Adventure Club - Collect Call Remix (Metric)

Wonderful dubstep track. Adventure Club never disappoints.



Here is the original track:



LYRICS:

If the fire's out baby, How you gonna keep me warm?
Supposing you let me, with the door wide open no one can leave

I know its a lie, I want it to be true
The rest of the ride is riding on you
Over goodbyes we'll buy some place

For wishing you could
Keep me closer, I'm a lazy dancer, when you move I move with you
Keep me closer, I'm a lazy dancer, when you move I move with you

If somebody's got soul...You've got to make them move

I know it's a lie, I want it to be true
The rest of the ride is riding on you
Over goodbyes we'll buy some place

For wishing you could
Keep me closer, I'm a lazy dancer, when you move I move with you
Keep me closer, I'm a lazy dancer, when you move I move with you

Pedro the Lion - Penetration

Thanks to Erin Solari for submitting this wonderful track!!



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Have you ever seen an idealist
With grey hairs on his head
Or successful men who keep in touch
With unsuccessful friends?

You only think you do
I could have sworn I saw it too
But as it turns out,
It was just a clever ad for cigarettes

Cause if it isn't making dollars
Then it isn't making sense
If you aren't moving units
Then you're not worth the expense
If you really want to make it
You had best remember this
If it isn't penetration
Then it isn't worth a kiss

We're so sorry, sir,
But you did not quite make the cut this time,
and we'd appriciate it if you'd cleared
your stuff on out by five

Don't take it personal
Everyone knows you did your best
If it makes it easier,
you should look at things from our perspective

Cause if it isn't making dollars
Then it isn't making sense
If you aren't moving units
Then you're not worth the expense
If you really want to make it
You had best remember this
If it isn't penetration
Then it isn't worth a kiss

Lucy Rose - Red Face

A great track from Lucy Rose. Her voice is so serene and peaceful. A breath of fresh air. I suppose it helps that she is adorable. Check out some of the other fantastic tracks from Lucy Rose. This acoustic version of Red Face is perfection. Her is a bit of background on Lucy Rose:

Lucy Rose Parton (born 28 June 1989), known as Lucy Rose, is an English singer-songwriter from Warwickshire. She contributed vocals on the Bombay Bicycle Club albums, Flaws and A Different Kind of Fix. Her solo debut album, Like I Used To was released in September 2012.



LYRICS:

I don’t care
What the people may say
‘Cause it’s just the sun
Rising again

So I’ll take a trip
To the back of my mind
See what is there
What will I find

You’ve got trouble searching for you
And you said:
“Everything will be the same”
“Look here, everything is gonna change”
And you said:
“It’s what I needed”
I don’t believe it

I don’t care
What the people may say
Point out my flaws
I already know

So I’ll driver away
Back to the heart
Of where I grew up
Back to the start

You’ve got trouble searching for you
And you said:
“Everything will be the same”
“Look here, everything is gonna change”
And you said:
“It’s what I needed”
I don’t believe it

Take what you wanted
Leave what you didn’t need
x7

Take what you want
Leave what you didn’t need

Take what you wanted
Leave what you didn’t need

And the things that went wrong, in a matter of speaking
Should have been more forthcoming about the things I needed to say
But you've seen to be talking to someone else

Now you've got me feeling so sorry
For something I didn't do
You've got me crawlin around a gutter
When I should have been busy making love to you

So it's all smoothed over
You covered your ears real tight
Is it up to me to be telling
The black from the white

Talkin to you is bittersweet
Now Talkin to you is bittersweet
Now Talkin to you is bittersweet
Bittersweet bittersweet
Talking to you is bittersweet
Bittersweet bittersweet

Been now talkin to you
Bittersweet bittersweet

C'mon talk talk talk talk
To me yeah

So what matters most in the end is beyond our big (blue reeds)???
Had to unfold all the mysteries
It take a different kind of species
I'm unable to handle the weight
Of all of your doubts
What a (new words)???

Now you've got me feeling so stupid
When I couldn't understand
You've got me reeling around in circles
Incomprehensible demand

Been talkin to you
Bittersweet bittersweet
Been talkin to you
Bittersweet bittersweet
Bittersweet bittersweet
Bittersweet bittersweet

C'mon talk talk talk talk

Ben Howard - Further Away

Another fantastic track from Ben Howard. He never ceases to amaze. Check out this great live acoustic version I just love.

