Dead Sea

Dead Sea Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE 1
C
I stood alone, upon the platform in vain
Caug                                              F
Puerto Ricans they were playing me salsa in the rain
                                C
With open doors and manual locks
     F        Fm        C
In fast food parking lots
 
C
I headed West, I was a man on the move
Caug
New York had lied to me, I needed the truth
           F                                    C
Oh, I need somebody, needed someone I could trust
         Am               G           F      C
I don't gamble, but if I did I would bet on us
 
CHORUS
C
Like the Dead Sea
                             F
You told me I was like the Dead Sea

You'll never sink when you are with me
      G           F      C
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea
C
Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
                             F
The finest words you ever said to me
                  Am
Honey can't you see,
             G             F    C
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
 
VERSE 2
C
You told me you were good at running away
Caug                                          F
Domestic life, it never suited you like a suitcase
                                         C
You left with just the clothes on your back
      F                Fm           C
You took the rest when you took the map
 
C
Yes, there are times we live for somebody else
Caug
Your father died and you decided to live
            F                                    C
It for yourself you felt, you just felt it was time
          Am                   G            F        C
And I'm glad, cause you with cats, that's just not right
 
CHORUS
C
Like the Dead Sea
                             F
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
                                Am
You'll never sink when you are with me
      G           F      C
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea
C
Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
                             F
The nicest words you ever said to me
                  Am
Honey can't you see,
             G             F    C
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

G
Would you stay the night?

When you left this town, with your windows down

 We were not good enough for it

Flowers In Your Hair

Flowers In Your Hair Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE
 
G
When we were younger
G
We thought everyone was on our side
G
Then we grew a little
                    Cadd9
And romanticized the time I saw
                     G
Flowers in your hair
               D
See it takes a boy to live
      Cadd9                            G
Takes a man to pretend he was there
 
G
So then we grew a little
    G
And knew a lot
G
And now we demonstrated it to the cops
             Cadd9
And all the things we said
                         G
We were self assured
             D

I won't close my eyes

Cause it takes a man to live

it takes a woman to make him compromise

VERSE 1
 
     A                A
Welllll, she was standing in the bar
     D              D
I said, "Hello, how do you do?"
    E           D                  A  A
She handed me a beer with a kangaroo
 
     A              A            D
She spoke of places I had never been
              D
That she had traveled to
    E                D                  A   A
And we slowed danced along to faster tunes
 
  A                                A                          D
I made her laugh, I made a pass, I showed her my half dollar ring
                          D
She said, "That's pretty cool,
    E                   D                  A    A
But classy girls don't kiss in bars, you fool"
 
 
INTERLUDE (Picking ends here and strumming starts):
A A D D E D A
 
 
VERSE 2
 
   A            A
So later on the crowd calmed down
    D            D
And I believe it was as if
  E                D              A   A
Something drew me closer to her lips
 
   A            A                 D                D
So picture my surprise when I had tried to lean in for a kiss
    E                   D                    A   A
And she just smiled and turned her head down
 
   A
I asked her, "Why?" and she replied,
 A                          D                        D
"It was nothing I was doing wrong, its just what it is"
      E                  D                A   A
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars like this
 
 
CHORUS
 
    D                  E
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars
    D                  E
Boys will break their backs and hearts
    D                 A                  E
But its alright, the hardest part is through

Am               G              C               Dm7     F
When the savior sang from the fire escape on a second floor

Am               G               C              Dm7       F
In the end, it came when you wrote my name on a bathroom stall

Yeah, you ran upstairs, screaming no one cared

And the band played on

Even in thе limo, you were feeling like an animal
Am           G               C                    Dm7        F

Did you write your letters to your shitty friends?

We can love our selves like the days are warm
But, No no no no no

Losing every other friend

Finding nothing in the afterlife

Cleopatra Guitar Chords & Lyrics

INTRO

VERSE
G
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
                                                D
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
          G
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
                                     D
With my father in a casket, I had no plans
 
BREAK
G
 
PRE CHORUS
G                                  C              G
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
                                                D
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
      G                           C                G
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
                                                      D
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around
 
CHORUS
          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

          G                       C                       G
While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
                                             D
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
     G                     C       G
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
         C               G                        D
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you
 
CHORUS

And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time
 
BRIDGE
        Em                 G           C     D     Em
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
         G                        Em            C        D      G
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part
 
BREAK

[Pre-chorus II]
      G                C               G
I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
                                              D
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind
      G                    C                   G
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
       C         G
It's a bed and a bathroom
                    D
And a place for the end
 
CHORUS
            G       D     C        G     C            G          D
I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
