Bright Eyes - Loose Leaves chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is my very first guitar tab and I've been playing for about a year now. Anyway, it 
sounds right to me. The ending sounds a bit off, though. Enjoy!






"Loose Leaves" by Bright Eyes

C
The story is in the soil

F            G
Loose leaves cover the ground

C                               F            G
There are volumes in the forest no one reads out loud

Em                                                     G
If I could take them down off of that mountain shelf...we used to climb but
no one tries to go up that far now


C                                 F            G
Yeah, we're all too busy working, entertaining ourselves

C                    F          G
40 hours, television and prescription pills

Em                                G
Well, I take two a day to make my brain behave
It never does but who is to say, at least my doctor gets paid


C                              F              G
So that is fine, yeah come by, we'll take the afternoon off

C                             F              G
We can kiss and undress or if you want just talk

Em                            G
'Cause I've got nothing real, just empty space to fill
And you are my girl, I like your style, just imagine all the time we could kill


F                      G                                Em
And time is not poison but once you drink it all you'll die

Em                              Am
So lets just sip it real slow, yeah, we can nurse it all night

                                   C
Try to believe that once it's gone they will pour another round
We will come back to life
We'll come right back


C                                   F               G
It's all moving fast now, yeah, and that's what they say

C                                   F               G
And though some days still take forever I can't disagree

Em                                               G
Because it seems to me that I wake up and sleep, look in the mirror and
have no idea what happened in between

C                                             F            G
But I remember counting days down until the year could be done

C                                            F             G
So I could scatter all my notebooks on the prep school lawn

Em                                              G
And disappear again into a summer's bliss of staying out and sleeping in
and getting drunk with my friends

C                                         F           G
And that's gone and I know that it won't ever come back
I accept

C                            F       G
I won't cling to what I had in the past

Em
but life is a slippery slope
Regret is the steepest hill

G
Hope for the best

Em                                    G
Plan for the worst and maybe wind up somewhere in the middle


F                                    G
And I'm not saying that I know what I want

Em                                    Am
But I know what I don't, don't want to rot in my room and never know what

C
could have been, believe what everyone else tells me is true

[Rest is C, I think]
They will say 'true'
That is what they'll say
That's it
Believe what everyone else tells me is true
They will say 'true'
That is what they'll say
That's it
