Bright Eyes - Southern State

This is the version from the live album Motion Sickness released late 2005.
Well...it's supposed to be...


         F          
Well the songs you sung spiraled
    Am
And hung 'round like echoes 
  Bb                 C
Or ripples on a pond

       F
So you circled the globe
        Am
Spent a year on the road
      Bb           C
Without ever going home

            F
More than a couple of days, 
           Am
Then you’d leave right away
        Bb               C
Run to a girl you barely know

        F
But you like how she sings
        Am
And you can’t help but think
            Bb                  C 
That there’s something that she knows and could teach you

Bb                              C
  While you’re sleeping in that southern state
Bb                               C
  Where the bars are filled with people you can’t hate
    Bb
But try as you try
    C
You still can’t relate to them 
        Bb                     C
And you drink that whiskey down
               Am
As they ask you, 

                 C       F           
“Are you who you say you are?”
                Bb               F
Are you who you say that you are?
                Bb                C
Are you who you say that you are, you…
                Bb               F
Are you who you say that you are?
                Bb      F    E Bb
Are you who you say you are?
              C
The fact that you can’t tell makes us like you even more

              F 
So now you’re trying again
        Am
Or just visiting friends
      Bb                   C
One had just had his heart broke

              F 
For the first time in his life
       Am
He realized there are times
        Bb              C
When you can’t make it alone

               F  
But now you’re giving advice
      Am  
As if you had the right
   Bb               C  
To use a word like “love”

         F
It’s a negotiable term
          Am
What gets said’s not what’s heard
        Bb                 C     
So it’s different then for everyone

                Bb                  C
But you're still hanging ‘round that college town
        Bb                          C
With your…your new life your new lover you’ve found 
           Bb                      C
And you’re keeping her up at night, bringing her down
                 Bb                  C
She’ll watch you drink yourself to death
    Am
But won’t ask you, 

         C               F
“is this really what you want?”
        Bb              F
Is this really what you want?
           Bb                   C
Is this really what you is this what...
           Bb             F
Is this really what you want?
        Bb               F    E Bb
Is this really what you want?
             C                                                F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because it’s all you’ve got?
             Bb                           C                   F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because it’s all you’ve got?
                               Bb
Yeah that’s it, I think you’re sticking with me now 
        C
Because I’m all you’ve got

F, Am, Bb, C until end over...

go-ot, no...i'm all you go-ot, go-ot no, go-ot no...



ooo, that Conor eh?
