Less Talk, More Rock


Focus on the lower strings to make it sound more rock-ish. You can also use this tab for acoustic


Chords:

A B5 D F#5 G

[Verse]

D                                 G
Wake up, coughing, tired, with my face in my hands,
  B5                          A        G
staring at the window as the sunlight demands action.
D                                A
All the energy it takes to close these bedroom blinds.
D                               G
Wrote this selfish sadness on a bathroom wall,
      B5                    A
spent half the span of some lost culture’s rise and fall,
   G                D              A
but I’m as clueless as a drooling four year old.

e|-----------|
B|-----------|
G|-----------|
D|-----------|
A|-5-4-5-4---|
E|-----------|

[Prechorus]

B5           G               A
Still hoping I might find the capacity
B5           G               A
to let you know I know you’re lonely.


[Chorus]

e|---5-------5--------5------|
B|-----7-------7-------7-----|
G|-------7--6-----6-7----7---|
D|-0-------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

So here’s the last call for regrets,

e|---5----------------|
B|-----5-------8-8-8--|
G|-6 ----6-----7-7-7--|
D|-------------5-5-5--|
A|--------------------|
E|--------------------|

a final slow dance through

e|--------------|
B|--------------|
G|------0-2-2-2-|
D|----4---2-2-2-|
A|--5-----2-2-2-|
E|--------------|

the days that we all hold on to.

[Repeat chorus]

Here’s the promises I’ve made, tied too tight to undo.

An unwrapped gift from me to you.


[verse]

D                              G
All the slightly insane on the 18 North Main,
  B5                          A
reaching for a small-town downtown, night rain,
G                            D             A
nothing I could say could be worth saying anyway today.
D                               G
Like “Hey, whatever happened to what’s that guys’ name?”,
    B5                       A                G
we get a little older and it looks the same: askance.
           D               A
Excuse my failing sense of humour.

The bit before the pre-chorus goes

D|--------------
A|-5-4---5-4----
E|-----5-----5--

Seems alright though other than that.
