Silverstein
"California"
This is How the Wind Shifts

Tuning: Half-Step Down


Intro:
G                            Em
Feel it, the calm after the storm.
                  D
As still as I can be.
                 C
I'm finally all alone until I fall asleep...

Em--C                      Em--C
     Did I escape or am I captured?
                               D
Trapped in a cage of rear view mirror eyes.
C              D
Triangles that look like faces.


Verse 1:
Em
  This is what I get
C-Em
    for my revenge.
  D      C
A hidden microphone,
D
an amber alert implanted...
Em
...under my skin.
C-Em                   [D]
   It's just in my head but
C
  it takes me over.
   D                       Em
It makes me forget why I'm on my way.
           G
These four years feel like a hundred.


Chorus:
Em                       C                          D
West-bound, driving all alone to make sure that you know.
                   C
I've been running scared without you.
  D                  Em
I drove all night to tell you.
                         C                       D
In dreams I've seen your face with another in my place.
               C---D                            Em--C
I know it was another life but I never could forget you.
                 Em--C----D
I never could forget you.


Verse 2:
Em                 C      Em
  We set it up (we set it up)
                      D    C
like a house of cards in a hurricane.
   D
We didn't think it would ever make sense.
Em                 C       Em
  He set us up (he set you up),
                      D
he knew just where to plant it.
C
  It knocked me over,
   D                    Em
it made me forget how I fell in love.
    G
How much I really cared.


Chorus:
Em                       C                          D
West-bound, driving all alone to make sure that you know.
                   C
I've been running scared without you.
  D                  Em
I drove all night to tell you.
                         C                       D
In dreams I've seen your face with another in my place.
               C---D                          [Ad Lib: Em-D-C-D]
I know it was another life but I never could forget you.
I never could forget you.


Bridge:
Em             D
You'll see me there
         C 
like a familiar stranger 
 D
standing on the street.
Em           D
  I'll say a prayer,
          C
I'll introduce myself 
              D
like it's the first time we'd ever meet.
Em       G
  In California, 
    Am                       C       D    Em
I'd learn that sometimes you have to run away.
       G
In California,
    Am           C--D
I'd find myself again.


Chorus:
Em                       C                          D
West-bound, driving all alone to make sure that you know.
                   C
I've been running scared without you.
  D                  Em
I drove all night to tell you.
                         C                       D
In dreams I've seen your face with another in my place.
               C                 D             Em
I know it was another life but I never could forget you...

I think it sounds better if the Em in the chorus changes to G instead of C, but that's just my opinion.
