Verse:
[Am]God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
[C]Remembering when you were mine, [G]In a still suburban town
[Am]When every thursday I'd brave those mountain passes
[C]And you'd skip your early classes, [G]And we'd learn how our bodies worked.
*Repeat intro*
[Am]God damn the black night with all it's foul temptation
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/death_cab_for_cutie/we_looked_like_giants_acoustic_tab.html )
[C]I become what I always hated, [G]When I was with you then
[Am]We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
[C]Fumbling to make contact, [G]As the others slept inside
Chorus:
[Am]And together there, [F]In a shroud of frost, the mountain air
[G]Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
[Am]And I held you closer [F]than anyone would ever [G]get[E]
*Repeat Intro*
[G]Do you remember the JAMC? And reading aloud from magazines
[G]I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me
[F]I've never been too good with secrets.
[G]No...[F]
[Am]And together there, [F]In a shroud of frost, the mountain air
[G]Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
[F]And I held you closer...

There are a couple ways to play this one. This one seems to be the easiest and
most accurate for me.
ENJOY!
