*******************************
    Split Lip/Chamberlain
      The Simple Life
*******************************

Tabbed by Strelnikov

Notes - This is an amazing band, one of the original
	emo bands, they sound a lot like 90s alt,
	possibly even grunge.  The emo-ness is in the
	lyrics and the voice, mostly.  This is their
	nice, quiet acoustic song... well, until the
	end.
      - They're known by both Split Lip, and Chamberlain
	but I'm submitting this under Split Lip because
	I prefer that name, and that's what it's under
	in my iTunes library.
      - Standard tuning
      - Since this is the first tab of them, here is their site
        http://www.chamberlain1.com/
        The entire album that this track is on is available there FREE!

First Verse:
Play all of that five times, singing comes in on the second.

Lyrics- Dark streets carry me home now
	I've stayed to long
	We're brave men to sip the stars dry
	And leave sleep alone
	
	Built this house out of a fate driven dream \_ 2x
	And these walls aren't what they seemed     /

Second Verse:
Play it four times.

Lyrics- Hurt stays when the work is over
	We've stayed too long
	I'll save what memory lends me
	When these days are gone

	Built this house out of a fate driven dream \_ 2x
	And these walls aren't what they seemed     /

First verse, play this the fourth and fifth times
Second verse, play this the third and fourth times

Both times, it should be played when these lyrics are sung:
"Built this house out of a fate driven dream
 And these walls aren't what they seemed."

Play twice after the previous part, and sing.
For the second verse, only play once, and stop at
the first note in the second to last measure, and
let that note ring and fade.


Lyrics- Light breaks against
	And I can't follow you down

Play this four times, singing, yelling really.

|--0----------------|  The fourth time, strum this chord, instead
|--0----------------|  of the last measure, once, and let it ring,
|--2----------------|  and that's the end.
|--3----------------|


They throw in bass and drums on this part, too, it's the
unexpected loud, angsty ending.  It's really hard to hear
the acoustic guitar through everything, so those chords are
my best guess, play around with it and listen to the song.


Lyrics- Dark streets carry me home now
	I've stayed too long
	We're brave men to sip the stars dry
	And leave sleep alone

        Hurt stays when the work is over
        We've stayed too long
        We're brave men to sip the stars dry
        And leave ourselves alone
