Radical Face - The Mute chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is probably one of my favourite songs from his new album, I love the story 
and emotion in these lyrics. So I thought I should tab this song for you guys.

I didn't really work out the intro with the finger picking because I wanted to 
play and sing along as quick as possible haha, so that's open for interpretation.

end of intro G G/F#

Em                        C               G         G/F#
Well, as a child I mostly spoke inside my head
Em                           C                     G        G/F#
I had conversations with the clouds, the dogs, the dead
Em                                  C                 G
And they thought my broken, that my tongue was coated lead
           D                C                   Em
But I just couldn't make my words make sense to them
            D                C                     G    G/F#      
If you only listen with your ears... I can't get in

Em                              C                G       G/F#
And I spent my evenings pullin' stars out of the sky
Em                          C                  G        G/F#
And I'd arrange them on the lawn where I would lie
Em                            C                 G
And in the wind I'd taste the dreams of distant lives
            D               C                   Em
And I would dress myself up in them through the night
         D                    C                           G
While my folks would sleep in separate beds... and wonder why

woo's (G/F#, Em, C, G, G/F#, Em, C, G, G/F#, Em, C, G, D, C, Em, D, C, D, G, G/F#

Em                            C             G      G/F#
And through them days I was a ghost atop my chair
Em                     C               G      G/F#
My dad considered me a cross he had to bear
Em                      C             G
And in my head I'd sing apologies and stare
      D                  C                  Em
As my mom would hang the clothes across the line
              D              C                 G     G/F#
And she would try to keep me empty... from her eyes

Em                       C              G       G/F#
So, then one afternoon I dressed myself alone
Em                          C            G      G/F#
I packed my pillowcase with everything I owned
Em                     C                    G
And in my head I said "goodbye," then I was gone
      D              C            Em
And I set out on the heels of the unknown
      D                  C                 Em
So my folks could have a new life of their own
        D             C
So that maybe I could find someone
          D             C              G
Who could hear the only words that I'd known

woo's (the same chords again but ending on a D)
