Bright Eyes – Loose Leaves tab

Capo on 2nd Fret

The story is in the soil
Loose leaves cover the ground
There are volumes in the forest
No one reads out loud

If I could take them down
Off of that mountain shelf

We used to climb but no one tries
To go up that far now

Yeah, we're all too busy working
Entertaining ourselves
40 hours, television
And prescription pills

Well, I take two a day
To make my brain behave

It never does, but who's to say?
At least my doctor gets paid

So that is fine, yeah, come by
We'll take the afternoon off
We can kiss and undress
Or if you want just talk

Because I have 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

D                  E
And time is not poison
A                                 Fm
But once you drink it all, you'll die

So let's just sip it real slow, yeah
We can nurse it all night
Try to believe that once it's gone
They will pour another round
We will come back to life

*(Follow those chords throughout the song)*

It's all moving fast now, yeah
And that's what they say
And though some days still take forever
I can't disagree
Because it seems to me
That I wake up and sleep
Look in the mirror and have no idea
What happened in between
But I remember counting days down
Until the year could be done
So I could scatter all my notebooks
On the prep school lawn
And disappear into a summer's bliss
Of staying out and sleeping in
And getting drunk with my friends
And that's gone and I know
That it won't ever come back
I accept
I won't cling to what I had in the past
But life is a slippery slope
Regret is the steepest hill
Hope for the best
Plan for the worst
And maybe wind up somewhere in the middle
And I'm not saying that I know what I want
But I know what I don't
Don't want to rot in my room
And never know what could have been
Believe what everyone else tells me is true
They will say, "True"
That is what they'll say
That's it
Believe what everyone else tells me is true
They will say, "Ttrue"
That is what they'll say
That's it
