Faith

Faith Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Am                                  G
Catch me if I fall, I'm losing hope
  Em                            Am
I can't just carry on this way
Am                         G
And everytime i turn away
  Em                            Am
I lose another blind game, the idea of affection holds me
Am                        G
Suddenly I see you change
Em                                   Am
Everything at once the same, but the mountain never moves
 
and so on, it's the same chords repeated over and over, apart from the "no-one lifts
heads" part which i think is...
 
Dm
No-one lifts their heads
Am
No-one lifts their eyes
Em
Justified with empty words
G
The party just gets better and better
 
then back to the Am,G,Em progression for the "I went away alone" part and the fade out
the end.

VERSE
 
    C#m
On candystripe legs spiderman comes,
 A
Softly through the shadow of the evening sun.
  C#m
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead,
 A
Looking for the victim shivering in bed.
 C#m
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom,
     A
And suddenly! A movement in the corner of the room!
              C#m
And there is nothing I can do when I realise with fright
           A
That the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight!

 C#m
Quietly he laughs, and shaking his head
         A
Creeps closer now, closer to the foot of the bed,
     C#m
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies,
     A
His arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes...
     C#m
"Be still, be calm, be quiet now, my precious boy,
         A
Don't struggle like that, or I will only love you more,
         C#m
For it's much too late to get away or turn on the light;
      A
The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight!"

      F#m
And I feel like I'm being eaten
                                     A
By a thousand million shivering furry holes,
      F#m
And I know that in the morning
                                  A
I will wake up in the shivering cold...
                                 C#m(*)
And the spiderman is always hungry...

Mirrors the lonely place

Where I meet you

See your head

Your eyes shine bright

Lament Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Dm                 Em
Today there was a tragedy
F              Gm
Underneath the bridge
Dm
A man walked
          Em
Cold and blue
         F   Gm
Into La Ment
     Dm            Em
The sky coloured perfect
        F           Gm
As the man slipped away
Gm               Em          Bb
Waving with a last vanilla smile
Dm              Em
Somewhere at a table
F                 Gm
Two drowned fools
Dm
Smoking

It sounds better if all the D's in the entire song are replaced with D
major 7th chords.  The following shows the difference on the guitar.
For those of us with keyboards, a D major 7th is D,F#,A,C#.  Enjoy!!!

Change to one face, change to one voice
Dsus2     Fmaj7               C                      Am
Prepare yourself for bed, the light seems bright and glares on white walls

All the sounds of Charlotte sometimes
Dsus2     Fmaj7                C        Am
Into the night with Charlotte sometimes
Dsus2       Fmaj7         C           Am
Night after night she lay alone in bed
Dsus2        Fmaj7      C                      Am
Her eyes so open to the dark, the streets all looked so strange
      Dsus2        Fmaj7             C            Am
They seemed so far away but Charlotte did not cry
 
Pre Chorus
Fmaj7                      Am
The people seemed so close playing their expressionless games
Fmaj7                         Am
The people seemed so close so many other names
 
Chorus

Charlotte sometimes
              Dsus2    Fmaj7
Sometimes I'm dreaming
              C
Expressionless the trance
     Am
Sometimes I'm dreaming
Fmaj7                   Am
So many different names
              Fmaj7
Sometimes I'm dreaming
                        Am
The sounds all stay the same
              Fmaj7
Sometimes I'm dreaming
                   Am
She Hopes to open Shadowed Eyes On a Different World

Come to Me Scared Princess

Charlotte sometimes...
 
Verse 2
 
Dsus2   Fmaj7
On that bleak track
        C            Am
See the sun is gone again
Dsus2         Fmaj7             C     Am
The tears were pouring down her face
           Dsus2                Fmaj7
She was crying and crying for a girl
            C             Am
Who died so many years before...

