We Looked like Giants (acoustic)

Am
god bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
C
remembering when you were mine
G
in a still suburban town

Am
when every thursday i'd brave those mountain passes
C
and you'd skip your early classes
G
and we'd learn how our bodies worked

Am
god damn the black night with all its foul temptations
C
i've become what i always hated
G
when i was with you then

Am
we looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
C
fumbling to make contact
G
as the others slept inside

Am
and together there
F
in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
G
began to pass from every pane of weathered glass

Am
and i held you closer
C                      F    E
than anyone would ever get

i've never been too good with secrets

Good tab, a couple things...

When I play it on my string and compare it to the recording, it sounds like it should be: (moved down 1 string for the first part)

E|--------------|--------------|---000000|-----------|
B|--------------|--------------|---010101|--1313-----|
G|--5p4---------|--5p4---------|---000000|--0000-----|
D|-----5\2p02---|-----5\2p02---|2--222222|--0000-----|
A|0-------------|0-------------|3--333333|2-22220h2h3|
E|--------------|--------------|---------|3-3333-----|

Also, I think live, at the end of some of the verses he throws in the 0h2h3 on the A strong in after playing the G (after "when I was with you," for example).

And near the outro, he plays a little riff while playing the chords:

E|--0---0---0----|
B|---3---3---3---|
G|----0---0---0--|

slowdescent: I think it sounds good with G instead of F. Might not be right but it sounds good all the same.
