Sleep Forever - Portugal. The Man
In the Mountain, In the Cloud
John Baldwin Gourly
>written out by jpgrkowalski@gmail.com

Chords used: D F# Bm C G E G7
strum pattern is pretty relaxed


[Verse 1]

D
As I finally meet my end
  F#
I won't be scared, I won't defend
    Bm
The things I've done
        C                 G
I don't need him like you do
        C                 G
I don't fear him like you do


[Verse 2]

D
As my world revolves the sun
  F#
I hope the light that I become
    Bm
Can sleep for once
        C                 G
I won't leave it like you do
        C                G
I won't lead it like you do
        C                  G
I won't leave it like they do
        C                  E
I don't need him like they do


[Pre-Chorus]

D              F#  
I just want to sleep forever
      Bm
Never see tomorrow
   C       G
Or lead or follow
D               F#
I don't want to work forever
Bm
Know what I know
   C      G
Or beg or borrow


[Chorus 1]

              D
Just like our mothers
                F#
Who gave us our homes
                       Bm
We'll be just like our fathers
                  C   G
And go out on our own

                  D
'Cause we are the colors
                F#
Of all that you see
                       Bm
We'll be just like our brothers
                C       G
And take to the streets
                G7
And take to the streets


[Post-Chorus]

D              F#
I just want to sleep forever
      Bm
Never see tomorrow
   C       G
Or lead or follow


[Verse 3]

D
As my world it hides behind
    F#
The words only your wars define
     Bm
They read a lot like news
      C                 G
But I fear it more than you
  C                 E
I fear it more than you


[Pre-Chorus]

D              F#
I just want to sleep forever
      Bm
Never see tomorrow
   C       G
Or lead or follow
D               F#
I don't want to work forever
Bm
Know what I know
   C      G
Or beg or borrow


[Chorus 2]

              D
Just like old lovers
                F#
Who never leave home
                 Bm
We'll forget the city
                 C     G
We'll forgot the roads

                  D
'Cause we are all rebels
                    F#
Never do what we're told
                Bm
We may not grow money
                C   G
But man we grow old
            G7
Man we grow old


[Pre-Chorus]

D              F#
I just want to sleep forever
       Bm
Never see tomorrow
   C       G
Or lead or follow
D               F#
I don't want to work forever
Bm
Know what I know
   C      G
Or beg or borrow


[Chorus 3]

              D
Just like our mothers
            F#
Who gave us homes
                       Bm
We'll be just like our fathers
                  C    G
And go out on our own

                  D
'Cause we are the colors
                F#
Of all that you see
                       Bm
We'll be just like our brothers
                C       G
And take to the streets


[Chorus 4]

                  D
'Cause we are all children
                F#
Yeah we are all man
              Bm
It may not be much
                  C   G
But we do what we can

              D
Don't need no preacher
           F#
To make us believe
                  Bm
That everything's perfectly
               C  G  D
Fucked up like me

In some parts, it's not C then G, it's just G the whole way through. People should get that from listening though, 5 stars man.
