Real Life Version  Voxtrot

[Bm-G-Gbm-A]                                     
Since we're in dropped-D with a capo on 1, those chords look like:

  [Bm]   [G]   [Gbm]    [A]                                                                               
----------------|
--3--------(2)--|
--4--4--2---2---|
--4--5--4---2---|
--2--5--4---0---|
-----5--4-------|


The strumming pattern goes like this:
-----------------------------------------------------------|
-3----3-----3-----3----------------------------------------|
-4----4-----4-----4----------------------------------------|
-4----4-----4-----4----------------------------------------|
-2-------2-----2-----2-------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------|



[Bm]Love, spread out like se[G]eds
Gbm A (etc)
Somebody walked away from landscaped poverty
I came to find you
I came to see the beauty underway
That bloomed love, energy


(Play a few extra bars of A before doing the verse chords again)
And it turns around like yo[Cm]u
And it turns around like [Ab]me
Into something n[Gm]ew
But the only thing I [Bb]see

The chorus is basically three variations on D. Being in Dropped-D with a capo on 1 lets
get a really full sound out of the chords here.

-5---5---5---5--- -3---3---3---3--- -2---2---2---2--- -3---3---3---3---|
-3---3---3---3--- -3---3---3---3--- -3---3---3---3--- -3---3---3---3---|
-2--------------- -2--------------- -2--------------- -2---------------|  X2

(0)-------------- (0)-------------- (0)-------------- (0)--------------|

I see you, I see you
I see you, always struggling

(Repeat verse)
To find some gentle song
Some mode of simple trust
and ways to understand
These reaching orchards
Of broken fame
Grown deep inside of us
By forced and troubled hands

(Repeat chorus)
I see you, I see you
I see you, always struggling
I see you, I see you
I see you, always struggling

Bridge progression is like this:
Bb-A-Dm-A-Dm-A-Bm-Db

I prefer the bar chords here (ie, x5775x works better for Dm than xx0231), but you can
open chords if they're more natural to you.

To find the s[Bb]un
Reaching down through shadowed b[A]rush
Breaking off the bitter bra[Dm]nch
Twisted roots like [A]tails
Dreams of all these [Dm]spotlit kings
Drinking up the [A]light
Like California [Bm]redwoods
Splitting up the [Db]night

This part is basically with the same progression as the first two verses, but the 4th
is different:
[Bm-G-Gbm-Dm]                                     
And it turns around like you
And it turns around like me
All the talking we could do
Oh if only we could be
A real life version of you
A real life version of you
And a real life version of me
A real life version of me

I see you, I see you
I see you, always struggling
I see you, I see you
I see you, always struggling

If you are going to learn this on piano or don't have a capo, here's your chords:

The verses would be:
[Cm-Ab-Gm-Bb]                                     
The chorus is variations of Eb (you'll have to figure them out from the tab; I have no
what the chord names are).

The bridge is this:
B-Bb-Ebm-Bb-Ebm-Bb-Cm-D


And the last verse is
[Cm-Ab-Gm-Ebm]
