Tabbed by: theratking

Tuning: Standard


The whole song is just I-vi - ii - V, but it's probably easiest
to play it with the capo on 3
All chords/tab are relative to a capo on 3
The licks I tabbed out are just a sketch, just fool around
with the different chords and patterns

I sat deafened by trust on that sofa across

of when unspoken things could then happen between us

and once all those were done and we 
got through love, we would
shoot from the hip, reacting
off of the cuff, splitting

up at the fork when the 
going got rough, with a 
plan for a point to 
rejoin on the road further up

our windows thin where the ice
carved its flowers, I would
hold her, let the wind beat
back those hours, and then

standing on subway trains
clutching her dress,
dependent on her balance, since the 
walls were useless, and while it's

alright to hold tight, please don't 
try to hold on, cause it's a
homerun we hit, love, it's 
going and gone

and then the world turned so fast, it was 
astoundingly still and it 
must have been that moment made of 
midnight on the hill, right when the

cataraxed alleycat
spat back at the moon, throwing out
into the night, time nine
life times too soon, we had

come such a ways, and knew 
just what he meant, there's a 
picture of the three of us at the 
gate to the garden of eden


you can get home, but you 
can't get in
locks are like longing; an 
everchanging thing

and keys are just clouds
made of metal and spark
we knew exactly who we were, and yet
couldn't quite say who we still are

I saw it all happening in one grand epic sweep, from that
first sight that we wouldn't
get to sleep for a week
and generations would follow
the course that we'd charted
from that sofa across,
I couldn't
wait to get started.
