A Camera Lens and Careful Days Lydia
Intro: D, Bm, A
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/lydia/a_camera_lens_and_careful_days_crd.html )
[D] It's always blue and black or breaking skin,
Well cover up girl we'll finally leave aga[Bm]in.
And you bre[A]ath me in so well,
[D]In your room under the cover of this night.
We are safe; we are, as long as[Bm] you whisper.
But my ey[A]e was caught by your picture.
[A]That's hanging from your mirror,
Like something you forgot.[Bm]
I'll say that we couldn't sleep just staring at the clock.[A]
But when numbers seem to blur and the reflection is lost. [Bm]
Anything is love as you stare into your box.[A]
[D]So now we're used to the rain.
We can swim and I'll say we were, n[Bm]ever worried.
Because the [A]floods will only bring the[D] coast, and Atlantic closer.
[Bm]I thought I told you girl.
I thought I[A] showed you the reason.
That all I truly want is to get in your head.
[A]And steal your imagery.
So we can both go [Bm]to your second story house.
You would never believe this s[A]now.
It's so heavy on our lungs.
[Bm]But it's creeping up your walls and closing down the road[A]s.
But I swear I'm loving while.
I swear I still will [Bm]hide away from the cold.[A]
[D]"I think that for me, everyday would be the last day of summer.
Or I'd be left out in the cold, with no place to go.
[Bm]Because, there are very few people that I can rel[A]ate to
to every day of my life, forever, th[D]at will understand me,
Because I've gone places where very few people ever go.
[Bm]I mean, I played the ultimate gamble of all; I gambled my life."
[A]"You're fine, go back to work and we'll let you know when she comes.".
Interlude: A, Bm (Leave the E string ringing)
[A] I swear we're almost there and we'll be safe inside[Bm]
[A] Down those stairs to your room where I could stay for days[Bm]
[A] Substance is over us, please don't do this[Bm]
[A] 'Cause this may never change, oh, but I'm still here, here[Bm]
It's all the same[A]
Outro: D, Bm, A
