There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a b side song of Julian Casablancas' I think he did it using acoustic 
guitar, piano and an organ of some kind.  It's a great song if you can find it 
somewhere to buy. I recommend it. Enjoy the tab.

Standard tuning.

Chords by JustinS03


Intro: C-Am-F-Em-G

  C
I see a drug bust in your eyes
          F                C
There are bruises on your thighs
        F                  C              F      Am        G
I can tell you’re trying to hide, all the darkness in your mind
    C                        
You got saw dust on your toes
          F                   C
From that sports bar down the road
          F                   C            F      Am      G
You have beer glass in your feet, you say kiss me on the cheek

     C                      
Some people get paid to talk
      F                  C
Some people get paid to listen
      F               C            F      Am       G
Some people buy a ticket and can’t wait for intermission

     C                              
Just like some will love you blindly
      F                   C
Some will love you with conditions
      F                    C                  F    Am    G
Some will love you like an unborn child loves family tradition

   C
Now she is tainted by the syringe
          F                  C   
Trying to rhyme a word with orange
        F               C                 F    Am   G
I’m a cheap and ugly sinner, to who soul love is foreign

              F  
So if you’re sideways
                    C
And if you wanna go my way
                    G
Before a meteoric shower
                               C
Decides the earth should be devoured
                               F
Whether you’re locked up in a tower
                           C
Or you’re charging by the hour
                           G
In mama’s eyes you are a flower
                                    C
Forget the after taste if life got sour
                           F
Will you finish what you started
                           C
Travel the seas you never parted
                          G
Remember things you disregarded
                        C
Communicate with the departed
                                       F
Believe in things you thought weren’t founded
                        C
Prepare to always be astounded
                                  G 
Or keep your dreams and visions grounded
                            C 
It took a while but then I found it.

  C                        
No one inspired you in time
        F                C
So you left your love behind
       F                 C                   F       Am      G
In a world that can discourage one who is young and full of courage

   C
You said you’d start at the bottom
    F                       C 
But instead you start at the top
    F                     C                    F     Am        G
Be careful what you wish for because on your lap it might just drop

   C
So it’s a lonely life at the bottom
       F                  C 
Can be lonely too at the top
       F                  C             F        Am      G   
Make sure your heart is singing right until the day it stops

    C    
They’ll say dream but what they mean
   F                C
Is be specific or obscene
     F                 C                F         Am       G
It’s time to find some time to fail at what makes you most happy

    C  
Sometimes you concentrate on lovers
    F                  C
To forget everything else
    F                  C           F       Am      G
Sometimes you hate each other to forget you hate yourself

              F
So if you’re sideways
                      C 
And if you wanna come my way
                    G
Before a meteoric shower 
                               C
Decides the earth should be devoured 
                                F
Whether you’re locked up in the tower
                              C
Or if you charge 'em by the hour
                             G
To me you’ll always be a flower
                                    C
Forget the after taste if life got sour
                          F
Will you finish what you started
                                C 
Before you celebrate with a cigar lit
                          G
Remember things you disregarded
                        C
Communicate with the departed
                        F
Prepare to always be astounded 
                                       C
Believe in things you thought weren’t founded
                                      G
Don’t keep those dreams and visions grounded
                           C 
It took a while but now I found it.

Outro:  C-Am-F-C-G  C-F-Am-G
