Our Life Is Not a Movie or Maybe  Okkervil River

Okkervil River - Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe (demo version)
Capo 2
Intro: D (strum once)
Itā??s just [D]a ba[G]d movie, where there[D]ā??s[A] no cr[A]yi[Asus4]ng
D G D A (keep strumming A lightly till G)
handing the key to me in this Red Lion,
where the [G]lock that you [D]locked in the [G]suite says thereā??[D]s no[A] pryin[A]g.[Asus4] [Asus4]
When the[G] breath that you[D] breathed in th[G]e street screams thereā?[D]?s n[A]o science[A].[Asus4] [Asus4]
When you [G]look how you[D] looked then to[G] me, then I[D] cease[A] lying [A] [Asus4] and fall into silence.
[G] [D] [G] [D] [Dsus2] [A] [Asus4] [Asus4]  
Itā??s just[D] a li[G]fe story, so there[D]ā??s [A]no clim[A]ax[Asus4].[Asus4]
No more new [D]terr[G]itory, so pull [D]away the [A]imax.[A] [Asus4] [Asus4]
In the s[G]lot that you s[D]liced through the s[G]cene there was [D]no [A]shyness.[A] [Asus4] [Asus4]
In the p[G]lot that you [D]passed through your [G]teeth there was [D]no [A]pity.
No fade in: [G]film be[D]gins on a [G]kid in the [D]big c[A]ity.[Asus4]
And no [G]cut to a [D]costly pa[G]rade (thatā??s fo[D]r hi[A]m only![A]).[Asus4] [Asus4]
No dis[G]solve to a s[D]liver of g[G]rey (thatā??s hi[D]s new[A] lady[A]!)[Asus4] [Asus4]
G D G D A G D G D Dsus2 A Asus4x3
where she glows just like grain on the flickering pane of some great movie.
Itā??s just [D]a house[G] burning, but itā[D]??s n[A]ot haunt[A]ed[Asus4].[Asus4]
It was your[D] heart [G]hurting, but not [D]for l[A]ong, kid.
In the s[G]ocket you s[D]pin from with e[G]ase there is [D]no s[A]ticking.[A] [Asus4] [Asus4]
[G] [D] [G] [D] [A] [A] [Asus4] [Asus4] 
When the a[G]ir round your c[D]hair fills with [G]heat, thatā??s the[D] flames[A] lickin[A]g[Asus4] [Asus4]
beneath the c[G]lock on the c[D]lean mantelp[G]iece. Itā??s got a[D] calm[A] clicking,[A] [Asus4] [Asus4]
like a p[G]ro at his e[D]diting s[G]uite takes two w[D]eeks s[A]titching [Asus4] up some bad [G]movie.[D]
[G] [D] [Dsus2] [A] [Asus4]  
[G] [D] [G] [D] [Dsus2] [A]
