Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

A Perfect Sonnet  Bright Eyes

[C]lately i've been wishing i had one desire
[Em]something that would make me never want another
[Am]something that would make it so that nothing matters
[D(b5)sus2]all would be clear then  but i
[C]guess i'll have to settle for a for a few brief
moments and
[Em]watch all dissolve into a single second
and [Am]try to write it down into a perfect sonnet
or [D(b5)sus2]one foolish line
cauz that's [F]all that you'll [G]get so you'll [Am]have to
you are [F]here and then you're [G]gone
*sing the chorus now*
but [C]i believe that lovers should be tied together and
[Em]thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather and
[Am]left there to drown, left there to drown
in their[D(b5)sus2] innocence but
[C]as for me i'm coming to the final chapter
i [Em]read all of the pages and there is still no answer
[Am]only all that was before i know must soon come after
that is the [D(b5)sus2]only way it can be
so i [F]stand in the [G]sun
and i [Am]breathe with[D(b5)sus2] my lungs
trying to [F]spare myself the [G]weight of the trut[Am]h
[C]everything you have ever seen was just a mirror
and you've [Em]spent your whole life sweating in an
endless fever
and now you are [Am]laying ina bathtum full of freezing
water [D(b5)sus2]wishing you were a ghost
but [C]once you knew a girl and you named her lover
and [Em]danced with her in kitchens through the greenest

summer but [Am]autumn came, she disappeared
you don't remember where [D(b5)sus2]she said she was going to
but you [F]know that she is [G]gone because she [Am]left you a
that you [F]don't want to [G]sing
singing [C]i believe that lovers should be chained
and [Em]thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
and [Am]left there to burn, left there to burn in their
but [C]as for me i'm coming to my final failure
i've [Em]killed myself with changes trying to make it
but i still [Am]ended up becoming something other than
[D(b5)sus2]what i had planned to be...ALRIGHT!!! (C,Em,Am, D(b5))
now [C]i believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
and [Em]layed entwined together on a bed of clover
and [Am]left there to sleep, left there to dream of their
[D(b5)sus2]happiness     [D(b5)sus2]
