Am                        D
I couldn't find quiet I went out in the rain
            G                  C
I was just soakin' my head to unrattle my brain
Am                        D
Somebody said you disappeared in a crowd
            G             C
I didn't understand then I don't understand now


Am        D
Am I the one you think about 
             G                               C
When you're sitting in your faintin' chair drinking Pink Rabbits?
Am        D
Am I the one you think about 
             G                               C
When you're sitting in your faintin' chair drinking Pink Rabbits?
       
 Am                C
And everybody was gone 
 Am                                               C
You were staring down the street 'cause you were tryin' not to crack up

Verse 2

 Am                            D
It wasn't like a rain, it was more like a sea
          G                          C
I didn't ask for this pain, it just came over me
 Am                     D
I love a storm, but I don't love lightning
          G                    C
All the waters coming up so fast, it's frightening


Am        D
Am I the one you think about 
             G                               C
When you're sitting in your faintin' chair drinking Pink Rabbits?
Am        D
Am I the one you think about 
             G                               C
When you're sitting in your faintin' chair drinking Pink Rabbits?

 Am                C
And everybody was gone 
 Am                                               C
You were staring down the street 'cause you were tryin' not to crack

       Am
I was solid gold
       D     
I was in the fight
       G
I was coming back 
          C
From what seemed like a ruin
    Am
I couldn't see 
      D 
You coming so far
       G
I just turn around 
     C
And there you are

Am                             D
I'm so surprised you want to dance with me now
           G                            C   
I was just getting used to living life without you around
Am                             D
I'm so surprised you want to dance with me now
           G                         C
You always said I held you way too high off the ground


Am                       D
You didn't see me I was falling apart
         G                       C
I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park
Am                       D
You didn't see me I was falling apart
         G                       C
I was a television version of a person with a broken heart

Am                       D
You didn't see me I was falling apart
         G                       C
I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park
Am                       D
You didn't see me I was falling apart
         G                       C
I was a television version of a person with a broken heart


 Am                C
And everybody was gone 
 Am                                              C
You were staring down the street 'cause you were tryin' not to crack up
 Am                 C
Bona Drag was still on
Am                        C                              G   D
Now I only think about Los Angeles when the sound kicks out
Am                        C                              G   D  Am  C
Now I only think about Los Angeles when the sound kicks out

Good job, thanks a lot. Chords seem about right, although I'm pretty sure the Dessners don't play it the normal way ;)

Oh and it's 'A needle in a doll' in the outro.
Cheers

Think it's a Dmaj instead of an F#min in the verses

yeah you're right about 'needle in a doll' I found out about it just yesterday when the tabs was already pending (The trouble with Dessners is you either play it 100% correct with your twin brother or you keep it as simple as you can :))
sgsmaxwe - I took me some time to know what's Dmaj and F#min but you're right :) I changed it everywhere else too coz this song is pretty repetitive
Thanks for the opinions!
