this was figured from the live version on 1200 curfews. I've tabbed out the intro of the 
guitar, but unfortunately i haven't figured the solo. lyrics in "quotations" are amy's 
vocals when they are different from emily's

played in standard tuning, no capo.

Dm:  x00231
G:   320033
F:   x33211
C:   x32010
Am:  x02210

"this is a song by emily, this called language or the kiss"

        *C*                            *Am*

        *Dm*                            *F*              *G*

verse 1
             C                     Am
i donít know if it was real or in a dream

       Dm                                F       G
lately waking up iím not sure where iíve been

            C                               Am
there was a table set for six and five were there

           Dm                               F         G
i stood outside and kept my eyes upon that empty chair

there was steam on the windows from the kitchen
laughter like the language i once spoke with ease
but iím made mute by the virtue of decision
i choose most of your life goes on without me


Dm               F    G
oh the fear iíve known

              C                 Am
that i might reap the praise of strangers
     F            G
and end up on my own

    Dm                  F
and all iíve sown was a song
     G                (Dm)
but maybe i was wrong

verse 2

i said to you the one gift i'd adore
is a package of the next 10 years as they're unfolding
                    "package of the next 10 years unfolding"
but you told me if i had my way iíd be bored
and i knew enough to bless one of your scoldings

when we last talked we were lying on our backs
                                         "lying on our backs"
looking up at the sky we were looking through the ceiling
        "looking at the sky"  "looking through the ceiling"
i used to lie like that alone out on the driveway
i was trying to read the greek upon the stars the alphabet of feeling

chorus 2

oh i knew back then
it was a calling that said if joy then pain
the sound of the voice these years later
is still the same


verse 3 accapello

i am alone in a hotel room tonight
i squeeze the sky out but thereís not a star appears
begin my studies with this paper and this pencil
and iím working through the grammar of my fears

chorus 3
   oh mercy me what i won't give
"oh mercy save me"
to have the things that mean the most
not to be the things i'd miss
   the unforgiving choice still is
the language or the kiss
yes it is

thanks yall (obligatory)
