			     Rilo Kiley - Dreamworld
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well i love this song and haven't seen correct versions on the net at this point.  So i 
to do it myself.
   Didn't take too long.  May be a note off beat here or there but i remain confident 
it is
   accurate enough to get you on your way if you wanna learn the song.

Noteworthy: the rhythms chords i put out can be done one of two ways when you are 
with one or two guitars.

Rhythm figure 1a is how i play it when i'm jamming with the recording.
i find it sounds more plentiful than figure 1b.
rhythm figure 1b is alot more simple and sounds just as good.
in fact i think the rhythm in the recording is a combination of both at different points 
the song.
listen to the recording and decide for yourself.  Whichever figure you choose, is used 
the entire song.

Unofficial Lyric Sheet:

she was the girl with the string around her neck
with the boy who could only give her less
it could be more if she learned to never expect
and now she's her and him and then a baby.

Next,the wedding bells won't ring, but she could care less,
how you exist, when you're living in a dreamworld.

you're livin in a dreamworld
you're livin in a dreamworld
you're livin in a dreamworld

he grew up drinking milk from the cow, from the farm
he was the traders fathers, fathers, father
his father made him go give back to his country
he gave his both knees overseas to fight the disease

it's spreading fast over maps and it don't look back,
when you're living in a dreamworld

you're livin in a dreamworld
you're livin in a dreamworld
yeah you're livin in a dreamworld

it is a lie in science fiction waits, (???)
just like a journey to see on free time(???)
three times the size of the people that came before
me and you and what we'd do for money

this greed and jealousy turn to need
see, i'm a man with a plan to use my head

touch your nose, you're the girl who wanted more (???)
now baby, the story has faded from love to lie.

the clover under your feet is shooting stars in the night.
the people under your feet are shooting stars in the night.
the people, all that you meet, they're living in a dreamworld.

you're livin in a dreamworld
you're livin in a dreamworld
you're livin in a dreamworld
