                             The Body - Nina Nastasia
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ben Hurst

From the album "Run to Ruin"

A pretty song on guitar, a perfectly gorgeous song with Nina's vocals and piano/string accompaniment.

Tuning: Standard

I'm having difficulty with the time signature so I split up the measures to best accompany the vocals.

Lyrics & Sequence:

Verse 1
My blood for you
My lover's bruise
My clothes are scattered
My skull is fractured

Verse 2
One lock of your hair
In my grip
Tears on my lip
Cut from my bit

Break

Verse 3
My gaze can not keep
Freckled and green
Whirling over chills
Of my morning

Verse(Instrumental)

Verse 4
Why did you do it?
Why did you?
While I was pleasing?
Will I be waiting?

Break
 
Outro
Giant caws blow
Through the switches
We are heirs
Who's not a coward?

All await
The eyes to cloud
For the will
To leave the birches
