Snow Patrol - "Crack the Shutters" chords & lyrics

Following on from the huge success of "Take Back The City" ( see my previous post for chords & lyrics ), you can expect them to hit the heights again with their second single from "A Hundred Million Suns" - "Crack The Shutters".

Ashamed to say I still haven't made time to have a really good listen to the album, but I've been listening to "Shutters" on YouTube and have worked out my version of the chords and lyrics. If you're a beginner, some of the chords may sound and look tricky, but just follow the diagrams - the 'odd' chords are just variants of the C and FMaj7 which create little riffs, a little practice will see you right!

Anywaze, if you'd like to try your hand at playing this song on guitar, my interpretation is at the link below:
