      We Looked Like Giants (Acoustic Version) - Death Cab For Cutie
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

This is pretty close to how Ben Gibbard plays it.

Capo: 2nd Fret (all chords are relative to capo)

Verse:

Am
God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime

C                               G 
Remembering when you were mine, In a still suburban town

Am
When every thursday I'd brave those mountain passes

C                                  G
And you'd skip your early classes, And we'd learn how our bodies worked.


*Repeat intro*

Am
God damn the black night with all it's foul temptation

C                             G
I become what I always hated, When I was with you then

Am
We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact

C                         G
Fumbling to make contact, As the others slept inside


Chorus:

Am                  F
And together there, In a shroud of frost, the mountain air

G
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass

Am                    F                      G       E     
And I held you closer than anyone would ever get


*Repeat Intro*
G
Do you remember the JAMC? And reading aloud from magazines

G
I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me

F
I've never been too good with secrets.

G    F
No...


Am                  F
And together there, In a shroud of frost, the mountain air

G
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass

F
And I held you closer...

There are a couple ways to play this one.  This one seems to be the easiest and
most accurate for me.
ENJOY!
