E-Bow the Letter by svektaal 

"D": 2:-3--3-2-0-----0

peter doesn't play it like this every single time - he'll play around
with it a lot.


note: during the verses, pick through the chords - it sounds better.

also note:  if you're confused about the verse chords, each chord gets 2 beats
Look up, and what do you see?
all of you and all of me
    Am              Am
cresents, stars, summer lily surprise
                                Gsus2           Am
the bus driver went to write those four Ms - letter
I feel to pop these little pearls
C                              Am
all the boys and all the girls
                                   Am                     F    C
street-toothed, each and every one of them a little scared
I said your name
I wore it like a badgered teenage film star:
       C                    Am
Taz Forrest, Jerry Mash, tenfold tiaras
Am                       F     C          Am
dreaming of Maria Callas, wherever she is

the same thing
I don't get it
I wrapped my hand in plastic
to try to look through that maybelline eyes
girls and boys and others
    F             C
to take the fall
this dark thing

I don't get it

(Chorus):      "D"  (for four beats)  Em (for 2)  G (for 2)
               "D"  (   " )    Em  (for 2)

"I'll take you over, I'll take you there"

aluminum, tastes like fear
Am           C
adrenaline, pulls us near
"C"         Am
tastes like fear

(same chords as above)
will you live to 83?
will you ever welcome me?
will you show me something that noboby else has seen
snuck out, drink, here comes the flood
anything within the blood
these corrosives do their magic so lame, and sweet
from EF drink, it's just another chink
cut too dense they catch the light
aluminum, will you sink?
I don't want to disappoint you, I'm not
here to anoint you
I would lick your pupils
at the sickest move, I'd wear my own crown
with sadness and sorrow and who'd have thought tomorrow
would be so strange

my loss, here we go again

"I'll take you over, I'll take you there"

aluminum tastes like fear
adrenaline, pulls us near
tastes like fear
pulls us near

bridge: (4 beats per chord)  G  Em (3x)

look up
and what do you see all of you and all of me
fussing and starring summing down a late surprise

i can't look it in the eye
sickened of spanish fly
it's okay, i see a cherry-flavoured neckered car
i can smell the salt on your breath
the sweat, victory, salt, the smell thing
i've got it

"i can't move you over"

aluminum, tastes like fear,
adrenaline, pulls us near...

that's it.  on the verse immediately after the bridge,
peter uses an e-bow, and here's what he does:
