Introduction.

B, B, B, B, B, B, B, B, D, A.

First Verse.

B
Not one motion of her gesture could I forget
                                 D
The prettiest bag lady I ever met
A           B
Pushing her cart in the rain

Then gathering plastic and glass

She watched the day pass
               D
Not hour by hour
A               B
But pain by pain

If I was a basket filled with holes

Then she was the sand I tried to hold
                    D
And ran out behind me
          A                        
As I swung with some invisible hands

D                                    A
I stopped believing, you start to move
D                                           A
I stopped my leaving and the better man bloomed

First Chorus.
B, E, A (D if you want)  x4

Second Verse.
B
If you're still looking for a blanket

Sweetie, I'm sorry, I'm no sort of fabric
                       D
But if you need a tailor
A              B
Then take your torn shirt, and stumble up my stairs

And mumble your pitiful prayers
                                  D         A                     B    
And in your tangled, knotted sleep, our midnight needles go to work

Until all comfort and fear flows in one river
                                                           D
Down on the shelf by the mirror where you see yourself whole
A                    
And it makes you shiver

D                                    A
I stopped believing, you start to move
D                                           A
I stopped my leaving and the better man bloomed

Second Chorus.
B, E, A (D if you want)  x8

Ending.
E, E, E, E, E, E, feedback  x4
E, E, E, E, E, E, A, A, B   x6
E, E, E, E, E, E, A
E, E, E, E, E, E!

mewithoutYou's is, in my opinion, the best Muslim alt band. 
This song's been out since 04, and there still weren't any
chords for it online, so here you go. A tab would be better
for certain parts of this song, but I didn't feel like going 
like ------------------- for 20 min, so you're just going to
have to deal with this. If you have any corrections, just make
your own tab, don't email me, unless you know any other good
Sufi bands, in which case, email away!
