Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Lime Tree  Bright Eyes

[G]It[G/A]'s finerpicked but here are the chords


I keep [G]floatin' down the river, but the [D]ocean never comes
And sin[G]ce the operation, I heard you're [Am]breathing [Am7]just for once
Now eve[Em7]rything is imaginary, es[F#/G]pecially what you love
       Em7                     Dsus2       Dsus*          * G|-0h2-0------|
You left another message, said "it's done", it's done       D|------0h2-0-|

[G]  [G/A]                                   
When I [G]hear beautiful music, it's always [D]from another time,
Old fri[G]ends I never visit, well, I rememb[Am]er what [Am7]they're like
Standin[Em7]g on a doorstep full of [F#/G]nervous butterflies,
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
Waiting to be asked to come inside, just come inside


But I keep [Bm]Go-oh-oh Go-oh-oh-in' o[D]ut
And I can [G]sleep next to a s[F#/G]tranger when I'm c[Em7]omming down
It's 8A.[Bm]M. my heart's be[Am]ating too loud, too loud      [G]
Don't [Bm]be so a[Am]mazing, [Em7]or I'll mi[Am]ss you too much
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
I felt something that I have never touched

(I may be wrong, this part is tough to hear under the strings)

Everyth[G]ing gets smaller now the [D]further that I go

Towards[G] the mouth and the reunion [Am]of the known [Am7]and the unknown
Conside[Em7]r yourself lucky if you t[F#/G]hink of it as home
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
You can move mountains with your misery if you don't, if you don't
It come[G]s to me in fragments, even [D]those still split in two
Under t[G]he eaves of that old Lime Tree I [Am]stood exa[Am7]mining the fruit
Some w[Em7]ere ripe and some were rotten[F#/G], I felt nauseous with the truth
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
There will never be a time more opportune

So I just [Bm]won't be l[D]ate
The wi[G]ndow closes, [F#/G]shocks roll over[Em7] in a tidal wave
And all the [Bm]color drains out of [Am]the frame   [G]
So p[Bm]leased with a daydream that now l[D]iving is no good
I took [G]off my shoes and wa[F#/G]lked into the[Em7] woods
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus* G
I felt lost and found with every step I took
