"Briefest Moment" by Bob Mould
from the album Silver Age, 2012

This is the first transcription I've submitted and I couldn't quite get the 
spacing of the chord changes right above the appropriate words.  
If you listen to the track and follow the chords provided, you'll get it.  The end 
of the first verse is the only tricky part.

B                                          E   (4x)
I was a small-town kid with no possessions
And I was bored beyond belief
I couldn't wait to get away from nowhere
I made a plan to finally leave (so I packed my)
B-B-B-B/ A-A/ F#-F#/ B-B-B-B/ D-D/ A-A
Bags and ran away I needed
B-B-B-B/ A-A/ F#-F#/ B-B-B-B/ D-D/ A-A
Something more to take away this pain

B                                          E   (4x)
I found the medicine tucked in your locker
I picked the lock and grabbed the pills
I found a friend and then we went
And then we went, and then we went
We swallowed all of them up on the trestle

F / G / B   (3X)
I heard a melody so pure
I felt an echo that was so familiar
I left my misery behind (if only for)
G / A / B
Briefest moment of time

B / E (4X)
You lost your balance as I tried to grab you
And then you slipped right through my hands
I don't remember how I made it out alive
But there you went and here I am

Guitar Bridge:  
F / G  /B (3X)
G / A / B  

F / G  /B (3X)
I keep the guilt out on display
It's my memorial to mark the day
If I could fall for you, but I can’t undo the
G / A / B
Briefest moment of time

Repeat (G / A / B) to the end.

This is awesome!!! I LOVE this song and haven't been able to work the chords out myself, as I am still relatively new to playing the guitar. This really helps me out a lot!! Now I have this to work from! Thanks again! Looking forward to seeing more from you!
