My American Heart - All My Friends

I miss this band. Love the lyrics and love the soft yet punchy delivery. Let me know what you think.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

all my friends drowning at sea
yeah everyone except for you and me
and they'll be at the bottom
and they'll be at the bottom
an anchor tied to their feet
with all the love, their hearts will sink
and they'll be at the bottom
and they'll be at the bottom
i think i'll take the long way home
i suggest i sit up straight sit up straight
i sit up straight sit up straight
i think i'll take the long way home
i suggest i straighten up and get out
straighten up and get out, yeah
you know i wont mind
if the current falls over you
you know i wont mind
if the current falls over me too
because i think i'll take the long way home
i suggest i sit up straight sit up straight
i sit up straight sit up straight
i think i'll take the long way home
i suggest i straighten up and get out
i straighten up and get out, yeah
i think i'll take the long way home

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
