5. It's Beginning to Get to Me

Its Beginning To Get To Me Chords by Snow Patrol, www.Ultimate-Guitar.Com

Tabbed by Ben McConnell
Standard Tuning
I tabbed this for Acoustic Guitar. I may be off on a few chords. It's hard to tell what 
band was doing, since this song they use a lot of bass.
Chords Used: E A D

E
I want something
E
That's purer than the water
E
Like we were
E		A
It's not there now
A		   E
Ineloquence and anger
E
Are all we have
E	A
Like Saturn's rings
A                   E
An icy loop around me
E
Too hard to hold
E	A
Lash out first
A                        E
At all the things we don't like
E
Or understand
E
And it's beginning to get to me
E			A
That I know more of the stars and sea
A
Than I do of what's in your head
E
Barely touching in our cold bed
E
Are you beginning to get my point
E
They're always fighting with aching joints
E			A
It's doing nothing but tire us out
A		E
No one knows what this fight's about
E
The answer phone
A		E
The lonely sound of your voice
E
Frozen in time
E
I only need
A			E
The compass that you gave me
E
To guide me on
E
And it's beginning to get to me
D
That I know more of the stars and sea
A
Than I do of what's in your head
            E
Barely touching in our cold bed
            D
Are you beginning to get my point
A
They're always fighting with aching joints
A
It's doing nothing but tire us out
            E
No one knows what this fight's about
            D
It's so thrilling but also wrong
A
Don't have to prove that you are so strong
A
Cos I can carry you on my back
            E
After our enemies attack
            D
I tried to tell you before I left
            A
But I was screaming under my breath
E
You are the only thing that makes sense
E
Just ignore all this present tense
Strum E chord loudly

E
We need to feel breathless with love
E
And not collapse under its weight
E
I'm gasping for the air to fill
E
My lungs with everything I've lost
E
We need to feel breathless with love
E
And not collapse under its weight
E
I'm gasping for the air to fill
E
My lungs with everything I've lost

END ON E

6. You Could Be Happy

Capo 3

D 1 bar  A 1 bar  G 2bars x4

             D         A       G
You could be happy and I won't know
                          D     A           G
But you weren't happy the day I watched you go
                          D      A       G
And all the things that I wish I had not said
                             D       A     G
Are played on lips 'til it's madness in my head

                  Em         D     G     
Is it too late to remind you how we were?
                         Em      D        G
But not our last days of silent, screaming blur
               Em       D        G
Most of what I remember makes me sure
                               D       A       G
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

             D        A        G
You could be happy, I hope you are
            D            A           G
You made me happier than I'd been by far
                   D     A         G
Somehow everything I own smells of you
                   D            A       G
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true

                       Em     D      G
Do the things that you always wanted to
                         Em        D            G
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do
                     Em      D      G
More than anything I want to see you go
                D           A         G
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world 

7. Make This Go On Forever

Capo 4

Verse 1

A                                   C
Please don't let this turn into something it's not
G                       F
I can only give you everything I've got
A                          C
I can't be as sorry as you think I should
G                                 F
but I still love you more than anyone else could

A                                   C
All that I keep thinking throughout this whole flight
G                                       F
Is 'it could take my whole damn life to make this right'
A                                         C
This splintered mast I'm holding on won't save me long
G                                    F
Because I know fine well that what I did was wrong

Chorus
Am                   C              F                         
   G
The last girl in the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
Am                 C               F                   G
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
Am                       C                    F
The weight of water, the way you taught me to look past everything I had
G
ever learned
Am                    C              F                   G
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

Verse 2
A                                      C
We have got through so much worse than this before
G                                      F
What's so different this time that you can't ignore?
A                                    C
You say it is much more than just my last mistake
G                                       F
And we should spend some time apart for both our sakes

Chorus
 x2

Piano Solo

A

Outro
A
And I don't know where to look
A
My words just break and melt
A
Please just save me from this darkness
A
Please just save me from this darkness

8. Set Fire to the Third Bar

Bm	A	G x2

Bm		A		G
I find the map and draw a straight line
Bm		A		G
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
Bm		A		G
The distance from me to where you'd be
Bm		A		G
It's only finger-lengths that I see
Bm		A		G
I touch the place where I'd find your face
Bm		A		G
My fingers in creases of distant dark places

Bm		A		G
I hang my coat up in the first bar
Bm		A		G
There is no peace that I've felt so far
Bm		A		G
The laughter penetrates my silence
Bm		A		G
As drunken men find flaws in science

Bm		A		G
Their words mostly noises
Bm		A		G
Ghosts with just voices
Bm		A		G
Your words in my memory
Bm		A		G
Are like music to me

Bm			D	
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
And sets me down in your warm arms

Bm		A		G
After I have travelled so far
Bm		A		G
We'd set the fire to the third bar
Bm		A		G
We'd share each other like an island
Bm		A		G
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
Bm		A		G
And dreaming pink wildfire
Bm		A		G
The last place we left off
Bm		A		G
Your soft skin is weeping
Bm		A		G
A joy you can't keep it

Bm			D
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
And I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms

Bm			D
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms

C5      A5    F5 E5  G5
Headlights... before me
E5           A5      F5
So beautiful, so clear
C5      A5    F5 E5  G5
Reach out... and take it
E5           A5               F5
Cos I'm so ti-red of all this f-ear

(bass line)
My tongue is lost, oh, I can't tell you
Please just see it in my eyes
A8            B8         G8
I pull up thorns from our ripped bodies
A8            B8         G8
And let the blood fall in my mouth

PRE-CHORUS(same as before)


CHORUS (X2)

OUTRO: same as bridge

10. Open Your Eyes

G			C	
All this feels strange and untrue 
Em			C
And I won't waste a minute without you
G			C	
My bones ache, my skin feels cold 
Em			C
And I'm getting so tired and so old 

G			C
The anger swells in my guts 
Em			C
And I won't feel these slices and cuts 
G			C
I want so much to open your eyes 
Em			C
Cos I need you to look into mine

G			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes
Em			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes[x4]

G			C
Get up, get out, get away from these liars 
Em			C
Cos they don't get your soul or your fire
G			C
Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine 
Em			C
And we'll walk from this dark room for the last time 

G			C
Every minute from this minute now 
Em			C
We can do what we like anywhere 
G			C
I want so much to open your eyes 
Em			C
Cos I need you to look into mine 

G			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes
Em			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes [x8]

G			C
All this feels strange and untrue 
Em			C
And I won't waste a minute without you

11. Finish Line

Intro/Verse: C, Am, G, F
Chorus: G, Am, F

C          Am       G              F
     The earth is warm next to my ear
C        Am    G                  F
     Insects noise is all that I hear
C          Am          G              F
     A magic trick makes the world disappear
C          Am       G                               F
     The skies are dark, they're dark but they're clear

G                         Am              F
A distant motorcade and suddenly there's joy
G                              Am            F
The snow and tickertape blurs all my senses numb
G                                 Am             F
It's like the finish line where everything just ends
G                           Am             F
The crack of radios seems close enough to touch

C          Am       G              F
      Cold water, cleaning my wounds
C          Am       G              F
      A side parade, with a single balloon
C          Am       G              F
      I'm done with this, I'm counting to ten
C          Am       G              F
      Blue as seas, running to them

G                         Am              F
I feel like I am watching everything from space
G                       Am            F
And in a minute I hear my name and I wake
G                            Am                   F
I think the finish line's a good place we could start
G                            Am                  F
Take a deep breath, take in all that you could want
