The Smith Street Band – Self Control chords
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 VerseD 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 awayBmHad to silence my addiction, my inherent invincibilityGBut 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 yearsChorusG DCome on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2Bm A GAnd I dont think that I could make anyone feel like thisD BmDont think I could make anyone feel like thisA DDont think I could make anyone feel this shitVerse TwoD BmMy formative years I got as drunk as anyoneGAnd 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 thisANever giving, always takingD BmThe issues that we let cloud our heads to distract ourselves from how fucked we truly areGPassion can be pointless if its all for passion sakeAThank everything I found else my life, woulda been a complete wasteChorusG DCome on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2Bm A GAnd I dont think that I could make anyone feel like thisD BmDont think that I could make anyone feel like thisA GDont think that I could make anyone feel this shitBridgeG D GThese dreams unfamiliar but sincere,D GLet myself disappear in the warmth of the back seatD GPress my knees into the fake sheepskinDTrying to pick who next to run away withBmCause Im killing my relationshipsGBut trying to keep a lid on itAI wont survive in happinessI want to be in love again ChorusG D A G A DCome on teach me self control, Come on tell we what to say x2Bm A GAnd I dont think that I could make anyone feel like thisD BmDont think I could make anyone feel like thisA DDont think I could make anyone feel this shit