Please let me know if like this track and as always, let me know what you love and maybe it will be featured :-)

Cheers!



GUITAR TAB (Guitar Pro 5 needed)

LYRICS:

My father he told me what goes around,
Comes, comes around again
The faces you see on the way up
Are those on the way back down, my friend
But you've been climbing shoulders around you
Trying to reach the big blue sky
And all above you is just the blackness, darling
And everything below you dies
And everything below you dies

You've been growing up
You've been growing on
Further away from us now
[x2]

And nobody gives a f*ck about you
Tell you it's a damn shame
The prettiest eyes in the whole world
The same fool in the same game
The same fool in the same game

You've been growing up
You've been growing on
Further away from us now
[x3]

Goo Goo Dolls - Before Its Too Late

Yea yea....it was on the Transformers sounds track.. But it is still a fantastic song and the Goo Good Dolls will always be one of my favorite artists. Let me know what you think of this particular song.

Cheers!



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

I wander through fiction to look for the truth
Buried beneath all the lies
and I stood at a distance
To feel who you are
Hiding myself in your eyes

And

[Chorus:]
hold on before it's too late
We'll run till we leave this behind
Don't fall just be who you are
It's all that we need in our lives

and the risk that might break you
Is the one that would save
A life you don't live is still lost
So stand on the edge with me
Hold back your fear and see
Nothing is real 'til it's gone

[Chorus]

So live like you mean it
Love 'til you feel it
It's all that we need in our lives
So stand on the edge with me
Hold back your fear and see
Nothing is real 'til it's gone

[Chorus x2]

It's all that we need in our lives
It's all that I need in my life

Brand New - Play Crack The Sky

From one of the greatest bands of all time comes this classic. Thanks so much to Erin Solari for submitting. Also check out this amazing photo thanks to Erin :-)

Cheers!



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

We sent out the S.O.S. call.
It was a quarter past four, in the morning
When the storm broke our second anchor line.
Four months at sea. Four months of calm seas {only}
To be pounded in the shallows off the tip of Montauk Point.

They call 'em rogues. They travel fast and alone.
One hundred foot faces of God's good ocean gone wrong.
What they call love is a risk,
'Cause you will always get hit
Out of nowhere by some wave
And end up on your own.

The hole in the hull defied the crew’s attempts,
To bail us out.
And flooded the engines and radio,
And half buried bow.

Your tongue is a rudder.
It steers the whole ship.
Sends your words past your lips
Or keeps them safe behind your teeth.
But the wrong words will strand you.
Come off course while you sleep.
Sweep your boat out to sea
Or dashed to bits on the reef.

The vessel groans
The ocean pressures its frame.
To the port I see the lighthouse
Through the sleet and the rain.
And I wish for one more day to give my
Love and repay debts.
But the morning finds our bodies washed up thirty miles west.

They say that the captain stays fast with the ship,
Through still and storm,
But this ain't the Dakota,
And the water's so cold,
{We} won't have to fight for long.

(This is the end.)
This story's old but it goes on and on until we disappear,
(This is the calm.)
Calm me and let me taste the salt you breathed while you were underneath,
(We are the risen.)
I am the one who haunts your dreams of mountains sunk below the sea,
(After the storm.)
I spoke the words but never gave a thought to what they all could mean,
(Rest in the deep.)
I know that this is what you want, a funeral keeps both of us apart.
(Washed up on the beach.)
You know that you are not alone, I need you like water in my lungs.
[x2]

This is the end.


...You never do see any other way...

Vieem - If Only You'd Know

Thanks to Kaee for submitting :-) Please leave some comments if you like it.



