Our Lady Peace : Clumsy

Most chords were figured out by Shawn Severin .
Tab and arrangement by Dave D'Uva .
Questions, comments and corrections are welcome.

tune down 1/2 step: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

chords used:

A (A5sus):           X02200             D:          XX0232
AaddF# (AsusaddF#):  202200             E:          022100
A*:                  X02255             F# (F#5):   244XXX
B (B5sus):           X24400             G:          320033
BaddG# (B5susaddG#): 424400             (open):     000030
C# (C#5sus):         X46600

notes:
- I'm not sure what the proper name of the A* chord is.
- Wherever you see 2 chord names per chord above, I used the first name
  in the tab, but the one in brackets is the real name, just so you're
  not misinformed.  I hope this doesn't cause confusion, but I had to
  shorten the names to save space.
- (open) obviously isn't a real chord, it just what's played in the bridge.
- The rhythm might be pretty hard to get used to, so listen to the CD.
- Use your discretion on whether to play power chords sustained or not
  (FYI: X24400 is sustained while X244XX is not).  For instance, you'll
  probably want to play straight chords (not sustained) in the pre-chorus.
- In the chorus, throw in some open high E and B strings to make it
  sound good.  Listen to the CD if you don't know what I mean.
- The bridge is pretty weird.  You can either play the single notes or a
  combination of the notes and chords.  If anyone can add to the rhythm
  part, please let me know.

lyrics:

AaddF#           E    B                         AaddF#
  throw away the radio suitcase that keeps you awake

           E              B                       AaddF#
  hide the telephone, the telephone, telephone in case

      E           B                           AaddF#
  you realize that sometimes you're just not okay

      E              B                                        AaddF#
  you level off, you level off, you level off, and it's not alright now

      E            BaddG#        AaddF#          A
  you need to understand there's nothing strange about this

      E                  B (hold)
  you need to know your friends, you need to know that


  pre-chorus:

  A                 E                  A
  i'll be waving my hand, watching you drown

               B               F#
  watching you scream quiet or loud


  chorus:

C#          A          E      B
  and maybe you should sleep

C#          A        E     B
  and maybe you just need ... a friend

A           C#        B                   AaddF#
  as clumsy as you've been there's no one laughing

 A            E       B     F#
  you will be safe in here

 A            E       B (hold)
  you will be safe in here


AaddF#            E        B                        AaddF#
  throw away this very old shoelace, it tripped you again

          E                      B                            AaddF#
  try and shrug it off, shrug it off, shrug it off, it's only skin now

      E            BaddG#        AaddF#        A
  you need to understand there's nothing fake about this

      E              B
  you need to let me in ... i'm watching you and
