Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.

The Recluse  Cursive

This Version is derived from here
now all you need is someone who can play the cello.....
Anything in parenthesis is optional or implied by the lyric,
absolutely feel free to play what feels good.
chords: and as a possible
substitute for Dmin7no5
Ebmaj7 Dmin Dmin7no5 Gmin Fmaj (D7no5)

Bass notes on the E string are optional if you wish to add them,
I didn't because the song simply feels too sedate for that nonsense.
For the simple people.....
Capo: 3rd fret
Ebmaj7 Dmin Dmin7no5 Gmin Fmaj (D7no5)

Ebmaj7 Dmin x8
I [Ebmaj7] wake [(Dmin)]alone
in a [(Ebmaj7)] woman's room I [(Dmin)]hardly know.
I [Ebmaj7] wake a[Dmin]lone
and [Ebmaj7]pretend that I am [Dmin]finally home.
The [Ebmaj7]room is l[Dmin]ittered
with her [Ebmaj7]books and [Dmin]notebooks
I i[Ebmaj7]magine [Dmin]what they say, like,
[Ebmaj7]"Shoo fly don't [Dmin]bother me."
I[Ebmaj7] can hardly get my[Dmin]self out of the [Ebmaj7] bed
for [Dmin]fear of [Ebmaj7]never lying [Dmin] in this bed a[Ebmaj7]gain.
Oh [Dmin]Christ, I'm
[Ebmaj7]Oh no,
oh God.
[Gmin]I am.
Ebmaj7 Dmin x8
[(Ebmaj7)]How'd I end [(Dmin)] up here to begin [(Ebmaj7)] with?
I [(Dmin)]don't know.
[(Ebmaj7)]Why do I s[(Dmin)]tart what I can't [(Ebmaj7)]finish?
Oh [(Dmin)]please don't [Ebmaj7]barrage me
with the [Dmin]questions
to [Ebmaj7]all those ugly [Dmin]answers.
My [Ebmaj7]ego's like my [Dmin]stomach,
it keeps [Ebmaj7]shitting what I [Dmin]feed it.
But [Ebmaj7]maybe I don't want to f[Dmin]inish any[Ebmaj7]thing anym[Dmin]ore.
[Ebmaj7]Maybe I can wait in [Dmin]bed 'til she comes [Ebmaj7]home
and [Dmin]whispers,
[Ebmaj7]"You're in my [Gmin] web [Fmaj]now,
[Ebmaj7]I've come to [Gmin]wrap you up tight
'til it's [Fmaj]time to bite down."
D#maj7 Dmin x8
I[(Ebmaj7)(Dmin)] wake alone
in a [(Ebmaj7)] woman's room I [(Dmin)]hardly know.
I[(Ebmaj7)(Dmin)] wake alone
and p[(Emaj7)]retend that I am [(Dmin)] finally home.
Ebmaj7 Dmin x8
Continue with "home"
end on the note G
(E string 3rd fret, 0 on e string for the capo)
