Black Flowers  Yo La Tengo

"Black Flowers" - Yo La Tengo
- I'm Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass (2006)
I think this sounds better if you transpose the chords down 7 half-steps and play with a
capo on 7, but these are the chords to play without a capo.
Intro and verse: G D Am Am7 C
[Gmaj7] [G]  
[G] You can take what you can [D]get[Am] [Am7] [C] [Gmaj7]
[G] I forgive but I for[D]get[Am] [Am7] [C] [Gmaj7]
[G] [D] [Am] [Am7] [C] [Gmaj7]  
[G] You can never sleep e[D]nough[Am] [Am7] [C] [Gmaj7]
[G] And your alarm is going [D]off[Am] [Am7] [C] [Gmaj7]
You [G]wake up and you can't pretend
A [D]dream was just a dream again
[Am] Won't you [Am7]dry your eyes?[C] [Gmaj7]
But it [G]doesn't matter anymore
You [D]did just what you did before
[Am] Until you [Am7]realize [C] the words
Go [Gmaj7]la la la la [G]la
(Repeat the intro a few times)
You can dip your brain in joy
When you find the real McCoy
When some pretty boys with skinny ties
With black flowers and Valentines
Try to take you home
Do you recognize that I
Have stopped before you get too high
On your own supplies
Singing la la la la
You [C]want it, you [D]got it
You [Em]can't take it [F]home
[G]You got a [F]long way to [C]go
[G]I wait for[D]ever to [Em]say that you [F]will
[G]You have a [F]heart to [Em]show, ohh[C] [D]
[G] [D] [Am] [Am7] [C] [Gmaj7] [G]  
Well you don't have to stay inside
Don't have to run, don't have to hide
Come dry your eyes
You know you can always change your mind
Maybe I will too in time
Once we understand
No one understands at all
Singing la la la la
Singing la la la la
