Verse 1:

Bm       E
You will move
     Bm    E
With me we will
      G
Stay still and
 G         F#
Words will     move around us.
    Bm         E
Surround us in gold
    Bm       E
And in our world
        G     F#
We will be    silent.



Bm        E
You will swim
   Bm      E
To me we will
    G
Be free
    G          F#
And words will   move around us
Bm              E
Surround us in schools
    Bm      E
And in our cool
      G    F#
We'll be reminded.


Chorus 1: (switch to 2/4 time [I think].. one, two, one two, one two)

       E5--F#5--G5      A5    Bm
That you     re-fuse to fade away
  Bm/A             E
I hide to stay the same

E5-- F#5-----G5    A5      G
      Where do we go from here
        D
I don't know.

    E5--F#5--G5       A5    Bm
For me     you flower to be chosen
  Bm/A               E
I fall down to be noticed
E5--F#     G5    A5
     Where do we go from

Bm (resume original 3/4 waltz time) E
here?                      I don't know...

Bm E

G  G
F# F#


Verse 2:

   Bm    E
It was a time
  Bm     E
A way of life
    G      G
The only secrets
    F#
We talked about
     Bm      E
Were all the fears
   Bm        E
In all these years
    G    F#
We spent     together


Chorus 2:  (2/4 time again)

       E5--F#5--G5      A5    Bm
That you     re-fuse to fade away
  Bm/A             E
I hide to stay the same

E5-- F#5-----G5    A5      G
      Where do we go from here
        D
I don't know.

    E5--F#5--G5       A5    Bm
For me     you flower to be chosen
  Bm/A               E
I fall down to be noticed
E5--F#     G5    A5       G
     Where do we go from here?
        D
I don't know...
(hold chord on D for a few seconds, then count down the next part with palm muted strings)

Very ending little bit

              pulloff            hammer
e--2--0----------------2--0-------------0--------|
B--------3--0----------------3--0--2/3-----------|
G--------------2/1--------------------------2----|
D------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------|

Also they're lightly playing some chords over this quiet bit at the ending acoustic 
melody.  I think it's:

Bm, Bm7, E, Em :: repeated twice then followed by a G and end on a quiet Bm



*****************************

Anyways, that's my attempt at acoustically chording up this beautiful and sad
song.  Rate if you liked it!  I love Blonde Redhead and I wish more of their songs
were playable fully on an acoustic guitar.  Enjoy!

Here's all the lyrics for your convenience.
______________________________________________

You will move
With me we will
Stay still and
Words will move around us.
Surround us in gold
And in our world
We will be silent.

You will swim
To me we will
Be free
And words will move around us
Swim around us
Surround us in schools
And in our cool
We'll be reminded.

That you refuse to fade away
I hide to stay the same
Where do we go from here
I don't know.
For me you flower to be chosen
I fall down to be noticed
Where do we go from here
I don't know...

It was a time
A way of life
The only secrets
We talked about
Were all the fears
In all these years
We spent together

That you refuse to fade away
I hide to stay the same
Where do we go from here
I don't know...
