Bright Eyes - Hit The Switch chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a copy of the previous tab, just transposed to capo on fret 2. This makes easier 
the chord previously labeled, "F#/F." With capo 2, one just has to play an Em chord (at 
the start of the 'chorus') and drop his or her finger on the D string 1 fret (to fret 1).


So it goes from Em (022000) to Em/D# (021000) <--possibly wrong name of chord. But just 
drop a 1 finger 1 fret and it will give you the tonal clash.


G
I'm staring out into that vaccum again

G/B
From the back porch of my mind

Am
The only thing thats alive

             D
I'm all there is

G
And I start attacking my vodka, stab the ice with my straw

                    G/B
My eyes have turned red as stoplights, you seem ready to walk

              Am
You know I'll call you eventually, when I wanna talk

                 D
'Til then you're invisible.

Em                              Em/D#(see note above) Am      
     D
'Cause theres a switch that gets hit and it all stops making sense

Em                  Em/D#              Am           D
And in the middle of drinks, maybe the fifth or the sixth

Em            Em/D#        Am
I'm completely alone at a table of friends

D                               D
I feel nothing for them. I feel nothing, nothing

Interlude:

G, D, Am, D
G, D, Am, D
Em, Em/D#, Am, D

G
Well, I need a break from the city again

              G/B
I think I'll ship myself back west

        Am                                 D
I got a friend there, she says, "hey, any time."



G
Unless that offers expired, I have been less than frequent

            G/B
she's under no obligation to indulge every whim

            Am
And I'm so ungrateful, I take, she gives and forgives

               D
And I keep forgetting it



Em                  Em/D#        Am          D
And each morning she wakes with a dream to describe

Em                  Em/D#            Am        D
Something lovely that bloomed in her beautiful mind

       Em             Em/D#        Am
I said "I'll trade you one for two nightmares of mine

D                               D
I have some where I die, I have some where we all die."



Interlude:
G, D, Am, D
G, D, Am, D
Em, Em/D#, Am, D


Loud Part: Not sure on this part.

Goes from F#m to G#m at the end of the loud part.



G
I'm thinking of quitting drinking again

G/B
I know i said that a couple times

                Am                               D
And I'm always changing my mind, well, i guess i am

                G
But theres this burn in my stomach and theres this pain in my side

           G/B
And when I kneel at the toilet

                                   Am
And the mornings clean light pours in through the window
Sometimes I pray I don't die

              D
I'm a goddamn hypocrite


Em                 Em/D#             Am            D
But the night rolls around and it all starts making sense

            Em          Em/D#          Am          D
There is no right way or wrong way, you just have to live

         Em       Em/D#      Am
And so I do what I do and at least I exist

           D
What could mean more than this?

          D
What would mean more?
Mean more?



Interlude:
G, D, Am, D
G, D, Am, D

Em, Em/D#, Am

Ending finger picking, play around on this chord:

x20200  It's essentially G Am.

That's sort of it.
