I Want to Know Your Plans Say Anything
Hey everybody. This is my first contribution to Ultimate Guitar, but I've
been transcribing songs for years. I normally take chords from this site and
fix them for my own personal use, but this time I thought I'd put my hard
work to use.
This song in particular has some great tab already out there but I looked and
found no decent chords for it (my personal favorite medium for sheet music).
Here's my attempt. Should be pretty close. If you want the exact lines for
the guitar part check out some tabs on this site.
The chords here are semi tricky depending on your personal experience. I'm
posting up to 3 different versions of the chords. The first is the general
chord shape (i.e. standard Em7). The second is the alternate version -
essentially as close as I could get to what the artist is actually playing.
The third is the simplified version for beginners (i.e. Gmaj7 ---> G).
This is a great song, hope everyone enjoys it!

[Gmaj7]I want to [D7]know your [Gmaj7]plans [D7]
[Gmaj7]and how in[D7]volved in them[Gmaj7] I am.[D7]
[Gmaj7]When I [D7]go to s[Gmaj7]leep for g[D7]ood
[Am7]will I be forg[Dsus]iven?
And If you want [Am7]rose[Cmaj7/B]s [C]
you can go buy a bou[G]que[C]t.[G]
If that just won[Am7]'t c[Cmaj7/B]ut it, [C]
well what can I [Em7]say?[Gmaj7] [Em7]
You're what [Cadd9]keeps me be[Em7]lieving th[G]e world's not g[Am7]one dead,
[Cadd9]Strength in my [Em7]bones put the[G] words in m[Am7]y head.
When they [Cadd9]pour out to [Em7]paper, it'[G]s all fo[Cadd9]r you.
'Cause that's what you d[G]o. [C] [Em] [D]
That's what you [G]do.[C] [Em] [D]
(same chords as verse 1)
I want to know your fears
from your feet to the back of your ears
and when they raise the landing gear
will your heart stay here?
(same chords as pre-chorus 1)
If you could forgive me
for being so brash, well you...
you could hit me or whip me
I'd savor each lash.
[Em]No more f[Am7add4]ighting.
this [G/B]is only a [Cadd9]waste of our t[G]ime
[Em]'cause soon we'll be [Am7add9]leaving.
[Cadd9]Will this strength [Cmaj7add9]still be mine?
[G]I'll loo[C]k out [Em]for y[D]ou 't[G]il I d[C]ie, 'ti[Em]l I rot[D].
[G]I'll r[C]emembe[Em]r you [D]'til I [G]die, u[C]ntil I [D]rot.[C]
