    Lyrics
    
    Verse 1
    Run and tell all of the angels
    This could take all night
    Think I need a devil to help me
    Get things right
    
    Hook me up a new revolution
    Cos this one is a lie
    We sat around laughing
    And watch the last one die
    
    Chorus
    I'm looking to the sky to save me
    Looking for a sign of life
    Looking for something help me burn out bright
    
    I'm looking for complications
    Looking cos I'm tired of lying  ('trying' in 2nd chorus)
    Make my way back home
    When I learn to fly (high)
    
    Verse 2
    Think I'm done nursing the patience
    I can wait one night
    I'd give it all away
    If you give me one last try
    
    We live happily ever trapped
    If you just save my life
    Run and tell the angels
    That everything is all right
    
    Chorus
    
    Bridge
    Fly along with me
    I can't quite make it alone
    Try to make this life my own
    (x2)
    
    Chorus

    Intro
    
    When Dave plays the chords live he usually just 
    plays the chord once each, over the lead guitar but on 
    the CD there is an arpeggio(see below) played pretty rough
    There is also distortion, but make sure you put A LOT of
    emphasis on the two high strings (B&E)
    
    This bit is in octaves..
    You have to mute the E with your second finger, 
    and D,B,e with your index finger
    
        B5       B/F#         E     B5       B/F#        E

    Verse
    
    Dave plays a nice little arpeggio thing that involves the three 
    intro chords. It also still has a bit of distortion.
    
        B5         B/F#           E          E
    E|--------2------------2----------0----------0---|

    A|-2---2------3------------2----------2----------|
    E|------------2-----2------0---0------0---0------|
    
    
    Chorus
    
    The Chorus is based around the verse and the arpeggio 
    with the same chords but it is much rougher and there 
    is more distortion.
    
    
    End Of Chorus
    
    (Play them fast so you get 8 in each time)
    G5                A5
    'Make my way back home when I learn to fly'
    
    Repeat Intro and Verse
    
    Second chorus
    
     G5               A5                       E5    F#5
    'Make my way back home when I learn to fly high' 
    
    Bridge
    
    Just play them like the chorus but really rough arpeggiating
    
      B5  G5              D5                    E
    'Fly along with me. I can't quite make it alone'
    
     G5               A5
    'Try to make this life my own'
    
    Chorus (twice)
    With 'Make my way back..... x3 at end of second time
    (Remember after each 'Make my way.....' Play an E as at
    the end of Chorus2)
