The Answer Blue October
Blue Octboer is God's gift to modern day rock.
The meat of this song is really in the bass line, which I'm not cool enough to
transcribe, but have fun strumming and singing. also, i've never tabbed out a
song before, so sorry if it's messy.
Intro: Am Em G Am (a couple of times
[Am]If I could crawl in[Em]side of you
[G]I'm laughing with a [Am]broken face
[Am]I stumble across my[Em] self esteem
[G]But to picture the pleasure is making me [Am]want my space
[C]that God wrapped [Am]like a bow
But in my head ...
[C]There's some shelves that need cleaning from basement to ceiling
Verse 2: (same Am - Em - G - Am)
If what you're seeing is an open book
that's great well I'm an open book, but i'm real shy.
There's a part of me seeking and desperately needing to open up.
That's strange 'cause i'm an open book, a confused boy.
CHORUS: (Am - Em - G - Am again.)
[Am]I'm an automatic steeple for depressed and lonely people
[Em]my heart while in it's cage, is used to giving and not recieve a thing
[G]but the only funny thing, is that i don't know how to give myself
[Am]I've got this post traumatic thing I've got this tatoo of a ring that lies
[Em]Around my wedding finger, that's where I'd like to state this claim
[G]that i gotta learn to live and dream before I go and get myself
[C]In love ... before, before, before I go and get myself
VERSE 3: (Am-Em-G-Am)
[Am]There's Zoloft, Wellbutrin, there's Paxil that's groovin'
[Em]no side effects.
[G]But the rest left unnamed 'cause they worked like a charm
[Am]but when your savings is drying you can't stop from crying
[Em]You gotta suck it up.
[G]you're not her buttercup, you'r not her
