Leave it Alone

Tabbed by:Mark Makoway

Because I can't write rhythm notation using my Powerbook, you are going to
have to listen to the CD and figure out how the notes are played. The
rhythm in this song is pretty straight forward and consistent throughout
the song. This is not a difficult song to play, the key is to make
everything flow.

Intro (This is the section of the song before the singing starts. It is
played over the pulsing E's played on the bass.) The part consists of an Em
arpaggio partern.

Verse. This riff/chord part repeats 4 times in each verse; it accompanies
the vocals until the prechorus. (Again, listen to the CD for the rhythm.)
"ho" means hammer on.

Lyrics

i'd walk the water to get back to you
and where i was complete
we found you scattered by the highway side too 
soon to be released
gathered the pieces up and clean the place
where you were undone
and washed the wreckage out unfinished all the 
thoughts that we'd begun
i came to burn the sky and tear away
the beauty that it sows
if i could rape the day and find the things i thought
i'd always known
leave it alone again tonight
i laid your arms out long untwisted there
and shaped what i could find
unmade the most of it then left the rest
the parts unrecognized
my reconstruction was the only way
for one last look at you
i lost the sense of it at the absolution
that we never knew
leave it alone again tonight
leave it alone again tonight
and it takes me back from this place here
it takes me back from this place here
i came to burn the sky and take away
the beauty that it sows
i came to rape the day and find the things
i thought i'd always known
leave it alone again tonight
and it takes me back from this place here
from this place here it takes me over
and it might be lost in this place here
from this place here it takes me on
leave it alone again tonight
