Stay Awake Julia Nunes

D A7 D - - It’s like I don’t have the patience, G 
Or the will power to separate myself D 
From this inundating era I’ve been dealt
 A 
And all across the nation D G
 Pixelated screens light up the night A7 D 
Of insomniacs and night owls alike

 A7 Em But we can turn off the lights A The sun’s coming up 
G A No dreams tonight to interrupt E G A 
Turn off the alarm before it sounds Em G And get out of bed without putting your head Em A D down, down

 A7 D - I’ve been closing my eyes real tight

A7 Em But we can turn off the lights... G D 
Stay awake with me G D In the darkness you will see G D Em A D 
What I’ve known all along, all along along

 A D Baby when you’re sleeping Em I wonder if you see me in your dreams A7 D
 Do you know exactly what all of it means 

D Maybe we are falling G And when I hit the ground I disappear A7 D
 But you open up your eyes and I’m still here

 A7 Em But we can turn off the lights... Em A Em A Em A D Down, down, down

G But the space between my lids betrays the light A7 D So I’m up again, I lost the will to fight 

D The scrolling information 
 G Pulls me in and holds me in a trance 
A7 D Link to link, no I don’t stand a chance

A D A D A Well, I bet you thought that D I forgot about our deal A But I am a man of my words, though they be strange and absurd D I’m just trying to keep it real A And I know I lost the bet, but I haven’t lost you yet D And if drinking lemonade for the rest of my days G E Would save you, you know I would do... it A D A D A Remember Regina and Sarah and cereal bowls? D And wearing our hats, even when it’s not cold? A I’ll never relate to your city peeps D ‘Cause I do most of my thuggin’ on suburban streets G E A I get terrified, but I’m fine... when I’m with you

16

A D A D G D You should know that I love it when you sing G But I’d love it even more D if you’d stop hitting things G D A Regardless, I’d be heartless... without you A D A D A Well, I haven’t yelled at someone in a really long time D And the last time that I did, I regretted it A I can’t wait ‘till senior year, D when I will live in constant fear A ‘Cause you’ll act like a zombie, and slobber all on me D You know that I hate it, but I wouldn’t trade it G E A For any asshole you don’t... like D Yeah, you’re stuck with me G E A D A D For the rest of our afterlives

A F#m D E I am frantically flailing, woozy inhaling A F#m D E these fumes that don’t put me to sleep.

Such Great Heights The Postal Service

F Am I am thinking it’s a sign Gm That the freckles in our eyes are mirror images Bb C F And when we kiss they’re perfectly aligned. Am And I have to speculate Gm Bb That God himself did make us into corresponding shapes Bb7M F Like puzzle pieces from the clay Am And true it may seem like a stretch Gm But it’s thoughts like this that catch Bb My troubled head when you’re away C F When I am missing you to death Am When you are out there on the road Gm For several weeks of shows Bb And when you scan the radio Bb7M I hope this song will guide you home F C They will see us waving from such great heights Bb Bb7M “Come down now,” they’ll say

22

F C But everything looks perfect from far away Bb Bb7M “Come down now,” but we’ll stay F Am I’ve tried my best to leave Gm This all on your machine but the persistent beat Bb C It sounded thin upon listening F Am And that frankly will not fly Gm You’ll hear the shrillest highs Bb And lowest lows with the windows down Bb7M When this is guiding you home F C They will see us waving from such great heights Solo 4x (F Am Gm) then ^ again A|---------------------------------------------------------| E|---1--1--1---|---1--1--1--1--1--0---|----0--0--0----| C|---------------------------------------------------------| G|---------------------------------------------------------| A|---------------------------------------------------------| E|--0--0--0--1--0--|-------------------------------------| C|-----------------2-|---2--2--2---|-2--2--2--0--0--0-| G|---------------------------------------------------------|


Cliquot Beirut

Bm Em x2 Bm A plague in the work house, A plague on the poor now Em I feed on my drum ‘til I’m dead Bm Yesterday, fever, tomorrow, St. Peter Em I’ll feed on my drum until then Bm Em What melody will lead my lover from his bed? Bm Em What melody will see him in my arms again? Bm Set fire the foundation and burn out the station Em You’ll never get nothing of mine Bm The pane of my window will flicker and glimmer Em Leave only the stitching behind

Bm Em What melody will lead my lover from his bed? Bm Em What melody will see him in my arms again? Bm Em x2 D A Em I’ll sing of the walls of the well D And the house at the top of the hill A Em I’ll sing of the bottles of wine D That we left on our old windowsill A Em I’ll sing of the usual spin D A Em Getting sadder and older, oh love D A Em x8

An Open Letter to Stephen Fry Molly Lewis

F Your heart is promised to a man Fm And so I have no hope to win it C But consider my proposal, sir E7 If you can find a minute F I think that the future of our species Fm will be better with you in it C D I know you have your problems F And maybe I have mine F But you should leave someone to carry on Fm When you have turned to dust C Plant your genome in an infant, Sir E7 I think it’s only just F And you would need someone to bear this child, Fm A woman you can trust C D F I’ll put my body on the line

F I am ideal for this position Fm Which I hope you will no doubt C I’ve got those child bearing hips E7 You always hear so much about F I have permission from my boyfriend Fm And he’d like to help you out C F I know it isn’t much but it’s what I have to give F And I don’t drink and I don’t smoke Fm And I eat all my leafy greens C I’ll try to go to bed much earlier, E7 I’ll get all my vaccines F And I’ll put headphones on my belly, Fm And I’ll cut back on caffeine C D F I’ll hang an iPad in the crib

C E7 Oh, Stephen Fry, there’s no reason why C E7 F Oh, Stephen Fry I see no reason why You wouldn’t want someday maybe F Fm You wouldn’t want someday maybe To let me have your baby Fm C E7 And I’m in my prime so you’ve got loads of time To let me have your baby F F’ Ab Ab(b5) C E7 You would be amazed what science does these days So when you’re ready — send along your seed. F F’ Ab Ab(b5) So think it over — and send along your seed. 34


C C7 You deserve to reproduce F Dm And I was built to procreate C C7 I hope my womb can be of use F Dm So think it over, I can wait F And one day if you’re sure of it, Fm Fm6 Then I can be your surrogate, please

C E7 Oh, Stephen Fry I hope you’ll tell me why F You wouldn’t want someday maybe Fm To let me have your baby C E7 I adore you dear, I come before you here Am F To be the only woman you will ever need, D7 Fm And my fertility is nearly guaranteed F ‘Cause I have all the tools Ab Ab(b5) That you require to breeeeeeed So send along your seed

If we look at the A -------------------------------------0----2----3---------- note chart at the bottom of the page, we can see E -----------------0----1------3---------------------------- that the root note, which is on the first fret of C -----0----2----------------------------------------------- the 3rd string, is a C#. G ----------------------------------------------------------Thus, to play a D major scale, all we’d have to do the scale pictured above is the C major scale. We is move the progression one fret to the right, or know this because the ‘root note’, the first note increase every number in the tab by one. played is a C. And so, if we see the following: Songs in the key E should be accompanied by notes in the scale of E, which, using the chart at the bottom of the page, we know has a root note on the 4th fret of the C string. we should know it is the E major scale, as its root note, on the 4th fret of the 3rd string is an
