About this tab version
It's a studio version from What Went Down by Foals, this is the full tab with both guitars from Yannis and Jimmy. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
[Yannis and Jimmy]
I buried my heart in a hole in the ground
With the lights and the roses and the cowards down-town
They threw me a party there was no one around
They tried to call my girl but she could not be found

[Verse 1]
[Yannis and Jimmy]
I buried my guilt in a pit in the sound
With the rust and the vultures and the trash down-town
So don't step to me, kid you'll never be found
'Cos while you were sleeping I took over your town

[Verse 2]
[Yannis and Jimmy]

I fell for a girl with a port-wine stain
I knew her initials but never her name
I tried and I tried and I was never the same
So no long for love and I'm forever changed

[FINAL CHORUS]
[Jimmy]

When I see a man I see a lion
When I see a man I see a lion
You're the apple of my eye of my eye of my eye
You're the apple of my eye of my I want 'ya
I give up my money give up my name take it away
I give it away I give it away I give it
I'm a sycophantic animal, I'm a sycophant fool, I'm a sycophantic fool I know,
Break up the chain, I'm breaking up the chain I'm breaking
Give it away, give it away, I give it
When I see a man I see a lion
When I see a man I see a lion
You're the apple of my eye of my eye of my eye
You're the apple of my eye of my I want 'ya
Give up my money, give up my name, take it away
I give it away I give it away I give it
See you again I see you again I see ya
Give it away, I give it away, I give it
When I fell low, When I fell low, I fell it
When I see a man I see a lion
When I see a man I see a lion
You're the apple of my eye of my eye of my eye
You're the apple of my eye of my I want 'ya
