Verse 2

basically the same as verse 1 except for this before the chorus

The rest of the song is basically the same thing. Sorry how im so lazy.

There you go. Listen to the song to figure out how many times to play the main riff in 
places. Thats as clear as i could make it. use guitar pro or powertab if u have to. Peace.
