                           Paper Tongues - Get Higher
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I broke this down to strum it on an acoustic, thus the actual song plays out a little 
differently.  The progressions are the same, though, so it's pretty easy to fret out on an 
electric.  This version is a little cleaner to play on your own---pretty simple.

         A (x02220)
     Asus4 (x02230)
         D (xx0232)
         E (022100)
       F#m (244222)

The main riff is an Amaj with a pinky drop to the suspended fourth every now and again.  
It's pretty much the whole song...

NOTE: The actual verses are almost entirely this A progression, but it lacks depth when 
you're playing it alone on the acoustic.  I like to throw around the F#m when it feels 
natural, as below, and palm mute until the chorus:

         A
When you step in the room they won't be holding me down
          F#m
All these demons in my head c'mon let's kill 'em with sound
            A
You see I'm beggin' that you take me and you never look back
               F#m
That's why I'm crying to a wall hoping that you come out

A
Hey...I don't wanna wake up from this
                            F#m
I cannot afford to forget

The feeling of your arms, they hold me
                                      A
The power of your skin, it's lovely

You provoke a man to bow down
                                F#m
I get on my knees and cry out
                            E
"Everything I have is yours now"

               D
So the time is now
             E
Don't let me down
               D
Oh the time is now
                    E
Please don't let me down


Chorus:
    A                      Asus4     F#m
Get higher, and higher, and higher
        D                  A
When my back's against the wall
           D                   A
You're the hand that breaks my fall
                             Asus4     F#m
Climb higher, and higher, and higher
        D                  A
When my back's against the wall
           D                   A
You're the hand that breaks my fall


***Lather, rinse, repeat
