ATOP A CAKE
by alvvays
from their album 'alvvays'
tabbed by drew (iamdrew@gmail.com)

great song, super catchy.
i think this song has been ever-so-slightly pitch shifted on the record.
these chords match up with their live performances though.
it's not a tab, so i haven't captured all of their chord voicings.  just the letters

[Verse]
  E             Amaj7                B
i lie on a sofa awake, it's what you said last night
      E                   Amaj7              B
you'd like us on top of a cake but you won't let me take a bite

[Interlude]   E  Amaj7  B
E                   Amaj7            B
flowers arriving in fleets, can't we talk about this
E                        Amaj7            B
why let the state in our sheets, can't we do without it

[Pre-Chorus]
E                  Emaj7                        Abm7         B7
      well i don't mean to wind you up, but i'd like to slow it down
E            Emaj7      Abm7        B7
      how do i remain a pup if you put me in a gown.

[Chorus]
C#m                           F#m7
     what's it got to do with you?
                         Abm7
what's it got to do with me?
               F#m7                                       C#m
how can i lose control, when you're driving from the back seat?
C#m                            F#m7
      what's it got to do with you?
                         Abm7
what's it got to do with me?
               F#m7                 B7                    E
how can i lose control, when you're driving from the back seat?

[Interlude]   E  Amaj7  B

[Verse]
E                  Amaj7               B
corners begin to repeat, i think we're getting lost
   E                        Amaj7              B
we walked to the end of the street but we were bitten by the frost

[Pre-Chorus]
E               Emaj7           Abm7         B7
      so if you have to thaw me out, you can put me in a pail
E            Emaj7        Abm             B7
      can we take another route?  i don't want to wear a veil

[Chorus]
C#m                           F#m7
     what's it got to do with you?
                         Abm7
what's it got to do with me?
               F#m7                                       C#m
how can i lose control, when you're driving from the back seat?
C#m                            F#m7
      what's it got to do with you?
                         Abm7
what's it got to do with me?
               F#m7                 B                     E
how can i lose control, when you're driving from the back seat?

[Bridge]
C#m7                  F#m7     Abm7       C#m7
    i'll wait in the lobby for someone to show,
C#m7                  F#m7         Abm7          C#m7
    and if they don't come, i will know where to go
C#m7                  F#m7     Abm7        C#m7
    the bodies are lined up outside in the hall,
C#m7                  F#m7      B7
    i don't want to decay in a mall
E                            F#m7                      Abm7                   F#m7
    if everything you say is true, then why would i disagree how could i lose control

[Chorus]
C#m                           F#m7
     what's it got to do with you?
                         Abm7
what's it got to do with me?
               F#m7                                       C#m
how can i lose control, when you're driving from the back seat?
C#m                            F#m7
      what's it got to do with you?
                         Abm7
what's it got to do with me?
               F#m7                 B                     E
how can i lose control, when you're driving from the back seat?
