This song is a really cool & mellow song written by Gavin Rossdale.
It is off the Sixteen Stone album.  If anyone has any information 
Bush touring New York area, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, e-mail me.  
here is the song. (this is the best i could do!)

Bass parts
in the song, there are many parts where the bass plays the main riff.
it is basically the same riff with a slight variation.

G |---------------------------------------------------------|
D |---11-----9----7---9--7--2---4------4-----4-----4---4----|
A |-0-----0-----0---0-------0---0---0-----0-----0----0---0--|
E |---------------------------------------------------------|

G |---------------------------------------------------------|
D |---11-----9----7---7---7--9--4----4---4---4--------------|
A |-0-----0-----0---0---0----0--0--0---0---0----------------|
E |---------------------------------------------------------|

**guitar will sometimes play the same thing as the bass is playing

s=let note or notes ring
h=hammer on

part A:
i'm pretty sure that this is the chorus

A |-----| G |-----| D |-----| B |-----| 
  |-----|   |-----|   |-----|   |-----|
  |-----|   |-----|   |--7--|   |--4--|
  |--7--|   |--5--|   |--7--|   |--4--| (the B could be a C-chord)
  |--7--|   |--5--|   |--5--|   |--2--|
  |--5--|   |--3--|   |-----|   |-----|

the chorus pretty much goes like that A-G-D-B progression

Fill #1:
this is played frequently in the song, if you listen
you will be able to here where.
E |--------------------------|
B |--------------------------|
G |--------------------------| (play as many times as needed)
D |--9h11--9h11--9h11--9h11--|
A |--------------------------|
E |--------------------------|


Fill #2:
this part comes in at 1.50 in the song (after 1st chorus), and 
maybe some other parts, i don't know i didn't check.
E |---------------------------------|
B |-----5-----------5--------5------|(play as many times as needed)
G |-----------7---------7--------7--|(improvise when needed)

G |--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--| (close enough) 
D |-------------------|
A |-------------------|
E |-------------------|
*=start gradual bend, bend up 1/2 step slowly
**=finish of last note when you finally reach the 1/2 step bend


Fill #5:
starts at 3.01, then just play the octave slide again at about 3.11, 
3.19, 3.26, and maybe at some other places that i missed

     bend up a whole step
E |--------------------------------------------|
B |--/\----------------------------------------|

A |--3s-----3--2--3--2--3--3--5--3s-----3--2--3--2--3--3--5--|
E |------------0-----0---------------------0-----0-----------|

E |--------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------|
G |--5-5-5-5-----------------------------------|
D |--5-5-5-5-etc......-------------------------|
A |--3-3-3-3-(play the c-chord a lot of times--|
E |--------------------------------------------|

there is an outro solo at the end of the song somewhere around
4 minutes into the song (give or take 20 seconds), i don't have
time to figure it out, however, if you would like to write you own
little solo for it (like i have) the below notes will work just really
good for a solo.  If you do it right, it could sound really great. 
The notes are in no particular order, just from high to low, work with
it see what happens.
E |---------------------------------------------------------|
B |---------------------------------------------------------|
G |---------------------------------------------------------|
D |------------------0--2--4--6--7--9--11--14--16--18--19---|
A |----------0--2--4----------------------------------------|
E |-0--2--4-------------------------------------------------|

E |----------------------------------------------------------|
B |---------------------------(7--8--10--12--14--15--17--19)-|
G |--7--9--11--14--16--18--19--------------------------------|
D |----------------------------------------------------------|
A |----------------------------------------------------------|
E |----------------------------------------------------------|

E |-(7--9--10--12--14--15--17--19)-|
B |--------------------------------|
G |--------------------------------|
D |--------------------------------|
A |--------------------------------|
E |--------------------------------|

work with it
p.s. the notes in the parenthesis, i don't use 'em, it sounds 
better if you don't but if you want to go ahead


well the satelite comes and goes
we give each other all we know
in silence we still walk
and will you rain down
in your cinematic love truck
i want to hold you like nothing's going stop us
she come to take me away
it's all that i needed
i don't breathe another lover
flicker on the t.v. screen
everything's more than it seems
the mighty backward fall
stare at the lights on the wall
i swear to this
she felt like velvet
second blonde child she meant it
she come to take me away
it's all that i needed
i don't breathe another lover
i'm an alien
you're and alien
it's a beautiful rain
beautiful rain
beautiful rain
