Woodkid - Baltimore's Fireflies

(tabbed by nuageux)

No Capo


2x  Em D Bm  C

-Verse 1-
Em                          D
What are the words that I'm supposed to say?
Bm                             C
Your white skin, swirling fireflies.
Em                          D
Darkness has surrounded Baltimore bay.
Bm                           C
Why don't you open your blue eyes?
Em                               D
Are they things that water can't wash away?
G                              C
How can your absence leave no trace?
Em                        D
As I let you sink in Baltimore bay.
G                         C
I drown myself deep in disgrace.

2x Em D G C

-Verse 2-
Em                            D
What is the price, am I supposed to pay?
G                            C
For all the things I try to hide?
Em                          D
What is my fate, am I supposed to pray?
G                                C
That trouble's gone with the sunlight?

2x Em D G C

-Verse 3-

F#m                             E
A warm sun rises and ignites the bay.
A                             D
I come back home and start to cry
F#m                         E
I'll never come back to Baltimore bay.
A                      D
Try to forget the fireflies.
F#m                             E
What are the words that I'm supposed to say?
A                          D
If someone knew about this lie?
F#m                       E
If your body rises to the surface?
A                          D
Through the silence of fireflies


2x F#m E A D

4x Abm F# Bb E

Nice, it's the correct progression but everything's half a step out, you can still play along with the song this way if you put a Capo on the 1st fret though =)

Oh and the A in the outro should go up two half-steps (like the rest of the chords) to a B, not an A# ;)

The Bb should indeed be a "B" but as for the capo Ben-G-Man, I think you're wrong. When I play along to this it sounds fine: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lh5TsDBBDig
