This Is a Fire Door Never Leave Open  The Weakerthans



Tabbed by: Pat Malavi
Tuning: Standard
Capo 5th fret
Cmaj9 / C (repeat 16 times)
F (repeat 16 times)
Switch between Cmaj9 and C by hammering the 2nd fret on the 4th string
Cmaj9 X3001X
C X3201X
Verse 1:
[C]Headlights [Em]race towards the [F]corner of the dining room
[C]Half il[Em]luminate a [F]face before they disappear
[C]You breathe in [Em]forty years of [F]failing to describe a feeling
[C]I breathe out [Em]smoke against the [F]window, trace the letters in your [G]name
[G]Our letters sound the [F]same full of all our changing
[G]That isn't change at [F]all, all straight lines circle [Cmaj9]sometime
Verse 2:
[C]You said [Em]somewhere there's a [F]box full of replacement parts to
[C]All the [Em]tenderness we've [F]broken or let rust away
[C]Somewhere [Em]sympathy is [F]more than just a way of leaving
[C]Somewhere [Em]someone says I'm [F]sorry, someone's making plans to [G]stay
[G]So tell me it's o[F]kay, tell me anything or
[G]Show me there's a [F]pull unassailable
That will [C]lead you there from the dark alone
To be[F]nevolence that you've never known
Or you [Am]knew when you were [Em]four and can't re[F]member
Where a [C]small knife tears out those sloppy seams
And the [F]silence knows what you silence means
And your [Am]metaphors as [Em]mixed as you can [F]make them, are linked like days to[Cmaj9]gether
[C] [Em] [F]  
[G]I still hear trains at [F]night, when the wind is right I
[G]Remember every[F]thing, lick and thread this string
That will [C]never mend you or tailor more
Than a [F]memory of a kitchen floor
or the [Am]fire door that [Em]we kept propping [F]open
And I [C]love this place, the enormous sky
And the [F]faces, hands that I'm haunted by
So [Am]why can't I forgive these [F]buildings, these frameworks labeled [Cmaj9]home
[C]Headlights [Em]race towards the [F]corner of the dining room
[C]Half il[Em]luminate a [F]face before they disappear
