So hey this is a more "strum savvy" version of the song for you if you like playing 
pretty much the same idea as the real thing...

Capo 2



    

Standard Tuning

Verse

   C#m     B/D#  E/A       F#m       A/E

e|--0-------0-----0---------0---------0------|
B|--0-------0-----0---------0---------0------|
G|--4-------4-----1---------2---------6------|
D|--2-------4-----2---------4---------7------|
A|--4-------6-----0---------4---------7------|
E|--0-------0-----x---------0---------0------|



    

Chorus
      E     E/F#      B      A2/E

e|----0------0--------0--------0-------------|
B|----0------0--------0--------0-------------|
G|----1------1--------4--------2-------------|
D|----2------2--------4--------2-------------|
A|----2------x--------2--------0-------------|
E|----0------2--------0--------0-------------|

That's pretty much what you're looking at, as far as strumming and timing actually goes, 
you can see the B/D# and E/A are closer together, and as you could've guessed those two 
squeezed together take up about as much time as any of the other chords in the verse do.....

And for strumming just give the low E a little tap with your pick or finger before 
the any of the whole chords (save the B/D# and E/A)...

Listen to the CD to get what I'm talking about.  If you don't have the CD I really don't 
what to tell you.

Anyways, have fun with this, feel free to jazz it up and serenade your groupies.

View Just Lyrics...

I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots, that my tongue is tied off
My brain's repeating if you've got an impulse, Let it out!
but they never make it past my mouth

(Bop ba) This is the sound of settling (Bop ba, bop ba)
(Bop ba) This is the sound of settling (Bop ba, bop ba)

Our youth is fleeting, old age is just around the bend and I can't wait to go gray
And I'll sit an wonder of every love that could have been
If I'd only thought of something charming to say

(Bop ba) This is the sound of settling (Bop ba, bop ba)
(Bop ba) This is the sound of settling (Bop ba, bop ba)

I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots
