This song is pretty simple, and has Four chords.


     G     C     F     Am
e|---3-----0-----0------0---------|
B|---0-----1-----1------1---------|
G|---0-----0-----2------2---------|
D|---0-----2-----3------2---------|
A|---2-----3-----3------0---------|
E|---3-----x-----x------0---------|

Intro: In the intro you strum the C chord and play a little fill, it's easy.

e|----0----------|----0-----------|
B|----1----1-----|----1----1------|
G|----0-0h2-2p0--|----0-0h2-2-----|    x2
D|----2----------|----2-----------|
A|--3-3----------|--3-3-----------|
E|----x----------|----x-----------|

The verse is mainly strumming the chord shown once and letting it ring.
    C                             Am                                  C
        Would it help to write a letter, as puddles turn to icy lakes? The
                                             Am
temperature is dropping; the temperature is dropping with every breath or
              C                                   Am
life it takes. And baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, I guess it wouldn't be
           F                                     G
bad - if street lights and the cold nights in between - were all we ever had.



((Intro) If you don't want to do the fill you can just play C for 3 beats and F twice on 
the fourth. Listen to the song for clarity.)


 C                          Am                                          C
    Simultaneous maps of cities, states of heart, or the heart of states. And
                                  Am                               C
I keep on hoping, and I keep on asking to stay awake or hibernate. And maybe,
                               Am
maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, our marks can make it through the snow.
   F                              G                     Am
But even words can wither in the frost, if all we ever know is this beating
C                     G                                         F
pulse that slows to less than one beat per minute before the spring thaw. Do
            Am                               C                        G
we measure days or years? Or are we tired of waiting? And is it a luxury, or
                       F
survival, or all that we have?

Play the intro Fill for a few measure to end it.

Good luck, thanks.

2 minor things.

e|----0----------|----0-----------|
B|----1----1-----|----1----1------|
G|----0-0h2-2p0--|----0-0h2-2-----|
D|----2----------|----2-----------|
A|--3-3----------|--3-3-----------|
E|----x----------|----x-----------|

should be

e|---------------|----------------|
B|----1----1-----|----1----1------|
G|------0h2-2p0--|------0h2-0-----|
D|---------------|----------------|
A|--3------------|--3-------------|
E|---------------|----------------|

also the chords are a bit off, not that they're wrong, just with being lined up to the words. other than that its great.
