Language or the Kiss -- Emily Sailers
-------------------------------------
[drop C/D tuning, no capo]
[Firstly, the high e string needs to be tuned down to c.(should be the same when
you put your finger on the first frett of the B string, so use that to tune)
Then tune the low E string to D.]

Into: [x2]

i don’t know if it was real or in a dream      
lately waking up i’m not sure where i’ve been 
there was a table set for six and five were there 
i stood outside and kept my eyes upon that empty chair

and there was steam on the windows from the kitchen
laughter like a language i once spoke with ease 
but i’m made mute by the virtue of decision 
i choose most of your life goes on without me 

D9               F6(9)      Gsus
oh the fear i’ve known 
C                                A7
that i might reap the praise of strangers 
D9               Gsus
and end up on my own 
D9                  F6(9)
all i’ve sown was a song 
Gsus
but maybe i was wrong 

i said to you the one gift which i’d adore
unwrap a package of the next 10 years unfolding 
but you told me if i had my way i’d be bored 
right then i knew i loved you best born of your scolding 

when we last talked we were lying on our backs 
looking up at the sky through the ceiling 
i used to lie like that alone out on the driveway 
trying to read the greek upon the stars the alphabet of feeling 

oh i knew back then 
it was a calling that said if joy then pain 
the sound of the voice these years later 
is still the same

i am alone in a hotel room tonight 
i squeeze the sky out but there’s not a star appears 
begin my studies with this paper and this pencil 
and i’m working through the grammar of my fears 

mercy what i won’t give 
to have the things that mean the most
not to mean the things i miss 
unforgiving the choice still is 
the language or the kiss 

Chords Used:
------------
D9:     x00232
Gsus:   5x0030
F6(9):  3x0010
C:      x32010
C#sus9: x02020

*Note*
 - p means pull off
 - h means hammer on
 - / means slide
 - the hammer on and pull off technique is kind of like rocking your 
   finger back and forth. Just hammer on and pull off. (10p9h10p9)

Hey, this is Steph. I made a mistake when I tabbed this song. The A7 I had
x02020, but it should be x0202x. It makes a difference, because if you have the last string playing, it sounds really crappy because of the drop C tuning. Thats all!
