Come A Little Closer - Cage the Elephant

For Strumming patterns and when to change chords please refer to the song:

N.P Sorry for any chords being slightly out with regards the word placing, the tab 
seems to re calibrate them when created.

[Intro:] C#m G#m F#m C#m

[Verse]

C#m                           G#m
Time shakes, found you at the water
                     F#m                              C#m
At first you were my father, now I love you like a brother
C#m                                        G#m
Earthquakes shake the dust behind you
                      F#m
This weather toss will blind you
                      C#m
Still not know, I seem blind

[Chorus]

A            F#m               C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A                    F#m                 C#m  
Things aren't always what they seem to be
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A        F#m                                C#m  
Do you understand the things that you would see here
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A       F#m                           C#m  
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming
A          F#m                C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem

F#5            G#5

[Verse]

C#m                                               G#m
Heartbreaks, that have me rest upon your shoulder
                         F#m                                    
Will you buy my...(?)
                         C#m
So now I know I found you there
C#m                     G#m
Uuuh, wanna see if you can change it,
F#m                           C#m
Change it, Still not know, I seem good

[Chorus]

A           F#m                  C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A                   F#m                  C#m  
Things aren't always what they seem to be 
A         F#m                                 C#m  
Do you understand the things that you would see here
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A         F#m                                              C#m  
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming
A          F#m                   C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem
A           F#m                   C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem

[Bridge]

In this section there isn't much rhythm guitar so I tend to just play alongside 
the bass roots with power chords (the "5"chords) when there isn't any rhythm guitar.

F#5
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo
A5
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo
F#5
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo
A5
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo
F#5
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo
A5       F#5     C#5     F#5 G#5
Ooooo

A5            F#m         C#m           F#5 G#5
Ten thousand people stand alone now
A5            F#m             C#m            
And in the evening the sun sets,
F#5     G#5       A5
Tomorrow it will rise

A5           F#m    C#m       F#5       G#5
Tiiiiiiiime fliiiiies byyyyyy, they all sing along
A5           F#m    C#m       F#5       G#5
Tiiiiiiiime fliiiiies byyyyyy, they all sing along
A5           F#m    C#m       F#5       G#5
Tiiiiiiiime fliiiiies byyyyyy, they all sing along
A5           F#m        C#m       F#5       G#5
Tiiiiiiiime fliiiiiiiies byyyyyyy, byyyyyyy

[Chorus]
A               F#m           C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A               F#m           C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem
A               F#m           C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem
A               F#m           C#m  
Come a little closer than you seem



Enjoy! Can't wait for the new album! - MrMusicManSaam

Perfect! The only thing that I see may be just a TAD off would be the A in the chorus and ending, but otherwise I think it's freaking awesome, although I may be wrong about the A sounding off. Great job.
