Hey guys,

I put this together and figured I'd share it cause these guys are awesome and no where 
near popular enough.  I saw them live opening for Frank Turner a couple weeks ago and was 
blown away.

There's a three chord progression heading into the chorus that I have yet to sound out, 
if you've got it go ahead and share it.

These are the chords but most of the song is a picked variation of this, listen to 
figure out timing.

Also, the lyrics are as close as I could figure out, might not be 100% but it's close.

As for the chords, I think it sounds best using bar chords for Bm, G, A, and just a 
regular open D.

Edit: Wow never noticed how difficult they make it to format these, the chords are in 
the right order, just play along with the song.



First Verse

D BmThe night we said that we had won at life,
G AWe were high as fucking kites, above the city,
DNo ones ever looked as pretty as when you turned to walk away
BmHad to silence my addiction, my inherent invincibility
GBut we all learn from and yearn for what we had,
AIn the guts of the glory days,
D BmLook back and be nostalgic, to blanket our current fears,
G AI look death in the eye once a week, For a couple of years
Chorus
G DCome on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2
Bm A GAnd I dont think that I could make anyone feel like this
D BmDont think I could make anyone feel like this
A DDont think I could make anyone feel this shit
Verse Two
D BmMy formative years I got as drunk as anyone
GAnd I wonder how that will affect me,
ANow that those years have been and gone,
D BmMy stagnant half form, my mind malnourished and my bones near breaking,
GWhy does everyone come up like this
ANever giving, always taking
D BmThe issues that we let cloud our heads to distract ourselves from how fucked we truly are
GPassion can be pointless if it’s all for passion sake
AThank everything I found else my life, woulda been a complete waste
Chorus
G DCome on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2
Bm A GAnd I dont think that I could make anyone feel like this
D BmDont think that I could make anyone feel like this
A GDont think that I could make anyone feel this shit
Bridge
G D GThese dreams unfamiliar but sincere,
D GLet myself disappear in the warmth of the back seat
D GPress my knees into the fake sheepskin
DTrying to pick who next to run away with
BmCause Im killing my relationships
GBut trying to keep a lid on it
AI wont survive in happiness
I want to be in love again Chorus
G D A G A DCome on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2
Bm A GAnd I dont think that I could make anyone feel like this
D BmDont think I could make anyone feel like this
A DDont think I could make anyone feel this shit
