The Smith Street Band - Self Control chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey guys,

I put this together and figured I'd share it cause these guys are awesome and no where 
near popular enough.  I saw them live opening for Frank Turner a couple weeks ago and was 
blown away.

There's a three chord progression heading into the chorus that I have yet to sound out, 
if you've got it go ahead and share it.

These are the chords but most of the song is a picked variation of this, listen to 
figure out timing.

Also, the lyrics are as close as I could figure out, might not be 100% but it's close.

As for the chords, I think it sounds best using bar chords for Bm, G, A, and just a 
regular open D.

Edit: Wow never noticed how difficult they make it to format these, the chords are in 
the right order, just play along with the song.



First Verse

D                                     Bm
The night we said that we had won at life,

                        G                     A
We were high as fucking kites, above the city,

                                                           D
No ones ever looked as pretty as when you turned to walk away

                                             Bm
Had to silence my addiction, my inherent invincibility

                                             G
But we all learn from and yearn for what we had,

                              A
In the guts of the glory days,

                      D                               Bm
Look back and be nostalgic, to blanket our current fears,

                                G                       A
I look death in the eye once a week, For a couple of years



Chorus

G                                                       D
Come on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2

             Bm                       A                G
And I dont think that I could make anyone feel like this

                           D            Bm
Dont think I could make anyone feel like this

                           A                    D
Dont think I could make anyone feel this shit



Verse Two

D                                       Bm
My formative years I got as drunk as anyone

                                  G
And I wonder how that will affect me,

                                    A
Now that those years have been and gone,

                   D                                            Bm
My stagnant half form, my mind malnourished and my bones near breaking,

                       G
Why does everyone come up like this

                A
Never giving, always taking

                    D                                             Bm
The issues that we let cloud our heads to distract ourselves from how fucked we truly are


G
Passion can be pointless if itís all for passion sake
        A
Thank everything I found else my life, woulda been a complete waste



Chorus

G                                                       D
Come on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2

             Bm                        A              G
And I dont think that I could make anyone feel like this

                                 D              Bm
Dont think that I could make anyone feel like this

                                A               G
Dont think that I could make anyone feel this shit



Bridge

G                                   D         G
These dreams unfamiliar but sincere,

                                           D       G
Let myself disappear in the warmth of the back seat

                             D       G
Press my knees into the fake sheepskin

                                     D
Trying to pick who next to run away with

                              Bm
Cause Im killing my relationships

                            G
But trying to keep a lid on it

                      A
I wont survive in happiness


I want to be in love again



Chorus

G                        D A   G                         A  D
Come on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2

             Bm                       A               G
And I dont think that I could make anyone feel like this

                           D                    Bm
Dont think I could make anyone feel like this

                           A                    D
Dont think I could make anyone feel this shit
