How To Play

Intro: Drumbeats
 
 
Verse 1:
F                           Dm
  Let's call this the quiet city
Where screams are felt
              Bb
as a wave of stoplights
                   C
Drive through the streets as 
                       F
gunshots punctuate the night
             Dm
The sides we take divide 
        Bb
us from our faith
        C
And the morning dove gets 
                        Dm
caught in the telephone wire
  F                Dm
Asleep you set the fire 
   Bb   C   Dm   F
in your own house
And the night was
  Dm         Bb
a knife that cut
    C
And I'm para--
 
 
Chorus 1:
  Dm
--lyzed
Bb            Dm
Cross out the eyes
Bb           Dm
Blur all the lines
Bb           C
Tearing this canvas
         Dm
from the wall
   Bb              Dm
We crossed out the eyes
    Bb                  Dm
Put lines through these cries
   Bb             C
We pulled all the leaves 
                    Dm
from the trees that fall
(your trees that fall
your trees that fall
your trees that fall
your trees that fall)
 
 
Verse 2:
F
  A silent dance that we 
Dm                     Bb
did into this hospital bed
                         Dm
Hear voices from another room
                    F
"It happens all the time"
                     Dm
but you leave in the sand
              Bb
the leaves fallen
                      C
counting down days to live
Drain the blood
               F    Bb
from this valentine!
        Dm
"We can rise on the 
         Bb
wings of the dove
          Dm
See blue skies getting caught 
                          F   Bb
in the trail of all this smoke
       Dm
We can rise like candles in 
Bb
the dark-yours always"
C
  and an envelope marked with 
           Dm
your new address
  F                Dm
Asleep you set the fire 
   Bb   C   Dm   F
in your own house
And the night was
  Dm         Bb
a knife that cut
    C
And I'm para--
 
 
Chorus 2:
  Dm
--lyzed
Bb            Dm
Cross out the eyes
Bb           Dm
Blur all the lines
Bb           C
Tearing this canvas
         Dm
from the wall
   Bb              Dm
We crossed out the eyes
    Bb                  Dm
Put lines through these cries
   Bb             C
We pulled all the leaves 
                    Dm
from the trees that fall

  your cries!!
 
 
Verse 3:
Am
  It was the first 
time face to face
I'm crossing the line
Talking to the other
side of death
Hearing the words that choke
memories into flatlines
I'm calling your name
hoping for something
to wash these dreams
of you away
         Dm  Bb Dm Bb Dm Bb C--
(till we die!)
     Dm  Bb      Dm     Bb Dm Bb C--
(memories in flatlines!)
 
 
Chorus 3:
Dm Bb            Dm
   Cross out the eyes when 
    Bb       Dm   Bb C
you said all these    lies
Dm Bb            Dm
   Cross out the eyes when 
    Bb       Dm   Bb C    Gm
you said all these    lies
 
 
OUTRO
F
Fence was blown down in a 
                      Gm
winter storm and this field
(cross out the eyes!)
 Dm
Stretches out of this 
               Gm
world into the sound
(A trace of!)
F
What can we do put a stop to 
                 Gm
the coming white days
(In a love song!)
    Dm
I'm hoping for something to wash 
                     C(hold)
these dreams of you away
(Stretches out of this world
Lets drive back the dead
Stretches out of this world
Stretches out of this world)
