If The Brakeman Turns My Way

Bright Eyes

Capo: 4th fret

 GCG
When panic grips your body and your heart is a hummingbird
 GCD
Raven thoughts blacken your mind until you're breathing in reverse
 EmDGDC
All your friends and sedatives mean well but make it worse
 EmCEmC
Every reassurance just magnifies the doubt
 EmDCDG
Better find yourself a place to level out

Em, D

 GCG
Got a cricket for a conscience always looks the other way
 GCD
A cocaine soul starts seeming like an empty cabaret
 EmDGDC
Hey, where have all the dancers gone? Now the music doesn't play
 EmCEmC
Tried to listen to the river but you couldn't shut your mouth
 EmDCDG
Better take a little time to level out
 CG
 I never thought of running
 CD
 My feet just led the way

 G
 Mixed up Signals
 C
 Bullet Train
 GD
 Cars are switched out in the crazy rain
 GC
 I could meet you any place
 DCDG
If the Brakeman turns my way

Em, D

 GCG
All this automatic writing I have tried to understand
 GCD
From a psychedelic angel who was tugging on my hand
 EmDGDC
It's an infinite coincidence but it doesn't form a plan
 EmCEmC
So I'm headed for New England or the Paris of the South
 EmDCDG
Gonna find myself somewhere to level out

Em, D

 GCG
Are your brothels full, Oh Babylon, with merry Middlemen?
 GCD
                                     
Never peer out of their periscopes from those deep opium dens
 EmDGDC
All this death must need a counterweight always someone born again
 EmCEmC
First a mother bathes her child then the other way around
 EmDCDG
The Scales always find a way to level out

 CG
 I tried to pass for nothing
 CD
 But my dreams gave me away

 G
 Mixed up Signals
 C
 Bullet Train
 GD
 People snuffed out in the brutal rain
 GC
 I could live to any age
 DCDG
If the Brakeman turns my way

 AmD7
It is an old world it's hard to remember
 GC
Like a dime store mystery
 AmD7
I'm a repeat first time offender
 CDG
Who has rewritten history

 G
 Mixed up tea leaves
 C
 Phantom Pain
 GD
 Fuzzy logic in the crazy rain
 GD
 Getting better every day
 DCDG
If the Brakeman turns my way
 G
 Mixed up Signals
 C
 Bullet Train
 GD
 Cars are switched out in the blinding rain
 GC
 He'll be smiling as he seals my fate
 DCDG
When the Brakeman turns my way
