This song is from the new Motion City album "My Dinosaur Life."
It's an Awesome song but so is like every other Motion City song
Enjoy!

That chorus thing was kinda weird so any corrections are welcome

A               E             D
If I stand too close I might fall in
            A       E         D
But if I’m too far gone I’ll never win
         A        E      D                            
If you believe in me I might just want 
              F#m        E    D
to spend some time with you again
      A       E         D
I’m afraid I tend to disappear 
         A       E          D
Into an anxious state when you draw near 
             A     E         D
There is no reasoning it’s quite a silly thing 
             F#m       E         D
But it’s the way I’ve been for years 
           A     E       D
So I will understand if you don’t stay 
              A         E                 D
They say I’m great at first but then the magic fades 
          A    E      D
Into an awful you of dismal views 
     F#m         E    D
and pessimistic attitude 

D          A        D       E      D
All this distance years of sweet resistance 
D         A     G               D
Swirling over head like angry clouds of discontent 
       
A,E,D 3x
F#m,E,D 
        A      E     D
I have apologised a billion times 
                A       E         D
When I’ve gone off the wall like Busta Rhymes 
               A      E          D
And pulled a stupid stunt that left you thinking 
           F#m        E        D
there was something wrong with me 
                 A          E      D
you’ve thrown a few choice phrases at my way 
            A          E      D
And I’ve ignored them all as best I could 
             A    E         D
Except that tiny bit how I just can’t commit 
               F#m      E        D
There is some truth in what you say 

D          A        D       E      D
All this distance years of sweet resistance 
D         A     G               D
Swirling over head like angry clouds of discontent 

       A        E       D
If I stand too close I might fall in 
            A       E          D
But if I’m too far gone I’ll never win 
        A         E     D
If you believe in me I might just want 
              F#m       E     D
To spend some time with you again 
             F#m        E    D
I spent some time with you again 

A,E,D 3x
F#m,E,D 

     A         E        D
If I stand too close I might fall in 
            A       E          D
But if I’m too far gone I’ll never win 
         A        E      D 
If you believe in me I might just want
              F#m        E    A
To spend some time with you again

This might be a little off, I don't usually learn stuff by ear but as I went through these chords I made myself try to learn the lead riff. I think* I got the basics of it. Let me know what you think.

It's all on the G string. Well at least what I figured out. I would not be surprised if you could add on to it and make it sound a little more whole. Oh well



G-99999999-9-7-6-4-2~
play that 3 times then

G-7777-6666-2~



I am pretty sure on the last part he goes straight to the A at the end and doesn't play the B before it. But I am working on laptop speakers so I might be missing a quick note there.

For this part, maybe change it to:

F#m A D E
All this distance years of sweet resistance
F#m A G D
Swirling over head like angry clouds of discontent