The sounds all stay the same

Sometimes I'm dreaming

VERSE
 B
I've waited hours for this
 
I've made myself so sick
   G#m
I wish I'd stayed
  F#
asleep today
 B
I never thought this day would end

Just try to see in the dark
 
just try to make it work
   G#m                         F#
to feel the fear before you're here
  B
I make the shapes come much too close
 
I pull my eyes out
        G#m                     F#
hold my breath and wait until I shake...
 
BRIDGE
 E
But if I had your faith
                               B
then I could make it safe and clean
 E
If only I was sure
                               B
that my head on the door was a dream

A Letter To Elise

A Letter To Elise Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE
 
   A                               E
oh Elise it doesn't matter what you say
                             F#m
I just can't stay here every yesterday
                    D
like keep on acting out the same
 
the way we act out
A
every way to smile
 
forget
    E
and make-believe we never needed
F#m
any more than this
D
any more than this
 
 
VERSE 2
 
    A                               E
oh Elise it doesn't matter what you do
                         F#m
I know I'll never really get inside of you
             D
to make your eyes catch fire
 
the way they should
A
the way the blue could pull me in
        E
if they only would
 
if they only would
   F#m                                        D
at least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else
 
that hides away
A
from me and you
 
there're worlds to part
     E
with aching looks and breaking hearts
    F#m
and all the prayers your hands can make
   D
oh I just take as much as you can throw
A
and then I throw it all away
E
oh I throw it all away
F#m
like throwing faces at the sky
     D
like throwing arms around
E
yesterday
 
I stood and stared
     F#m
wide-eyed in front of you
    E
and the face I saw looked back
          F#m
the way I wanted to
      E
but I just can't hold my tears away
    F#m
the way you do
 
 
BRIDGE
 
  G                   F#m
Elise believe I never wanted this
  G                                    F#m
I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises
  G                                F#m
I thought you were the girl always dreamed about
      G
but I let the dream go
        F#m
and the promises broke
                         E
and the make-believe ran out...
 
 
VERSE 3
 
    A
so Elise
                           E
it doesn't matter what you say
                             F#m
I just can't stay here every yesterday
                    D
like keep on acting out the same
 
the way we act out
A
every way to smile
 
forget
    E
and make-believe we never needed
F#m
any more than this
D
any more than this
 
 
OUTRO
 
    A                           E
and every time I try to pick it up
 
like falling sand
F#m
as fast as I pick it up
         D
it runs away through my clutching hands
            A
and there's nothing else I can really do
E
there's nothing else I can really do
F#m
there's nothing else I can really do
   D
at all...

In a hanging garden
Wearing furs and masks...

Jump jump out of time
Fall fall fall fall
Out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals die

The Walk

The Walk Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Em   Am         G      Em
   I called you after midnight
     Am     G    Em
then ran until I burst
  Am          G      Em
I passed the howling woman
    C         D         Em
and stood outside your door
 
   Am        G     Em
We walked around a lake
    Am      G      Em
and woke up in the rain
     Am   G         Em
and everyone turned over
C                 D        Em
troubled in their dreams again
 
Am        G      Em
Visiting time is over
    Am     G    Em
and so we walk away
    Am         G         Em
and both play dead then cry out loud
C              D       Em
why we always cry this way?
 
   Am        G       Em
I kissed you in the water
    Am         G       Em
and made your dry lips sing
   Am     G            Em
I saw you look like a japanese baby
   C      D           Em
    in an instant  I remembered
Am     G     Em
e---very---thing... (x3)
C   D       Em
e---very---thing...
 
C  D  Em (x4)
 
Em   Am         G      Em
   I called you after midnight

then ran until my heart burst
  Am          G       Em
I passed the howling woman
          C   D         Em
and stood outside your door
 
 
   C                 Bm
I kissed you in the water
    C                  Bm
and made your dry lips sing
   Am      G           Em
I saw you look like a japanese baby

    in an instant  I remembered
Am     G     Em
e---very---thing... (x3)
C   D       Em
e---very---thing...
 
 
 Am       G    Em
Take me for a walk
 Am       G    Em
Take me for a walk
