I quite like this one. The riffs remind be a bit of Nigel and Gavin's riffs off Golden State.
Solid, easy song, you can decorate with a few 7's and 2's here and there to give it a fuller sound.

[Opening]
(Riff 1)

[Verse 1]
         F#m              A
You’re a shooting star
      Bm             D
We’re in your constellation
          F#m             A
No matter where you are
    Bm          D
You know we are waiting
        F#m               A
Soon we come for you

While everyone is sleeping

Gonna take you through

The gift is in the giving    (Riff 1 comes in)

  F#m               A               Bm
Inside of you with all your lies
D           F#m
Nettles and vines
A           Bm      D
Nettles and vines


[Pre-Chorus 1]
Bm7        A          F#m
Shadows fall on these broken days
     Bm7        A
If I wait for you
F#m
I'm your slave, I'm your slave


[Chorus 1]
D          Bm
  I give I bleed
         F#m
I try it again

But I could never remember

D            Bm
  We fell so hard
         F#m
Onto the ground
                         D 
But we never surrender       (Riff 2 comes in)

[Verse 2]
           F#m            A
I know the enemy
           Bm           D
I know the one I keep inside
       F#m                A
It’s a feeling
Bm         D
Help us to survive
          F#m             A
See my fingers
Bm       D
See my bones
         F#m              A
I walk a thousand miles
     Bm       D
On a chemical road           (Riff 1 comes in)

Inside of you with all my lies

A           Bm      D
Nettles and vines

You look so good

As my slave, as my slave

  To be born again

  Take it back to the start
