Nothing Gets Crossed Out
by Bright Eyes

Simple chords, as with most Bright Eyes songs. I'm fairly sure they're right.

Capo 3rd Fret

G/C:  X20003
Am:   X02210
D:    XX0232
G:    320003
G/F#: 2X0003
F:    133211

G/C                                  Am
Well the future's got me worried such awful thoughts
D                                    G            G/F#
My head's a carousel of pictures, the spin-ning ne-ver stops
G/C                   Am
I just want someone to walk in front
        F           G
And I'll follow the leader

Like when I fell under the weight of a schoolboy crush
Started carrying her books and doing lots of drugs
I almost forgot who I was
But I came to my senses

Now I'm trying to be assertive, I'm making plans
Going to rise to the occasion, yeah, meet all their demands
But all I do is just lay in bed
And hide under the covers

G/C                     D
Yeah, I know I should be brave
    G       G/F#       G/C         D
But I'm just too afraid of all this change

And it's too hard to focus through all this doubt
I keep making this to-do list but nothing gets crossed out
Working on the record seems pointless now
When the world ends who's gonna hear it?

But I'm trying to take some comfort in written words
Yeah Tim, I heard your album and it's better than good
When you get off tour I think we should
Hang and black out together

Cause I've been feeling sentimental for days gone by
All those summers singing, drinking, laughin', wasting our time
Remember all those songs and the way we smiled
In those basements made of music?

But now I've got to crawl to get anywhere at all
I'm not as strong as I thought

So when I'm lost in a crowd
I hope that you'll pick me out
How I long to be found
The grass grew high, I laid down
Now I'm waiting for a hand
To lift me up, help me stand
I've been laying so low
Don't want to lay here no more

Don't want to lay here no more
Don't want to lay here no more
             F               D
Don't want to lay here no more

Everything that happens is supposed to be
And it's all predetermined, can't change your destiny
Guess I'll just keep moving someday, maybe
I'll get to where I'm going

The tab's great, but I think the D in the verses should be a D7. Other than that, it's great.

I think everything sounds good except i think you should just use G major during the bridge thing when it goes
"So when i'm lost in a crowd..."
But use the C/G chord for the rest of the song.

well "use the C/G chord for the rest of the song" except for the parts where you explicitly said to use G major
