Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

speak  Nickel Creek


[A]Well, I sat [E3]down next to a[A7] photo[D]graph.
[A]Tried my b[E3]est, almost[A7] made her [D]laugh.
[A]She was my [F#sus]toughest [B]crowd.
[A]There in the [F#sus]way was a [G]mountain up [B]in the [Cmaj7]clouds.
Well, I can't sleep and I'm not in love.
I can't speak without messing up.
Eyes tell of what's behind.
And hers showed the way to a long and a lonely climb,
But through [D]failure I'll [C]proceed,
And she'll see how [Em]far I've [D]come.
And it's [B]you and me in the [C]sun and sea.
I'll [F3]offer my [E]arm to yours.
It [B]seems to me, no [C]mystery.
Well, it [F3]isn't.  So [E]I'll try [G]hard to [B]speak.
(mando solo)
Well, I sat down next to a living hell.
Tried my best until I struck out.
Movement is not mine.
I stood in the way pretending that I was the vine,
But no failure will proceed from a mouth that drinks its wine.
And it's not me, not my sanctity.
These aren't my words to you.
It's all clear when it's not from here.
So clear I'll try not to speak.
(repeat hook over and over, stop on A)
