Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Carnation  Oasis

[Am]  If you gave me a fr[C]esh carnation
[G]  I would only crush it's te[Bb]nder petals
[Am]  With me you'll have [C]no escape
[G]  And at the same time there'll be now[Bb]here to settle -

[Gm]  I trample down all life in my w[Eb6]ake
  I eat it [D]up and take the c[Bm]ake
  I just av[E]ert my eyes to the p[Am]ain
  Of someone's l[D]oss helping my g[Am]ain

If you gave me a dream for my pocket
You'd be plugging in the wrong socket
With me there's no room for the future
With me there's no room with a view at all -

[Gm]  I am out of season all year 'ro[Eb]und
  Hear machinery ro[D]ar to my empty s[Bm]ound
  Touch my he[E]art and feel wi[Am]nter
  Hold my h[D]and and be doomed fo[Cm]rever -

[Cm/Bb6/Cm/Bb6/Am/F6/Am/Em7/Fmaj7/G6/E]Piano solo: Am/C/G/Bb (x2)
If you gave me a fresh carnation
I would only crush it's tender petals
With me you'll have now escape
And at the same time there'll be nowhere to settle.

[Gm]  And if you're wondering by now who I[Eb6] am
  Look no fu[D]rther than the mi[Bm]rror -
  Because I a[E]m the Greed and F[Am]ear
  And every ou[D]nce of Hate in [Cm]you.

Outro: D/Bm/E/Am/D