LYRICS:

Talk of the jester I have been
Talk of the fool given damn about
Talk of attention I did seek
Talk of the lack you shown no regard
To chance that I took
Stakes that I staked
Thoughts in my head
That someway there's maybe
Mask that I wore
Masking what I feel
But truth that I face
Revealing thing is

You don't know me
You don't want me
You don't hear me
No at all
You walk by me
Recognize me
You smear side me
Than just go
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
You'd know

Think how embivalent must feel
To not exist seem invisible
Talk of the hurt weight it placed on me
Talk of your careless while I lay marred

Truth it be told
That can hide the thing is

You don't know me
You don't want me
You don't hear me
No at all
You walk by me
Recognize me
You smear side me
Than just go
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
You'd Know

The question could I cause
The question could I pause
To stare the grid straight
Peering through your own eyes
And the moment when I coped
Is is the moment when I stopped
And dealt with this plan mishap of mine

You don't know me
You don't want me
You don't hear me
No at all
You walk by me
Recognize me
You see side me
Than just go
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
You'd know

Benjamin Francis Leftwich - 1904

I admire Benjamin Francis Leftwich. So pure and wonderful. He sounds the same live as he does on his album. It is just fantastic.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

All of our friends survive
when a plane crashed their minds
and in 1904 i found
some real, real strength from my ground

you look at me, with your old old eyes
that you used to
look at your god, in old old ways
have you lost your way?

all of our thoughts collide
when our hearts melt inside
and in that place, i saw
the cold dark diamond, on the cold dark floor

you look at me, with your old old eyes
that you used to
look at your god, in old old ways
you've lost your way

The Verve Pipe - The Freshman

An amazing song. Never gets old. Tell me what this song reminds you of or what great memories you may have with this tune. Its not hard to play on guitar and is great to play when you are just relaxing with friends. Listen Learn Love.



GUITAR TAB

GUITAR CHORDS

LYRICS:

When I was young I knew everything
And she, a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now I'm guilt-stricken, sobbin' with my head on the floor
Stopped a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, no

Can't be held responsible
She was touchin' her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I can not believe we'd ever die
For these sins
We were merely freshmen

My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
His girl took a week's worth of valium and slept
And now he's guilt-stricken, sobbin'
With his head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really wept he said

Can't be held responsible
She was touchin' her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I can not believe we'd ever die
For these sins
We were merely freshmen

We tried to wash our hands of all of this
We'd never talk of our lacking relationships
And how we're guilt-stricken sobbin' with our heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip we'd say

Can't be held responsible
She was touchin' her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I can not believe we'd ever die
For these sins
We were merely freshmen
We were merely freshmen
We were only freshmen

Flux Pavilion - Digital Controller

Another classic dubstep track. Let me know if you like it. As always, turn the bass up!!!



LYRICS:

We met online
Talk all the time
Said he'd been mine
I know he's lying
Watched him undress
Made him confess
Why does he care
But is he good
Look what you've made
I've gone and fallen
There's no more need
I know he needs
There is a secret
Nobody knows
You are a freak
I saw you wearing

You freak, you creep, you digital controller
You're like, that's right, a digital controller
[4x]

Made your top on your profile page
Lookin for freaks want to be my craze
How many hits can you get today
Turns the lights off, fade away
Logging on to be center stage
Got a wife but you're in a phase
How many girls can you get today
Wipe the makeup and fade away

You freak, you creep, you digital controller
You're like, that's right, my digital controller

You Me and Apollo - Manners

Great lyrics and an even better message. You cannot force love. It just is. Listen and let me know what you think :-).



LYRICS:

Rest your head on the table as liquor gathers at the edges of your mouth
And I could guess who you would asked for company
A comforting word or two

From the lips of the girl
Well, I don't love you as much as you love me
Baby, I'm asking you to try
But I won't make you
I won't make you

Rest your head on the table as the phone vibrates parallel to your eyes
And I could guess who is calling but surprise is your thing

(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)
From the lips of the girl
(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)
Well, I don't love you as much as you love me
(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)
Baby, I'm asking you to try
(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)
But I won't make you
(Hey beautiful, I...)
I won't make you

From the lips of the girl
(Hey, beautiful, I miss my angel)
Well, I don't love as much as you love me
(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)
I'm asking you to try
(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)
But I won't make you
(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)
But I won't make you
(Hey beautiful, I miss my angel)

Margot & The Nuclear So & So's - A Light On A Hill

Thanks Jessica for the wonderful suggestion. This song is fantastic. I love it.
It haunts the subtle emotions of your mind and leads you to believe there is something more in this world. A light at the end of the tunnel. This band is so ingenious and pure. Thanks



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

That's no way to live
all tangled up like balls of string.
And we woke at dawn
and watched the sun glide over the hill.

