For Verse 2, play the second part of the intro (where both guitars play) only guitar 2 
louder than in the intro. Play this 2 times

Interlude 2 is the same as Interlude 1.

Pre-Chorus: After the Sixteen D chords are finished, Dave and Pat kick in the fuzzy 
and play the following D chords..

G|-x|  G|-7|   Guitar 1 and 2 play these 8 more times Palm Muted
D|-0|  D|-7|
A|-0|  A|-5|
D|-0|  D|-0|

Guitar 1 and 2 play this together in sync with Taylor's drums(i think it was Taylor.. 
too sure), Nate's bass and Dave's agressive lyrics.

G|---------------------| After the open D strings, Repeat from the
D|-4*--5*---2*--5*---0*| "February Stars" part, continuing until the
A|-4*--5*---2*--5*---0*| end where this is played:
D|-4*--5*---2*--5*---0*|

e|--------------------|
B|------------------3~|
G|--(16 times)------2~| And let this final chord ring trying to get as much
D|-5555555555555555-0~| feedback as possible. Beautiful song. One of my
A|-5555555555555555-0~| favourite songs EVER!
D|-5555555555555555-0~|

Lyrics:
Hanging on
here until I'm gone
just hanging on

Even though
I watched you come and go
how was I to know
You'd steal the show

One day I'll have enough to gamble
I'll wait to hear your final call
bet it all

Hanging on
here until I'm gone
right where I belong
just hanging on

Even though
I pass this time alone
somewhere so unknown
it heals the soul

You ask for walls I'll build them higher
we'll lie in shadows of them all
I'd stand but they're much too tall
and i fall

February Stars
floating in the dark
temporary scars
February Stars

About the artist behind February Stars:

Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995.[1] Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group. Goldsmith and Smear left after the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997). They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group's third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).

Chris Shiflett joined as the band's second guitarist after the completion of There is Nothing Left to Lose. The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007. Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys.
