"Black Flowers" - Yo La Tengo
- I'm Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass (2006)

I think this sounds better if you transpose the chords down 7 half-steps and play with a 
capo on 7, but these are the chords to play without a capo.

Intro and verse: G   D   Am Am7 C 
Gmaj7 G

G                           D     Am Am7 C Gmaj7
  You can take what you can get

G                    D        Am Am7 C Gmaj7
  I forgive but I forget

G    D    Am Am7 C Gmaj7

G                      D       Am Am7 C Gmaj7
  You can never sleep enough

G                         D    Am Am7 C Gmaj7
  And your alarm is going off

You wake up and you can't pretend

A dream was just a dream again

Am          Am7             C  Gmaj7
  Won't you dry your eyes?

But it doesn't matter anymore

You did just what you did before

Am          Am7      C
  Until you realize    the words

   Gmaj7       G
Go la la la la la

(Repeat the intro a few times)

You can dip your brain in joy
When you find the real McCoy
When some pretty boys with skinny ties
With black flowers and Valentines
Try to take you home
Do you recognize that I
Have stopped before you get too high
On your own supplies
Singing la la la la

    C            D
You want it, you got it

    Em            F
You can't take it home

G         F           C
You got a long way to go

G         D       Em           F
I wait forever to say that you will

G          F        Em       C  D
You have a heart to show, ohh

G D Am Am7 C Gmaj7 G

Well you don't have to stay inside
Don't have to run, don't have to hide
Come dry your eyes
You know you can always change your mind
Maybe I will too in time
Once we understand
No one understands at all
Singing la la la la
Singing la la la la
