The Airborne Toxic Event
Capo 1st fret
Chords: D A G Bm

Intro: D A G Bm

Verse
    D
The other day when we were walking by
    A
The graveyard near the house you asked me
   G
If I thought
   Bm
We would ever die
    D
And if life and love both fade so
   A
Predictably we've made ourselves
  G
A kind of
   Bm
Predictable lie.

Pre Chorus
     D
So I pictured us like corpses
      A
Lying side by side in pieces
        G                                  Bm
In some dark and lonely plot, under a bough
   D
We looked so silly there, all decomposed
     A
Half turned to dust, in tattered clothes
          G                              Bm
Though we probably look just as silly now.

Chorus
        G                              D         A
Bye bye bye, bye, bye bye, to all this dog-eared innocence
        G                                   D               A
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next
            Bm
Or how to be
             D  A Bm  A    G
But you have no idea 'bout me
       D
Do you?

Verse 2
       D
And it left me to wonder if
       A
People ever know each other,
        G
Or just stumble around like strangers
       Bm
In the dark
        D
Because sometimes you seem so strange to me
  A
I must seem strange to you
               G
We're like two actors
            Bm
Playing our parts.

Pre Chorus 2
            D
Did you memorise your lines? 'Cause I did
           A
Here's the part where I get so mad
  G                                Bm
I tell you that I can't forget the past
           D
You get so quiet now and you seem somehow
       A
Like a lost and lonely child 
             G                              Bm
And you just hope that the moment won't last.

Chorus 2
        G                              D         A
Bye bye bye, bye, bye bye, to all this dog-eared innocence
           G                                D               A
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next
            Bm
Or how to be
             D  A Bm  A    G
But you have no idea 'bout me
         D  A Bm  A    G
You have no idea 'bout me
       D
Do you?

Bridge
              G             Bm
Still there's always a way around
                  G                     D
There's something tying our feet to the ground
         A                      Bm
A moment passed, we hear how it sounds
            D       A      Bm   A  G
And then it seems a little less profound
           D   A         Bm   A   D
Like we're all going the same way down
           D   A         Bm   A   D
Like we're all going the same way down
         D      A  Bm       A   D
I'm just trying to write it all down...
               D                   A
'Cause I write songs and you write letters
       G                A
We are tied like two in tethers and
   D                  A
We talk and read, and laugh and sleep
   G              A
At night in bed together and
    D                 A                    G                          A
You wake in tears sometimes, I can see the thoughts flash across your eyes
          D                    A                        G              A
They say, "Darling will you be kind? Will you be a good man and stay behind,
           Bm
When I get old?"
             G                A
And then the letters all pass through my head
         D          A     Bm
With the words that I was told,
          G               A
About the fading flesh of life, and love,
    D        A      Bm
The failures of the bold.
        G                   A
I could list each crippling fear like I'm
D       A      Bm
Reading from a will.
           D  A     Bm      A        G
And I'll defy every one and love you still
       D     A        Bm    A     G
I will carry you with me up every hill
           G            A
And if you die before I die, 
                D        A      Bm
I'll carve your name out of the sky.
     G                     A
I'll fall asleep with your memory,
    D        A         Bm
And dream of where you lie.
      G              A             D               A
Maybe better to move on and to let life just carry on,
             Bm
And I may be wrong.
           D
Still I'll try.
             G         A                 D       A        Bm
Because it's better to love, whether you win, or lose, or die.
     G         A                 D       A        Bm
It's better to love, whether you win, or lose, or die.
     G         A                D         A      Bm
It's better to love, and I will love you 'till I die.

A    D
