Rooftops and Invitations
by Dashboard Confessional
From the album Dusk and Summer.
Tabbed by Carl C. (CCon2284@yahoo.com)


By request, Rooftops and Invitations, 
as you know I don't have a musical ear, 
so if there are chord changes missing please forgive me. 
It seems too simple to me, 
the KISS principle says to "keep it simple, stupid" so here it goes...
listen to the song to get the timings down.


Tuning: Half Step Down (D# G# C# F# A# D#)
Key of D#
{D#  F  G  G#  Bb  C  D  D#}

		
CHORDS		EADGBE (Half step down)

INTRO:
A#add11 Gm  G#add9 x4

VERSE 1:

A#add11				  D#5
the first time you looked at her curves you were hooked
	A#add11				D#5    Gm(barred) G#add9   A#add11
and the glances you took, took hold of you and demanded that you stay
    				   D#5
and sunk in their teeth, bit your heart and released
	A#add11			     D#5	   G#add9	 Gm(barred) G#add9
such a charge that you need another touch, another taste, another fix

CHORUS:

A#add11			D#5
she just might get you lost
	Cm7		      D#5
and she just might leave you torn
	A#add11		      D#5
but she just might save your soul
		      Gmadd11	 	D#5
if she gets you when she gets you any closer

A#add11  Gm  G#add9 x2

VERSE 2:

A#add11				D#5			  A#add11
she leads you up, points out skylines and stars, steeple chases in bars
		D#5	Gm(barred) G#add9	 A#add9
and took your keys and demanded that you stay
			D#5
the city longs well for rooftops and invitations
A#add11					    G#add9	   Gm(barred) G#add9
all lace in secret places, she moves you to touch with her hands

CHORUS:

A#add11			D#5
she just might get you lost
	Cm7		      D#5
and she just might leave you torn
	A#add11		      D#5
but she just might save your soul
		      Gmadd11	 	D#5
if she gets you when she gets you any closer

BRIDGE:
G#		Cm			  D#sus2	    Cm	     G#
under the cold sheet, where the welcomed touch of skin and skin will meet
	    Cm			 D#sus2
out on the inside where a girls prize is at the tip of your tongue
A#		      D#sus2		  Csus2	   D#sus2
where every move and each impulse brings clarity
A#		      D#sus2		  Csus2	   D#sus2
to stay like this is everything you'll ever need

CHORUS:

A#add11			D#5
she just might get you lost
	Cm7		      D#5
and she just might leave you torn
	A#add11		      D#5
but she just might save your soul
		      Gmadd11	 	D#5
if she gets you when she gets you any closer
A#add11			D#5
she just might get you lost
	Cm7		      D#5
and she just might leave you torn
	A#add11		      D#5
but she just might save your soul
		      Gmadd11	 	D#5
if she gets you when she gets you any closer

OUTRO:

G#add9	Gm
can you believe your eyes?...

A#add11  Gm  G#add9 x2

-end on A#add11-

Awesome tab brotha. Just for additions: This is the little electric fill at the beginning that gets repeated over and over in the beginning.

eb|------11h12----------11----|
Bb|-------------12--14--------|
Gb|---------------------------|
Db|---------------------------|
Ab|---------------------------|
Eb|---------------------------|

Than every once in a while during the above riff another part is played and it sounds like:

eb|---------------------------|
Bb|---------------------------|
Gb|--6/8--8h9^p8--------------|
Db|---------------------------|
Ab|---------------------------|
Eb|---------------------------|

^= Give the 9 a slight bend

Great Tab. Great Band. Great Song.
