About this tab version
These chords are sounded out from a stripped down version of the song performed for the Australian radio station triple j in their Like A Version studio (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgOwtDSsYAk). The song is in 6/8 or 3/4 time, depending on how you look at it. So, for the strumming patterns listed, the beats are the 1/8 notes in 6/8. All of that was added in case you wanted a sound more similar to the official recording, which is 2 half steps higher than the version listed here. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Are these strumming patterns correct? Yes No

(I went ahead and put the versions of the chords that I play. In other words, they're all
"fancy" because I believe they have a much fuller sound, while still staying true to
what Ásgeir plays (he plays pretty simplistically on the keys). If you prefer, you can
definitely strip down the chords listed and play the simple G, F#m, etc. and it wouldn't
sound horrible. Whatever instrument you're playing, though, I highly recommend listening
to the video/recording and experimenting with inversions and octaves. For example, in 
the verse, the highest note he plays in each chord is a C# (after using the 
capo/transposing). Also, in the chorus, each time the Dadd9 is played (in like every 
recording of this song), at least the third of the chord is played an octave higher, 
then kind of slides down. Plus, in the intro, I added examples of bass notes to play.)


Key of D#m
Capo 4 (Official recording is Capo 6)


[Intro]
Gadd9    F#m7/A  Bm7/F#    Dadd9/A  (x4)

[Verse 1]
Gadd9      F#m7   Bm7      Dadd9    Gadd9          F#m7   Bm7      Dadd9
What's the use of reaching for your heart, we sail miles apart?
  Gadd9      F#m7     Bm7     Dadd9  Gadd9            F#m7   Bm7      Dadd9
I gave you tomorrow's useless broken try, to make our world alive
    Gadd9    F#m7   Bm7     Dadd9  Gadd9      F#m7   Bm7      Dadd9
I'm free from lover's breathless   scream, following me
   Gadd9          F#m7      Bm7       Dadd9       Gadd9     F#m7     Bm7      Dadd9
Perhaps you could just take one small chance, and see maybe you need me

[Chorus 1]
Gadd9   F#m7 Em7   Bm7           Dadd9
I'm the man   that stands behind you
Gadd9   F#m7  Bm7                 Dadd9
Real calm     while you prove yourself
Gadd9 F#m7 Em7   Bm7          Dadd9
Understand  that there is someone
Gadd9   F#m7  Bm7               Dadd9
Waiting,      till the curtains close

[Interlude]
Gadd9    F#m7  Bm7    Dadd9  (x2)

[Verse 2]
Gadd9    F#m7  Bm7    Dadd9   Gadd9
Me, I'm a watercolour washing off
       F#m7    Bm7    Dadd9
To the deepest sea
Gadd9     F#m7     Bm7    Dadd9 Gadd9
Though my soul may set in dark--ness
        F#m7    Bm7    Dadd9
It will rise in light

[Chorus 2]
Gadd9   F#m7 Em7   Bm7           Dadd9
I'm the man   that stands behind you
Gadd9   F#m7  Bm7                 Dadd9
Real calm     while you prove yourself
Gadd9 F#m7 Em7   Bm7          Dadd9
Out beyond  your claim to freedom
Gadd9   F#m7  Bm7            Dadd9
Field wide,   I can meet you there

[Bridge/Interlude]
Gadd9    F#m7  Bm7    Dadd9  (x4)

[Verse 3] 
(Played exactly like a chorus)
  Gadd9   F#m7 Em7  Bm7           Dadd9
I shut my eyes  and all the world drops
  Gadd9   F#m7  Bm7               Dadd9
I lift them     and you are born again
Gadd9  F#m7 Em7   Bm7          Dadd9
Out beyond   your claim to freedom
Gadd9   F#m7  Bm7            Dadd9
Field wide,   I can meet you there

[Chorus 3]
Gadd9   F#m7 Em7   Bm7           Dadd9
I'm the man   that stands behind you
Gadd9   F#m7  Bm7                 Dadd9
Real calm     while you prove yourself
Gadd9  F#m7 Em7   Bm7        Dadd9
I will come  back here at sunrise
  Gadd9  F#m7  Bm7           Dadd9
A lover        who waits all night


[Outro]
Gadd9    F#m7  Bm7    Dadd9
Gadd9    F#m7  Bm7
