Rachael Yamagata - Elephants chords version 1

Capo on 3rd fret

GIf the elephants have past lives
C2Yet are destined to always remember
Em7Itís no wonder how they scream
C2Like you and I, they must have some temper
Am7And Iím dreaming of them on the plains
GDirtying up their beds
Am7Watching for some sign of rain
GTo cool their hot heads
Em7And how dare that you send me that card
G C2When Iím doing all that I can do
G Em7You are forcing me to remember
C2 D Em When all I want is to just forget you
GIf the tiger shall protect her young
C2Then tell me how did you slip by
Em7All my instincts have failed me for once
C2I must have somehow slept the whole night
Am7And Iím dreaming of them with their kill
GTearing it all apart
Am7Blood dripping from their lips
GTeeth sinking into heart
Em7And how dare that you say you will call
G C2When you know I need some peace of mind
G Em7If you had to take sides with the animals
C2 D EmWonít you do it with one who is kind
Instrumental: D Am D
GIf the hawks in the trees need the dead
C2If youíre living, you donít stand a chance
Em7 For a time though you share the same bed
C2There are only two ends to this dance
Am7You can flee with your wounds just in time
GOr lie there as he feeds
Am7Watching yourself ripped to shreds
GLaughing as you bleed
Em7So for those of you falling in love
G C2Keep it kind, keep it good, keep it right
G Em7Throw yourself in the midst of danger
C2 D EmBut keep one eye open at night
