The Ataris Act V Scene Iv And So It Ends Like It Begins

18 Jul

Intro: F#m–D-E (x2)

Verse 1:
F#m
the smell of incense
D E
it fills the air inside this room
F#m D E
cast of light colorly strewn about the floor
F#m
a casket lined with pills
D E
and the bitter taste of absinth
F#m D E
to wash it down and so it ends like it began

Chorus 1:
A E/G# F#m
at a cross along this interstate
D E
a worn inscription all cracked and faded
A E/G# F#m
these actions will remain when bodies turn to dust
D
and from this monument
E F#m–D-E(x2)
i will drown inside the anguish of your heart

Verse 2:
F#m
a new dawn broke this morning
D E
tears were raining in this room
F#m
as pure as holy water
D E
reflecting images of you
F#m
this world is like a whore
D E F#m
so ravish and so beautiful
D E
so bitter cold and all alone

Chorus 2:
A E/G# F#m
and if i had my way we’d wake up on the day we met
D
i’d stare into your heart for hours
E
and try to make you hear the sweetest thoughts
A E/G# F#m
but not tonight we die inside each others arms
D
we’d revel in our last embrace
E
i’d steal the breath right from your heart
D–E–A–F#m
and kiss you as we die

Bridge:
D E A F#m
i rest my lifeless head upon your heart forever (x3)

Interlude: D–E–A–F#m (x2)

D E A/C# F#m
maybe i’ll bring you sunlight after all i’m sorry
D E A F#m
maybe i’ll bring you sunlight after all i’m sorry (x4)

Interlude: D–E–A–F#m–D-E-A/C#-F#m

D E A F#m
maybe i’ll greet sunlight after all I’m sorry
D E A
maybe i’ll greet sunlight after all
