___________________________ / Antony and the Johnsons / This song is absolutely mystical and / Spiralling / fascinating. You don't really understand the / I Am a Bird Now / lyrics and still it feels like, it's about Antony /__________________________/ mourning how hard it is to be him. The blurry lyrics just intensifies the feeling of him being an outsider in a particular bizarre way. Chordwise, the playing with the 2nds of the chords is very important. There's no pattern to it, so it makes more sense to explain it outside the chord scheme. The key is A major. (C# major in the intro.) When playing A, C#m, F#m and D, Antony often adds the 2nd note; respectively to the chords those are the notes B, D#, G# and E. Adding it denominates the chord (add2), and if also leaving out the 3rd, the chord is named sus2. I could have painted (add2) and sus2 all over the scheme, but it's better if you choose where to do it yourself :) Devendra Banhart intro: | F# | F# | C# | C# | | F# | F# | C# | C# | Verse: | A | A | C#m | C#m | | D | C#m | F#m | B D/A | | A -sus4 | A | Verse Chorus: | A | A | C#m | C#m | | A | A | C#m | | D | D | A | A | | D | D | A | A | Verse 2x Chorus (cut the last A, the first time) Outro: | A | A | C#m | C#m | | A | A | C#m | C#m | | A | A | C#m | C#m | | A | A | C#m7 ...
