Death Cab For Cutie - I Was Once A Loyal Lover chords

      
 Hey World! Here is my interpretation of the chords in "I Was Once a Loyal Lover" by
Cab For Cutie off the Open Door EP. This is a song that all Death Cab fans should know how
play. I'm looking at the clock and it's 2:42am on a school night. I'm super tired but I 
couldn't sleep until I got this song out there ( Forgive me if I made a mistake, I'm
asleep right now.) Please contact me if you have any questions. Enjoy! -K.D.

(A, F#m, E, D, Bm, Dm, A* (played with the B string opened), D* (played with the Eopened))
A Will I have learned so very little
F#m D When these bones are old and brittle?
A I wait to talk when I should listen
F#m D And cloud mistakes with false revisions
A All my friends are forward-thinking
F#m D Getting hitched and quitting drinking
A And I can feel them pulling away
Fm D As I'm resigned to stay the same
F#m E A E Bm And you can't even begin to know
F#m E A E Bm Dm How many times I've told myself "I told you so"
(play A, F#m, D)
A I was once a loyal lover
F#m D Whose lips did never seek another's
A But now each love's more like a match
F#m D A blinding spark that burns out fast
A And they all conclude with the same sentence:
F#m D " I've never met someone more self-centered
A Who thinks that life with a nice girl's like
F#m D Waiting for a bus to work"
F#m E A E Bm And you can't even begin to know
F#m E A E Bm Dm How many times I've told myself "I told you so"
F#m E A E Bm And you can't even begin to believe
F#m E A E Bm Dm There's so many bridges engulfed in flames behind me
(play A, F#m, D) x2
F#m E If you deem it so
D* A* Just cut the cord and go
F#m E You'll be fine
D* E There's plenty of hills to climb
(play A, F#m, D) x2
F#m E A Bm You can't even begin to know
F#m E A E Bm Dm How many times I've told myself "I told you so"
F#m E A Bm And you can't even begin to believe
F#m E A E Bm Dm There's so many bridges engulfed in flames behind me
(x2)
