A Diamond and a Tether
Artist:Death Cab For Cutie

Listen to the song for the timing, it has a few odd pauses or extra beats
for some of the chords. Hope you enjoy!

G    C              G   C
Pity,  take pity on me
                Am                C        G
Because I'm not half the man that I should be
           G       C    G    C
I'm always turning   to run
         Am              C      G
From the people I should not be afraid of
    G        C            G     C
And darling,   you should know
            Am        C           G 
That I have fantasies about being alone
                    G         C  
It's like love is a lesson
             G        C   
That I can't learn
              Am               C             G       
So I make the same mistakes at each familiar turn



Chorus:
                 
                 Em       C          G            
I know you can't hold out forever
             Em            C         G       D         
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
       Em            C
From a boy who won't swim
          B7          Em
Who won't dip his toe in
        A7       C         G
Just to keep you here with him



              G    C  G      C
I've got this habit   I abhor
           Am              C            G       G
When we go out, I'm always watching the door

              G      C              G      C
As if there's someone  I'm going to see
              Am                 C         G     
Who could out-do the things that you do to me



                 Em       C          G
I know you can't hold out forever
             Em            C         G       D
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
       Em            C
From a boy who won't fly
          B7          Em
Who won't take to the skies
       A7           C             G
If he thinks you're about to say goodbye

( Instrumental break )


G    C              G   C
Pity,  take pity on me
              Am                C        G
cause I'm not half the man that I should be
            G        C             G         C
And I don't blame you,  you've had enough
               Am           C               G
With all these empty promises and countless bluffs

                 Em          C       G
I know you can't hold out forever
             Em            C          G     D
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
       Em            C
From a boy who won't jump
          B7       Em
When he's falls in love
        A7              C           Em
He just stands with his toes on the edge
       A7              C         G
And he waits for it to disappear again
