This is my very first guitar tab and I've been playing for about a year now. Anyway, it 
sounds right to me. The ending sounds a bit off, though. Enjoy!






"Loose Leaves" by Bright Eyes

CThe story is in the soil
F GLoose leaves cover the ground
C F GThere are volumes in the forest no one reads out loud
Em GIf I could take them down off of that mountain shelf...we used to climb but
no one tries to go up that far now
C F GYeah, we're all too busy working, entertaining ourselves
C F G40 hours, television and prescription pills
Em GWell, I take two a day to make my brain behave
It never does but who is to say, at least my doctor gets paid
C F GSo that is fine, yeah come by, we'll take the afternoon off
C F GWe can kiss and undress or if you want just talk
Em G'Cause I've got nothing real, just empty space to fill
And you are my girl, I like your style, just imagine all the time we could kill
F G EmAnd time is not poison but once you drink it all you'll die
Em AmSo lets just sip it real slow, yeah, we can nurse it all night
CTry to believe that once it's gone they will pour another round
We will come back to life We'll come right back
C F GIt's all moving fast now, yeah, and that's what they say
C F GAnd though some days still take forever I can't disagree
Em GBecause it seems to me that I wake up and sleep, look in the mirror and
have no idea what happened in between
C F GBut I remember counting days down until the year could be done
C F GSo I could scatter all my notebooks on the prep school lawn
Em GAnd disappear again into a summer's bliss of staying out and sleeping in
and getting drunk with my friends
C F GAnd that's gone and I know that it won't ever come back
I accept
C F GI won't cling to what I had in the past
Embut life is a slippery slope
Regret is the steepest hill
GHope for the best
Em GPlan for the worst and maybe wind up somewhere in the middle
F GAnd I'm not saying that I know what I want
Em AmBut I know what I don't, don't want to rot in my room and never know what
Ccould have been, believe what everyone else tells me is true
[Rest is C, I think] They will say 'true' That is what they'll say That's it Believe what everyone else tells me is true They will say 'true' That is what they'll say That's it ~Peace.
