CARAMIA (Emily Saliers)
D                 E
Caramia - a blank notebook and a back pocket fade...
            Em
You used to mock me;
                  G
Sometimes I would cry
     C#dim      D     Gm   D
When I was home later.

You hurt my feelings:
          B7
Why, why, why?
                      Em
Write it down in your notebook,
          G C#dim      D    Dsus4  D
My wannabe Harriet the spy.
              Bm7
Some say your genius
           Em7
Is in your madness;
             Dm
Will you get better?
                  D         Dsus4 D
And then will you leave us?
       G               C#dim
How you mixed with the darkness
                D
At such a young age!
              Em
Until in your chemistry
            G
Science and violence
       C#dim          D  Dsus4 D
Turned silence to rage.


D5       D5/B        D5/C#          D5
Why...       are you dreaming this?
         Am          Am/B                Am/C   Asus2
One shoe off, and a bridge to cross over.
D5    D5/B        D5/C#      D5
And where is your taxi fare?
        Am          Am/B
Are you left by yourself
    Am/C        Asus2
Or left by your lover?
    D5                    D5/B
For three nights straight now
                 D5/C#      D5
I dreamed I kept both of my shoes,
             Am          Am/B
But I've forgotten my lines, and
    Am/C        Asus2
I've misplaced my cues;
D                          D/B
And there's a sea full of faces
      D/C#
And a show to go on;
        Am          Am/B
And I'm struck mute at entrance
    Am/C        Asus2
With nothing to draw from!

D
There were the secrets: the big bang
        E
And the bigger joke.
                 Em
You seem to know all of them
        G               C#dim          D    Gm D
And injustice makes you red with choke.

You love like you're desperate!
                         B7
You don't know what love is!
                       Em
I thought if there was one thing I could give you,
                  C#dim
One thing I could tell you,
             D          Dsus4 D
Maybe it was this...
                      Bm7
With your head on the bed board,
                Em7
The anguished repeat;
               Dm
The sweat of our sadness--
                  D       Dsus 4 D
The twist of the sheets.
             G
I don't want what's best for you!
C#dim                        D
     Where would I be if you found it?
                               Em
I prayed a lot about these bad feelings inside,
            G           C#dim       D         Dsus4  D
But I can't pray my way through or around it.


I found a lot of this somewhere else and messed around with it a bit. If you are the 
transcriber, please let me know.

I have checked this and find it accurate to the recording.

I think that the Dm to D progression is a bit ugly. When I play it, I substitute a Gm7.

I would also switch to a A/C# instead of the indicated D5/C#, which puts a rather ugly major 7th in the bass. With A/C#, you have the third in the bass, instead.

Oh, and during D5 D5/B D5/C# D5, I would actually just play a "D." The rising bass might work with an orchestra, but it just sounds ugly on a guitar.
