Tuning: E A D G B eb

Legend

	p    - pull off
	/    - slide up
	\    - slide Down
	( )  - let ring
	


PLEASE NOTE:


This is not the actual song, i just came up with this version to play acoustically
because I was asked to play it at a party, and since my guitar isnt cut away its 
near impossible to play.


Its not 100% note perfect to the song, but its easy to sing along with.
Any corrections/variations welcome.


Tune high E string flat for effect!


***UPDATE***

You can now hear a quick recorded version of this song, i typically play it slower
than the original

Verse:



   I'm coming out of my cage And I've been doing just fine
   Gotta gotta gotta be down Because I want it all
   It started out with a kiss, How did it end up like this
   It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
   Now I'm falling asleep, And she's calling a cab
   While he's having a smoke, And she's taking a drag
   Now they're going to bed, And my stomach is sick
   And it's all in my head, But she's touching his

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr Brightside

New Version in Eb: By Lester Tiu



This is an adaptation of my tab in Eb tuning by Lester Tiu, it has some different
ideas on how the song could be adapted for acoustic guitar such as the chorus. He's
done a good job, I hope you all find this useful too:
