Time Lapse Lifeline -- Maria Taylor

Personal tab based on her NPR performance (the second of three songs): 
www.npr.org/event/music/105784450/maria-taylor-tiny-desk-concert.

Standard tuning, no capo. Steady eighth-note strumming, stress 2nd & 4th beats more
strongly than 1st & 3rd. Simplify as needed; gaps in tab are not rests, just trying to
separate the chord groups to show strumming pattern. "x" = muted strum.

Intro/Verse:                | early to Chorus
  C#m      C#m/A    E       | 4th time: G#       A

Chorus (really stress 2 & 4 after C#m):

*********************************************************************

Keeping up, keeping up with the time lapse lifeline  C#m, C#m/A, E
And they can run, they can run from the font to the last rights
And we can hear, we can hear the first beat to the flatline
I'm keeping up, keeping up with the time lapse lifeline
And once it's done  G#, A

Chorus:
Oh we dreamed a life                                 C#m
It was just like that, was just like that            A
And just like that, and just like that, It's done    E, A

Back it up, back it up, stop, fast-forward, rewind   C#m, C#m/A, E
Watch the sun, watch the moon, taking turns in the same sky
And you were dead as the leaves, now you're new like the spring time
Back it up, back it up, stop, fast-forward, rewind
And once it's done                                   G#, A

Chorus x2

Bridge:
And still we stand with the help of a                C#m
Steady hand, Capture images,                         C#m/A
A boy, a man, until it's                             E
Done                                                 G#
And seven years combined it's just a flicker of a    C#m
Neon sign, Little negatives of                       C#m/A
Hopes refined Until they're                          E
Done, or we're done                                  G#, A

Chorus x3 (Slowing, mostly a capella last time)

End C#m: 046600

*******************************************************************
Lead guitar: Lots of syncopation that is tough to learn without listening to the
recording. T=10th fret, E=11th fret, W=12th fret. Add 32nd note patterns when strumming outros.
Pluck appropriate bass strings on the quarter beats if you can manage it!
