(Same riff repeats throughout verse)

You've got eyes that can see right through me
You're not afraid of anything they've seen

I was told that I would feel
Nothing the first time
I don't know how these cuts heal
But in you I found a rhyme

[Verse]

You let me in to a conversation
A conversation only we could make
You break and enter my imagination
Whatever's in there it's yours to take

I was told that I would feel
Nothing the first time
You were slow to heal
But this could be the night

If there is a light you can't always see
And there is a world we can't always be
If there is a dark that we shouldn't doubt

Commentaires :

Well, Almost it´s pretty similar, just trythis intro:

----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
----4-------4----------------4--------4-------------
------7-------7-----7-----------7--------7-----7----
--0-------0-------0---0----0--------0-------0-----0-

and then the parts as above.



Hi,
Thank you for this great tab,
However there's a problem with the outro part 2. It's not the same as the intro. 

[Outro Part 2]

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---4-2---4-2---2---4-2---4-2---2-------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---------------------------------------------|
If there is a light... you can't always see

This part is accurate, but what follow isn't if you listen closely to the album or live version. Does anyone know what Edge actually plays here ?
