                             Lift Me Up - Live
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard

This is the song from "Zack & Miri." I really loved the song in the movie, but 
couldn't find any tabs, so I did them myself.  This is my first try at tabbing 
so it may not be perfect, but it sounds pretty good to me. This song is unreleased 
from a demo of their album "Throwing Copper."

To start, it's little different for acoustic or electric. The basic chords are 
G A D F#m G, but played different for each.  I'll just do the tabs for both.


Acoustic

  Verse:  Played with emphasis on bass. Let notes ring.
    Hold...     up...       palm  of... hand

  Chorus:  Open up with full strumming.                    Ends with G repeating.
    I'll...     you...      love  or    cry                Oh...

 Solo:  Same tab for both guitars. Distortion on electric, probably using some
        effects. I'm certain this isn't the right way. I'm not lead guitarist, 
        it's all done by ear.

Lyrics:

Hold me up in the palm of your hand
Lying to you is a river of sin
Your metaphores, your silent calls
Your feelings are too real
Let them spew, a fall from grace
Would do us good today

I'll lift you up, we can love or cry
Hey, I'm in love, I'll take you up again
Oh, oh...

All that to you in a church by the sea
We're late, but not in the same way
We're older today

I'll lift you up, we can love or cry
Hey, I'm in love, I'll take you up again
Your eyes have too many colours and I can only try
Your energy could be runnin' low, now
The juice is dry
Oh, oh...

Images we cannot leave behind
Like two riversides we roll back
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Lift me up
In the palm of your hand
Lying to you is a river of sin, oh...
Your metaphores, your silent calls
Your feelings are too real, oh...
Let them spew, a fall from grace
With your love you had today, oh, oh hey...

I learnt this song a while ago.
I played it a little different though,
try the main chord progression as G#-A#-D#-A#-G#,
have to use barre chords.
Alternativley you could put a capo on 1st fret and play G-A-D-A-G, If you play along with the song it should match.
Cant remeber what I played for the bridge n stuff i'll have to go through it again.
