                great song, very rare, and that's too ad because it's one of my favorites.

i used to play this song with a capo on 2, and play F, G, and Am, but
damien definitely plays it as I'm about to tab, and it sounds better the way
he does it. note* that this tab sounds good, but sometimes mimics his voice,
and therefore might not be exactly what he's playing.

put a capo on 7.

relative to the capo:
(verse chords:)
Em: 07500
D: 054030
C: 032010
(note: C and D here i have tabbed, for the sake of simplicity, with the first finger.
they could be, instead, like the Eskimo chords, without the first finger. it doesn't really
matter.)

(chorus chords:)
G: 320033
D*: 200033
D**: 200232
D: 054030
C*: (3)32033
C: 032010
Em*: 022032
(note: until the last two lines of the chorus, he barely plays the top 2-3 strings at all,
emphasizing the bottom three strings, the changing notes.)



(verse:)
Em   D    C
Take your hand 
       (D)  Em  D  C (D)
Off me
Em D  C
Understand
       (D)  Em  D  C (D)
Nothing
Em D      C
I needed you 
       (D)  Em (place/pull 7 on top E string)  D  C (D)
Yesterday
Em D      C
I need to move
                       (D)  Em  D  C
But you're in my way 
(You're in my way, in my way)


(chorus:)
                      G
It feels like you're walking out
       D*              C*
You're walking out on me
           G
My body is breaking down
          D*                C*
It's just breaking down on me
                     G    D** Em*
It feels like you're walk-ing out
    C   D
On me


(interlude 1: use verse chords)
Em  D  C  (D)
Em  D  C 


(verse:)
Take your mind
Off me
You will find
Nothing
I need a new
Yesterday
I need to move
But you're in my way


(chorus:)
It feels like you're walking out
You're walking out on me
My body is breaking down
It's just breaking down on me
It just feels like you're walk-ing out
On me

(interlude 2:)
Em  D  C  (D)    (over and over again, underneath a subtly changing electric guitar)
(when it stagnates, it's just Em with the note B pulled (to open A) and replaced)
Em  D  C  (D)    (faster)

(chorus:)
Like you're walking out
You're walking out on me
And my body's just breaking down
It's just breaking down on me
It just feels like you're walk-ing out
On me

(repeat verse chords for outro)


final note**
this is based off of the only live version to which i, and most people out there, have access. 
so obviously, if someone out there somehow has a different version, one i haven't heard,
it might not sync up perfectly. but this is the most common version of the song available.
