Bass parts

in the song, there are many parts where the bass plays the main riff.
it is basically the same riff with a slight variation.

A |-0-----0-----0---0-------0---0---0-----0-----0----0---0--|

notations:

part A:
-------
i'm pretty sure that this is the chorus

A |-----| G |-----| D |-----| B |-----| 
  |-----|   |-----|   |-----|   |-----|
  |-----|   |-----|   |--7--|   |--4--|
  |--7--|   |--5--|   |--7--|   |--4--| (the B could be a C-chord)
  |--7--|   |--5--|   |--5--|   |--2--|
  |--5--|   |--3--|   |-----|   |-----|

the chorus pretty much goes like that A-G-D-B progression

*************************************************************************
there is an outro solo at the end of the song somewhere around
4 minutes into the song (give or take 20 seconds), i don't have
time to figure it out, however, if you would like to write you own
little solo for it (like i have) the below notes will work just really
good for a solo.  If you do it right, it could sound really great. 
The notes are in no particular order, just from high to low, work with
it see what happens.
 
E |---------------------------------------------------------|
B |---------------------------------------------------------|
G |---------------------------------------------------------|
D |------------------0--2--4--6--7--9--11--14--16--18--19---|

p.s. the notes in the parenthesis, i don't use 'em, it sounds 
better if you don't but if you want to go ahead

lyrics:
-------

well the satelite comes and goes
we give each other all we know
in silence we still walk
by the light of the stereo waltz
and will you rain down
in your cinematic love truck
i want to hold you like nothing's going stop us
she come to take me away
it's all that i needed
i don't breathe another lover
flicker on the t.v. screen
everything's more than it seems
the mighty backward fall
stare at the lights on the wall
i swear to this
she felt like velvet
second blonde child she meant it
she come to take me away
it's all that i needed
i don't breathe another lover
i'm an alien
you're and alien
it's a beautiful rain
beautiful rain
beautiful rain
