Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


I Believe in Symmetry   Bright Eyes

[G]Some plans were made and rice was thrown [Am]
[C]A house was built, a baby bor[D]n
[C]How time can move both fast an[D]d slow
[G]Amazes me
[G]And so I raise my glass to symmetry      [Am]
[C]To the second hand and its accurac[D]y
[C]To the actual size of everyth[D]ing
[G]The desert is the sand
[Em]You can't hold it in your hand
[C]It won't bow to your demands
[Am]There's no difference you can make
[D]There's no difference you can make
[Em]And if it seems like an accident
[C]A collage of senselessness
[Am]You aren't looking hard enough
[D]I wasn't looking hard enough

C........G

[G]An argument for consciousness[Am]
[C]The instinct of the blind inse[D]ct
[C]Who makes love to the flower b[D]ed
[G]And dies in the first freeze
[G]Oh I want to learn such simple thin[Am]gs
[C]No politics, no history       [D]
[C]Till what I want and what I ne[D]ed
[G]Can finally be the same
[Em]I just got myself to blame
[C]Is everything up to fate
[Am]When there's choices I could make
[D]When there's choices I could make
[Em]Yeah, my heart needs a polygraph
[C]Always so eager to pack my bags
[Am]When I really wanna stay
[D]When I really wanna stay

[Em]Whe[-]n [C]I [-]wa[Am]nna[-] s[D]tay (x4)
Change....

[G]The arc of time, the stench of sex
[G]The innocence you can't protect
[D]Each quarter note, each marble step
[D]Walk up and down that lonely treble clef
[C]Each wanting the next one
[G]Each wanting the next one to arrive
[C]Each wanting the next one
[G]Each wanting the next one to arrive

[G]An argument for consciousness
[G]The instinct of the blind insect
[D]Who never thinks not to accept its fate
[D]That's fate, that's happiness and death
[C]You get to the next one
[G]You get to the next on down the line
[C]You get to the next one
[G]You get to the next on down the line
[G]The remedy of longing that
[G]Distills each dream and the song I had
[D]By morning watered down again
[D]On silver stars I wish and wish and wish
[C]Move on to the next one
[G]Move on to the next one down the line
[C]Move on to the next one
[G]Move on to the next one down the line
[C]You get to the next one
[G]You get to the next on down the line
[C]You get to the next one
[G]You get to the next on down the line
