The chords above each diagram are the basic note the chord is set around, and if you choose to play just those chords instead of the tabbed version, it will sound similar and it will work as well. Strumming pattern is a simple chug, but again use video or audio for guidance if needed. Here are the lyrics with the chords in the appropriate places for guidance: E B I can't get to sleep D A I think about the implications E B Of diving in too deep D A And possibly the complications E B Especially at night D A I worry over situations E B I know will be alright D A Perhaps its just my imagination C#m Bsus B Day after day it reappears C#m Bsus B Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear G#sus4 G# Asus Ghosts appear and fade away Bsus B E B Alone between the sheets D A Only brings exasperation E B It's time to walk the streets D A Smell the desperation E B At least there's pretty lights D A And though there's little variation E B It nullifies the night D A from overkill C#m Bsus B Day after day it reappears C#m Bsus B Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear G#sus4 G# Asus Ghosts appear and fade away Bsus B Come back another day (The original version by Men At Work has a solo here but this acoustic version does not) E B I can't get to sleep D A I think about the implications E B Of diving in too deep D A And possibly the complications E B Especially at night D A I worry over situations E B I know will be alright D A It's just overkill C#m Bsus B Day after day it reappears C#m Bsus B Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear G#sus4 G# Asus Ghosts appear and fade away G#sus4 G# Asus Ghosts appear and fade away G#sus4 G# Asus Ghosts appear and fade away
