Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Awful Sweetness Of Escaping Sweat  Bright Eyes

we [Dm]escape from the house
as the day dissapears from the [Am]sky

Into night
we bacame what we wanted to [C]be
like a [G]dream or a [Am]ghost
i [Dm]collapse out of turn

near a house
lying still in the [Am]grass and felt the heat from the ground
rising up to contr[C]act and exp[G]and like a [Am]breath
we [Dm]escape from that place
soaked with sweat and the poison we [Am]drank
fill the bathtub with ice, hope this fever will [C]break
like a [G]heart
but i [Dm]do not recall all the [G]words that were formed
on those [Am]wire lips as they greeted me
a [Dm]promise was made witout [G]thought as the temperature [Am]climbed
and i [Dm]started to sink like the [G]moon
tends to do if you [Am]stare [E]at [C]it [Em]too [G]long
then you [E]blink and it's [Am]gone
and we [C]crawl to our [G]sleep with the [Am]dawn

Dm Am repeated with "isn't it the same mistake"

i [Dm]awake in the light feeling hollow and selfishly [Am]warm
close the blinds and retreat until what's burning is [C]gone
and it's [G]light is [Am]away
the we are [Dm]back in the dark
chasing nothing through backyards and [Am]trees
you ripped your shirt on a fence but it didn't get [C]me
yeah it's [G]fear
it makes you so [Am]low
and these [Dm]creatures look crooked
their shadows cut lines through my [Am]face and the concrete is fire
where my bare feet are [C]placed
in a [G]line next to [Am]yours
and i [Dm]guess i'm not sure if it was [G]fear that was born
as those [Am]awful eyes made their claim on us
i put my [Dm]hands on the fence
said your [G]name
and i started to [Am]climb
and it [Dm]must have been sweat but i [G]drank it like wine
it was [Am]sweet, [E]my [C]mouth [Em]was [G]dry
i heard you [E]scream but i made no [Am]reply
i can [C]still taste it [G]now if i [Am]try

I'm hoping that's right. Enjoi
