All These Things  Darren Hanlon

I believe this matches the recording. Apologies if the lyrics aren't correct but I
transcribed them by ear.
The song is practically 4 chords the entire way through - listen to the song for timing.
Comments & corrections welcome.
C G Dm F x2
[C]Fr[G]om[Dm] ev[F]ery shadow they are things that follow you
From your late night dead end job from the old neighborhoods where you grew
There's a falling satellite (The thought keeps me awake at night)
There's a chocolate fondue (There's no nutritional value)
There's a ground invasion (with complete colour co-ordination)
There's a sleepover screen (A bed is not a trampoline)
There's a hymn with a hand on the heart
[C]An[G]d [Dm]all[F] these things will follow you
[C]An[G]d [Dm]all[F] t[C]he[G]se[Dm] th[F]ings will follow you
[C]C [G]G [Dm]Dm [F]F [C]x4
[C]St[G]ay[Dm]ing[F] locked inside all day is no big deal
But I'm yet to read a travel brochure that could change the way I feel
It's suffocating in the car (It's just the way some families are)
It's a book you'll get around to read (It's a pet that you forgot to feed)
It's an ex-boyfriend you can't forget (a godparent you never met)
[C]It[G]'s[F] t[G]he fear that began if one single Elvis fan
[C]Co[G]ul[F]d [G]be[F] w[G]ro[F]ng[G] the other forty nine odd million screaming others also can, aaah
[C]An[G]d [Dm]tho[F]se things will follow you
And those things will follow you
[C]An[G]d [F]the lights will shine right through
[C]So[G] w[Dm]hen[F] you open up your eyes they will know you when you do
[G]C [Am]G Dm F x4
[C]Di[G]d [Dm]you[F] steal my pen I left it here? (You mean the one behind you ear?)
You're just a piece of work that's all (Take me and hang me on the wall)
Away from where the guards linger (You touched the painting with your finger)
And I was placed under gallery arrest (It's a chance to wear your Sunday best)
[C]An[G]d [F]lo[G]ok sharp on the stand and raise my right shaking hand
[C]An[G]d [F]sw[G]ea[F]r [G]ev[F]er[G]ything I say is true on first edition copy of Peter Pan, aaah
[C]Wh[G]en[Dm] yo[F]u open up your eyes they will know you when they do
When you open up your eyes everyone will know it's you.
