A welcome arrow through the heart

Electric shocks on aching bones

A frightening magic I cling to

5. It's Beginning to Get to Me

Its Beginning To Get To Me Chords by Snow Patrol, www.Ultimate-Guitar.Com

Tabbed by Ben McConnell
Standard Tuning
I tabbed this for Acoustic Guitar. I may be off on a few chords. It's hard to tell what 
band was doing, since this song they use a lot of bass.
Chords Used: E A D

E
I want something
E
That's purer than the water
E
Like we were
E		A
It's not there now
A		   E
Ineloquence and anger
E
Are all we have
E	A
Like Saturn's rings
A                   E
An icy loop around me
E
Too hard to hold
E	A
Lash out first
A                        E
At all the things we don't like
E
Or understand
E
And it's beginning to get to me
E			A
That I know more of the stars and sea
A
Than I do of what's in your head
E
Barely touching in our cold bed
E
Are you beginning to get my point
E
They're always fighting with aching joints
E			A
It's doing nothing but tire us out
A		E
No one knows what this fight's about
E
The answer phone
A		E
The lonely sound of your voice
E
Frozen in time
E
I only need
A			E
The compass that you gave me
E
To guide me on
E
And it's beginning to get to me
D
That I know more of the stars and sea
A
Than I do of what's in your head
            E
Barely touching in our cold bed
            D
Are you beginning to get my point
A
They're always fighting with aching joints
A
It's doing nothing but tire us out
            E
No one knows what this fight's about
            D
It's so thrilling but also wrong
A
Don't have to prove that you are so strong
A
Cos I can carry you on my back
            E
After our enemies attack
            D
I tried to tell you before I left
            A
But I was screaming under my breath
E
You are the only thing that makes sense
E
Just ignore all this present tense
Strum E chord loudly

E
We need to feel breathless with love
E
And not collapse under its weight
E
I'm gasping for the air to fill
E
My lungs with everything I've lost
E
We need to feel breathless with love
E
And not collapse under its weight
E
I'm gasping for the air to fill
E
My lungs with everything I've lost

END ON E

6. You Could Be Happy

Capo 3

D 1 bar  A 1 bar  G 2bars x4

             D         A       G
You could be happy and I won't know
                          D     A           G
But you weren't happy the day I watched you go
                          D      A       G
And all the things that I wish I had not said
                             D       A     G
Are played on lips 'til it's madness in my head

                  Em         D     G     
Is it too late to remind you how we were?
                         Em      D        G
But not our last days of silent, screaming blur
               Em       D        G
Most of what I remember makes me sure
                               D       A       G
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

             D        A        G
You could be happy, I hope you are
            D            A           G
You made me happier than I'd been by far
                   D     A         G
Somehow everything I own smells of you
                   D            A       G
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true

                       Em     D      G
Do the things that you always wanted to
                         Em        D            G
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do
                     Em      D      G
More than anything I want to see you go
                D           A         G
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world 

7. Make This Go On Forever

Capo 4

Verse 1

A                                   C
Please don't let this turn into something it's not
G                       F
I can only give you everything I've got
A                          C
I can't be as sorry as you think I should
G                                 F
but I still love you more than anyone else could

A                                   C
All that I keep thinking throughout this whole flight
G                                       F
Is 'it could take my whole damn life to make this right'
A                                         C
This splintered mast I'm holding on won't save me long
G                                    F
Because I know fine well that what I did was wrong

Chorus
Am                   C              F                         
   G
The last girl in the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
Am                 C               F                   G
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
Am                       C                    F
The weight of water, the way you taught me to look past everything I had
G
ever learned
Am                    C              F                   G
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

Verse 2
A                                      C
We have got through so much worse than this before
G                                      F
What's so different this time that you can't ignore?
A                                    C
You say it is much more than just my last mistake
G                                       F
And we should spend some time apart for both our sakes

Chorus
 x2

Piano Solo

A

Outro
A
And I don't know where to look
A
My words just break and melt
A
Please just save me from this darkness
A
Please just save me from this darkness

8. Set Fire to the Third Bar

Bm	A	G x2

Bm		A		G
I find the map and draw a straight line
Bm		A		G
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
Bm		A		G
The distance from me to where you'd be
Bm		A		G
It's only finger-lengths that I see
Bm		A		G
I touch the place where I'd find your face
Bm		A		G
My fingers in creases of distant dark places

Bm		A		G
I hang my coat up in the first bar
Bm		A		G
There is no peace that I've felt so far
Bm		A		G
The laughter penetrates my silence
Bm		A		G
As drunken men find flaws in science

Bm		A		G
Their words mostly noises
Bm		A		G
Ghosts with just voices
Bm		A		G
Your words in my memory
Bm		A		G
Are like music to me

Bm			D	
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
And sets me down in your warm arms

Bm		A		G
After I have travelled so far
Bm		A		G
We'd set the fire to the third bar
Bm		A		G
We'd share each other like an island
Bm		A		G
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
Bm		A		G
And dreaming pink wildfire
Bm		A		G
The last place we left off
Bm		A		G
Your soft skin is weeping
Bm		A		G
A joy you can't keep it

Bm			D
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
And I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms

Bm			D
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms

10. Open Your Eyes

G			C	
All this feels strange and untrue 
Em			C
And I won't waste a minute without you
G			C	
My bones ache, my skin feels cold 
Em			C
And I'm getting so tired and so old 

G			C
The anger swells in my guts

I want so much to open your eyes 
Em			C
Cos I need you to look into mine

G			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes
Em			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes[x4]

G			C
Get up, get out, get away from these liars 
Em			C
Cos they don't get your soul or your fire
G			C
Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine 
Em			C
And we'll walk from this dark room for the last time 

G			C
Every minute from this minute now 
Em			C
We can do what we like anywhere 
G			C
I want so much to open your eyes 
Em			C
Cos I need you to look into mine 

G			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes
Em			C
Tell me that you'll open your eyes [x8]

G			C
All this feels strange and untrue 
Em			C
And I won't waste a minute without you

11. Finish Line

Intro/Verse: C, Am, G, F
Chorus: G, Am, F

C          Am       G              F
     The earth is warm next to my ear
C        Am    G                  F
     Insects noise is all that I hear
C          Am          G              F
     A magic trick makes the world disappear
C          Am       G                               F
     The skies are dark, they're dark but they're clear

G                         Am              F
A distant motorcade and suddenly there's joy
G                              Am            F
The snow and tickertape blurs all my senses numb
G                                 Am             F
It's like the finish line where everything just ends
G                           Am             F
The crack of radios seems close enough to touch

C          Am       G              F
      Cold water, cleaning my wounds
C          Am       G              F
      A side parade, with a single balloon
C          Am       G              F
      I'm done with this, I'm counting to ten
C          Am       G              F
      Blue as seas, running to them

G                         Am              F
I feel like I am watching everything from space
G                       Am            F
And in a minute I hear my name and I wake
G                            Am                   F
I think the finish line's a good place we could start
G                            Am                  F
Take a deep breath, take in all that you could want
