Hit The Switch  Bright Eyes


      [7]6     [2]2     [7]x

5 x x

F#m: x or 2
     [11]10      [2]2
     [9]        [2]                        
F#m/F: x
E(7): 0 I just feel the 7th is implied, but it's not crucial.

[A]I'm staring out into that vaccum again
[A/C#]From the back porch of my mind

[Bm]The only thing thats alive
I'm all there[E(7] is
[A]And I start attacking my vodka, stab the ice with my straw
My eyes have turned [A/C#]red as stoplights, you seem ready to walk
You know I'll [Bm]call you eventually, when I wanna talk
'Til then you're [E(7]invisible.
[F#m]'Cause theres a switch that gets [F#m/F]hit and it all st[Bm]ops making se[E]nse
[F#m]And in the middle of [F#m/F]drinks, maybe the f[Bm]ifth or the s[E]ixth
[F#m]I'm completely [F#m/F]alone at a ta[Bm]ble of friends
[E]I feel nothing for them. I feel [E(7]nothing, nothing

A, E, Bm, E

F#m, F#m/F, Bm, E

[A]Well, I need a break from the city again

I think I'll s[A/C#]hip myself back west
I got a [Bm]friend there, she says, "hey, any t[E(7]ime."
[A]Unless that offers expired, I have been less than frequent
she's under [A/C#]no obligation to indulge every whim
And I'm so u[Bm]ngrateful, I take, she gives and forgives
And I keep forg[E(7]etting it
[F#m]And each morning she [F#m/F]wakes with a [Bm]dream to des[E(7]cribe
[F#m]Something lovely that[F#m/F] bloomed in her b[Bm]eautiful m[E(7]ind
I said [F#m]"I'll trade you [F#m/F]one for two n[Bm]ightmares of mine
[E]I have some where I die, I have [E(7]some where we all die."
A, E, Bm, E

F#m, F#m/F, Bm, E

Loud Part: Not sure on this part.

Goes from F#m to G#m at the end of the loud part.

[A]I'm thinking of quitting drinking again
[A/C#]I know i said that a couple times
And I'm always c[Bm]hanging my mind, well, i guess i [E(7]am
But theres this [A]burn in my stomach and theres this pain in my side
And when I [A/C#]kneel at the toilet
And the mornings clean light pours [Bm]in through the window
Sometimes I pray I don't die

I'm a goddamn [E(7]hypocrite

[F#m]But the night rolls [F#m/F]around and it all [Bm]starts making [E(7]sense
There is no [F#m]right way or [F#m/F]wrong way, you [Bm]just have to[E(7] live
And so I [F#m]do what I [F#m/F]do and at l[Bm]east I exist
What could [E]mean more than this?
What would[E(7] mean more?
Mean more?

A, E, Bm, E

F#m, F#m/F, Bm

Ending finger picking, play around on this chord:

x20200 It's essentially a Bm.

That's sort of it.
