You Will

Chords and lyrics for You Will by Bright Eyes

E 
Well you say, that I treat you like a  
A 
book on a shelf.
 
I don’t  
E 
take you out that often cause i
F#sus4 
know i’ve c
A 
ompleted 
 
you
 
and that why you are  
E 
here
Esus4 
.
E 
 
That is t
A 
he reason you stay  
E 
here
Esus4 
.
E 
F#m 
How 
 
awful
A 
that 
 
must
E 
fe
Esus4 
el
E 
.
 
E 
You said you’d be my dream. I could  
A 
have you every night,
 
and if, by
E 
morning I, I’d forgotten you, well,
F#sus4 
no big deal  
A 
it’d be alright
 
cos you are the reoccurring
E 
kind
Esus4 
.
E 
 
You are the  
A 
re-occurr-ing
E 
kind
Esus4 
.
E 
F#m 
You never really
A 
leave 
 
my
E 
mi
Esus4 
nd
E 
 
E 
Are you the love of my lifetime? Because there have been  
A 
times I have had my doubts
 
We were just  
E 
kids when i first kissed you in the  
F#sus4 
attic 
 
o
A 
f my parents house
 
and I wish we where there
E 
no
Esus4 
w
E 
 
It took so
A 
long to figure
E 
ou
Esus4 
t
E 
F# 
What this book
A 
has been  
E 
abo
Esus4 
ut
E 
 
E 
Now I write when I’m away letters
A 
that you’ll never read
 
You said go exp
E 
lore those other women, the ge
F#sus4 
-ogra-ph
A 
y of their bod-ies
 
but there is just one map you’ll
E 
nee
Esus4 
d
E 
 
You are a boom
A 
-erang. 
 
You’ll
E 
see
Esus4 
.
E 
F#m 
You 
 
will
A 
return 
 
t
E 
 
 
Esus4 
me
E 
 
E 
 
F#m 
 
E 
F#m 
If you don’t, the this book is all lies. If you don’t, then my plans would all
E 
be ruined. If you don’t, I’ll start  
A 
drinking like the way i drank b
F#sus4 
efore
 
And I  
A 
just wouldn’t have a future an
E 
ymore.

When The Curious Girl Realizes She Is Under Glass

Chords and lyrics for When The Curious Girl Realizes She Is Under Glass by Bright Eyes

 
Tomor
C 
row when I wake up I’m  
G 
finding my brother
 
And  
Dm 
making him take me back
G 
down to the water
 
That  
C 
lake where we sailed and we  
G 
laughed with our father
 
I  
Am 
will not desert him, I
Am 
will not desert him
G 
 
No matter how I may  
G 
wish for a  
C 
coffin so  
Am 
clean
 
Or these trees to un
G 
dress all their  
C 
leaves onto  
Am 
me
 
I put my face in the  
G 
dirt and then  
C 
finally I  
Am 
see
 
The  
Dm 
sky that has been
G 
avoidin
C 
 
me
 
I  
C 
started this letter, I’m gonna  
G 
send it to Ruba
 
It will be  
Dm 
blessed by her eyes on the
G 
gulf coast of Florida
 
With her  
C 
feet in the sand and one  
G 
hand on her swimsuit
 
She will  
Am 
recite the prayer of my
G 
pen
 
Saying,  
C 
time take us forward,  
G 
relief from this longing
 
They can  
Dm 
land that plane on my
G 
heart. I don’t care
 
Just  
C 
give me November, the  
G 
warmth of a whisper
 
In the  
Am 
freezing darkness of my
G 
room
 
But no matter what I would  
G 
do in an at
C 
tempt to re
Am 
place
 
All these pills that I  
G 
take trying to  
C 
balance my  
Am 
brain
 
Seen the curious  
G 
girl with that  
C 
look on her  
Am 
face
 
So  
Dm 
surprised she stares out from
G 
her 
 
display
C 
case

Vanishing Act

Chords and lyrics for Vanishing Act by Bright Eyes

Dm 
Were you surprised that we never spoke?
Bm 
Well, I guess that you never knew me
 
Or at  
G 
least not well enough
 
So I  
Dm 
fill my gut with that dark red wine
 
Because I’ve been
Bm 
practicing 
 
disappearing
 
And i t
G 
hink that I’ve got it down
Dm 
But now there is no sun, just a cellar
 
But you’
Bm 
ll get that feeling back
 
Yeah, you just
G 
need some time to think
Dm 
And to add up the hell, get it straight in your mind
 
But I’m  
Bm 
sure you’ll get to feeling better
 
Yeah, I ju
G 
st need some time to drink
Dm 
And so I’ll fill my gut with that blood red wine
