Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Southern State  Bright Eyes

Well the [F]songs you sung spiraled
And [Am]hung 'round like echoes
Or[Bb] ripples on a pond [C]
So you [F]circled the globe
Spent a [Am]year on the road
Withou[Bb]t ever going [C]home
More than a [F]couple of days,
Then you’d [Am]leave right away
Run to a[Bb] girl you barely [C]know
But you [F]like how she sings
And you [Am]can’t help but think
That there’s[Bb] something that she [C]knows and could teach you
[Bb]  While you’re sleeping in that [C]southern state
[Bb]  Where the bars are filled with [C]people you can’t hate
But [Bb]try as you try
You [C]still can’t relate to them
And you [Bb]drink that whiskey down[C]
As they ask you[Am],
“Are you who you [C]say you [F]are?”
Are you who you [Bb]say that you are?[F]
Are you who you [Bb]say that you are, [C]you…
Are you who you [Bb]say that you are?[F]
Are you who you [Bb]say you [F]are? [E]  [Bb]
The fact that [C]you can’t tell makes us like you even more
So now you’re [F]trying again
Or just visiting friends
One ha[Bb]d just had his heart [C]broke

For the first [F]time in his life
He real[Am]ized there are times
When you[Bb] can’t make it a[C]lone

But now you’re [F]giving advice
As if [Am]you had the right
To [Bb]use a word like “[C]love”
It’s a ne[F]gotiable term
What gets [Am]said’s not what’s heard
So it’s [Bb]different then for [C]everyone
But you're still[Bb] hanging ‘round that[C] college town
With you[Bb]r…your new life your new lov[C]er you’ve found
And you’re [Bb]keeping her up at night,[C] bringing her down
She’ll watch you [Bb]drink yourself to de[C]ath
But [Am]won’t ask you,
“is this [C]really what you [F]want?”
Is this [Bb]really what you [F]want?
Is this rea[Bb]lly what you is this [C]what...
Is this rea[Bb]lly what you wa[F]nt?
Is this [Bb]really what you w[F]ant? [E]  [Bb]
C F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because it’s all you’ve got?
Bb C F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because it’s all you’ve got?
Yeah that’s it, I think you’re [Bb]sticking with me now
Because [C]I’m all you’ve got

F, Am, Bb, C until end over...

go-ot, no...i'm all you go-ot, go-ot no, go-ot no...

ooo, that Conor eh?
