There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Artist: Straylight Run
Title: "The Words We Say"
Album: The Needles The Space
Standard Tuning (Capo 2)

The intro is supposed to be played on a glockenspiel but if you’re like me and don’t own 
you can play this intro which sounds great on an acoustic guitar. Also, I saw 
Run perform this song and John played it on Capo 2, so that’s how I tabbed it. I hope you enjoy it!


      C       G       Em      D
D|------------------3-2-------0-----4----| (x2)

Verse 1:

C          G      Em       D         C
  We’ll wait in line for most our lives.
C        G      Em      D        C
  Get out, get in, get on with it.
C      G      Em             D              C
  We always hurt the ones we never really love.
C      G      Em             D              C
  We always think we’re all alone, we’re always...
C      G      Em          D              C
  Wrong...                  We’re always...
C      G      Em          D


      C   D  G
The words we say
     C    D    G
Take diff’rent shapes.

(Beneath accordion solo):
C G Em D (x2)

Verse 2:

C         G       Em                  D          C
  We’ll live and die with all the things we recognize.
C         G        Em         D       C
  We’ll count our sins. Stop now. Begin.
C       G       Em              D            C
  We know the words are better left unspoken when
C          G        Em            D               C
  They’ll be right in to tear the heads off of us.
C          G        Em            D               C
  Oooh...                tear the heads off of us.
C          G        Em            D               C



    C            Am
And you can only do so much
   F                G       C
To try and get your point across...

C G Em D (x4)

(A capella)

I’ll live and die with all the things I recognize.
I’ll count my sins. Stop now. Begin.

yeah chords look sound but I dont think its Capod as this performance on Conan shows youtube.com/watch?v=KL1AHA90ltM - all the chords are just a whole not up from the names you have given them e.g D, A, Fsharp minor, E
