-Hands Down-
Dashboard Confessional
tabbed by: Ben D.


It's in standard tuning but a half step down: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb


[Intro]

 Here's the intro lick:
e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|--------1---------1-2-----------|
D|------4---2-----4---------4/6---|
A|----2---------2---------2-------|
E|--0---------0---------0---------|

Riff ends with:
e|------------|
B|------------|
G|------------|
D-------4--1--|
A----2--4--2--|
E--0----------|


 [Verse] 

These are the root chords, a second guitar is muting other notes

     "Breath in for luck..."
e|E------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------6---------------4--------7-\-6-------|  REPEAT
D|--2--------6(PM)---7-------4(PM)----7-\-6-------|
A|--2(PM)----4-------7(PM)---2--------5-\-4-------|
E|--0----------------5----------------------------|

-He does a few stops here and there but it's all the same chords

 [Chorus]

     "My hopes are so high..."
      E     Abm     A     Abm           Repeat chorus:
e|E-----0-------4------5-------4-------------------|
B|-----0-------4------5-------4-------------------|
G|-----1-------4------6-------4-------------------|
D|-----2-------6------7-------6--------6-7-6------|
A|-----2-------6------7-------6-------4-----4-----|
E|---0-0-------4------5-------4------5--------5---|

 The second time through the chorus he ends it differently:
      E     Abm     A     Abm
e|E-----0-------4------5-------4----------|
B|-----0-------4------5-------4----------|
G|-----1-------4------6-------4-----6----|  To verse:
D|-----2-------6------7-------6-----6--6-|
A|-----2-------6------7-------6-----4--6-|
E|---0-0-------4------5-------4--------4-|

The second verse and second chorus are exactly the same (except for some stops in the
verse) After the second chorus he breaks into the bridge/outro section:


[Bridge/outro] 

These are the chords being played, a second guitar is picking through some
other stuff which is at the bottom:

    "Hands down this is the..."            End On:
e|E---0----------0-----------------------   E--0---|
B|---0----------0--------9--------7-----   B--0---|
G|---9---------14--------9--------8-----   G--9---|
D|---9---------14--------9--------9-----   D--9---|
A|---7---------12--------7--------9-----   A--7---|
E|--------------------------------7-----   E------|

 Guitar 2 is playing this during bridge:
e|E--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-6-8-9-8-9-8-9-6-8-9-8-9-8-9-8--|
D|------------------------------9-------------9-----------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------|
   -over and over and over with slight variation at the end.

Well, I believe thats about it.  I'm sure there's stuff wrong but it's definitely close...
what a good song...  enjoy!

Lyrics


[Verse 1]
Breathe in for luck, Breathe in so deep
This air is blessed, You share with me
This night is wild,  So calm and dull
These hearts they race from self-control
Your legs are smooth as they graze mine
We're doing fine,   We're doing nothing at all.

[Chorus]
My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me, so I die happy
My heart is yours to fill or burst
to break or bury, or wear as jewelery
Which ever you prefer

[Verse 2]
The words are hushed lets not get busted,
just lay entwined here undiscovered.
Safe in here from all the stupid questions..
"hey did you get some?"
Man, that is so dumb.
Stay quiet, stay near, stay close
they can't hear, so we can get some.

[Chorus]
My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me, so I die happy
My heart is yours to fill or burst
to break or bury, or wear as jewelery
Which ever you prefer

[Bridge/Outro]
Hands down this is the best date I can ever remember
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo
The dim of the soft lights, the scent of your hair
That you twirled in your fingers
And the time on the clock when we realized it's so late
And this walk that we shared together
The streets were wet and the gate was locked
So I jumped it and let you in
And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist
And you kissed me like you meant it
And I knew, that you meant it
That you meant it, that you meant it
And I knew that you meant it, that you meant it.
