I Was That I Was Beautiful For You       (Darren Hanlon)
Tabbed By Simon, re-arranged by Kendra: dare2dream1@gmail.com
Note: All Chords Relative to Capo.
  G  Cadd9 D/F# Am Em D Cm

|-3--3-----0----0--0--2--3-|
|-3--3-----3----1--0--3--4-|
|-0--0-----2----2--0--2--5-|
|-0--2-----0----2--2--0--5-|
|-2--3-----0----0--2--x--3-|
|-3--0-----2----x--0--x--3-|

Cm is a barre chord.

I know the intro and verses up to the Em. it goes something like this:
   G     Cadd9 G     D/F# ((the Em after:              ))

e|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------5---------5-|
G|-----5-----5-------------7-------------5---5---------|
D|---------7-------5-----5-------------6-------6---6---|
A|-7-7---8-----7-7---5-5-------------6-----------6-----|
E|-8-----------8-----7---------------------------------|

and then it does something i can't quite put my finger on. look for updates.







Capo 5th Fret

[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]

  G               C             G     D/F#
I wish that I was beautiful for you
  G           C             G         D/F#               Em    
I wish that I inspired tiny fireworks inside the way you do
              G    
So delicately made
              C    
A prayer left un-prayed
C      G   Am G    D   C           Am              
Before the morning sky fades up to blue
      Cm    
And I wish that I was beautiful for you 

[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]

  G                   C            G    D/F#      
I wish that somehow I could find a pill 
      G                C                G      
For a quick fix modern tonic that would change me with one
D/F#            Em    
swallow I would kill
                       G   
Watch folks line up to pay
                C   
Stare at me all day
    C   G    Am   G   D C                 Am                 
But I'd turn them all away if that be thy will
    Cm    
One tiny little innocuous pill

[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] 

      D/F#           Am       D                Am                 
But a wish is just a pin in a swimming pool of needles
   Em  A   G                  C      D/F#            G            
If for one night you need the room I wish to be your tomb
        D/F#      
You can lie in me

[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]

      G               C                G      D/F#               
Is it possible I have other things you need 
          G           C               G               D/F#               
But to be worthy of a single page out of one of those magazines you
Em
Read
               G   
As glossy as a mirror
                  C      
But mirrors never lie
        C G  Am   G  D   C        Am      
They're difficult on the eye it's true
      Cm    
And I wish that I was beautiful for you

[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]

  G                    C              G    D/F#         
I dreamed that we were traveling on a bus 
G                 C                                    D/F#         
Speeding along an un-named plain towards somewhere and nowhere there 
    Em    
was us
                             G   
Our hands lay useless in our laps
                      C   
Like beetles on their backs
        G               C            G    D/F#               
We came to a stretch of road where a fire    
    G                C            G                    D/F#               
Had burned the edges all along it looked as though the highway wore
Em
Eyeliner
                 G   
You kissed me by surprise
                 C   
When I opened my eyes
      C      G  Am  G  D   C      
You'd turned into some old guy
  Am    
I screamed
          Cm                                   G       
But don't forget of all these things I've only dreamed

[Am] [D] [Am] [Am]     [Em] [A]

           G                  C      
If for one night you need the room
D/F#          G         
I can be your tomb
        D/F#      
You can lie in me

[G] [C] [G] [D/F#]
[G] [C] [G] [D/F#] [G]