I just said the first
three words that popped into my head.
Let me off the bus; I'm tired and soar and should probably change clothes.
And the circuits are blown,
my woman is cold,
our children are stoned and worthless.
All waiting for you to tell them the truth. The truth is a line, that you'll never use.

And her dignity
shown so bright like a light on a hill.
And she burned for me,
and no other man came near the flame.
And back country songs the defeaning twang of the rich-white-kid blues
You can own the stage,
but the lights and glares will not make you real.

She whispers to me, I was meant to be free.
This life that we've built is deadly.
She crawls from my bed, with a comb cross her head.
She crawls to the train and drives herself home

The Verve Pipe - Happiness Is

Thanks to "mittens&whiskers" for submitting it. Please let us know what you think :-)



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

The world is giving you the run-around
And leaves you feeling low and let down but
Happiness is
Wherever you find it
I'm not waiting for a friend beside me
Or for the lord above to guide me
My happiness is
Wherever I find it
And I wanna find it with you
Have you ever felt so out of place
That the smile on your face
Was to keep from cryin'
I don't know how we get so out of touch
But I don't want much
Just to find out
What happiness is
While everybody else is winning
You're stuck waiting for your new beginning
So happiness is
Wherever you find it
You may be full of life's frustrations
But I'm up for negotiations
My happiness is
Wherever I find it
And I wanna find it with you
Have you ever felt...
If you got your lucky break and broke it
I guess you've got your options open
But happiness is
Wherever you find it...yeah
And I wanna find it with you
Have you ever felt so out of place
That the smile on your face
Was to keep from cryin'
I don't know how we get so out of touch
But I don't want much
Just to keep on tryin'
People say a prayer every day
That they end up with more than their next door neighbor
I'm not buying all their ego trips
But I'll get my kicks
When I find out
What happiness is

Bright Eyes - First Day Of My Life

Classic and still amazing. This song will never die and Conor Oberst is a genius. Feel free to leave a comment if your a fan of Bright Eyes.

Listen.Learn.Love



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours was the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

So I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever, I am especially slow
But I realized how I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

I remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
You felt as if you just woke up

And you said,
"This is the first day of my life.
Glad I didn't die before i met you.
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you.
And I'd probably be happy."

So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling,
We'll just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery

Besides, maybe this time is different
I mean, I really think you like me

Bon Iver - I Can't Make You Love Me

This cover is so beautiful. Bon Iver is great and his voice truly melts the words he sings. Let me know what you think of this masterpiece.



GUITAR TAB


LYRICS:

Turn down the lights;
Turn down the bed.
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.

Lay down with me;
Tell me no lies.
Just hold me close;
Don't patronize.

Don't patronize me.

[Chorus:]
'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.
You can't make your heart feel
Something it won't.
Here in the dark
In these final hours,
I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power;
But you won't.
No, you won't.
'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.

I'll close my eyes,
Then I won't see
The love you don't feel
When you're holding me.

Morning will come,
And I'll do what's right;
Just give me till then
To give up this fight.

And I will give up this fight.

[Chorus]

Colbie Caillat - I Never Told You

Great version of a great song. Check it out. I'm sure there are lots of us that have the feelings this song portrays. If this song has had any affect on you. Leave a comment

Cheers!



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

I miss those blue eyes
How you kissed me at night
I miss the way we sleep
Like there's no sunrise
Like the taste of your smile
I miss the way we breathe

But I never told you
What I should have said
No I never told you
I just held it in
And now I miss everything
About you
I can't believe I still want you
After all the things we've
Been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

I see your blue eyes
Every time I close mine
You make it hard to see
Where I belong to when I'm not
Around you
It's like I'm not with me

But I never told you
What I should have said
No I never told you
I just held it in
And now I miss everything
About you
I can't believe I still want
You
After all the things we've
Been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

But I never told you
What I should have said
No I never told you
I just held it in
And now I miss everything
About you
(still you're gone)
Can't believe that I still want
You
After all the things we've
Been through
I miss everything about you
Without you

David's Lyre - English Roses

Just ran across this video while watching some acoustic sessions of my favorite artists. I think its great. Let me know what you think. I couldnt find the lyrics online so I transcribed them below for everyone.
Cheers



LYRICS:

I'll take my jacket off
Only if we'll stay awhile
your mind was made up
drivin' round to pass the time
all through my childhood
I walked these street spies every day
For this place is changing
The shadow of what I would claim

