Song: Happiness

First Tab woo hoo! :)

This song isn't released yet. Isaac has played it live a number of times. When I saw him 
he said the song was dedicated to his father.
I guess I figured out the chords from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUxWdBzdwC8
Incredibly simple song but incredibly beautiful.

During the, [Cadd9   G] part, Isaac occasionally throws in a hammer on the A and D

Capo 2nd Fret


Cadd9  G  Em7
  Happiness
Cadd9                G
is just outside my window
Cadd9  G  Em7
Would it crash
Cadd9                G
blowing 80-miles an hour?
Cadd9  G  Em7
Or is happiness
Cadd9                G
a little more like knocking
Cadd9  G  Em7
On your door,
Cadd9                G
and you just let it in?

Cadd9  G  Em7
Cadd9                G

Cadd9  G  Em7
   Happiness
Cadd9                G
feels a lot like sorrow
Cadd9  G  Em7
Let it be,
Cadd9                G
you can’t make it come or go
Cadd9  G  Em7
But you are gone-
Cadd9                G
not for good but for now
Cadd9  G  Em7
Gone for now
Cadd9                G
feels a lot like gone for good

Cadd9  G  Em7
   Happiness
Cadd9                G
is a firecracker sitting on my headboard
Cadd9  G  Em7
   Happiness
Cadd9                G
was never mine to hold
Cadd9  G  Em7
Careful child,
Cadd9                G
light the fuse and get away
Cadd9  G  Em7
‘Cause happiness
Cadd9                G
throws a shower of sparks

Cadd9  G  Em7
Cadd9                G

Cadd9  G  Em7
   Happiness
Cadd9                G
damn near destroys you
Cadd9  G  Em7
Breaks your faith
Cadd9                G
to pieces on the floor
Cadd9  G  Em7
So you tell yourself,
Cadd9                G
that’s probably enough for now
Cadd9  G  Em7
   Happiness
Cadd9                G
has a violent roar


Cadd9  G  Em7
Cadd9                G    x2

Cadd9  G  Em7
   Happiness
Cadd9                G
is like the old man told me
Cadd9  G  Em7
Look for it,
Cadd9                G
but you’ll never find it all
(Isaac stops playing here and just sings but you can keep the guitar going)
Cadd9  G  Em7
But let it go,
Cadd9                G
live your life and leave it
(And then he starts back up here)
Cadd9  G  Em7
Then one day,
Cadd9                G
wake up and she’ll be home
Cadd9  G  Em7
   Home,
Cadd9                G
Cadd9  G  Em7
   home,
Cadd9                G
Cadd9  G  Em7
   home
Cadd9                G

Like I said, incredibly simple.
I hope it sounds correct.
