Vanilla Twilight
album: Ocean Eyes
tabbed by ambient 203

Tuning: Standard


Sorry about the spacing, it's a little off but hopefully you can figure it out.
I have to give JJ (he tabbed out version 2) credit for figuring out the main
keyboard riff, although I've altered it slightly because it wasn't exactly
right. Anyway, this is a really cool song, I hope you enjoy!

B              F#
The stars lean down to kiss you,

Abm         E
And I lie awake and miss you.

B          F#            Abm        E
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere.

B                   F#
Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly,

Abm                 E
But I'll miss your arms around me.

B            F#
I'd send a postcard to you dear,

Abm          E
Cause I wish you were here.

B, F#, Abm, E x4 (same chord progression as above)


B                F#
I'll watch the night turn light blue,

Abm               E
But it's not the same without you

B                F#              Abm      E
Because it takes two to whisper quietly.

B            F#
The silence isn't so bad

Abm               E
'Til I look at my hands and feel sad

B                  F#                   Abm                   E
Cause the spaces between my fingers are right where yours fit perfectly.


(This is the little keyboard riff that goes from
"I'll find repose..." to "... I don't feel so alone.")

B            F#
I'll find repose in new ways,

Abm               E
Though I haven't slept in two days

B            F#                Abm          E
Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone.


(play this part by barring the 7th fret of the B and e strings
with your index finger)

B                 F#
But drenched in vanilla twilight,

Abm               E
I'll sit on the front porch all night

B             F#                     Abm             E
Waist deep in thought because when I think of you I don't feel so alone.

C#m    Abm   F#

             C#m      Abm    E
I don't feel so alone.

             C#m      Abm    F#   E
I don't feel so alone.

   B     F#        C#m        Abm       E           
As many times as I blink I'll think of you, tonight.

B     Abm    E

B     E      F#

              B    Abm      E
I'll think of you tonight.

B    E       F#

C#           Ab           
When violet eyes get brighter

Bbm         F#
And heavy wings grow lighter

C#             Ab            Bbm         F#
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again.

C#                  Ab
And I'll forget the world that I knew,

Bbm            F#
But I swear I won't forget you.

C#       Ab                     Bbm
Oh, if my voice could reach back through the past

    F#              Ab
I'd whisper in your ear... Oh darling I wish you were here.


           
    C#         Ab    Bbm     F#  x8               add after second play through
