Comment: Great Band, great Album, great Song. I know this tab isn't 100% correct but
         I think it sounds very well, singing along the lyrics fits just perfect. ;-)

and when I see you
I really see you upside down
but my brain knows better
it picks you up and turns you around
turns you around
turns you around

if you feel discouraged
and there's a lack of color here
please don't worry lover
it's really bursting at the seams
from absorbing everything
the spectrum's a to z

this is fact not fiction
for the first time in years
and all the girls in every girlie magazine
can't make me feel any less alone
I'm reaching for the (phone)

now, they start to play chords, starting on "...phone":

    Bb   H07 Cm Bb                                             
e |---------(3)----------------------------------| 
b |-3-3--3---4--3--------------------------------| 
G |-3-3--1---5--3--------------------------------|
D |-3-3--3---5--3--------------------------------| 
A |-1-1--2---3--1--------------------------------| 
E#|----------------------------------------------|


(I'm reaching for the) phone
to call at 7:03
and on your machine I slur a plea
for you to come home
but I know it's to late
and I should have given you a reason to stay
given you a reason to stay (x3)


then play the intro again and add the verse one more time:


this is fact not fiction 
for the first time in years
