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


Streamline  System of a Down

____________________
/ System of a Down / I think this song is about a deeply drug-addicted person,
/ Streamline / who has lost his love as he let it down. The drugs made him
/ Steal This Album! / blind ('snow'-blind) and he couldn't pull himself out of the
/___________________/ addiction, which eventually left him alone.
I've added a few finger indications (which finger to use) below the tab charts
to help newcomers (the few newcomers who can cut through the clutter, of course):
1 = Index finger
2 = Middle finger
3 = Ring finger
4 = Pinky finger
T = Thumb (not used in this song, anyways)
Note that the finger indications (as well as the chords) are only displayed the first
time the particular riff is displayed.

I wasn't there for you
I wasn't there for you
I know weather's gonna be fine
But I can't see you cross the streamline
My love waits for me in daytime
But I can't see you through the snowblind
You are gone
I wasn't there for you
Goodbyes are long
I wasn't there for you
Goodbye
I know time reveals in hindsight
I can wrestle with the stormy night
Because your love lasts a lifetime
But I can't see you through the snowblind
I wasn't there for you, I wasn't there
I wasn't there for you
I wasn't there for you
You are gone
I wasn't there for you
Goodbyes are long
I wasn't there for you
Goodbye
Goodbye
