Streetlight Manifesto
Somewhere in the Between (acoustic AP show version)

gotta say i really love the way tom plays this song

standard tuning (EADGBe)



C E7 Am  Dm Am G
C E7 Am G F  C G C G

         C   E7
you were gone
        Am
when we found you
         Dm          Am                   G
you were practically surrounded, you were trapped
        C          E7           Am    G   F
but the opposition stalled, the blood ran cold
C                 G                    C   G
when they saw the look of love in your eye

          C                 E7
maybe the times we had they weren't that bad
    Am
and everything else was part of the plan
       Dm      C          G
and we sang "i don't know where we go"
         C          E7         A         G       F
from the alpha, the omega, the beginning and the end
       C        G           C    G
and we all just idolize the dead

            C   E7              Am
so you were born and that was a good day
    Dm             C                 G
and someday you'll die and that is a shame
         C                E7                    Am      G            F
yeah but somewhere in the between you'll live a life of which we all dream
    C                       G              C     G
and nothing and no-one will ever take that away


C E7 Am  Dm Am G
C E7 Am F C G C  G

          C
you had a love
C/B        Am7      G
  and that love had you
F             G#                C    G
  and nothing mattered you were fine
C       C/B                     Am7           G
some will complain they're just bitter what a shame
               F                    G#                     C
they know that loving and losing is better than nothing at all

           C                 E7
may-be the times we had they weren't that bad
    Am
and everything else was part of the plan
       Dm      Am         G
and we sang "i don't know where we go"
         C          E7         Am      G  F
from the anthem the slogan the summary of events
       C        G            C    G
and we all just idealize the past

            C   E7              Am
so you were born and that was a good day
    Dm               Am                G
and someday you will die and that is a shame
         C                E7                    Am      G            F
yeah but somewhere in the between you'll live a life of which we all dream
    C                       G              C
and nothing and no-one will ever take that away


C E7 Am  Dm Am G
C E7 Am F C G C  G

C                     E7         Am        G          F
yeah someday soon my friend this life will come to an end
        C         G           C     G   C
but we can't just get in line again


Notes:
*the whole song should be played at a slow-medium tempo -- take your time and enjoy the song.
*the introduction is highly stylized. tom puts lots of little fills between chord 
sequences. try some!
*tom plays a lick during the intro and several times in the song between chords Am
G and F that looks something like this:

   Am G  F
e|------------|
B|----------1-|
G|---2--0--2--|
D|--2--2--3---|
A|-0----------|
E|----3--1----|

basically it's just a walk down from the A to the F. not super difficult. kind of quick. 
maybe finger pick it?
*the second verse is played as follows:

  C / / C/B / / Am7 / / G / / F / / G# / / C / / G
|--------------------------------------------------|
|-1-----1-------1-------------1-----4------5-----3-|
|-0-----0-------0------0------2-----5------5-----4-|
|-2-----0------(2)-----0------3-----6------5-----5-|
|-3-----2-------0------2------3-----6------3-----5-|
|----------------------3------1-----4------3-----3-|

protip: add some panache. strum these chords with confidence and rhythm.
*the end is played kind of like this:

  C    G     C   (rit.)
|------------------|
|----------------1-|
|----0----------0--|
|---2-----0----2---|
|-3------2---3-----|
|------3-----------|

again just kind of a little walk uphill. not fast. take yr time. or change the end to 
suit yr own playing skill/style!
