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

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

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

but life is a slippery slope
Regret is the steepest hill

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

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
