    Split Lip/Chamberlain
      The Simple Life
*******************************

Tabbed by Strelnikov

Notes - This is an amazing band, one of the original
	emo bands, they sound a lot like 90s alt,
	possibly even grunge.  The emo-ness is in the
	lyrics and the voice, mostly.  This is their
	nice, quiet acoustic song... well, until the
	end.
      - They're known by both Split Lip, and Chamberlain
	but I'm submitting this under Split Lip because
	I prefer that name, and that's what it's under
	in my iTunes library.
      - Standard tuning
      - Since this is the first tab of them, here is their site

Lyrics- Hurt stays when the work is over We've stayed too long I'll save what memory lends me When these days are gone Built this house out of a fate driven dream \_ 2x And these walls aren't what they seemed / Guitar 2

Play twice after the previous part, and sing. For the second verse, only play once, and stop at the first note in the second to last measure, and let that note ring and fade.

Play this four times, singing, yelling really.
W |--3----------------||--3----------------||--0----------------| The fourth time, strum this chord, instead|--0----------------| of the last measure, once, and let it ring,|--2----------------| and that's the end.|--3----------------|
They throw in bass and drums on this part, too, it's the unexpected loud, angsty ending. It's really hard to hear the acoustic guitar through everything, so those chords are my best guess, play around with it and listen to the song. Lyrics- Dark streets carry me home now I've stayed too long We're brave men to sip the stars dry And leave sleep alone Hurt stays when the work is over We've stayed too long We're brave men to sip the stars dry And leave ourselves alone
