The Airborne Toxic Event – The Graveyard Near The House chords ver. 4
The Graveyard near the house - The Airborne Toxic Event Capo 3 Intro: C G C FC GThe other day, when we were walking by the graveyard near the house,C FYou asked me if I thought we would ever die.C GAnd if life and love both fade so predictably,C FWe've made ourselves a kind of predictable life.C GAnd so I pictured us like corpses, lying side by side in pieces,C FIn some dark and lonely blood under a bow.C GWe looked so silly there, all decomposed, half turned to dust,C FIn tattered clothes, but we probably look just as silly now.C GBye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence.C FI can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next,COr how to be.C F Em G C EmBut you have no idea about me, do you?C GAnd it left me to wonder if people will ever know each otherC FBy just stumbling around like strangers in the dark.C 'Cause sometimes you seem so strange to me,GI must seem strange to you.C FWe're like two actors playing our parts.C Did you memorize your lines? 'Cause I did.GHere's the part where I get so mad,C FI tell you I can't forget the past.C You get so quiet now, and you seem, somehow,GLike a lost and lonely child.C FAnd you just hope that the moment won't last.C GBye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence.C FI can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next,COr how to be.C F Em G CBut you have no idea about me.C F Em G C EmYou have no idea about me, do you?C EmSo there's always a way around.C EmThere's something tying our feet to the ground,FA moment passed, we hate how it sounds.C F Em G CAnd it seems a little less profound,C F Em G CLike we're all going the same way down.C F Em G CYeah we're all going the same way down,C F Em G CI'm just trying to write it all down.C G'Cause I write songs, and you write letters,C GWe are tied like two, in tethers.C G C GAnd we talk and read, and laugh and sleep, at night in bed, together.C GAnd you wake in tears sometimes,C GI can see the thoughts flash across your eyes.C GThey say "Darling, will you be kind?C G FWill you be a good man, and stay behind if I get old?"Am GAnd then the letters all pass through my head,Em G CWith the words that I was told,Am G Em G CAbout the fading flesh of life and love, the failures of the bold.Am G Em G CI can list each crippling fear like I'm reading from a will.C F Em G CAnd I'll defy everyone and love you still,C F Em G CI will carry you with me up every hill.Am G Em G CAnd if you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky,Am G Em G CI'll fall asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie.C GIt may be better to move on, and to let life just carry on,CAnd I may be wrong.FBut still, I'll try.Am G Em G C'Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die,Am G Em G CYeah, It's better to love whether you win or lose or die.Am G Em G CIt's better to love, and I will love you 'til I die.It's a beautiful song, hope you like the chords!
