Stuck In A Moment... the acoustic Vertigo version [REQUEST]

I'm not sure how I missed out on this song for so long, maybe it was my dislike of almost all things ATYCLB. But when I watched the Sao Paulo proshot, I just remembered how much I love that song - and especially the acoustic version.

Does anyone have any chords for it? Thanks in advance.

this is not my work, but don't know who to credit. have fun:

E G#m A G#m
I¹m not afraid of anything in this world
B C#m A E
There¹s nothing you can throw at me that I havent already heard
E G#m A G#m
I¹m just trying to find a decent melody
B C#m A E
A song that I can sing in my own company
C#m A F#m A
I never thought you were a fool But darling, look at you, oh
C#m A
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
C#m B
These tears are going nowhere, baby


E G#m A G#m
You¹ve got to get yourself together
B C#m A E
You¹ve got stuck in a moment and now you can¹t get out of it
E G#m A G#m
Dont say that later will be better
B C#m A E
now you¹re stuck in a moment and you can¹t get out of it


I will not forsake the colours that you bring
But the nights you filled with fireworks, they left you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I still listen though your ears and through your eyes I can see
And you are such a fool to worry like you do
I know its tough and you can never get enough
Of what you dont really need now... my oh my

You¹ve got to get yourself together
You¹ve got stuck in a moment and now you can¹t get out of it
Oh love, look at you now You¹ve got yourself
Stuck in a moment And you can¹t get out of it

F#m
I was unconscious, half asleep
A E
The water is warm till you discover how deep
F#m
I wasnt jumping, for me it was a fall
A B
Its a long way down to nothing at all

chorus1

And if the night runs over, and if the day wont last
And if your way should falter along the stony pass
And if the night runs over, and if the day wont last
And if your way should falter along the stony pass
Its just a moment, this time will pass

The chords above work fine for standard but the live acoustic version and the studio acoustic version with Bono and Edge is in open E tuning. I'll copy here what I posted back in November when they played on Conan:

Here are the chord shapes. I just finished watching the performance from Conan and they’re all correct except I’m not so sure about the G# towards the end of the song. Almost every time Edge plays that chord they cut to a shot that has the mic stand in front of his hand. I’ve offered two shapes (personally I think the full barred chord works better) but you can decide what sounds better to you. Any way, I don’t have time right now to put the chords to the lyrics but it’s pretty straight forward. If you know the song in standard tuning, it won’t take to long to replace these chord shapes. Feel free to take the chords and line them up to the lyrics.

Open E tuning: EBEG#BE
E open
Esus 020100
G#m 4X0300
A bar 5th fret
B bar 7th fret
Bsus 797877
C#m1 XX9899
F#m 2X2122
D bar 10th fret
G# (what I think Edge is playing) 2XX442
G# (what I think sounds better) bar the 4th fret
C#m2 454554

Verse: E G#m A G#m B C#m A E
Prechorus: C#m A F#m A C#m A C#m A C#m B Bsus
Chorus: E G#m A G#m B C#m A E
Bridge: F#m A E (hammer on Esus a few times) F#m A D B Bsus
Outro Chorus: E G#m A G#m B C#m A E
E G#m A G#m G# C#m A E

I'm fairly sure it's on MiniNova, if you search for it. I'm not sure if we can link to such things here.

Thanks for the chords guys, gives me something to work on! Though the second one seems really, really difficult. Still, , no pain no gain, eh?

Another way is to leave in standard tuning.But instead of playing the chords in there full barre chord format just slide up the E shape to the G# A B etc positions.

Though the tuning stated above is obvioulsy correct playing it the way I do gives it a nice "similar" sort of sound without re tuning.

The only thing with the way I play it is the D chord has to be barred as it doesnt sound right with the droning open strings.
It then jumps out as being a bit too bright for the song. Beggars cant be choosers tho.

Moving the E shape up the neck and playing the open strings is used a lot and I love the sound of it.

Zoo Tv version of stay is played this way

as Is High & Dry by Radiohead. Same chords as Stay but changed around a bit.

Early morning rain Gordon Lightfoot can be played that way too.
and Yellow by Coldplay to name a few.

Mess about with it. It is a great way of turning electric songs into accoustic tunes as those open strings really fill out the sound and totally change the way the song sounds.
