Thoughtless Jolly - Made Of Glass tab

Help us improve GuitareTab! Take a short survey!
I worked this out ages ago, recorded my own version of it too.
it's a great song.

anyways it's extremely easy to play
I can't remember if it's played half a step down or not as I don't have my guitar 
with me right now. I think it might be.
but no capo.

chords that are picked throughout about 90% of the song are as follows:
it's simple to work out the picking method.

(Riff set 1)

e-x  e-x  e-x
B-3  B-3  B-3
G-0  G-0  G-0
D-x  D-x  D-x
A-x  A-x  A-3
E-3  E-0  E-x

pick these chords for this part:

Theres a kite caught in a tree
not far from here. It reminds me
of you and me and our desperate
love. Cause I cant fly when you
smother me, but Ill just fall to
the ground without you, and our
desperate love. 

right, now he mixes it up a bit, well, slightly.
it goes like this for the next section of lyrics.

(Riff set 2)

e----3-|      e----3-|      e----3-|
B-----3|      B-----3|      B-----3|
G------|\     G------|\     G------|\
D------|--x4  D------|--x4  D------|--x4
A------|/     A------|/     A-3-3--|/
E-3-3--|      E-0-0--|      E------|

You were the
saddest song, that I could sing.
You were a broken bridge dropping
a thousand feet. Youre my reason
to try be everything. You were a
starving child, on a TV screen.
You were the ship beneath a storm
mounting. Youre the broken hands
on a pianist. 

he plays a little bridge before going back to the first set of picked chords. it goes like this.

'Youre lost....'

(lets call this RIFF SET 3)


then back to Riff set 1 for these lyrics:

'And theres a boy made of glass who
stays out the rain cause hell
slip and hell fall and hell
break and then hell be gone. But
theres a girl made of concrete
who holds his hand. She knows just
want he wants, what he needs so he
wont go smash under her. 

Riff set 2 for the following:

Youre the only place, I really belong.
Youre the line I scream in my favourite song. 
Youre a mistake I made, that I wont admit was one.
Youre a boiling day led out in the sun.
When were all happy, and we love everyone. You bring me
to think of what Ill become cause Im scared.

okay, this next bit was the only part that gave me hassle working it out.
but it's really easy. goes like this.
Note: it's easier to pick this part with your fingers first in the Am
postition then into the Dsus2 position for the second part.

Note +:



anyways, cracking on, the middle 8 goes like this for the following lyrics:
it's mostly adapted by me, but it's simple enough to figure out how he plays it.

e------------|      e-0-----2-----0------|
B-1---1p0---0|      B----3-----3-----3---|
G--------2-0-|\     G--------------------|
D---------2--|--x2  D-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0|
A-0-0-0------|/     A--------------------|
E------------|      E--------------------|

'You just seem to know
me so well. And I cant remember
anything before, you came around.
Its a joke to say Id ever been
as happy but I am now. And you
just seem to know me so well.'

Riff set 1:

'You were beautiful when you fell
asleep, then youd sit up awake
and youd talk to me. Tell me
everything's going to be okay and
well heal. You were a screaming
mess on a hospital bed. You were a
violent night thats ended in
death. You were a 100 feet of
emptiness ---'

'--- below.' 
it changes again here ever so slightly.
it goes to D before the strumming comes in.
note: this part is plucked.


there's a pull off on the D aswell, which you should be able to work out yourself.

right, for the last part, He strums these chords over again.

Am, G, Emsus2, D.



You're an accident in a roadside stare.
You're a statue in a broken monument.
          Emsus2                                 D 
You're a microphone picking up everything that I say.
You're a little girl, trapped in an old deep well. 
Youre a time long ago, when I could still
really feel like I was, still alive
when I could still feel your hands on my skin. 
Youre the cruellest thoughts, that I could never tell.
Youre the waving hands of my hardest farewell.
          Emsus2                       D
Youre a daydream I wont ever wake from.
Everything I hate, I love,I need.
