Take Back The Instant
Good City For Dreamers

Tabbed By Josh Mulla

Capo 1

E,  G,  C,  Bb, C#

E                                 G
  Take back the instant, when you brushed him off your shirt
  You tried to drag him to the trash
Bb                       C#
  You tried to trade him in for cash

E                                 G
  Take back the instant, when you blew him off your path
  With a kiss reading 20 below zero
Bb                 C#
  Tomorrow is a no-go, a no-go

E                            G
  Cold cold moment, when the first doubt shot through your head
A black ink drip running through your veins
      Bb                   C#
Start ___________________  bringing you sweet pain

E                   G
  Pregnant seconds, dripping through the hour glass
When the lure of men who could be kings
         Bb                    C#
Made you lose the man, who was wearing your ring

  He didn't match your lucious thoughts tonight
  You couldn't look him in the eye
C                                   Bb         C#
  Awkward is the embrace, when it's not tight,
Not tight

  And so the jewel you once both had
Is left crumpled, like a collapsed lung
C                             Bb                   C#                
  When all you had to do, was hang out in the sun,
                E     G     C     Bb    C#
Hang out in the sun

E                                 G
  Sir you feel so dignified, your watch is very ornate
But you were just born into the right place
Bb                 C#
Just born into the right race

E                                    G
  You're climbing mount everest now, granting wishes from above
  Favours are yours to give
Bb                     C#
Lies are yours to live

E                              G
  Take back the instants, that lead you to believe
That the earth shakes cos youre not happy
        Bb                      C#
And the sun rises cos youre not sleeping

  Youve got the loudest parade in town
Clowns assasins and crooks
You got ladies in see-through gowns
Bb               C#
Reading extracts from your books

  Beggars are trailing at the back
  Waving from the cardboard float
  Youre thinking that up close
Bb                C#
Statistics can be such a drag

E                       G
  Your cup is full now, blood is the colour of this wine
And its dripping from the ceiling
And its making the chandeliers ring
And the instant the ballroom over flows,
Asus2                            E      G      C      Bb   C#
     Your throats turn into your gallows

This is a great song performed by a fantastic band.
Im sure all of this (with the exception of the A sustained 2) is correct!
