Patrick Wolf - Magic Position chords version 1

Chords
Transpose
Hello boys 'n' girls.
Alright this is my first tab ever so don't be pissed if it sucks...

Last night I noticed how very few P.W. tabs there were. So I raged and broke stuff...
when I realized that I'd have to write down the chords myself. My goal is to have every
(and probably every EP) by Wolf tabbed. So The Magic Position gets the privilege to be 
first one, even though it's not the best... But it's still fucking awesome :D.

Please note that many of the songs on this album were already tabbed. I've gone through
tabs, and used the correct ones here. I'm going to give links to the original tabs as well.

The Magic Position.
1.	Overture
2.	The Magic Position
3.	Accident & Emergency - Ben Hillier Mix
4.	The Bluebell
5.	Bluebells
6.	Magpie
7.	The Kiss *
8.	Augustine
9.	Secret Garden *
10.	Get Lost
11.	Enchanted
12.	The Stars
13.	Finale *

*=These songs are instrumental only. Most is played on laptop or violin, so there will
no chords for these songs.

Please note that I've written this mainly for guitar, piano and ukulele. If you're
ukulele, please tune it G - C - E - A.

Also if you're playing the ukulele, don't own a capo or don't have a transpose button on
piano, there will be transposed versions of Augustine and Magpie after the last song.

1.	Overture
Perfect for beginners! The same riff goes through the whole song.
[Main Riff] Dm - F - C - G

It's wonderful what a smile can hide
If the teeth shine right and it's nice and wide
It's so magical what you can keep inside
And if you bury it deep no one can find a thing, n
So come on now, open wide, open up now.
Don't you think i's time
To look back at that boy on his way to school
Such a heavy heart, such a heavy jewel
Hiding something that one day he'll sell
But now if no one shows, no one tells a thing, no
So come on love, open wide, open up now
Don't you think it's time
Now after all these years, you are at last opening
Was it worth all that war, just to win?
So caught up in the speed of the days in your sin
Don't forget how the story begins no
Don't forget now
Now I'm seeing all your lovers and enemies
They've been turning their keys so full of need
All trying to see that jewel you keep
What makes it shine, what makes it mine?
But I don't care
Just come on now, open wide
Open up now
There's so much love for what you'll find
But what will you find?
Now after all these years, you are at last opening
Was it worth all that war, just to win?
If it was, can you take me back to where it begins?
Come and take me back to where it begins
Come and take me back to where it begins
Come on, open wide and let some light in
Let us in
Let us in

FDown in the park
AmIn the last of the light
F GAmong the stray dogs and families
F AmI smell the bonfires, and watch the bombs
F GFireworks burst above the trees
FInto pillows of white cloud, and
AmAnother year has gone
F GNow it is the fifth of November
FI lock the doors, and
AmSwallow the key
F GmAnd draw the curtains, closed forever
GForever
----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5. Bluebells (Most taken from http://www.911tabs.com/link/?4434460) (Listen to song. These 4 Cs goes throughout the whole song. For the intro you can play those notes, or just start with F - Am - F - Am - F - Am - F - G, like in the If choose the C - C - C - C just play the root of the Cs, and do not actually play the chord) Intro: C - C - C - C x16
F Am Lucy, remember
F Am The smell of that fall
F Am The fires of fungus
GAnd the rotting leaves
F Am I fell off the wagon
F Am Into your arms
F Am G Into this long month of sundays
Verse2:
F Am And you were my husband
F Am My wife, my heroin
F Am G Now this is our final December
F Am Now I'm deep in a forest
F Am Losing all thought of spring
F Am G And nothing can help me remember
Chorus:
F AmAnd I'm going nowhere fast
F AmA darker day has holed at last
F Am GDeep in a dream I set the calmness to spinning
F AmAnd your love has come too late
F AmAway from the garden gate
F Am GWake me up when the blue bells are ringing
Verse3:
F Am F Am Now that it's over after all that we had
F Am G It comes, A river runs through the rafters down, down, down
F Am F Am Does it leave me sleeping? Dreaming only of spring
F Am G The phone rings out and I remember
Chorus:
F AmBut I'm going nowhere fast
F AmA darker day has holed at last
F Am GDeep in this dream I set the calmness to spinning
F AmAnd your love has come too late
F AmNow wave to the garden gate
F Am GWake me up when the blue bells are ringing
F Am F Am F AmRinging, ringing, ringing...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6. Magpie (Most taken from http://www.911tabs.com/link/?6442354. Though I rearranged the chords). Tuning: Standard, with Capo on 1st fret PLAY EVERYTHING IN RESPECT TO THE CAPO ON THE 1ST FRET

