5. It's Beginning to Get to Me Its Beginning To Get To Me Chords by Snow Patrol, www.Ultimate-Guitar.Com Tabbed by Ben McConnell Standard Tuning I tabbed this for Acoustic Guitar. I may be off on a few chords. It's hard to tell what band was doing, since this song they use a lot of bass. Chords Used: E A D E I want something E That's purer than the water E Like we were E A It's not there now A E Ineloquence and anger E Are all we have E A Like Saturn's rings A E An icy loop around me E Too hard to hold E A Lash out first A E At all the things we don't like E Or understand E And it's beginning to get to me E A That I know more of the stars and sea A Than I do of what's in your head E Barely touching in our cold bed E Are you beginning to get my point E They're always fighting with aching joints E A It's doing nothing but tire us out A E No one knows what this fight's about E The answer phone A E The lonely sound of your voice E Frozen in time E I only need A E The compass that you gave me E To guide me on E And it's beginning to get to me D That I know more of the stars and sea A Than I do of what's in your head E Barely touching in our cold bed D Are you beginning to get my point A They're always fighting with aching joints A It's doing nothing but tire us out E No one knows what this fight's about D It's so thrilling but also wrong A Don't have to prove that you are so strong A Cos I can carry you on my back E After our enemies attack D I tried to tell you before I left A But I was screaming under my breath E You are the only thing that makes sense E Just ignore all this present tense Strum E chord loudly E We need to feel breathless with love E And not collapse under its weight E I'm gasping for the air to fill E My lungs with everything I've lost E We need to feel breathless with love E And not collapse under its weight E I'm gasping for the air to fill E My lungs with everything I've lost END ON E 6. You Could Be Happy Capo 3 D 1 bar A 1 bar G 2bars x4 D A G You could be happy and I won't know D A G But you weren't happy the day I watched you go D A G And all the things that I wish I had not said D A G Are played on lips 'til it's madness in my head Em D G Is it too late to remind you how we were? Em D G But not our last days of silent, screaming blur Em D G Most of what I remember makes me sure D A G I should have stopped you from walking out the door D A G You could be happy, I hope you are D A G You made me happier than I'd been by far D A G Somehow everything I own smells of you D A G And for the tiniest moment it's all not true Em D G Do the things that you always wanted to Em D G Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do Em D G More than anything I want to see you go D A G Take a glorious bite out of the whole world 7. Make This Go On Forever Capo 4 Verse 1 A C Please don't let this turn into something it's not G F I can only give you everything I've got A C I can't be as sorry as you think I should G F but I still love you more than anyone else could A C All that I keep thinking throughout this whole flight G F Is 'it could take my whole damn life to make this right' A C This splintered mast I'm holding on won't save me long G F Because I know fine well that what I did was wrong Chorus Am C F G The last girl in the last reason to make this last for as long as I could Am C F G First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything Am C F The weight of water, the way you taught me to look past everything I had G ever learned Am C F G The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love Verse 2 A C We have got through so much worse than this before G F What's so different this time that you can't ignore? A C You say it is much more than just my last mistake G F And we should spend some time apart for both our sakes Chorus x2 Piano Solo A Outro A And I don't know where to look A My words just break and melt A Please just save me from this darkness A Please just save me from this darkness 8. Set Fire to the Third Bar Bm A G x2 Bm A G I find the map and draw a straight line Bm A G Over rivers, farms, and state lines Bm A G The distance from me to where you'd be Bm A G It's only finger-lengths that I see Bm A G I touch the place where I'd find your face Bm A G My fingers in creases of distant dark places Bm A G I hang my coat up in the first bar Bm A G There is no peace that I've felt so far Bm A G The laughter penetrates my silence Bm A G As drunken men find flaws in science Bm A G Their words mostly noises Bm A G Ghosts with just voices Bm A G Your words in my memory Bm A G Are like music to me Bm D I'm miles from where you are, A G I lay down on the cold ground Bm D I pray that something picks me up A Cadd9 And sets me down in your warm arms Bm A G After I have travelled so far Bm A G We'd set the fire to the third bar Bm A G We'd share each other like an island Bm A G Until exhausted, close our eyelids Bm A G And dreaming pink wildfire Bm A G The last place we left off Bm A G Your soft skin is weeping Bm A G A joy you can't keep it Bm D I'm miles from where you are, A G I lay down on the cold ground Bm D And I pray that something picks me up A Cadd9 and sets me down in your warm arms Bm D I'm miles from where you are, A G I lay down on the cold ground Bm D I pray that something picks me up A Cadd9 and sets me down in your warm arms 9.