I think about the gardens roam
amongst the english roses
there stood the place we owned
surrounded by the houses

They set it on fire
dont look back we'll flee from the city
We'll fight our desire
dont look back for fear that we'll turn to stone

I hear my hearts cry
to my head, my hands, my feet
speaks of the city
this feast I'll find my table seat
they'll find our abscence
two empty chair perverse our names
For this place is changing
The shadow of what I would claim

I think about the gardens roam
amongst the english roses
there stood the place we owned
surrounded by the houses

They set it on fire
dont look back we'll flee from the city
We'll fight our desire
dont look back for fear that we'll turn to...

They set it on fire
dont look back we'll flee from the city
We'll fight our desire
dont look back for fear that we'll turn to stone

Ben Howard - Black Flies

Amazing!!! Ben Howard conveys so much emotion in his songs. Every squint of his eyes shows his passion for the music he creates. I'm pretty sure if God had an iPod, this would be on it.
Please support this artist and let me know what you think.

Cheers!



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Black flies on the windowsill
That we are
That we are
That we are to know
Winter stole summer's thrill
And the river's cracked and cold

See the sky is no man's land
A darkened plume to stay
Hope here needs a humble hand
Not a fox found in your place

And no man is an island, oh this I know
But can't you see, oh?
Maybe you were the ocean, when I was just a stone

Black flies on the windowsill
That we are
That we are
That we are to hold
Comfort came against my will
And every story must grow old

Still I'll be a traveler
A gypsy's reins to face
But the road is wearier
With that fool found in your place

And no man is an island, oh this I know
But can't you see, oh?
Maybe you were the ocean, when I was just a stone
[x2]

And I don't wanna beg your pardon
And I don't wanna ask you why
But if I was to go my own way
Would I have to pass you by?
[x2]

Benjamin Francis Leftwich - Atlas Hands

This song is fantastic. So simple and soothing. Benjamin just makes the emotion flow so effortlessly. I could listen to this all day. Support this wonderful artist and check out his other stuff here: http://www.benjaminfrancisleftwich.com/



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Take me to the docks, there's a ship without a name
It is sailing to the middle of the sea
The water there is deeper than anything you've ever seen
...Jump right in and swim until you freeze

I will remember your face
'Cause I am still in love with that place
But when the stars are the only things we share
Will you be there?

Money came like rain to your hands while you were waiting
For that cold long promsie to appear
People in the churches started singing above their hands
They say "My God is a good God and he cares"

I will remember your face
'Cause I am still in love with that place
When the stars are the only things we share
Will you be there?

I've got a plan
I've got an atlas in my hands
I'm gonna turn when I listen to the lessons that I've learned

Gotye - Somebody That I Used To Know

This song is great and the emotion behind it is quite moving. Gotye has a great voice and when you get to the chorus you will understand. The live versions are great as well, showing it isn't just recorded well. Kimbra adds a nice touch and her voice is great for the agony reflected in the song. The chords aren't difficult at all and it is quite fun to learn and sing. You may need to go an octave lower in the chorus though if you don't wanna belt it :-). I have included two versions below which are both covers. One is from Ron Pope and the other is by Walk off the Earth.

Here is some info about Gotye:

Wouter "Wally" De Backer (born 21 May 1980), also known professionally by his stage name Gotye, (pronounced Go-te-yae), is a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter. The name "Gotye" is derived from "Gaultier" (or "Gautier" or "Gauthier",) the French equivalent of "Wouter" ("Walter" in English.) Gotye's voice has been compared to Sting and Peter Gabriel, some fans even going to the extent of mixing Gotye's vocals with tracks by The Police. 
He has released three studio albums independently and one album featuring remixes of tracks from his first two albums. De Backer is also one-third of Melbourne indie-pop trio The Basics, who have independently released three studio albums and numerous other titles since 2002.
He has won five ARIA Awards and received a nomination for an MTV EMA for Best Asia and Pacific Act.





GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

[Gotye:]
Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad it was over

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

[Kimbra:]
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

[Gotye:]
But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
And you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

[x2]
Somebody
(I used to know)
Somebody
(Now you're just somebody that I used to know)

(I used to know)
(That I used to know)
(I used to know)
Somebody

Quote of the Day (E. E. Cummings - I Carry Your Heart)

Thanks Ashley :-)

i carry your heart with me
i carry it in my heart

i am never without it
anywhere i go you go, my dear;
and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling

i fear no fate
for you are my fate, my sweet
i want no world
for beautiful you are my world, my true

and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
here is the root of the root
and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart
i carry it in my heart

-E. E. Cummings

Goo Goo Dolls - Name

So this song...where do I start. So many good times with this band. They are absolutely amazing and have such an influence on me. They have inspired me to write the down-to-earth heartfelt lyrics that i now thrive on. They have shown me that going with your gut and putting yourself out there will bring nothing but success in your life. The pure emotion behind their music is genuine and earnest.

This song in particular has gotten me through some hard times and also some good. The delivery is amazing and upbeat, yet so emotionally charged. The lyrics: "Don't it make you sad to know that life, is more than who we are" is a great line. It makes us realize that there has to be something more out there that we are working for. Something more meaningful, and that we should make the best of our life and treat others with love and respect.

I loved learning this song on guitar for the first time, feels like forever ago. The tuning came off a little weird, but so is the tuning for their top hit "IRIS", but made complete sense once I had finished tuning it (sometimes taking longer than expected haha). The chords and fingerpicking patterns work so well together and it isn't too hard to get the hang of, although i do remember it being fairly difficult to sing and play at the same time in the beginning.

Let me know what you think about this masterpiece and listen to it, learn it, and you will love it.

Check out the band here: http://www.googoodolls.com/



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

And even though the moment passed me by
I still cant turn away
Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
are tossed along the way
Letters that you never meant to send
Lost and thrown away

And now we are grown up orphans that never knew their names
We dont belong to no one thats a shame
You could hide beside me
Maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name..
And I won't tell 'em your name

Scars are souvenirs you'll never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?
Don't it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are?

We grew up way too fast
Now there's nothing to believe
And re-runs all become our history
A tired song keeps playin on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name...
And I won't tell 'em your name
I won't tell 'em your name...I won't tell 'em your name

I think about ya all the time
but I don't need to sing...
It's lonely where you are, come back down
And I won't tell your name

GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Your talk is cheap, your lies are weak
So hold your breath, don't even speak
You're a liar. You liar.
You make dirt mounds mountains
Raindrops fountains, small problems big
I can do without your problems, you're a problem

You're desperate at best, all you do is complain
I apologize for all the times I tried to help in any way
And oh, did I mention your cries for attention are driving me insane?

Your talk is cheap, your lies are weak
So hold your breath, don't even speak
You're a liar. You liar.
You make dirt mounds mountains
Raindrops fountains, small problems big
I can do without your problems, you're a problem

So lately I've mainly been looking back
To these past things the past brings and how the few should act (?)
No one notices your issues they don't even make a mark
Just these stupid things that you bring like shadows in the dark

So while you're running your mouth, saying things that aren't true
I'll sit back and relax and realize how worthless I am, just for you
All I'll say is this is the end of what we had
Sincerely, your best friend

Ed Sheeran - Give Me Love

Another amazing song by Ed Sheeran. Please let me know what you think about it. Your opinion is what i seek :-)



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Give me love like her,
'cause lately I've been waking up alone,
Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt,
Told you I'd let them go,
And that I'll fight my corner,
Maybe tonight I'll call ya,
After my blood turns into alcohol,
No, I just wanna hold ya.

Give a little time to me or burn this out,
We'll play hide and seek to turn this around,
All I want is the taste that your lips allow,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love.

Give me love like never before,
'cause lately I've been craving more,
And it's been a while but I still feel the same,
Maybe I should let you go,
You know I'll fight my corner,
And that tonight I'll call ya,
After my blood is drowning in alcohol,
No I just wanna hold ya.

Give a little time to me or burn this out,
We'll play hide and seek to turn this around,
All I want is the taste that your lips allow,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
Give a little time to me, or burn this out,
We'll play hide and seek to turn this around,
All I want is the taste that your lips allow,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My my, my, my, oh give me love.

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover,
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover,
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover,
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover.

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover,
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover,
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover,
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (love me, love me, love me).

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love),
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love),
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love, love me),
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love).

