Powderfinger
The Metre
Odyssey Number 5

Arguably the best song on the album. This transcription is about two or
three guitar parts written for one. Sounds best unplugged.

Capo on second. All notation relative to capo.

Blow the candles out raise a glass to the night
Let all the tension out you've been wound up so tight
It's a tender trap to plan ahead all the time
If you measure the world by what you leave behind

Keep the glass topped up it's not over just yet
Pull off the social bluff celebrate your success
Turn the sunlight out find a place in the shade
If you measure the world by the mark that you make
