Standard Tuning (EADGBe)


chord 'F#1' means 'one octave higher'


[verse 1]

  F#
I used to be a king alone
     C#         
Like Solomon or Rehoboam
    F#
And in the eaves the corvidae
    C#
did jealous keep my picture frames
    Fm             G#         C#
and everything did oxidate in place


[verse 2 with different ending]

    F# 
But then you came, a single cell
     C#
with astrolabe and carousel
    F#
and algebra and symmetry
    C#
and none of this was lost on me
    B B     F#1     B     B   F#1     F#
and I could see how still I'd been before
   B B     F#1  B B     F#1       F#                        
If I don't eat, I don't sleep at all.


[bridge 1]

                 B
Like limbs in procession,
             Dm#
like so many birds,
                B
stampeding like oxen,
                 Dm#
our hearts are a herd,


[chorus 1]

                   C#
I loved you in the bed,
                   Dm#                C#
I loved you in the best way possible,
                   Dm#
I loved you in the bed,


[bridge 2]

F#              Bb          B
Did you see the light in my heart?
Did you see the sweat on my brow?
Did you see the fear in my heart?
Did you see me bleeding it out?


[chorus 2 and end]

                   C#
I loved you in the bed,
                   Dm#                C#
I loved you in the best way possible,
                   Dm#                B
I loved you in the best way possible,
                   Dm#                C#
I loved you in the best way possible,
                   Dm#                B
I loved you in the best way possible,
                            F#
I loved you in the bed.

The making of sharps and stuff is a little more complicated than it needs to be, just use a capo :) But apart from that, the actual tune is great - thanks!

The chords are shweeeet! I just use capo 1 but still, nice work :) I thought the lyrics were 'I loved you in the best' not 'in the bed' tho. But that's pretty irrelevant :) much appreciated!

Amazing song.
