Black  Pearl Jam


[E]Sheets of empty [A]canvas[Asus4] [A]
untouched [E]sheets of clay[A] [Asus4] [A]
[E]Were laid spread out be[A]fore me
as her [E]body once did
[E]All five hor[A]izons,[Asus4] [A]
revolved a[E]round her soul[A] (as the earth to the [Asus4]sun)[A]
[E]Now the air I [A]tasted and breathed,
has [E]taken a turn  
Oooh [C] and all I taught her was... every[Em]thing
Oooh [C] I know she gave me all... that [Em]she wore
And my [D]bitter hands
Chafe be[C]neath the clouds
Of what was every[Em]thing
Oh the [D]pictures have all been [C]washed in black
Tatooed every[Em]thing.
I [E]take a [A]walk outside[Asus4] [A]
I'm sur[E]rounded by some [A]kids at play[Asus4] [A]
[E]I can feel their [A]laughter
So [E]why do I stare
Ooh [C]And my twisted thoughts they spin round my [Em]head (I'm spinnin')
Oooh I'm [C]spinning how quick the sun can [Em]drop awayayayayay
And my [D]bitter hands
Cradle [C]broken glass    
of what was every[Em]thing
Oh the [D]pictures have all been [C]washed in black
[Em]Tatooed everything
Oh A [D]love gone bad
turned my [C]world to black
tatooed all [D]I see
All that [C]I am
Or wil ever [Em]beeeeee    yeaahheah
I [D]know some day you'll have a beautiful life
I [C]know you'll be a star,
In [Em]somebody elses sky, [D]whyhy, whyhy   [C]whyhy
can't it be, can't it be [Em]mine.

It is most definitely "I know you'll be a star" and the Em are correct. Listen to the song. The Es and Ems are very distinctive. PJ uses a lot of minor chords, its part if their signature sound.

braniacphil (report)

"Or wil ever" should be "All I'll be"

and ALL the Em chords should be E chords. Seriously.

Both of your suggestions use them at your own will and purpose. They both sound good and im almost positive Mr. Vedder wont mind or much care at all !!!

shaylyn (report)

I'm almost positive that the lyrics in the last verse should be "i know you'll be a sun"
