You can actually play the tune and the chords at the same time if you're a bit creative!


Verse:

  Am       G     Am
I know the old patterns
          C    D5      Am
because I live by the sea,
                G         Am
and what I translate in water,
   C           G      Am
it won't come back to haunt me.
       G         Am
So cut another pattern to
        C        D5       Am
make a suitable friend of me,
             G        Am
and in your illumination
 C       G     Am
is your apology.


Pre-chorus:

C               G                    Am
What we keep of last night while we sleep.
C                    G                   D5
It's what we keep of last night while we sleep.


Chorus:

      Am          C                   G           D5
And I watch your grave be written all over your face,
       Am          C                 G             D5
on the longest day, when midnight tries to take my place.
               Am         C                   G         D5
As still as I watch your face be written all over your grave,
      Am                  C                   G                D5
It should have passed like hours, passed like years, felt like days.


Verse 2:

        Am    G       Am
And you live in the shadows
       C         D5    Am
of the evenings you mislead,
                        G       Am
but they're too real to be forgotten,
         c         G          Am
if you choose the right company.
                G                 Am
And I run each finger through the dust
          C            D        Am
and only through your hair in sleep
                               G          Am
but it's like the first breath in the morning,
        C           G          Am
and it brings the past back to me.


Pre-chorus:

C               G                    Am
What we keep of last night while we sleep.
     C                     G                   D5
It depends what we keep of last night while we sleep.


Chorus:

      Am          C                   G           D5
And I watch your grave be written all over your face,
       Am          C                  G             D5
on the longest day, I watch people fight to take my place.
               Am         C                   G         D5
As still as I watch your face be written all over your grave,
      Am                  C                   G               D5
It should have passed like years, passed like hours, lost in days.

And I watch your grave be written all over your face,
       Am          C                 G             D5

               Am         C                   G         D5
As still as I watch your face be written all over your grave,
      Am                  C                   G                    D5
What should have passed like hours, passed like years, passed like days.


Solo:

The solo isn't played on guitar (although neither is the main riff!) but I've tabbed it 
anyway for anyone interested:
