                            killing an arab

[Disclaimer:  This song is based on the book 'The Stranger'
by Albert Camus and is not meant to express anti-Arab sentiments.
The Cure has issued statements stating that they resent its
use as such.]

bass line but it's what is in the book.  Opinions, anyone?]:

Standing on the beach with a gun in my hand
Staring at the sea, staring at the sand
Staring down the barrel at the Arab on the ground
See his open mouth but I hear no sound

Chorus:
I'm alive [Bass part moves up to the A string]
I'm dead
I am the Stranger [Bass moves back down to low E string]
Killing an Arab

I can turn and walk away or I can fire the gun
Staring at the sky, staring at the sun
Whichever I choose it amounts to the same
Absolutely nothing
(Repeat chorus)

Feel the steel butt jump Smooth in my hand
Staring at the sea, staring at the sand
Staring at myself reflected in the eyes
Of the dead man on the beach
(Repeat chorus)

Here, I won't vouch for the timing on the second (7), and I can't
be bothered working it out fully.   btw, the ()'s me harmonic.

Back to the intro, with bass, and guitar on harmonics.

For the solo, the bit during the Am - G is:

e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
b -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
g -|--------7^^---7--5--------|--7-----5------------------|
d -|--------------------------|-----------7-----5--7------|
a -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
   |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |

repeat 2 times.


e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
b -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
g -|--------7^^------7--------|--5--------4---------------|
d -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
a -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
   |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |

Then with the F - Em bit, just go a little crazy, with lots
of heavy overdrive, and lots of use of the whammy bar.

The bass solo is this;

g -|--------7--------9--------|--10-------9--------10-----|
d -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
a -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
   |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |

g -|--------12-------10-------|--9--------10-------12-----|
d -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
a -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
   |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |

g -|--------14-------9--------|--10----9-----7-----5-----|-(7)-|
d -|--------------------------|--------------------------|-----|
a -|--------------------------|--------------------------|-----|
e -|--------------------------|--------------------------|-----|
   |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |  ^

repeat.

Then the harmonics return, but like this:

e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
b -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
g -|--------------------------|-(7)---------------(7)-----|
d -|-------(12)-----(7)-------|----------(7)--------------|
a -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
e -|--------------------------|---------------------------|
   |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  |

repeat, then end, with the bass doing a volume swell on a D.

10:15 Saturday night
And the tap drips under the striplight
And I'm sitting in the kitchen sink
And the tap drips: Drip drip drip drip drip drip...

Waiting for the telephone to ring
And I'm wondering where she's been
And I'm crying for yesterday
And the tap drips: Drip drip drip drip drip drip...

It's always the same...

I would say I'm sorry if I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time I have said too much, been too unkind

 C#m      Bm             C#m                    Bm
I try to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies
I try and laugh about it, hiding the tears in my eyes
     A              Bm-C#m-D-C#m-Bm-A
Cos boys don't cry

I would break down at your feet and beg forgiveness, plead with you
But I know that it's too late and now there's nothing I can do

So I try to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it hiding the tears in my eyes
Cos boys don't cry

I would tell you that I loved you if I thought that you would stay
But I know that it's no use that you've already gone away

  E             F#m-F#m7 E              F#m-F#m7
Misjudged your limits, pushed you too far
  Em            F#m-F#m7    D                       E
Took you for granted, I thought that you needed me more

Now I would do most anything to get you back by my side
But I just keep on laughing, hiding the tears in my eyes
Cos boys don't cry      Boys don't cry

                                a forest

       Am       C     F             Dm
Come closer and see, see into the trees
Find the girl while you can
Come closer and see, see into the dark
Just follow your eyes, just follow your eyes

B-C-F#-C  B-C-F#-F

I hear her voice calling my name
The sound is deep in the dark
I hear her voice and start to run
Into the trees, into the trees

Suddenly I stop, but I know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest all alone
The girl was never there, it's always the same
I'm running towards nothing
Again and again and again

*****************************************************************************

                                primary

The innocence of sleeping children
Dressed in white and slowly dreaming
Stops all time
I slow my steps and start to blur
So many years have filled my heart
I never thought I'd say those words

The further we go and older we grow
The more we know, the less we show

The very first time I saw your face
I thought of a song and quickly changed the tune
The very first time I touched your skin
I thought of a story and rushed to reach the end too soon

Oh remember, please don't change

And so the fall came thirteen years
A shining ring and how I could forget your name
The air no longer in my throat
Another perfect lie is choked, but it always feels the same

So they close together, dressed in red and yellow, innocent forever
Sleeping children in their blue soft rooms still dream

*****************************************************************************

Bass intro:

D -----------------|-----------------|
A -0-0-2-2-2-2--5--|-----------------|
E -----------------|---0-2-2-2-2--5--|

a few measures of this, and then


D -0-0-2-2-2-2--5--|-----------------|
A -----------------|---0-2-2-2-2--5--|
E -----------------|-----------------|

Chords are basically Bm-D and F#m-A

Whisper your name in an empty room
You brush past my skin, as soft as fur
Taking hold I taste your scent
Distant noises, other voices
Pounding in my broken head
Commit the sin
Commit yourself
And all the other voices said
Change your mind
You're always wrong

Come around at Christmas
I really have to see you
Smile at me slyly
Another festive compromise
But I live with desertion
And eight million people
Distant noises
Other voices
Pulsing in my swinging arms
Caress the sound
So many dead
And all the voices said
Change your mind
You're always wrong

*****************************************************************************

                          charlotte sometimes

All the faces, all the voices blur
Change to one face, change to one voice
Prepare yourself for bed, the light seems bright and glares on white walls
All the sounds of Charlotte sometimes
Into the night with Charlotte sometimes

Night after night she lay alone in bed
Her eyes so open to the dark, the streets all looked so strange
They seemed so far away but Charlotte did not cry

     F                       Am
The people seemed so close playing their expressionless games
The people seemed so close so many other names

Sometimes I'm dreaming
Where all the other people dance
Sometimes I'm dreaming
Charlotte sometimes
Sometimes I'm dreaming
Expressionless the trance
Sometimes I'm dreaming
So many different names
Sometimes I'm dreaming
The sounds all stay the same
Sometimes I'm dreaming
She hopes to open shadowed eyes
On a different world
Come to me
Scared princess
Charlotte sometimes...

On that bleak track
(See the sun is gone again)
The tears were pouring down her face
She was crying and crying for a girl
Who died so many years before...

Sometimes I dream
Where all the other people dance
Sometimes I dream
Charlotte sometimes
Sometimes I dream
The sounds all stay the same
Sometimes I'm dreaming
There are so many different names
Sometimes I dream
Sometimes I dream...

Charlotte sometimes crying for herself
Charlotte sometimes dreams a wall around herself
But it's always with love
With so much love it looks like
Everything else
Of Charlotte sometimes
So far away
Glass sealed and pretty
Charlotte sometimes

                           the hanging garden

Creatures kissing in the rain
Shapeless in the dark again
In the hanging garden
Please don't speak
In the hanging garden
No one sleeps

Catching haloes on the moon
Gives my hands the shapes of angels
In the heat of the night
The animals scream
In the heat of the night
Walking into a dream...

Fall fall fall fall
Into the walls
Jump jump out of time
Fall fall fall fall
Out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals cry

Creatures kissing in the rain
Shapeless in the dark again
In a hanging garden
Change the past
In a hanging garden
Wearing furs
And masks

Fall fall fall fall
Into the walls
Jump jump out of time
Fall fall fall fall
Out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals die
In the hanging garden

*****************************************************************************

                            let's go to bed

Let me take your hands
I'm shaking like milk
Turning
Turning blue
All over the windows and the floors
Fires outside in the sky
Look as perfect as cats
The two of us
Together again
But it's just the same
A stupid game

But I don't care if you don't
And I don't feel if you don't
And I don't want it if you don't
And I won't say it
If you won't say it first

You think you're tired now
But wait until three
Laughing at the Christmas lights
You remember from December
All of this then back again
Another girl
Another name
Stay alive but stay the same
It's just the same
A stupid game

But I don't care if you don't
And I don't feel if you don't
And I don't want it if you don't
And I won't play it
If you won't play it first

You can't even see now
So you ask me the way
You wonder if it's real
Because it couldn't be rain
Through the right doorway
And into the white room
It used to be the dust that would lay here
When I came here alone

Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo
Let's go to bed

A    G   E       really simple, huh?

here is the chorus...still playing all octaves...
--2-2-5-5-7-7-7-7-|
----------0-0-0-0-|

and now the neat part...that crazy melody
it's actually played on keyboard or guitar,
but it sounds neat, so here it is:

I called you after midnight
Then ran until I burst
I passed the howling woman
And stood outside your door

We walked around the lake
And woke up in the rain
And everyone turned over
Troubled in their dreams again

Visiting time is over
And so we walk away
And both play dead then cry out loud
Why we always cry this way?

