ARIEL PINK'S HAUNTED GRAFFITI - ONLY IN MY DREAMS
from 'Mature Themes' (2012)
tabbed by: Tim van Kester

  Intro (is (sometimes) dubbed one octave lower).
e|-------------12-----------------------------12-----------14---12~----------|
B|-12--14--15-------14------------12--14--15-------14------------------------|
G|----------------------14/16--------------------------14--------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Verse
e|-----5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-----------------------------------------|
B|-5h7-------5-----------5---7---5-------------------------------------------|
G|-------7-------6---7-------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  Until the singing starts, then:

  
e|---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-------------------------------------------|
B|-7---7---5---5-----------5---5---------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------7---7-----------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Pre-chorus
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Chorus:

 'And if I could see...'
e|-------7---------5---------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------7---------5---------------10----------------------------------------|
G|-------7---------6---------6-7------9--------------------------------------|
D|-------9---------7-------9------------------7-9----------------------------|
A|-------9---------7------------------------9-------7h9-5---7------9-7-------|
E|-------7---------5-------------------------------------------7-9-----------|

  'In the world there's...'        'You don't have to explain...'
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------[Synth+choir]------------------------------------7------|
D|-7---7------------------------------7-9---------------------------7-----9-7|
A|---------10--9--7-----------------9-------7h9-5---7------9-7----9----------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------7-9-------------------|


  'On the beach...'  Or play this with emphasis on the G and D strings.
e|-------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------------------------|
G|---------4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-------------------------------------------|
D|-------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-------------------------------------------|
A|-----5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-------------------------------------------|
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------------------------|


  Then the intro, verse, pre-chorus and chorus again. Chorus is slightly
  different. For the second bar, 'In the world there's...':
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------7------------------|
D|-7---7---9--------------7-9---------------------------7-----9-7---7--------|
A|------------10-9------9-------7h9-5---7------9-7----9----------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------7-9-------------------------------|


  Intro again, also slightly different:
e|-------------12-----------------------------12-----------14--15-14-12~--17\|
B|-12--14--15-------14------------12--14--15-------14------------------------|
G|----------------------14/16--------------------------14--------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Verse
e|-----5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-----------------------------------------|
B|-5h7-------5-----------5---7---5-----[x2]--3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---|
G|-------7-------6---7-------------------------6---6---6---6---6---6---6---6-|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Now, this last part repeats a couple of times after some lyrics. Guess
  you'll figure it out. During each of those lyrics, you'll play Bm and A like
  you did at the beginning of the chorus.After the third repeat (so fourth
  time):
 
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---6-7---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-------7--------7-7h9-----------------------7---7---9--------------------|
A|-----------7----9---------9-7---9------9-7--------------10-9-7------9-7----|
E|-----------------------------------7-9--------------------------7-9--------|

e|----------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------7----7--7--------|
D|---7-7h9----------------7--------7----9------9-7----|
A|-9---------9-5---9--------7----9--------------------|
E|--------------------7-9-----------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------6--7--9---6--------------------------|
D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---9---------------7/9~--------------------|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
