American English

Idlewild

 GEm
Songs when they're true, are all dedicated to you
 C
In this invisible world I choose to live in
 GEm
And if you believe that for now I understand
 C
Why words mean so much to you
 G
They'll never be about you

Verse 2
 G
 Maybe you're young without youth
 EmC
Maybe you're old without, knowing anything's true
 G
I think you're young without youth....

Pre Chorus - drums begin, riff stops.

 DC
Then you contract the American dream
 EmD
You never look up once
DV C
You've contracted American dreams
Em D (slide up to G)
I require you to stop and look up.

Chorus

 GDEm
 Sing a song about myself
 CG
Keep singing a song about myself
 DEmC
Not some invisible world     

Verse 3 - same chords as above

Constantly searching to find something new
But what will you find when you think that nothing's true?
Maybe it's that nothing is new

Verse 4

So you let me hear songs that were written all about you
Because songs weren't written for you
They'll never be about you

(Pre Chorus)

(Chorus x 2)

Middle Part

 DCEmD
 And I won't tell you what this means, cause you already know
And I won't tell you what this means, cause you already know...

Sooo, Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world

 GDEmC
 You came along and found the weak spot - that you've always wanted
 GDEmC
 Let yourself be everything that you've always wanted
(While this is sung - the chorus is sung)
 GDEmC
 It doesn't have to be so silent - that you've always wanted
 GDEmC
 No need for explanations - that you've always wanted

Ending

 GDEmC
You'll find, what you find when you find there's nothing (x 2)

End on a G

C D Em G
