Tabbed by: Austin Formica
Email:no_motiv06@yahoo.com

Tuning:Standard

This is the Acoustic version of "I Was A Kaleidoscope" By DFCF.
The version I Tabbed was just Ben Gibbard playing acoustic guitar.
The Tab is not exactly what ben Plays but sounds good anyway.

Email me if you have questions or corrections.

Verse (Listen for Rythm)- You could also use a variation of the chords form the chorus.

NOTE:Ben hits the D,G and B strings open palm muted on the downbeats between chords.

I put on my overcoat and walked into the winter
My teeth chattered rhythms.
And they were grouped in twos and threes,
like a morse code message was sent from me to me.
and cars on slippery slopes were stuck:
people pushing through their mittens
as I was beginning
to feel like soaking through my shoes,
getting colder with every step
I took to your apartment, dear. <- (REPEAT PART 4 FROM CHORUS)

Lyrics:

I put on my overcoat and walked into the winter
My teeth chattered rhythms.
And they were grouped in twos and threes,
like a morse code message was sent from me to me.
and cars on slippery slopes were stuck:
people pushing through their mittens
as I was beginning
to feel like soaking through my shoes,
getting colder with every step I took to your apartment, dear.

I was a kaleidoscope
The snow on my lenses distorting the image of what was only one of you
and I didn't know which one to address as your lips moved.

This is when I foret to breathe and all the things I scripted,
They sound so unfounded.
And it's the look that you're giving me
that tells me exactly what you are thinking: "This ain't working anymore."

They got their mothers worked into a panic
sledding down hills into oncoming traffic,
and parents layered clothes until the children couldn't move then
and left them outside until their noises were blue, and I got left there, too.

I put on my overcoat and walked into the winter
My teeth chattered rhythms.
And they were grouped in twos and threes,
like a morse code message was sent from me to me.
