SERENA - Duncan Sheik

Notes:

-Intro starts with slow up strum on chords;
-verses are basically arpeggios of chords on 1/8th notes (4-4 beat);
-For the D4(?) keep the C shape and move up two frets with 4th and 6th
strings
 open AND/OR the D4 is occasionally played as Bm or D4 with a Bm by the
bass
(I've indicated where);
-A9 is 002200
-You could sub Cmaj7 for C wherever

Intro Em C D4 A9 C Bm Bm/F#

So  what [Em] life's rough [C] You should get o[D4]ver yourself
Like ev[A9]eryone else and enjoy[C] The girls and the boys[Bm]
And every[Bm/F#]thing in between [Em] Seren[C]a, in an effort[D4/Bm]to
avoid
the things [A9] that annoy you you hide[C]- far far away[Bm]
And life [Bm/F#] just passes you by

bridge: Em C Bm A9 C Bm Bm/F#   (with electric riff over)


Are you gonna give up[Em] are you gonna give out[C]
Ain't [D4]that a shame You've got no[A9] one to blame
But your conscience [C] If it doesn't make[Bm]sense
I know [Bm/F#]that only too well [Em] So tell [C]me
Did it happen[D4/Bm] one day When the day[A9] that you faced
Wasn't happen[C]ing It just didn't bring[Bm]
A[Bm/F#]nything more, Anything more than despair

Chorus:

Em C D4 A9 Se[C]rena Bm Bm/F#
Se [Em] rena C Bm A9 Se [C] rena Bm Bm/F#


Do you remem [Em] ber, morning would come [C]
And just [D4/Bm]like a child filled [A9]with the sun
And the hours[C] never seemed [Bm]long
Where [Bm/F#]have those days gone?[Em] Beyond [C]us...
Or so you [D4]would believe But I [A9]can't agree,
those illusions[C] Will you ever get through[Bm] them
And find [Bm/F#]the diamond, Find the diamond inside

Chorus

then repeat 4X jam on chorus (use Bm for D4 on 3d rep),
while solo guitar and vocal use "nuh Na nuh-na Naa na
(E G A-B B A)" riff over chords

end with four Bm/F#
