Streetlight Manifesto - Streetlight Medley chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
After I started learning songs by Streetlight Manifesto, I noticed that some songs 
have chord progressions that are similar... and sometimes the same. Not too long 
ago, I got the idea to put a medley together - Much like the infamous 
Point/Keasbey Nights/Counterpoint that every SM loves so much. Except this 
one isn't quite as epic, and it contains a few more songs. 5 to be exact. So, I put
one together last night containing 12341234, The Big Sleep, Supernothing, 
One Foot On the Gas, One Foot In the Grave, and Somewhere In the Between. 
This is a rough version, and I'm sure it could be better. These tabs are not my 
own, I got them from this site, though I did make a change here and there. If 
you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to email me - mattiewarunek@yahoo.com.


Streetlight Medley

Words and Music by Tomas Kalnoky

Arranged by Matt Warunek

--------------------

C
You, you try, you try to get by. 
        Am
"You're never going to pull it off", "You shouldn't even try" 
	  F
"You're a wet cigarette", "You're always second best", 
            G
but they're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves. 
C
 so you fight for them to realize; 
   	Am
there's more to life, there's more to you, there's more than meets the eye. 
F
And when you're done, the battle's been won. 
    G
You sit back, you smile and this is what you hum, you hum:

He wakes up sad again and he wonders when the rain will end,
C                        Am                            F                  G

C                  Am                           F
Iím a super, Iím a nothing, Iím a no one, goiní nowhere fast,

G                                 C
But I donít care, but I donít care,
                      Am                        F

         G                           C,Am,F,G
But I donít care, but I donít care.

   C
The years go by, the time it does fly. 
Am
Every single second is a moment in time that 
F
passes oh, so quick and it seems like nothing, 
    G
but when you're looking back, well it amounts to everything. 
     C
I've got myself. I've got my friends. 
     Am
I've got my little family, but that's not where it ends. 
     F
This one goes out to you, it goes out to everyone. 
     G
It's in the name of honesty because life has just begun. 


C                          F                          G                          C
Started with six or seven, moved on to eight or nine. What will you do when they come 
you?
C                        F                      G                          C
Nobody seemed to notice, nobody seemed to mind. What will you do when they come for you?
C                                      F              G                             C
Little miss demissed can't miss like a detuned radio. I cannot believe you when you tell 
what you know
C                                  F                       G                             
   C
And nothing will be broken if your house is made of stone. But you will know as I do it 
never be a home


Am          F            C                G
We want it, they got it. They claim we'll die without it
Am            F                 C  G
But something tells me they are wrong

                    F G


   C                          F                  G                   C
So what will you do when they call your name and you're not ready to go?
C             F                G                 C
Everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know
	    C                   F                     Am               G
That you're in too deep and you can't quite keep your secrets, one and all
   F          G             C           Am
We might just make it after all, on our own
   F          G             C           C
We might just make it after all
           F               G       C               Am
But we had one foot on the gas and one foot in the grave
C            F                G              C
Everyone was laughing when we said we had it made
C            F                G              G
Everyone was laughing when we said we had it made


C                          Am
All the times he said he would she never really understood,
F                        G                                    C
What he said, or what he meant, he won't forget what wasn't said,
C                             Am                 F       G
Heíll find himself alone standing in the rain, yeah, yeah, yeah,
C                            Am                                    F
Iím a super all or nothiní, Iím a no one, going nowhere fast,
                     G
But I donít care,
C                               Am                        F
Iím a super all or nothiní, Iím a no one, going nowhere fast,
                      G                        C Am F G
But I donít care, but I donít care.

          C                  G
Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
    Am
And everything else was part of the plan
   Dm       C          G
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
            C      G      Am                F
This is the alpha, omega, beginning and the end
       C        G           C
And we all just idolize the dead

            C                 G                     Am
So you were born (So you were born), and that was a good day
               Dm                  C                   G
Someday you'll die (Someday you'll die), and that is a shame
    C                G             Am                   F
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
    C                       G              C
And nothing and no one will ever take that away


C           G           Am
Me and Mr. Dylan on the ride home

F       C              G
We had a heart-to-heart about life

C                  G          Am        Em
But neither him or me could decide for ourselves

F               G
If we wanted to outlive that night

C                        G                  Am
Like two children on the playground of the unconfessed souls

F                C               G
Abandoned by our mothers and our lovers and our foes

C                G               Am              Em
If only we were brave enough to live the lives we stole

F                      G
What a wonderful world this could be!


C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na


C                 G         Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

F
I hope you think of me, yeah

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na


  C                   F              G                          C
So do the right thing or do nothing. What will you do when they come for you?
C                  F       G                          C
Or just do what is easier. What will you do when they come for you?
C                         F                      G                          C
That's what I read what I swear they said to me. Nine times out of ten they lied to me
C                          F                   G        G
And after all they had the guts to say Son, no one will save you now
Am          F            C                G
We want it, they got it. They claim we'll die without it
Am            F                 C  G
But something tells me they are wrong


  C            G          Am
So, how many more examples until we break?

   F          C            G
So how many sacrifices must we make?

C                            G
Because we've all been there once before

Am                       Em
And it looks like we've returned once more

F                        G
So is this the beginning or the end?

C                     G
The last two soldiers on the battlefield

Am
Survivors of the war

F                       C                   G
They aim at one another while their mothers beg the lord

            C             G
"If you're listening, I'm missing him

    Am               Em
So somehow bring him home.

F                   G
How did it come to this?"

C                            G
So the soldiers lift their rifles

Am
And they're aiming at the head

F                           C               G
They think of their first love before they take their final breath

C                     G                  Am                Em
And somewhere in the distance they hear something someone said:

F                    G
"How did it come to this?"

Outro Chorus

C                 G         Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

F
I hope you think of me, yeah.


          C                       G
Yeah, the times we had, they were not that bad
    Am
And everything else, that was part of the plan
       Dm       C          G
And we sang, "I don't know where we go from here"
            C               G               Am                F
This is the Alpha (Alpha!), Omega (Omega!), beginning and the end!
       C        G           C
And we all just idolize the dead

            C                 G                     Am
So you were born (So you were born), and that was a good day
               Dm                  C                   G
Someday you'll die (Someday you'll die), and that is a shame
    C                G             Am                   F
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
    C                       G              C
And nothing and no one will ever take that away


And someday soon my friends, this ride will come to an end

But we can't just get in line again.
