Artist: Dashboard Confessional
Song: The Best Deceptions

Tuning: Half-step down, Drop Db
           Db Ab Db Gb Bb eb

Note: The actual song is in open D tuning, half-step down, (Db Ab Db F Ab Db), but if 
like me, and much too lazy to tune your guitar like that every time you want to play the

I   heard     about        your trips
I   heard     about        your souvenirs
I   heard     about        the  cool breeze and the cool nights and the
Cool guys              that you spent them with
I guess I should've heard of them from you
I guess I should've heard of them from you

 Char-------ade       is                 over

I   heard     about             your regrets
I   heard that  you were feeling sorry
I   heard  from someone that     you        wish   you  could
Set things      right     between us
I guess I should've heard of them from you
I guess I should've heard of them from you

I'm waiting for blood, To flow to my fingers,

I'll be alright when my hands get

Warm. Ignoring the phone, I'd rather say nothing,
               G/B             A/D
I'd rather you never heard my voice

You're calling too late, To late to be gracious

And you do not warrant long goodbyes

You're calling too late, You're calling too late

You're calling too la----ate.