I kissed you in the water
And made your dry lips sing
I saw you look like a Japanese baby
In an instant I remembered everything

I called you after midnight
Then ran until my heart burst
I passed the howling woman
And stood outside your door

I kissed you in the water
And made your dry lips sing
I saw you look
Like a Japanese baby
In an instant I remembered everything

We move like cagey tigers, we couldn't get closer than this
The way we walk, the way we talk, the way we stalk, the way we kiss
We slip through the streets while everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and sleeker and wider and brighter
We bite and scratch and scream all night
Let's go and throw all the songs we know...

  C                                  Dm
Into the sea, you and me, all these years and no one heard

I'll show you in spring it's a treacherous thing
    Dm                        Am
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully pretty
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh? We should have each other with cream
Then curl up in the fire and sleep for a while
It's the grooviest thing, it's the perfect dream

Into the sea, you and me, all these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring it's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully pretty
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you
We should have each other to dinner huh? We should have each other with cream
Then curl up in the fire, get up for a while
It's the grooviest thing, it's the perfect dream

 Em                                        F
Hand in hand is the only way to land and always the right way round
 Em
Not broken in pieces like hated little meeces
 F                                    Am
How could we miss someone as dumb as this?

I love you ... let's go... Oh ... solid gone...
How could we miss someone as dumb as this?

                            the caterpillar

Flicka flicka flicka, here you are
Cata cata cata, Caterpillar girl
Flowing in and filling up my hopeless heart
Oh never never go

Dust my lemon lies with powder pink and sweet
The day I stop is the day you change
And fly away from me

You flicker and you're beautiful, you glow inside my head
You hold me hypnotized, I'm mesmerized
Your flames the flames that kiss me dead

Chords:

 A  Asus4  Dmaj9           A  Asus4  Dmaj9
Yesterday I got so old, I felt like I could die
Yesterday I got so old it made me want to cry
Go on go on, just walk away
Go on go on, your choice is made
Go on go on and disappear
Go on go on, away from here

        Bm                     E
And I know I was wrong when I said it was true
         Bm                    E                   A  Asus4  Dmaj9
That it couldn't be me and be her inbetween without you, without you

Yesterday I got so scared I shivered like a child
Yesterday away from you it froze me deep inside
Come back come back, don't walk away
Come back come back, come back today
Come back come back, why can't you see?
Come back come back, come back to me

And I know I was wrong when I said it was true
That it couldn't be me and be her inbetween without you, without you

          I've waited hours for this, I've made myself so sick
                     I wish I'd stayed asleep today
                   I never thought this day would end
                 I never thought tonight could ever be
                            This close to me

         Just try to see in the dark, just try to make it work
                  To feel the fear before you're here
                 I make the shapes come much too close
                   I pull my eyes out, hold my breath
                         And wait until I shake

        But if I had faith, then I could make it safe and clean
        If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

          I've waited hours for this, I've made myself so sick
                     I wish I'd stayed asleep today
                   I never thought this day would end
                 I never thought tonight could ever be
                            This close to me

         But if I had face then I could make it safe and clean
        If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

 F#m              D
Say goodbye on a night like this
             B                  D
If it's the last thing we ever do
You never looked as lost as this
Sometimes it doesn't even look like you
It goes dark, it goes darker still
Please stay
But I watch you like I'm made of stone
As you walk away

     C#m                        B
I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night
A witch hunt for another girl
For always and ever is always for you
      G#m                       E
Your trust the most gorgeously stupid thing I ever cut in the world

Say hello on a day like today, say it every time you move
The way that you look at me now makes me wish I was you
It goes deep, it goes deeper still
This touch
And the smile and the shake of your head

I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night
Can't stand here like this anymore
For always and ever is always for you
I want it to be perfect
Like before

 D      E          F#m          F#m-G#m-A
        I want to change it all

I want to change
