Title: No Sunlight
Artist: Death Cab for Cutie
Album: Narrow Stairs

Tabbed by: Josh Tiesma (nophilip@gmail.com)

Tuning: EADGBE

This is a very fun song to play from Death Cab's new album (which is awesome). It sounds
cheery when you first hear it, but when you actually listen to the lyrics, it's kind of
Anyways, there's no other tabs for this song out there online. I'm sure this is 99.9% 
with the exception of the section I have marked "possibly not correct".

Intro (Palm mute = *)

   *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *     *  *  (Gradually let off mute, last 2 are open)

Verse 1
Play this all through:

I felt so safe/ In the warming bath"

C      Em      F
Oh, my talking bird
           C    G      F
Though you know so few words
           C   Em     F
They're on infinite repeat
          C                G            F
Like your brain can't keep up with your beak

         C          Em   F
And your kept in an open cage
          C       G        F
So you're free to leave or stay
        C         Em     F
And sometimes you get confused
                C        G              F
Like there is a hint I'm trying to give you

--------
-Chorus-

    Dm
The longer you think

The less you know what to do

Well it's hard to see your way out
         C         G          F
When you live in a house in a house
           C     Em  F
'Cause you don't realize
         C            G              F
That the windows were open the whole time

    C      Em      F
But oh, my talking bird
            C            G            F
Though your feathers are tattered and furled
  C        Em       F
I love you all your days
         C                  G        F
'Til the breath leaves your delicate frame

-Chorus / Outro-

It's all here for you

As long as you choose to stay
     Dm
It's all here for you
   G                       C
As long as you don't fly away

 G, C, G, C

     G           C        G      C             Am             G  (C, G, C)      
 I'm starting to feel we stay together out of fear of dying alone
           G                    C          G                C
 I've been slipping through the years, my old clothes don't fit like
           Am                     C                         G    (C, G, C)
 they once did, so they hang like ghosts of the people I've been. 
                  G              C      G       C           Am 
 but it's like my heart can't contain i fall in love every day
                   G    (C, G, C)
 and i feel like a fool.
   G                 C          G                 C                    Am
 I have to face the truth, that no one could ever look at me like you do
                    C                G  (C, G, C)
 like I'm something worth holding on to.
         D                 Am                Em                   C
 There's times I think of leaving, but it's something I'll never do.
        G          D          E       Am          C          G
 Cause you can do better than me, but I can't do better than you.
 G           D          E       Am         C           G
 You can do better than me, but I can't do better than you.

Bm                         D                 A
     When the wind picked up the fire spread
                      E                 Bm
And the grapevines seemed left for dead
                   D                             A
And the Northern sky looked like the end of days
                Fm
The end of days


Bm                    D                 A
     The wake-up call to a rented room
                  E                      Bm
Sounded like an alarm of impending doom
                D                      A
To warn us it's only a matter of time

--------
-Chorus-

              Bm        D        A        E
Before we all burn

Before we all burn

Before we all burn

-Verse 2-

Bm                   D                        A
      We bought some wine and some paper cups
                    E                            Bm
Near your daughters school when we picked her up
               D               A
And drove to a cemetery on a hill
       Fm
On a hill

Bm                         D                     A
      And we watched the plumes paint the sky gray
                    E                               Bm
But she laughed and danced through the field of graves
             D                    A
And there I knew it would be alright
          E
That everything

--------
-Chorus-
--------
           Bm         D         A         E
Would be alright
           Bm         D         A         Fm
Would be alright
           Bm         D         A         E
Would be alright
           Bm         D         A (hold A)
Would be alright

--------
-Bridge-
--------
C#                               D
     And the news reports on the radio
            A             Bm
Said it was getting worse
             D                  Fm
As the ocean air fanned the flames
C#
     But I couldn't think
   D                   A           Bm
Of anywhere I would of rather been
            D          E
To watch it all burn away


--------
-Chorus-
--------
         Bm        D         A         E
To burn away
Bm        D          A         Fm

-Outro-
-------
Bm                      D                   A
      And the firemen worked in double shifts
                 E                Bm
With prayers for rain on their lips
                     D                 A (fade)
And they knew it was only a matter of time

Tuning: Standard, Capo on 1

"Your New Twin Sized Bed"

Returning theme, Gibbard plays this (counted without the capo)
e|---6-8---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------8-------6--------------------------------------------------------|
G|8-5--------10--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------10-------8-8-------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chords are respective to the capo. If you want to play it without the capo, it would be
A#, G#, and Fm.

I'm still not really sure about that G# (G in the tabs). I play it with an extra D#.
Any suggestions?

D              A             G                             D, A, G
You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed
D              A           G                             D, A, G
With a single pillow underneath your single head
D             A                    G                                       D, A, G
   I guess you decided that that old queen was more space than you would need
D              A                 G                                        D, A, G
Now it's in the alley behind your apartment with a sign that says it's free
      Em                 G                  D, A, G
And I hope you have more luck with this than me

D              A           G                D, A, G
You used to think that someone would come along.
D              A           G                D, A, G
And lay beside you in a space that they belong.
D              A                 G                            D, A, G
But the other side of the mattress and box springs stayed like new.
   D              A                 G               D, A, G
'n what's the point of holding onto what never gets used?


Em                      G               D, A, G
Other than to sit and desire for self-abuse.


D               G                  D           A
And I try not to worry, but you've got me terrified
D                               G
It's like your in some kind of hurry
           Em           G            D, A, G
To say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye


D              A            G                             D, A, G
You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed
D              A            G                           D
You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed

Am    G          F      C

-Verse 1-
---------
     Am      F#m7b5
Were not the same, dear
    F           C
As we used to be
    Am              G  
The seasons have changed
    F         D
And so have we
              Am               F#m7b5
And there was little we could say
         F                    C
And even less that we could do
            Am                 G
To stop the ice from getting thinner
       F       C
Under me and you

-Verse 2-
---------
   Am        F#m7b5
We buried our love
      F          C
In a wintery grave
  Am              G
A lump in the snow
    F            D
Was all that remained
          Am            F#m7b5
Though we stayed by its side
        F               C
As the days turned to weeks
        Am                 G
And the ice kept getting thinner
           F               C
With ever word that we'd speak

--------
-Bridge-
--------
     F                 C
And when the spring arrived
        F             C#dim
We were taken by surprise
         Dm              G
When the flows under our feet
      C          F
Bled into the sea
     G
And nothing was left
For you and me

Am     F#m7b5      F      C
Am     G           F      D
Am     F#m7b5      F      C
Am     G           F      C

-Verse 3-
---------
     Am        F#m7b5
Were not the same, dear
      F          C
And it seems to me
          Am            G
There's nowhere we can go
     F              D
With nothing underneath
       Am             F#m7b5
And it saddens me to say
         F             C
What we both knew was true
         Am               G
That the ice was getting thinner
       F      C
Under me and you

    Am               G
The ice was getting thinner
       F      C
Under me and you

The little part Walla plays at the beginning of Bixby Canyon Bridge is played:

e|--12---12--
b|--13---13--
g|--14---12--
d|--14---14--
a|--12---12--
e|--xx ---xx--

Alternate between the two with tremolo picking.
