Adventures in Solitude  The New Pornographers
I haven?t put all of the chords over the first letter of the word
because many of the words are sung slightly before the chord. I hope
this makes sense. I put brackets around chords where the song stays on
the same chord through two measures, but doesn?t emphasize it the
second time. Any suggestions, especially lyrical, are welcome. There
are a few extras at the bottom.
C D G C C D G [G]
Balancing [C]on, one wounded w[D]ing
So clean me [G]up, shove the never end[C]ing
C D G [G]
The best of the vampish marbles are gathered inside your door
More than [C]begin, but less than for[D]get
What spirit [G]born from the not happened [C]yet
C D G [G]
Gathering there to pay off a debt from back from the wars
We thought we lo[C]st you [D] We thought we lo[G]st you[C]
C D G [G]
We thought we lost you Welcome back
C D G [G]
Sleeping for [C]years through what is [D]left
Through the pieces that [G]fell and rose from the de[C]pth
C D G [G]
From the ring water well deep as a secret nobody knows
Less than for[C]get but more than be[D]gun
These adventures in s[G]olitude never [C]done
C D G [G]
To the names of our wounds we send the same blood back from the wars
We thought we lo[C]st you [D] We thought we lo[G]st you[C]
C D G [G]
We thought we lost you It will all come back
C D G C C D G [G]
(I can?t tell what?s being sung in this next part, so until I can find
some lyrics, I?m just going to put the chords and some timing. I put
a guess at the lyrics in the extra notes. 4 beats to a measure.
Note Em and D only get half a measure.)
[1]Bm[2] [3] [4] [1]Em[2] [3]D [4] [1]C [2] [3] [4] [1]G [2] [3] [4] x3
[Bm] [Em] [D] [C] [C]  
[C]C [D]D [G]G [C] [G]
Repeat all that
Extra notes:
If you play the piano, I think the verses use C 2nd inversion,
D 2nd inversion, and G 1st inversion. Start with middle C in the
middle and it should fall into place.
Someone?s quietly plucking a guitar in the intro and
first verse (that I can hear), and here?s what s/he?s playing.
C D G C (or [G] second time)
 0---0--0-----------------0---0--0---0------------ repeat

Sometimes the guitar does this
(this part quieter)

Here?s my wild guess for the lyrics on the last part. Chords I don?t mind,
but I hate figuring out lyrics.
I know you [Bm]want to... [Em]wait for, [D]wait for,
[C] and now it?s come at a [G]bad time
some cold [Bm]lays, some countless [Em]ways[D] [C]
[C] For all we know[G]
I know you [Bm]need to breathe through [Em]my mouth, [D]come to
[C] but it?s come at a [G]bad time
Some how a [Bm]fly in the tangle of [Em]days[D]
[C] For all we know[G]
