           A Letter To Elise - The Cure, Wish 1992
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Lia chan
Email: lia@placeofthings.com

E/G# = 422100. You can replace it with a normal E, but it sounds fuller this way.
F#m = 244222. (Bar the 2nd fret and use fingers 3 and 4 on your 4th and 5th strings.)

Robert uses a 12-string acoustic guitar but this is for 6-string acoustic. I've 
never tried it on electric, but it should sound just as good.
Listen to the song for strumming patterns.
Don't cry at the lyrics and good luck:)
If I've made errors, please email me and tell me!

Intro: A, E, F#m, D- one bar (4 beats) of each until lyrics start.

Main Riff- A, E/G#, F#m, D
Riff 2: E, F#m
Riff 3: G, F#m

(D)  (A)                           (E/G#)
Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you say
                             (F#)
I just can't stay here every yesterday
                    (D)
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
(A)
Every way to smile
Forget
    (E/G#)
And make-believe we never needed
(F#m)
Any more than this
(D)
Any more than this

(same chord pattern):
Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you do
I know I'll never really get inside of you
To make your eyes catch fire
The way they should
The way the blue could pull me in
If they only would
If they only would
At least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else
That hides away
From me and you
There're worlds to part
With aching looks and breaking hearts
And all the prayers your hands can make
Oh I just take as much as you can throw
And then throw it all away
Oh I throw it all away
Like throwing faces at the sky
Like throwing arms round

(E)
Yesterday
I stood and stared
(F#m)
Wide-eyed in front of you
        (E)
And the face I saw looked back
          (F#m)
The way I wanted to
      (E)
But I just can't hold my tears away
(F#m)
The way you do
      (G)                    (F#m)
Elise believe I never wanted this
  (G)                                  (F#m)
I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises
   (G)                               (F#m)
I thought you were the girl I always dreamed about
    (G)
But I let the dream go
        (F#m)
And the promises broke
                          (E)
And the make-believe ran out...

During guitar solo:
E, F#m
E, F#m
E, F#m
E, D
A, E, F#m, D
A, E, F#m, D
A, E, F#m, D

(back to main riff)
So Elise
It doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
Every way to smile
Forget
And make-believe we never needed
Any more than this
Any more than this

And every time I try to pick it up
Like falling sand
As fast as I pick it up
It runs away through my clutching hands
But there's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else
I can really do
At all...