My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

[Break]

Of all the money that e'er I had
I've spent it in good company
And all the harm that e'er I've done
Alas it was to none but me
And all I've done for want of wit
To memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that ever I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that ever I had
They would wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all

A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again
But since it has so ordered been
By a time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
Good night and joy be with you all

Ed Sheeran - The A-Team

What a great song. So heartfelt and a lot of thought put behind the lyrics in this one. Great delivery with such simple chord progressions. The way he keeps the song fairly upbeat but with very sad lyrics is also a unique approach. Support this wonderful artist and as always let me know what you think
 <3<3<3

Here is a little bit of info about the artist:

Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran (born 17 February 1991) is an English singer-songwriter who is currently signed to Asylum / Atlantic Records. Sheeran broke through commercially in June 2011, when his debut single "The A Team" debuted at number 3 on the UK chart. Sheeran was born in Halifax, West Yorkshire to Irish and English parents, before moving to Framlingham, Suffolk. He learned guitar at a very young age, and began writing songs during his time at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham. His early childhood memories, that he referred to in a interview on the Zane Lowe show, included listening to Van Morrison on his countless trips to London with his parents and going to an intimate gig with Damien Rice in Ireland when he was 11. He also opened for Nizlopi in Norwich in April 2008 after being one of their guitar technicians.

GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

White lips, pale face
Breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light's gone, day's end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men

And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we're just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple grams
And she don't wanna go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly

Ripped gloves, raincoat
Tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes
Loose change, bank notes
Weary-eyed, dry throat
Call girl, no phone

And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we're just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple grams
And she don't wanna go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight
Straight down the line

And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
They scream
The worst things in life come free to us
And we're all under the upperhand
Go mad for a couple grams
And we don't wanna go outside tonight
And in a pipe we fly to the Motherland
Or sell love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
To fly, fly
For Angles to fly to fly to fly
For Angels to die

Weatherbox - The Clearing

I really like this song. The delivery is very direct.

I think the song about him getting lost and telling himself he is not going to give up. Then he finally gives in and is taken away by an angel. Then he either wakes up or is found dead in the snow. That's what i think.

Let me know what you think.



LYRICS:

I woke in the snow with my face on the pavement and icicles hanging off most of my clothes
10 picket fences for 10 perfect houses with green little gardens lined up in a row
I walked past the gardens and into the trees
And I found myself rather lost
And I picked a nice clearing
I dropped to my knees
I said I will get home at any cost
But they found me in the snow
Icicles on all my clothes
Surrounded in the splinters of 10 picket fences for 10 perfect houses
There shattered and scattered all across the road
I stand and I look at the wreckage around me
I whistle and turn
I start walking home

And it's back through the gardens and through the same trees to the clearing I passed out in before
And I threw up my hands to admit my defeat
When the chemicals erupted once more
And the clearing grew and began to bend
And all the sun light started pouring in
And you walked up, all bathed in white
And you stripped me naked
You held me tight

But they found me in the snow
Icicles on all my clothes
Surrounded in the splinters

Wallis Bird - The Circle

Thanks to SolarWalk for submitting. Please let me know what you think of this submission. 

Listen.Learn.Love



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:


Close your eyes I see a tear coming
Now look away so I can kiss your face
There's a light shining from your room
I wanna follow it so I can tell you I...

We bought melons and clothes
And paraded our chance to change
Just one moment in history
When everyone knew our name

And I was sitting between dance or fuck
I couldn't have felt a better rainfall
And I was caught in every bubble
Every beer I gulped
Every night I didn't read no books
And laid my weight upon the stage

Close your eyes I see a tear coming
Now look away so I can kiss your face
There's a light shining from your room
I wanna follow it so I can tell you I...

So we picked up the pen and decided to make noise
"What is the title of your brilliance?" I hope your writing never ends

And I was sitting between dance or fuck
I couldn't have felt a better rainfall
And I was caught in every bubble
Every beer I gulped
Every night I didn't read no books
And laid my weight upon the stage

Close your eyes I see a tear coming
Now look away so I can kiss your face
There's a light shining from your room
I wanna follow it so I can tell you I... (x2)

Love Your Smile........
I love your smile

The Summer Set - Passenger Seat

Thanks to Saratoppzz for submitting this song. Im a real sucker for acoustic so i had to post this. It is a very simple song to learn and fun to play. Learn it for your girlfriend. Let me know what you think about this. Thanks again Sara. <3



