Death Cab For Cutie - Lightness chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is based on the acoustic tab for Lightness that's already on the site (which 
I would highly recommend you check out).
It's just a chorded version for those of us not adept at picking and playing.

Standard Tuning, No Capo

Verse 1

  F                     G                      Am
There's a tear in the fabric of your favorite dress

                    C
And I'm sneaking glances.

  F                            G
Looking for the patterns in static

                     Am
They start to make sense 

                   C
The longer I'm at it.


Chorus


  F     G     
Ivory lines lead

      Am         C
Oh wha-ho, oh wha-ho


Interlude


Em  F  C x2


Verse 2


  F               G                         Am
Your heart is a river that flows from your chest

                C
Through every organ.

  F                G
Your brain is the dam

              Am
And I am the fish

                     C 
Who can't reach the core.


Chorus


  F           G
Ivory lines lead
 
     Am         C
Oh wha-ho, oh wha-ho


 Em     F           C
Oh, instincts are misleading

 Em             F                  C 
You shouldn't think what you're feeling

 Em                   F
They don't tell you what

 C 
You know you should want


Repeat


 F      G
Ivory lines lead

     Am          C
Oh wha-ho, oh wha-ho


 F      G     
Ivory lines lead
 
     Am         C
Oh wha-ho, oh wha-ho


 Em     F             C
Oh, instincts are misleading

 Em             F                 C
You shouldn't think what you're feeling

 Em                   F
They don't tell you what

 C 
You know you should want


Ending

 
  F     G
Ivory lines lead

     Am 
Oh wha-ho, 

 F      G
Ivory lines lead
 
     Am 
Oh wha-ho,
