Standard Tuning

Capo 6 / all Chords relative to Capo

[Intro]

C Dm Am 2x

G C

F C Dm C (fast change)

G

[Verse 1]
C     Dm                   Am
      Once I was alive and I could feel
C           Dm                 Am
      I was holding on to you
G        C             F     C         Dm   C         G
   And I redefined the way I looked at dawn inside of you

G

C       Dm                      Am
      I went down a crooked highway
C            Dm                   Am
      I went all outside the line
G           C         F       C         Dm         C          G
  I've been rejected, now the light has turned and I'm out of time

G

[Chorus 1]
         F
Ain't no way I'm gonna last

              Am             Em            G
Hiding in the seams, I can't move the past

          F
Feel like I'm about to crash
             Am         Em            G
Riding on on line, keep keeping on


[Verse 2]
C     Dm                     Am
      Once we were apart and I could see red
C     Dm                             Am
      Never trying to turn back time
G      C                 F    C      Dm        C         G
 Never meant to bring my pain to the front and into your life

G

C     Dm                    Am
      Now I'm headed down a different road
C            Dm                    Am
      Can we walk it side by side?
      G       C  F    C       Dm     C      G
Is an old memory just another way of saying goodbye?

G

[Chorus 2]
         F
Ain't no way I'm gonna last

              Am             Em            G
Hiding in the seams, I can't move the past

          F
Feel like I'm about to crash
               Am         Em            G
Riding on same line, keep keeping on

[Solo]

C Dm Am 2x

G C

F C Dm C (fast change)

G

[Bridge]

        F
I ain't never going to change
                        Am
He'll never get in line
       Em
I keep moving on the path, yeah
G
Holding on to mine

         F
When you talk about the past

What are we talking of?
      Em
Did I let go too fast?

Was I holding on too long?

         F
Ain't no truths from the past

As silent as the sea
     Em
Am I holding on too long?

But you're right in front of me

        F
And I'm moving on a cast
              Am
Shadows on my seam
       Em                 G
I keep moving to changes, yeah
G
Ooh


[Outro]
C  Dm
(till the end)

Capo IV, up to steps from what is here... so progression should be

D Em BM (x2)
A D
G D Em D

And chorus as below

Bm F#m A

All based on live sessions (KCRW, KEXP) TWOD have done recently. This is probably still simplified from what Adam actually plays

The above is how Adam played it at their KEXP session. I just watched it. However, at another appearance, I also saw him play a version similar to eeisners tab below, with the following changes:

D Em Bm (x2)
A D
G D Em D A
G Bm F#m A
D Em
