|-----2--------2-----------|--6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6-----|
|--4--------4--------4-----|--------------------------|
|--------------------------|--------------------------|


The guitars both repeat their parts, and the string section
adds these two measures over the E5 chord
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--6--7--|

The second time, guitar 2 plays this instead of the last measure,
and continues into the verse:
|---------------------------------------------------|-------|
|---------------------------------------------------|-------|
|---------------------------------------------------|-------|
|--6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)r6b(7)--|--2/4--|
|---------------------------------------------------|-------|

Verse: (chords played by organ)
D                      A             E
She comes to me at night when I'm sleeping
She comes to me when I'm alone
She comes to me    She holds my head when I'm crying
She comes to me    She shuts my eyes
She brings me home

Chorus:
Guitar 1 plays the same E5 A progression it did in the intro;
The string section plays the same thing it did in the intro;
Guitar 2 plays the same part it played in the intro, except that it
omits that first chord that swells up over the E5 chord, and it
replaces the last measure with:
|--4b(5)r4b(5)r4b(5)r4--|

E5                          A          E5
But I'm not sleeping anymore... anymore

Verse:
She tells me when you look at me   She tells me when you're lying
She tells me when you talk about me  She lays me on the floor
She tells me when you're whispering  She lies beside me naked
She tells me when you laugh at me and she locks all the doors

* (w/ Fill 1, played by gtr. 2, first time only)
But I'm not sleeping anymore

Instead of the last measure of the repeat of the chorus, the song
moves into the bridge:

   E5                         E5maj7
