The Past Recedes

Artist:John Frusciante
Album: Curtains (2005)

Tabbed by: Kaiv
Capo: No
Tuning: Standard


Intro:
G - D - Am - Em (3x)

G - D - Am

Verse:
G            D     Am       Em
And then the past recedes
G           D  Am           Em
And I won't be involved
G           D       Am    Em
The effort to be free
G               D     Am
Seems pointless from above
G              D       Am       Em
You're looking down at me
G          D    Am      Em
I'd rather stay below
G                     D     Am   Em
Than have you staring up at me
G            D       Am  B
Is nowhere I want to go
C        D7              Em             D
Ay, this business of how long we try to stay alive
C      D7                  Em 
Why to be here you first got to die
D
So I gave it a try
    C           G
And what do you know
            Am      D7
Time was so long ago
G               D        Am    Em
And things come back you see
G             D     Am     Em
To where they don't belong
G         D       Am    Em
And every drop of sea 
G      D           Am B      
Is the whole ocean
  C           D7
I lied to the greatest thieves
      Em           D   
About anything and everything
C     D7           Em
I'm a figure of forgotten speech
D
I'm out of reach 
C               G 
I can't play it safe
            Am          D7 
But I might just in case

Verse:
C    D7            Em
I'm disguised as a reaching hand
D
I'm a working man
  C         D7 
I dont understand why clockout
Em            D
Comes so slow every time
       C          G            Am
That's one line I stay right behind
       C          G            Am    B
That's one line I stay right behind

Outro:
G D Am Em (x3)

G D Am B  G
