Verse: guitar 1 plays the A D progression with the same
rhythmic feel as in the intro (without the G)

A                 D
Gonna get back to basics
Guess I'll start it up again
I'm fallin' from the ceiling
                        * <- Gtr. 2 enters w/ wah, plays fill 1
You're falling from the sky now and then

Maybe you were shot down in pieces
Maybe I slipped in between
But we were gonna be the wildest people they ever hoped to see
Just you and me

Guitar 1 plays A D twice more, while guitar 2 plays this:

Chorus:
E                    D    E                 D
   So why'd you come home to this sleepless town
It's a lifetime commitment
Recovering the satellites
All anybody really wants to know is...
when you gonna come down

Your mother recognizes all your desperate displays
and she watches as her babies drift violently away

* (guitar 2 adds the part below, and then the second half of fill 2)
'til they see themselves in telescopes
Do you see yourself in me?
We're such crazy babies, little monkey
We're so f**ked up, you and me

Guitar 2 adds this over the verse
|-------------------|-----10------|----------------|-------10------|

|-------------------|-------------|----------------|---------------|


So why'd you come home to this faithless town
Where we make a lifetime commitment
to recovering the satellites
and all anybody really wants to know is...
when are you gonna come down

Bridge: (Guitars 1&2 continue to play A D)
She sees shooting stars and comet tails
She's got heaven in her eyes
She says I don't need to be an angel
But I'm nothing if I'm not this high

We only stay in orbit
For a moment of time
And then you're everybody's satellite
I wish that you were mine (Gtr. 2 only plays last half of fill 2)

So why'd you come home to this angel's town
Well it's a lifetime's decision
Recovering the satellites
and all anybody really knows for sure is...
that you're gonna come down


Outro:
Guitar 1 repeats A D, Guitar 2 plays this:
