Keeping Me Awake by Tarkio

Standard E Tuning
Capo 2nd Fret

Intro: E Emaj7 A x4
E         Emaj7         A
Summer it came, like a light across the highlands
E      Emaj7    A
And we laid it down
E          Emaj7          A
You wore a dress made of light from the islands
E            Emaj7        A
And we sent postcards home

E Emaj7 A x2

In dying light, this was not to be forgotten
As we are chosen few
Into the sea, with a touch as soft as cotton
Beneath this angel moon

Chorus
F#m                  B
It's been keeping me awake
E            Emaj7               A
Leaving this behind was my first mistake
F#m              B
And I'm not so strong
      E            Emaj7      A
To be satisfied by all the things I've done
F#m                     B
And the things I threw away...

E Emaj7 A x2

You wrote your name as we lay among the heather
Of what you left behind
Following past, that would lead us both together
And let us lose our minds

Chorus
F#m                  B
It's been keeping me awake
E            Emaj7               A
Leaving this behind was my first mistake
F#m              B
And I'm not so strong
      E            Emaj7      A
To be satisfied by all the things I've done
F#m                     B
Or the things I threw away...

E Emaj7 A x2

Summer it fell, and it coursed across the highlands
And so quickly gone
Your faded dress for years now tied away and silent
And as the nights lay low

Chorus
F#m                  B
It's been keeping me awake
E            Emaj7               A
Leaving this behind was my first mistake
F#m              B
And I'm not so strong
      E            Emaj7      A
To be satisfied by all the things I've done
F#m                     B
Or the things I threw away...
E            Emaj7      A
                 The things I threw away
E            Emaj7      A
                 The things I threw away
E            Emaj7      A
                 The things I threw away
(end on E)
