American English  Idlewild

S[G]ongs when they're true, are all dedi[Em]cated to you
In this inv[C]isible world I choose to live in
A[G]nd if you believe that for now I un[Em]derstand
Why words mean so much[C] to you
They'll never be ab[G]out you


Verse 2
[G]Maybe you're young without youth
Maybe you're [Em]old without, knowing anything's [C]true
I think you're young wit[G]hout youth....


Pre Chorus - drums begin, riff stops.

T[D]hen you contract the Ame[C]rican dream
You ne[Em]ver look up[D] once
DV C
You've contracted American dreams
Em D (slide up to G)
I require you to stop and look up.


Chorus

[G]Sing a [D]song about [Em]myself
Keep singing a [C]song about m[G]yself
Not some in[D]visible [Em]world    [C]






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

[D]And I won't tell you what t[C]his means, cause yo[Em]u already [D]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


[G]You came a[D]long and found the w[Em]eak spot - t[C]hat you've always wanted
[G]Let yours[D]elf be everythi[Em]ng that you’[C]ve always wanted
(While this is sung - the chorus is sung)
[G]It doesn’t have to[D] be so [Em]silent - that you'v[C]e always wanted
[G]No need for [D]explanations[Em] - that you've[C] always wanted

Ending

You[G]'ll fi[D]nd, what you f[Em]ind when you fi[C]nd there’s nothing (x 2)


End on a G
