Marching Bands Of Manhattan

C		 G
If I could open my arms
D			  F
And span the length of the isle of Manhattan,
C		 	G
I'd bring it to where you are
D		      F
Making a lake of the East River and Hudson
C		   G
If I could open my mouth
D		   F
Wide enough for a marching band to march out
C				G
They would make your name sing
D				F
And bend through alleys and bounce off all the buildings.

F Am C D (x2)
  C			G
I wish we could open our eyes
D		    F
To see in all directions at the same time
C		   G
Oh what a beautiful view
D		           F
If you were never aware of what was around you
C			G
And it is true what you said
D		F	
That I live like a hermit in my own head
C			G
But when the sun shines again
D			 F
I'll pull the curtains and blinds to let the light in.
Chorus (x4)
F			Am
Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole
C			 D
Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound
F		 	Am
But while you debate half empty or half full
C	
It slowly rises, your love is gonna drown

F Am C D
Your love is gonna drown [4x]

Your love is gonna...
C (let note ring)

Soul Meets Body

Intro: Dm C (x2)
Dm		     C
I want to live where soul meets body
Dm			F
And let the sun wrap its arms around me
Dm			   F
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
      C				Dm
And feel, feel what its like to be new
			    F
Cause in my head there’s a greyhound station
Dm			      F
Where I send my thoughts to far off destinations
    Dm				F
So they may have a chance of finding a place
	C
where they’re far more suited than here
Dm F C (x4)

Dm			F
And I cannot guess what we'll discover
Dm				F
When we turn the dirt with our palms cupped like shovels
	Dm			F
But I know our filthy hands can wash one another’s
       C
And not one speck will remain

      Dm	 F	     C
And I do believe it’s true
		Dm	   F		C
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
	  Dm		F
But if the silence takes you
	C		Dm F C
Then I hope it takes me too
	Dm	F	C
So brown eyes I hold you near
		 Dm	            F    C
Cause you’re the only song I want to hear
	Dm	F	C			Dm F C
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
  	Dm		F Dm
Where soul meets body
	Dm
Where soul meets body
	Dm
Where soul meets body
      Dm	 F	     C
And I do believe it’s true
		Dm	   F		C
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
	  Dm		F
But if the silence takes you
	C		Dm F C
Then I hope it takes me too
	Dm	F	C
So brown eyes I hold you near
		 Dm	            F    C
Cause you’re the only song I want to hear
	Dm	F	C			
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
	Dm
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
	Dm
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
	Dm
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

Summer Skin

Intro:  C Bb Dm C Bb Dm C Bb Dm C Bb Dm C Bb
Dm	C	       Bb
Squeaky swings and tall grass 
	Dm	C	Bb
The longest shadows ever cast
 	Dm	C	Bb
The water's warm and children swim 
	Dm	C		Bb
And we frolicked about in our summer skin 
Dm	C	Bb
I don't recall a single care
 	Dm C	    Bb
Just greenery and humid air 
	Dm C	Bb
Then Labor day came and went 
	Dm		C	Bb
And we shed what was left of our summer skin 
Dm C Bb F C Bb (x2)

Dm		C	Bb
On the night you left I came over
 	Dm	    C			Bb
And we peeled the freckles from our shoulders 
	Dm	C	Bb
Our brand new coats so flushed and pink
	Dm	C	Bb
And I knew your heart I couldn't win
		Dm	C	   Bb
Cause the seasons change was a conduit 
	Dm	C	 Bb
And we left our love in our summer skin

Dm C Bb F C Bb (let ring)

Different Names For The Same Thing"
D Bb G D

D	    Bb	G	   D
Alone on a train aimless in wonder
	D	Bb	G	D
An outdated map crumbled in my pocket
      D	     Bb	          G		D
But I didn't care where I was going
		   Bm	  Bb		G	D
'Cause they're all different names for the same place.
	D	Bb		G		   D
The coast disappeared when the sea drowned the sun
	     D		B	   G   D
And I knew no words to share with anyone
	D	    Bb		G	D
The boundaries of language I quietly cursed
		Bm	F	    G	D
And all the different names for the same things 

Bm F# G D
D (for what seems like an eternity)
	    Bm		F	G	D
There are different names for the same things

There are different names for the same things...

