Death Cab for Cutie - Diamond and a Tether This sounds right to me, listen to the song to get the right rhythm. I left out the two extended portions of the song for simplicity's sake. Verse: G C G Pity, take pity on me. C Am C G 'Cause I'm not half the man that I should be. C G C G Always turning to run, C Am C G C G from the people I should not be afraid of. C G C G And darling, you should know C Am C G that I have fantasies about being alone. C G It's like love is a lesson, C G that I can't learn. C Am C G I make the same mistakes at each familiar turn. Chorus: Em C G I know you can't hold out forever Em C G D waiting on a diamond and a tether Em C from a boy who won't swim B7 Em but who will dip his toe in A7 C G C G just to keep you here with him. Verse: C G C G I've got this habit I abhor. C Am C G When we go out I'm always watching the door. C G C G As if there's someone I'm gonna see C Am C G who could outdo the things that you do to me. Chorus: Em C G And I know you can't hold out forever Em C G D waiting on a diamond and a tether Em C from a boy who won't fly B7 Em but who will take to the skies A7 C G C G C if he thinks you are about to say goodbye. Verse: G C G Pity, take pity on me. C Am C G 'cause I'm not half the man that I should be. C G And I don't blame you, C G you've had enough, C Am C G of all these empty promises and countless bluffs. Chorus: Em C G 'cause I know you can't hold out forever Em C G D waiting on a diamond and a tether Em C B7 Em from a boy who won't jump when he falls in love. A7 C Em He just stands with his toes on the edge A7 C G and he waits for it do disappear again.
