feel/Lyrics: riff 2

  --------2----------------------------|
  --------3----------2------------0----|
  --------2----------2------------1----|
  -------------------2------------2----|
  --------------------------------2----|
  --------------------------------0----|

(You sort of roll off the a and hit the E. again listen to a recording for the timing!)
  D             A    E
   No Matter how you fall
  D                A        E
   It shouldn't bother you at all           Etc, Etc. Stays the same througout the lyrics.

Bridge: Riff 3

I play it like this, I don't think that it's exactly right but it sounds good and it's what
I have for now! I play this part using open chords.

  D --> A --> E --> D --> A----| > E
  D --> A-- > E --> D --> A ---| E

Then back to the intro riff 1, play it twice instead of 4 times as it's played in the beginning.


Now comes the second verse, it is played exactly like the first

This is the orchestrated section after the E-E---EE---DD--D--E--D--E

  |---------------------------------------------7--|
  |---9-9-7-h-9---9-p-7---------------------7-7----|
  |-------------9-------9---9-p-7---7-7-9-9--------|
  |-----------------------7-------9----------------|
  |------------------------------------------------|
  |------------------------------------------------|

Lyrics:

  No matter how you fall
  it shouldn't bother you at all
  it could take more to overcome less in a day
  No matter how you break
  you shouldn't be the one to take
  your own opinions as they twist in their own way
  when all she wants is to be left
  off to the side and counted with the rest
  all she wants is to be spared
  from voting for a candidate who doesn't care
  Through many more have been provided
  when the only one decided
  is someone who's left to wait
  and any promise worth fufilling
  what when only one needs selling
  isn't one to leave till late

  No matter how it's read
  only so much can be said
  about subscribing to a point that has no ground
  no matter how it feels
  your speculation isn't real
  nothing can be guaged until it comes around
  when all she want's..............
  and thought the end may seem divided
  every story is two sided
  but it's only yours you'll know
  and truth be told if you are willing
  then that promises fufilling
  is what only time could show
