I Listened to the cd and to some live recordings and it appears to me that Graeme basically improvised the verse riffs.So I've tabbed the first 4 riffs plus a little fill between riff 2 and 3 before the vocals begin.You can improvise or work out the rest for yourself

F#5                                              G5
Way out there in the wilderness,Of love and pain
F#5                                             G5
Under the gentle arches we rode,The silver streets
A5                                                           G5
Couldn`t see a difference between gold or,Wooden cross
A5                                                    G5
Could never see where we`re falling,Came in to love

CHORUS

            C#5                 B5
Then hounded by love,Hounded by the very thing you dreamed up
                           D5                                                                   F#5   
Chased inside the walls you tried to breach,Sent crashing to your knees
      C#5                   B5
Only tender love,Understood the need you need with
                         D5                                                            F#5       
Understood the time it took,To take you where nothing ever was

Chorus end riff = F#5 (ddd)  E5 (d ) C#5 (d)      C#5 (udud)   F#5 (d  dd)    E5 (d)

 

Never was there once nothing
And everything once was
Not dead but still and ready to be born a new
Looking back now it all
Seems so clear
Like staring so long unseeing for someone to light inside a
Darkened room

Then try your tender love
Push you back till there`s nowhere left
Nowhere to feel nothing anymore

Nothing that will comfort you more
More than tender love
Understands the need you need with
Understand the time it takes to get home and have a love again

More than tender love
Understands the need you need with
Understand the time it takes
To get home and have a love

Then try your tender love
Push it till there`s nothing left
Nowhere to feel nothing anymore
Nothing that will comfort you more

Then hounded by love
Hounded by the very thing you dreamed up
Chased inside the walls you tried to breach
Sent crashing to your knees

Then only tender love
Understood the need you need with
Understood the time it took
To take you where nothing ever was
