Love this tune.  For me, it's the emotional highlight of Goaths.

This tune was written for piano, so it plays fairly easily on piano but is a disaster on guitar.
The verse and chorus would be would be much simpler played with capo 1 and ignoring the chord
extensions (G F Em F G etc.) but the bridge is gonna be weird either way.

(Feel free to correct anything.  I'm *fairly* confident in *most* of it but a couple things are a little fishy.)
