SILENCE - BY THE TEA PARTY
From the album The Edges of Twilight on EMI records
Transcribed by Mark Wiebe

Tuned from low to high  D G D G B D

This song has some other weird instruments in it but
this is how I play the guitar part (he probably uses 
a twelve string on the album.) This transcription is 
probably not to accurate and you'll have to listen to 
the song for the timing but I think it should give you 
the basic idea.

Here's something I've been working at for a little while now.

Song: SILENCE
Artist: THE TEA PARTY
Tabbed by: KRIST SMITH
-----------------------
This song uses another cool tuning (I think it's something like open Gsus2/D
or something):
e tuned down to d
B tuned down to A
G left the same
D left the same
A tuned down to G
E tuned down to D

There are a lot of instruments in on this, so I'm VERY likely wrong.  This
is just MY interpretation.  The timing is probably wrong (I'm not that good).
It's just four dashes (-) for every quarter note.  This is just a guess, but
I think it's in 4/4 timing (please correct me).

INTRO:       
             
             (4 times)

E|------------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------|
    Si-lent spirit  watch me for  me  with her beauty and with her eyes

    Heaven help me  I feel I'm fading  I should rest here for a  while

(INTRO riff again)

VERSE riff over
    
    In the springtime I'm awakened     as   my  spirits  sieze the night

    Heaven help me  I'm foresaken      I should rest here for a  while

BRIDGE:
(For the beginning, just improvise by playing assorted notes on the B (A)
string and the two lower ones open [like the verse], but remember to keep
them in scale-just fool around with it).

                                        (4 times)

INTRO riff

VERSE 1 again

INTRO riff twice over
        -
 In silence
 In silence
  silence!

                                -------
                    Well, that's my interpretation.
                      
    Corrections/lyrics are requested.  Anyone want to take the time to type
out the lyrics of the rest of the songs from the CD liner? (I don't have it)

SILENCE  by  THE TEA PARTY 


Here are the lyrics (please append to SILENCE.TAB by Krist Smith) :


Silent spirit walks before me
With her beauty and with her eyes
Heaven help me
I feel I'm fading
I should be rest here
For a while

In the dreamtime I'm awakened
As my senses seize the night
Heaven help me
I'm forsaken
I should rest here
For a while

And lie in the bed you've made ophelia
Dry are the lips that lost their taste of love
Drown in the waters that would give you life
Cry as this lamentation thrusts its knife

In silence
In silence
SILENCE
