I Was a Kaleidoscope
(Acoustic Version)

Death Cab for Cutie

 

Intro: / A - - - / D – Asus2 - / E – Esus4 - / D - - - / (x2)

 

A                    D     Asus2

    I put on my overcoat and

E                 Esus4         D

walked into winter - my teeth chattered rhythms

A                                          D             Asus2
   And they were grouped in twos or threes, like a

E                   Esus4         D

Morse code message was sent from me to

A                                     D                  Asus2

Me.  And cars on slippery slopes were stuck: people

E                                Esus4      D

pushing through their mittens as I was beginning

A                              D               Asus2

   to feel it soaking through my shoes, getting

E                Esus4   D (x2 measures)
colder with every step i took to your apartment, dear.

Riff 1

 

A                         D     Asus2
    And I was a kaleidoscope: the

   E              Esus4      D

snow on my lenses distorting the image

A                            D       Asus2

    of what was only one of you and I

E                 Esus4        D (x2 measures)

didn't know which one to address as all your lips moved

(w/Riff 1)
and this is when I forget breathe

and all the things I scripted, they sound unfounded.
And the look that you're giving me,

That tells me exactly what you are thinking:
D7/6

"This ain't working anymore."

 

Repeat Intro


D5
They got their mothers worked into a panic

B5
sledding down hills into oncoming traffic

        D5
the parents layered clothes until the children couldn't move and then

B5

left them outside ‘til their noses were blue and

F#5   Dm/maj7

I got left there, too.

/ A - - - / D – Asus2 - / E – Esus4 - / D - - - /


A                    D     Asus2

    I put on my overcoat and

E                 Esus4         D

walked into winter - my teeth chattered rhythms

A                                          D               Asus2
   And they were grouped in twos or threes, like a

E                   Esus4         D5 (x4 measures)

Morse code message was sent from me to

so, this tab has been on another website for months. it's the exact same. even claiming that there's a riff one when theres not. if you actually figured out this tab you get props for that because it's pretty damn accurate. but if you didn't then you should point that out and not claim someone else's work.

haha what a spaz... all tabs in the world are someone else's work, who cares who posts them to UG. The tabber should
be B. Gibbard.
