"Briefest Moment" by Bob Mould ------------------------------ from the album Silver Age, 2012 This is the first transcription I've submitted and I couldn't quite get the spacing of the chord changes right above the appropriate words. If you listen to the track and follow the chords provided, you'll get it. The end of the first verse is the only tricky part. B E (4x) I was a small-town kid with no possessions And I was bored beyond belief I couldn't wait to get away from nowhere I made a plan to finally leave (so I packed my) B-B-B-B/ A-A/ F#-F#/ B-B-B-B/ D-D/ A-A Bags and ran away I needed B-B-B-B/ A-A/ F#-F#/ B-B-B-B/ D-D/ A-A Something more to take away this pain B E (4x) I found the medicine tucked in your locker I picked the lock and grabbed the pills I found a friend and then we went And then we went, and then we went We swallowed all of them up on the trestle F / G / B (3X) I heard a melody so pure I felt an echo that was so familiar I left my misery behind (if only for) G / A / B Briefest moment of time B / E (4X) You lost your balance as I tried to grab you And then you slipped right through my hands I don't remember how I made it out alive But there you went and here I am Guitar Bridge: F / G /B (3X) G / A / B F / G /B (3X) I keep the guilt out on display It's my memorial to mark the day If I could fall for you, but I canít undo the G / A / B Briefest moment of time Repeat (G / A / B) to the end.
