                             SLEEP - Rachel Sermanni
Chords by: ripeandruin

Tuning: Drop D
Capo on the 3rd fret.

Here are the chords played (chord names are written as though played without a capo, also, numbers
of the frets are relative to the position of the capo):

Dm = xx0231 (she actually plays x5776x, so she can nicely slide on the 1st finger (index finger) to play B))
B = x1333x (and then slide with 2nd, 3rd and 4th finger down a half note to play A major)
A  = x02220

Follow this picking (this also seems to be the intro):


\ - slide down
() - sometimes she plays that note and it's beautiful...

You see, I don't know how to use these funny tab notations, but I think you could understand the idea.

Oh yes, and she does something like this, too:

G|--------2-------------2--------------------------------------7---------|    etc.
                            ...so - lar   sys - tem  -  ssssssssssssss...

But you can figure it out yourself by listening to the song.
Anyways, here are the lyrics and chords (not complete):

Dm         B
Sleep baby sleep
I don't mind if you leave;
        Dm          B       A
We will part in our dreams, let them come.
     Dm          B
I'll give you my skin
But you can't have within;
        Dm           B
Hold me tight as you like.
       A                         Dm     B  A
I will leave you when the day is done.

Dm            B
Wake with the dawn
Discover needles in my neck.
         Dm              B       A
Sleep it bade me turn my back on you.
Dm              B
I'll watch your chest
As it rises with each breath
              Dm                B
But you still breathe beneath a river
          A          Dm B A
that I'll never even wade through.

Dm           B
Give me your cup and
I'll give you mine.
         Dm                 B
But I'll prise it from your fingers
in surrender to the night.
          Dm       B
The moon is bright
And hangs alone.
                   Dm   B                       A
Yeah, he's got the stars, but they've got their own

Solar systems.

And I really haven't figured out this part yet:

And I watch as he wards off the dark.
With the gift that the sun gave him.
And I learn from the moon what we are;
All alone.
But alone in a sea of lonely stars.

So go baby glow.

But I'm almost certain, that she ends the song with this chord: 0 0 0 10 9 10

I hope you found this useful. Please, feel free to improve this tab.

How about this:
B Dm
And I watch as he wards off the dark.
With the gift that the sun gave him.
Dm B A
And I learn from the moon what we are;
All alone.
B A Dm B A
But alone in a sea of lonely stars.
Dm B A
So go baby glow.

Yes I agree with above but with a C between the B and Dm in the first two lines and on "what we are"
