Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


The Past And The Pending  Shins

[E]"as someone sets [E7sus4]light to the first [Aadd9]fire of Autum[G]n
[E]we settle down[E7sus4], to cu[Aadd9]t ourselves apart[Asus].
[E]cough and twi[E7sus4]tch from the n[Aadd9]ews on your f[G]ace
a[E]nd some foreign [E7sus4]candle [Aadd9]burning in your e[Asus]yes  (see bottom for line endings)

(instrumental play same 2 sets of chords above x1)

[E] held to the [E7sus4]past, too awa[Aadd9]re of the pendin[G]g
[E]chill as the dawn br[E7sus4]eaks an[Aadd9]d finds us up for sa[Asus]le
[E]enter the [E7sus4]fog another lo[Aadd9]w road descendin[G]g
E E7sus4 Aadd9 Asus Aadd9 (build up)
away from the cold lust, your house and summertime

(Chorus)
b[A]lind to the la[Em]st curse of the fa[A]ir
pistols and [Em]countless eyes [A]
a tr[Em]ail of white blo[A]od betrays
the reck[C]less route your[D] craft is running
f[A]eed till the s[Em]un turns into wo[A]od
dousing an a[Em]ncient torch [A]
loiter the w[Em]hole day through
and lo[C]se yourself in lines[D] dissecting love  [A]

(instrumental play same 2 sets of chords in verse)


[E]your name on [E7sus4]my cast and my [Aadd9]notes on your st[G]ay
[E]offer me [E7sus4]little [Aadd9]but doting on a c[Asus]rime
[E]we've turned every [E7sus4]stone and for[Aadd9] all our inventi[G]ons
[E]in matters of l[E7sus4]ove lost, [Aadd9]we've no recourse at[Asus] all         [Add9]
(Chorus)
b[A]lind to the la[Em]st curse of the fa[A]ir
pistols and [Em]countless eyes [A]
a tr[Em]ail of white blo[A]od betrays
the reck[C]less route your[D] craft is running
f[A]eed till the s[Em]un turns into wo[A]od
dousing an a[Em]ncient torch [A]
loiter the w[Em]hole day through and
lo[C]se yourself in lines [D]dissecting,
lo[C]se yourself in lines [D]dissecting, l[C]ose yourself in lines [D]dissecting..."
