Tuning: Standard.

So this is a work in progress, I started it today because i just cant find any full tabs 
the song and i want to keep it
posted as i work on it in the hope that if anyone has any corrections or any of the 
parts we can can combine and
hopefully come up with a complete version of this epic song!

Theres a keyboard, a piano, two guitars, a bass, a percussionist, a drummer, various  
instruments and at least
three sets of vocals on the track..so going to need all the help i can get to try and 
a complete and finished version please!!

Part 1,
What if this storm ends?

Chords the whole way through this first part:
       Gm              F               C              A#sus2
|-------3--------------1---------------3--------------1-----------------|
|-------3--------------1---------------5--------------1-----------------|
|-------3--------------2---------------5--------------3-----------------|
|-------5--------------3---------------5--------------3-----------------|
|-------5--------------3---------------3--------------1-----------------|
|-------3--------------1------------------------------------------------|

There is also a lead bit that goes like:

|------------------------------------------------|
|---15------11-----13----------------------------|
|-------------------------8/10-------------------|  x4
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|

Part 2,
The Sunlight through the flags.

This bit is repeated through out the section:
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|--13--11------13--11------13--11------13--11---------|
|----------11----------11----------11----------11-----|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|

Another lead comes in over it on keyboard but I just havent got that yet.

The chords:
       E5  X8       Eb aug5 X4         C#5  X4
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|------9----------------8----------------6--------|
|------9----------------9----------------6--------|
|------7----------------6----------------4--------|
|-------------------------------------------------|

Another lead bit:

Repeat as necessary:
|---12--9----------12--9--------------------------|
|----------12--(9)--------12--(9)-----------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|

I dont have the distorted guitar yet either.

Part 3,
Daybreak.

Chords: (repeat through the whole section)
       D X16                     G X16
|------3--------------------------3----------------|
|------2--------------------------3----------------|
|------3--------------------------0----------------|
|------0--------------------------0----------------|
|---------------------------------2----------------|
|---------------------------------3----------------|

I suppose you could fingerpick it to make it more mellow like the track?
Something like:

|----x---------x---------x---------x--------------|
|------x---------x---------x---------x------------|
|--------x---------x---------x---------x----------|   X2 for the D chord
|-x----------x---------x---------x----------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|

|---x---------x----------x----------x-------------|
|-------x---------x----------x----------x---------|
|-----x---------x----------x----------x-----------|   X2 for the G chord
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-x---------x----------x----------x---------------|

Then at 11:50 or "somethin was bound to right sometime today" come in on a
second guitar with the D, E and G power chords:
           D5 X14  E5 X2    G5 X16
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|-----------7------9-------------------------------|  X4
|-----------7------9---------5---------------------|
|-----------5------7---------5---------------------|
|----------------------------3---------------------|

           D5 X16      G5 X16
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-----------7-------------------------------------|  X4
|-----------7---------------5---------------------|
|-----------5---------------5---------------------|
|---------------------------3---------------------|

Then back to:
           D5 X14  E5 X2    G5 X16
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|-----------7------9-------------------------------|  till finish.
|-----------7------9---------5---------------------|
|-----------5------7---------5---------------------|
|----------------------------3---------------------|

About the artist behind The Lightning Strike Tab:

Snow Patrol is an Irish band which formed in Dundee, Scotland, with the majority of their members being from Bangor and Belfast, Northern Ireland. They are based in Glasgow and are signed to Polydor Records. Originally formed as an indie rock band, Snow Patrol have sought a more alternative rock and powerpop sound in recent years on the heels of mainstream success with the songs "Run", "Chasing Cars" and "Signal Fire" from the Spider-Man 3 soundtrack.

The band's first three records, including their first EP, (Starfighter Pilot, Songs for Polarbears, When It's All Over We Still Have to Clear Up) were commercially unsuccessful and were released with an independent record label. When the band moved to a major record label Polydor Records they released their album Final Straw which crossed 4x platinum sales in the UK.[4] The band received worldwide success thanks to the album Eyes Open which sold 4.7 million copies worldwide. Snow Patrol has been nominated for 3 BRIT Awards and has won five Meteors. Worldwide, the band has sold over 7 million albums.[5]
