DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE - MARCHING BANDS OF MANHATTAN (ACCOUSTIC)
Tabbed by: Allions
Standard Tunning

VERSE 1
C                   G
If I could open my arms 
Dm                            Am
And span the length of the isle of Manhattan, 
C                          G
I'd bring it to where you are 
Dm                     Am
Making a lake of the East River and Hudson 
C                       G
And if I could open my mouth 
Dm                  Am
Wide enough for a marching band to march out of 
C                          G
They would make your name sing 
Dm                             Am
And bend through alleys and bounce off other buildings. 

C   Am   C   G   
C   Am   C   G

VERSE 2
C                         G
I wish we could open our eyes 
Dm                 Am
To see in all directions at the same time 
C                    G
Oh what a beautiful view 
Dm                  Am
If you were never aware of what was around you 
C                        G
And it is true what you said 
Dm                  Am
That I live like a hermit in my own head 
C                        G
But when the sun shines again 
Dm                            Am
I'll pull the curtains and blinds to let the light in. 

CHORUS
F                     Am               
Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole 
C                            G
Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound 
F                     Am
But while you debate half empty or half full 
C               G
It slowly rises, your love is gonna drown

F      Am      C      G
                         Your love is gonna drown
F      Am      C      G                       (F)
                         Your love is gonna...
