me from the crumpled dark. Inky bruises punched into the sky by bolts of light and then leak across the body of tonight. While rain and thunder drop and roll, then stop short of a storm, leaves the air stuck with this waiting to be born. As I stand before an unresponsive automatic door, just another door that won't open for me anymore? The exit red gets brighter then blinks off, presses me into the crumpled dark.

I tried to make this as accurate as possible by ear, since I couldn't find any tabs for the damn thing. If anyone can work out John's song, 'The Last And' I would be very excited. Enjoy, Shaun. KEY: W = WHOLE NOTE H = 1/2 NOTE Q = 1/4 NOTE E = 1/8 NOTE S = 1/16 NOTE T = 1/32 NOTE . = ADD HALF OF ORIGINAL NOTE LENGTH ... = INDEFINITE NOTE L = TIED NOTE ^ = ROLLED CHORD
