Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Know Your Onion  Shins



e b e b
Shut out, pimpled and angry
e b a b
I quietly tied all my guts into knots
e b e b
Gave up trying to make 'em
e b a b
Figured it'd take 'em too long to look up

C#minor e a e
And besides, it was undeniably clear to me, I dunno why
C#minor d a
When every other part of love seemed locked behind shutters
I kn[b]ew the worthless dregs we've always been

e b e b
Lucked out, found my favourite record
e b a b
Lying in wait at the Birmingham Mall
e b e b e
The songs that I heard, the occasional book
Were the o[b]nly f[a]un I ev[b]er took  [G#]
a b e
And I got on with making myself

[G#]Now the t[a]rick is j[b]ust making yourself [C]
C g
But when they're parking their cars on your chest
g C
You've still got a view of the summer sky
C g C
To make it hurt twice when your restless body caves to it's whim
C Bminor
And suddenly struggles to take flight

Repeat Intro

e b e
Three thousand miles north-east
b e b a b e
I left all my friends at the morning bus stop shaking their heads
e b e b e
What kind of life you dream of? You're allergic to love
b a b C#minor
Yes I know but I must say in my own defense
e a e
It's been undeniably dear to me, I dunno why
C#minor e a e
When every other part of love seemed locked behind shutters
I k[b]new the worthless dregs we are
The selfless, loving saints we are
The melting, sliding dice we've always been