Also, use G barred on the 3rd fret Intro: Strum these chords once (this song sounds even better when fingerpicked) F | G7 | Am | Am F | G | Am | Am Arpeggiating the first four notes of the chords will make it sound like the piano: e.g.
Play twice under violin scale:e|--------------------------------|-------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------|-------------------------------------|G|-------2-------2-------2------2-|-------0------0------0------0-----o--|D|-----3-------3-------3------3---|-----3------3------3------3-------o--|A|---3-------3-------3------3-----|---3------3------3------3------------|E|-1-------1-------1------1-------|-1------1------1------1--------------|

Em G CAs the bell tower blocks the summer light

Em G CAs comes the long arm of the law
Em G CFist tight, banging on the door
Em D C B C
DAnd knocking me down on its way in
Em G CAs I pass out into a dream
Em G COf whooping cranes and wooden beams

Singing

Em G CAnd that's why, love, you shouldn't stay
Em D CStill you will and love me
B CLike a mother or a maid bringing you down,
Em G CDown, Down on your brazen knees
Em G CWatering the worms and the weeds
Em D C BThinking, why does love leave me so damn cold?

Em G CAs it comes clear, this is all we got
Em D CAs I hold you to my bed
B CLike a cancer, or a curse
DNow be my loving nurse
Em D C EmAs we fall back into the impossible dream
----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 10. Get Lost *If you want to play the annoying tone that the song starts with just play the root of a 16 times. You can also end each C - F - G - F Progression with a quick "G-F" to make it sound more the actual song.
C - F - G - F x2Get lost...
C FWe could go to the cinema
C FBig effects and big name stars
C FAnd we could go to that private view
G (F)But darling, these days, my favourite view is you
C F C FLet's just bin the invitations
C FLeave our bikes down at the station
GLose all sense of direction
(F)With only time to lose
C F G FCome on and run, come, get lost with me
C F G FSlip away discreetly
C FIf you're my love, then come
G F C F G FRun away with me till we run on empty
NOW!
C FWe could stay here till closing time
C FBut the drinks are flat, and the price is a crime
C FAnd we could dance till our feet turn red
G (F) CBut the beat's so boring and I'd rather be home in our bed
F CThis town is skipping like a record
F CAnd reruns get me so bored
F GSo with the nothing I can afford
(F)And only time to lose
C F G FCome on and run, come, get lost with me
C F G FSlip away discreetly
C FIf you're my love, then come

F G C-F-CEnchanted, enchanted
F GThis magical place that we've found
F GNo one here but us and the sound
F GOf the stars and the night owls
C-F-CYour breath and the rolling clouds
F G C-F-CEnchanted, I am, by you
F GNow love has come to me
C-F-CAnd set apart thee
F GFrom all of the maddening crowds
F GThe orchard is leaning her bows
F GTo hear our laughter
C-F-CAnd we roll in the arder
F G CEnchanted, i am, by you
----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 12. The Stars *One "riff", or progression, is used in a big part of the song. Listen to song, and understand how and when to play it. I'll just call it [Main riff] in the tab. If you it hard you can just play Am7. In the beginning of the song there's a cute little melody, is repeated quite a lot in the song. I've tried to replace that little melody with F - Am - F - Am progression. If you find the main riff hard, you can replace it with the - Am - F - Am Progression. Please note that this song was extremely hard to tab, since there are loads of sounds melodies going on at the same time. These chords can be used to get a very simple acoustic of the song, but don't expect it to sound just like the original) Main riff: Am-Am7, Am-Am7, Am-Asus-Am.