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

It's 3 AM, I'm outside your window
Jump the fence, Dad will never know
Fell in love with you in my passenger seat

And then you took control of the radio
And turned up all the songs I know
I'm risking everything
And that's alright with me

Roll down the window
Never get caught
Baby, no one will know

Just sweep me off my feet again
My new addiction
I'll be waiting
I've been addicted
To this story of a girl
Who can help this boy meet world
And sweep me off my feet again

Backseat down, fog on the windows
The sun came out about an hour ago
Then I kissed your head
Just like I always did

And let you take control of the radio
I've gotta get you home
I swear your parents won't know
Me and you've got something special
Perfectly dysfunctional

Just sweep me off my feet again
My new addiction
I'll be waiting
I've been addicted
To this story of a girl
Who can help this boy meet world
And sweep me off my feet again

And I'm wasted on you girl
And I've never been so sure
Don't wanna say goodnight
You and I could take another ride

We can go the long way home
So we can be alone
Oh baby, no one will now

Just sweep me off my feet again
My new addiction
I'll be waiting
I've been addicted
To this story of a girl
Who can help this boy meet world
And sweep me off my feet again

Just sweep me off my feet again
My new addiction
I'll be waiting
I've been addicted
To this story of a girl
Who can help this boy meet world
And sweep me off my feet again
Again

Jesse Ruben - Don't Marry Him

Another amazing song from Jesse Ruben. I couldnt find the lyrics online so i transposed them below. Enjoy the video and as always, support the artist for their wonderful contribution <3



LYRICS:

When we met you told me you were running from your past
its crazy how a life can change from good to bad so fast

And you sent invitations out and picked up your new dress
And then you find another woman lying in his bed

Dont Marry Him
Dont Marry Him

And I will always listen if you need someone to tell
And I like everything about you that you dont like yourself,
And you spent four days at my house and all we did was laugh
But I dont think we knew how good it was the thing we had

Cause I loved you I think, but that was not enough
But what you needed from me was a whole lot more than love

Call it bad timing or call it bad luck
But I was not surprised when we lost touch

Dont Marry Him
Dont Marry Him

Six months later i found out that you met someone new
I started to resent him but then I realized there's no use
You called me this afternoon with news I had to hear
You said I just got engaged Im getting married within a year

She said I loved you I think, that that was way back then
But what I needed from you we both know I could not give

But you saved me I think
Yes you saved me I think
And I'm happy that we met

Dont Marry Him
Dont Marry Him

Mae – Night/Day

I think most people would agree with me when i say the first 20 seconds of this song are unbelievable, mesmerizing, moving... This song has found its way into the back of my mind and has begun to invade..typically i would be displeased but i really dont mind in this case. Let me know what you think about this masterpiece.

Some of my favorite lyrics from this song are:

"I always knew that I was missing something I know this time that I will leave nothing up to chance"



LYRICS:

I've been dreaming such a long time
And I've been waiting for the sunshine
But all my friends they say I'm getting by with sleeping in
They say I'm sleeping in

You know whenever I try I want to get it right
But I distract my focus and blur my own sight
'Cause I've convinced myself that my best can only come in the moonlight
And I keep sleeping in
I keep on sleeping in
And missing something

(Close your eyes before daylight breaks)

There are things about me I just can't ignore
I know I want to change and I see that door
On the other side daylight decides there will be war with sleeping in
Oh, I know there'll be no more sleeping in

I wait, I wait, I wait only in jest
I wait, I wait, I wait with no need to rest I wait
"The day, the day, the day will come again," I say
A ray of light can only get in if I say
I've been putting off this purification a rebirth and a regeneration inside of me
And I've been saying "no" for far too long even though something brand new is coming out of me

I'm going to wake up, wake up every morning and then decide
I'm going to wake up, wake up every morning and make it mine
Rain or shine

I wake, I wake, I wake and greet the day
The light is on the change is made I can see my way
The day, the day, this day has come again
Each ray of light will make its way into the core of me
I always knew that I was missing something I know this time that I will leave nothing up to chance
And in the wake of this brand new day I see the light and I feel the sun and I'll do it all again tomorrow

I'm going to wake up, wake up every morning and then decide
I'm going to wake up, wake up every morning and make it mine
