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 ~Peace.