"I Will Follow You Into The Dark"
Intro: Dm F Bb F F/E Dm F C Dm F A7 Dm C Bb Dm F

F			Dm
Love of mine some day you will die
	  Bb
But I'll be close behind
	F	        C
I'll follow you into the dark
	F			Dm
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
		Bb
Just our hands clasped so tight
	F		C
Waiting for the hint of a spark
   Dm		    F
If Heaven and Hell decide
	  Bb	    F  F/E
That they both are satisfied
Dm		F		C
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
   Dm		F
If there's no one beside you
	     A7	Dm C
When your soul embarks
         Bb	Bbm	   F
Then I'll follow you into the dark
	F			Dm
In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
	Bb			F	C
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
	Bb		       Dm
And I held my tongue as she told me
		Bb
"Son fear is the heart of love"
	F	C
So I never went back
   Dm		    F
If Heaven and Hell decide
	  Bb	     F F/E
That they both are satisfied
Dm		F	    C
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
   Dm		F
If there's no one beside you
	     A7	Dm  C
When your soul embarks
         Bb	Bbm	   F
Then I'll follow you into the dark
F			Dm
You and me have seen everything to see
		 Bb
From Bangkok to Calgary
	F		C	F
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
		Dm
The time for sleep is now
		Bb
It's nothing to cry about
	       F			C
Cause we'll hold each other soon
	Dm	Bb
The blackest of rooms
   Dm		    F
If Heaven and Hell decide
	  Bb	     F F/E
That they both are satisfied
Dm		F	    C
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
   Dm		F
If there's no one beside you
	     A7	Dm  C
When your soul embarks
         Bb	Bbm	   F
Then I'll follow you into the dark
         Bb	Bbm	   F (let ring)
Then I'll follow you into the dark

"Your Heart Is An Empty Room"
Intro: C

C	Em		Am	    Em	 F
Burn it down till the embers smoke on the ground
	C Em		Am	        Em    F
And start new when your heart is an empty room
	Am	  Em	   F
With walls of the deepest blue
C

C	Em	       Am		Em	F
Home's face: how it ages when you're away
C	Em		Am	Em	  F
Spring blooms and you find the love that's true
	Am		Em	F
But you don't know what now to do
	     Am	      Em	     F
Cause the chase is all you know
	Am		Em	F
And she stopped running months ago
C
        F		C
And all you see
      F			A
Is where else you could be
	Em	F
When you're at home
       F	          C
Out on the street
	F		A
Are so many possibilities
     E	   F
To not be alone

A Em F (x4)
Em
	C	Em	A		Em  F
The flames and smoke climbed out of every window
        C	      Em		A	       Em		F
And disappeared with everything that you held dear
	Am	     Em	   F		Am	     Em	   F
And you shed not a single tear for the things that you didn't need
		Am	    Em	F
'Cause you knew you were finally free
C

	F	C	F		    Am	       Em		F
'Cause all you see is where else you could be when you're at home
C
       F		C	F		Am     Em   F
Out on the street are so many possibilities to not be alone

When you're at home

"Someday You Will Be Loved"
Intro: Gm
   Gm		Bb
I once knew a girl
	D#	   Gm
In the years of my youth
	Gm	   Bb
With eyes like the summer
	C
All beauty and truth
	Gm	Bb
In the morning I fled
	D#	Gm
Left a note and it read
Gm		Dm	Gm
Someday you will be loved.
    Gm	Bb		D#	Gm
I cannot pretend that I felt any regret
	Gm		Bb	C
Cause each broken heart will eventually mend
	Gm	   Bb		D#	   Gm
As the blood runs red down the needle and thread
Gm		Dm	Gm
Someday you will be loved
	Gm 		Bb
You'll be loved you'll be loved
	D#		Gm
Like you never have known
	Gm	  Bb
The memories of me
	    C
Will seem more like bad dreams
	Gm	Bb
Just a series of blurs
	D#
Like I never occurred
Gm		D#	Gm
Someday you will be loved
Bb D# Gm Bb C Gm

      Gm		Bb		D#	 Gm
You may feel alone when you're falling asleep
	Gm	Bb	C
And everytime tears roll down your cheeks
	Gm		Bb	D#			Gm
But I know your heart belongs to someone you've yet to meet
Gm		Dm	Gm
Someday you will be loved
	Gm 		Bb
You'll be loved you'll be loved
	D#		Gm
Like you never have known
	Gm	  Bb
The memories of me
	    C

Someday you will be loved

F#5 F E5 D#

Like I never occurred

Someday you will be loved
Gm		D#	Gm (let ring)
Someday you will be loved

"Crooked Teeth"
Capo on 1st Fret
F   Bb		C#	G#	     F	Bb	  C#	G#
It was one hundred degrees, as we sat beneath a willow tree,
	F	   Bb		C#	      G#		F	Bb    C# G#
Who's tears didn't care, they just hung in the air, and refused to fall, to fall.
F	Bb		C#	G#
And I knew I'd made a horrible call,
	F	    Bb		  C#	G#
And now the state line felt like the Berlin wall,
	F	   Bb			C
And there was no doubt about which side I was on.

F 	Bb C# G#
hmmm....
F5	Em	     D#		C
Cause I built you a home in my heart,
	F5   Em		D#		Bb
With rotten wood, it decayed from the start.
	      C#		G#	D#
Cause you can't find nothing at all,
	C#	      G#		D#
If there was nothing there all along.
	C#	G#	       D#
No you can't find nothing at all,
	C#	       G#		D#
If there was nothing there all along.

