Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Black  Pearl Jam

[E]Sheets of empty [A]canvas[Asus4]      [A]  
untouched [E]sheets of clay      [A]  [Asus4]      [A]
[E]Were laid spread out be[A]fore me
as her [E]body once did

[E]All five hor[A]izons,[Asus4]      [A]  
revolved a[E]round her soul[A] (as the earth to the [Asus4]sun)  [A]    
[E]Now the air I [A]tasted and breathed,
has [E]taken a turn

Oooh [C]and all I know I taught her was... every[Em]thing
Oooh [C]I know she gave all... that [Em]she wore
And now my [D]bitter hands
Chafe be[C]neath the clouds
Of what was every[Em]thing
Oh the [D]pictures have, all been [C]washed in black
Tatooed every[Em]thing.
I [E]take a [A]walk outside[Asus4]      [A]
I'm sur[E]rounded by some [A]kids at play [Asus4]      [A]
[E]I can feel their [A]laughter
So [E]why do I sear
Ooh [C]and twisted thoughts they spin... round my [Em]head (I'm spinnin')
Oooh I'm [C]spinning how quick the sun can [Em]drop away-ay-ay-ay-ay
And my [D]bitter hands
Cradle [C]broken glass
Of what was every[Em]thing
All the [D]pictures had all been [C]washed in black
[Em]Tatooed everything
All the [D]love gone bad
turned my [C]world to black
tatooed all [D]I see
All that [C]I am
All that I'll [Em]be...   [D] yeaah-heah[C]
I [Em]know some day you'll have a beautiful life
I [D]know you'll be a sun,
In [C]somebody elses sky, [Em]why, why   [D]why
can't it be[C], can't it be [Em]mine[D] [C] [Em].

after, "the air has turned," there aren't other words... the other part is "cradle broken glass"
