Yeah sure...
Code:
By Matthew O'Reilly.

Intro cont: E, Asus2, E, Asus2 

E         Asus2       E
Something is about to give
Asus2         E
I can feel it coming
Asus2                  E
I think I know what it means
Asus2             E
I'm not afraid to die
Asus2             E
I'm not afraid to live
Asus2        E
And when I'm flat on my back
Asus2                 E  Asus2
I hope to feel like I did

       A
'Cause hardness, it sets in
                 C#m
You need some protection
                A
The thinner the skin
E                 A
I want you to know
     C#m                  Aadd9 E
That you don't need me anymore
              A
I want you to know
               C#m                 Aadd9
You don't need anyone, anything at all

E5
Who's to say where the wind will take you
B5
Who's to know what it is will break you
A5
I don't know which way the wind will blow
E5
Who's to know when the time has come around
B5                     A5
Don't wanna see you cry
                               E
I know that this is not goodbye

Asus2, E, Asus2, E, Asus2, E, Asus2
   E                      Asus2
In summer I can taste the salt in the sea
          E                      Asus2
There's a kite blowing out of control on a breeze
  E                   Asus2
I wonder what's gonna happen to you
    E                           Asus2
You wonder what has happened to me

A, C#m, A

      E5 B5
I'm a man
          A5
I'm not a child
  E5      B5
A man who sees
    A5
The shadow behind your eyes

E5
Who's to say where the wind will take you
B5
Who's to know what it is will break you
A5
I don't know where the wind will blow
E5
Who's to know when the time has come around
B5                           A5
(I) don't want to see you cry
                            E
I know that this is not goodbye

Asus2, E, Asus2

      E
Did I waste it?
Asus2                  E
Not so much I couldn't taste it
Asus2          E
Life should be fragrant
Asus2          E
Rooftop to the basement
Asus2           E
The last of the rock stars
Asus2                  E
When hip-hop drove the big cars
Asus2                E
In the time when new media
Asus2        E
Was the big idea
Asus2             E
That was the big idea

Out: Asus2, E, Asus2, E

Chord Formations:

E      0-2-2-1-0-0
Asus2  x-0-2-2-0-0

what in the tab below is called "ambient guitar" i play this way:

E|-9/4-|
B|-----|
G|-9/4-|
D|-----|
A|-----|
E|-----|


anyway, here's another tab:

KITE
tabbed by Brandon Leniart (leniart@juno.com)

This is my favorite song off the new album, and probably one of Bono's
most personal songs to date, again perhaps about his marriage. U2 proves
they never lost their trademark huge sound with this album centerpiece in
E major.

(keyboard string intro)
1-------------------------------------------------------------------
2---7--9----7--10---------------------------------------------------
3-------------------------------------------------------------------
4-----------------------------------------------4------------2------
5-----------------------------------------------------2-----------2-
6-------------------------------------------------------------------

(ambient guitar)
1--------
2---14\9-
3---14\9-
4--------
5--------
6--------

(verse)
E Esus4

(interlude)
A C#m A

(interlude lead guitar with delay)
1-------------------------------------------
2-------------------------------------------
3---9--8b9--8b9--8\6--- four times ---9/16-
4-------------------------------------------
5-------------------------------------------
6-------------------------------------------

(prechorus)
E A C#m E
1---0---5---9------7---
2---0---5---9------9---
3---1---6---9------9---
4---2---7---11-----9---
5---2---7---11---------
6---0---5---9----------

(prechorus lead guitar)
1----------------------------------------
2----------------------------------------
3----------------------------------------
4----------------------------------------
5----------------------------------------
6---0---2/4/5-------5/7/9-------9/11/12--

(chorus with Bono belting out in true Bono Vox fashion)
E B A A
1-----------5---7-
2---9---4---5---5-
3---9---4---6---6-
4---9---4---7---7-
5---7---2---7---7-
6-----------5---5-

(solo)
1--7/9--11b12r11--9\7--7\5---5------7/9--11b12r11--9\7--7\4---2/4---2\0-
2-----------------------------------------------------------------------
3-----------------------------------------------------------------------
4-----------------------------------------------------------------------
5-----------------------------------------------------------------------
6-----------------------------------------------------------------------

(post solo with Edge adding several improvisations to the chorus chords)
E B A
1-------7---5-
2---9---7---5-
3---9---8---6-
4---9---9---7-
5---7---9---7-
6-------7---5-

(outro...not a note-for-note tab but a rough guide)
1------------------------------------------------------------------
2------------------------9-------------------------------------10--
3--------------9---------------------------------------9-----------
4---9h11------------9-----------------------9h11-----------9-------
5------------------------------------------------------------------
6------------------------------------------------------------------

1----------------------------
2--------------------9-------
3---9h11-------------------9-
4----------------------------
5----------------------------
6----------------------------
