  Cold  War  Kids
Dreams Old Men Dream
=====================

From their album Loyalty To Loyalty, this is one of my favourite tracks.
Their album is amazing. Hope you like this tab, some bits you can figure out
by yourself, its all here. It may not be perfect but its as close as I can
get to it.

Tabbed by Yas.

'Thought I was laying in the gutter in
Milk cartons and bones
But I was standing on a mountain top
Looking over your homes'

My hands deep in soil
But I was there on an island
Shooting flares at you both'

'Thought I was soothing like a violin
Confessing new rain
But I was piping like a trumpet
Frantic but faint'

'Thought I was built like a building's built
On concrete and stone
I realized i'm just a hack actor
Finished playing my role'

Chorus:

Dmaj7               Dmaj7(v2)
    You're reading my thoughts
D         G(v2)    G       
    Dreams old men dreams
Dmaj7                           Dmaj7(v2)
    it's just like when we were kids
D            G(v2)  G
    We'd lay around wondering
Dmaj7         Dmaj7(v2)           D      G(v2)  G
    We try to listen to what they said

Push my piano outside
I don't care, I don't care

Meet the media black sky
I don't care, I don't care

The neighbours will complain
Let them stare, let them stare

Who knows where the time goes
I don't care, I don't care

'What would you think of me if I told you
I haven't slept in weeks
I've been up chasing my childhood with a pen
These are dreams old men dream'
