Jason Mraz - Clock Watching tab

      
    _________________
   / Jason Mraz     /  Besides from being about premature ejaculation, I think
  / Clockwatching  /  this song is about a not taking the time to simply enjoy
 / Mr. A-Z        /  each other and instead being too dependent on your own
/________________/  rushing around all the time. The point is just to relax.

In this song there are the figure/riff and a couple of chords.
The verses include both the riff and then the chords of the riff, just
casually picked. So I'll just write like 2x Riff, then pick the chords,
which I just notate in common bars. All the used chords can be seen
right below. The chords in the chorus are just regularly strummed.
It's really not complicated :)

Chords: C D11(no7) Bmb6 G D Am7 Bbsus2 G/b Bb6sus2---0------0--------------3---2----0------1----- --------------------1------3--------3-----3---3----1------1----- ---3-------6--------0------0--------0-----0---2----0------3----- ---0-------5--------2------4--------4-----0---0----2------3----- ---0-------5--------3------5--------2-----2--------0------1----- ---2-------x------------------------------3--------------------- -----------6----- (The last two chords are used live. The G/b is played instead of the Bmb6 and the Bb6sus2 instead of the Bbsus2. I just thought I'd spice things up with some alternatives here ;)

Take off both your shoes and clothes, Iíll follow Undo corkscrew, drink from the half of a broken bottle Lately weíre running out of time, arenít we? Smoking often and calling out our guilty pleasures Letís keep talking Ė anything to stop clockwatching Lately weíre running out of time, arenít we? Crazy for running all the time, maybe Letís forget weíre running out of time Iím off like an aeroplane Iím licking your postage stamp again Iím using my right brain and Iím praying the weight will crash Who knew Iíd come/cum so fast Well, so what if a two pump chump canít last I finally made it to three, and I foreclose a five minute-fantasy. Iíll surely fight making love on economy No jumping conclusions I donít think thereís no solution Letís get backwards and forget our restless destination Letís live in this moment just this time, could we? Just take one moment of our time, maybe Letís forget weíre running out of time Iím off like an aeroplane Iím catching my second wind again Iím using my left brain and Iím righting all my wrongs Iím yearning to turn you on Iíve been working on getting you off, so get on board Well, how can I guess by the subject of the best predicate thatís left unsaid When the matter is too delicate, my loneliness is evident And itís you Youíre running through my mind and it makes me crazy La, la, la Ooh, so amazing Lady dreamer, you might be the soundest sleeper Tonight sleep tight and build your nest upon my shoulder - 9th /September /08 Just mail me at Maitinin@gmail.com with questions, comments and corrections!