F Bb C# G# (x2)

F   Bb	   C#		G#
I braved treacherous streets,
        F		Bb	C#	    G#
And kids strung out on homemade speed.
	F	 Bb		C#	G#
And we shared a bed in which I could not sleep,
     F	    Bb		C#   G#
At all, woo, hoo, woo, hooOoOo.
F	   Bb	    C#	  G#
Cause at night the sun in retreat,
	  F	Bb	  C#	  G#
Made the skyline look like crooked teeth,
	F	Bb		C#  G#		F Bb C# G#
In the mouth of a man who was devouring, us both.
F5	   Em		      D#		C
You're so cute when you're slurring your speech,
	      F5		Em	    Bb
But they're closing the bar and they want us to leave.
	  C#	    G#	      D#
And you can't find nothing at all,
	C#	      G#	       D#
If there was nothing there all along.
	C#	  G#	     D#
No you can't find nothing at all,
	C#	      G#	       D#
If there was nothing there all along.
Bb	  	C
I'm a war, of head versus heart,
	F	     Bb
And it's always this way.
      Bb			C
My head is weak, my heart always speaks,
	F	     Bb
Before I know what it will say.
C# G D# (x4)

	  C#	    G#	      D#
And you can't find nothing at all,
	C#	      G#	       D#
If there was nothing there all along.
	C#	  G#	     D#
No you can't find nothing at all,
	C#	      G#	       D#
If there was nothing there all along.
	  C#	    G#	      D#
And you can't find nothing at all,
	C#	      G#	       D#
If there was nothing there all along.
		C#	G#		D#
There were churches, theme parks and malls,
		C#	G#	D#
But there was nothing there all along.

"What Sarah Said"

F G Am E F G Am E F G A E F G Am E
	F			G	   Am		E
And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to father time
	F			G	Am		E
As I stared at my shoes in the ICU that reeked of piss and 409
	F			G			Am		E
And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself that I'd already taken too much today
	F			G			Am   E
As each descending peak on the LCD took you a little farther away from me
F		G Am E
Away from me

F G Am E
		F				G	      Am			E
Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines in a place where we only say goodbye
		F			G		Am		E
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds
		F			G			Am	E
But I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never lain beside at all
		F		G			Am	E
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground as the TV entertained itself
	D		  C			Am E
'Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
	D		F	    A	   E
Just nervous pacers bracing for bad news
		D			C		    A	E
And then the nurse comes round and everyone will lift their heads
	D		F		A		F		C
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said that "Love is watching someone die"
F C F G C
	F	    G		C  E F
So who's going to watch you die?..


"Brothers On A Hotel Bed"

Intro: G# Cm D# G# G# Cm D# G#
         G# Cm D# G# G# Cm D# G#
         Bb B C Bb G#
         G# Cm D# G# G# Cm D# G#
G#		   Cm		D#		G#
You may tire of me as our December sun is setting because I'm not who I used to be
       G#			Cm			D#	 G#
No longer easy on the eyes but these wrinkles masterfully disguise
		Bb	G#			Cm
The youthful boy below who turned your way and saw 
		    D#	G#
Something he was not looking for: both a beginning and an end 
G#		    Cm		     D#		G#
But now he lives inside someone he does not recognize 
			        Bb			G
When he catches his reflection on accident 
G# Cm D# G#

G#			Cm
On the back of a motor bike 
		D#			  G#
With your arms outstretched trying to take flight 

Leaving everything behind 
G#			Cm		    D#			G#
But even at our swiftest speed we couldn't break from the concrete 
			Bb
In the city where we still reside. 
G#		Cm		D#		G#
And I have learned that even landlocked lovers yearn for the sea like navy men 
G#			Cm		D#		G#
Cause now we say goodnight from our own separate sides 
		        Bb	D#
Like brothers on a hotel bed 
			D#
Like brothers on a hotel bed 
			D#
Like brothers on a hotel bed 
			D#  Bb
Like brothers on a hotel bed

G# Cm D# G#
G# Cm D# G#

G#		   Cm		D#		G#
You may tire of me as our December sun is setting because I'm not who I used to be

"Stable Song"

Intro: G C D G C Em G F#m E C G F E G
G		C   Am
Time for the final bout
G		C	Am
Rows of deserted houses
G	F	 E	      C	G
All our stable mates highway bound
G		C	Am
Give us our measly sum
G	     C	Am	G	F
Getting the air inside my lungs is heavenly
E	C G	F		E	C	D E C D E
Starting out with nothing but crippling doubt
C       D     Em     B    C G
We'll rest easy justified
	     C	Am    C		C	     Am
Suffered a swift defeat, i'll endure countless repeats
       G	    F		E 	C
The gift of memory is an awful curse
	F	E	    C	       D		C  G A
With age it just gets much worse, but i won't mind
D            C   G A
I won't mind
D            C   G A
I won't mind
D            C   G C Am G
I won't mind
