Make War

Chords and lyrics for Make War by Bright Eyes

 
Our love is  
E 
dead but without limit,
 
like the  
A 
surface of the moon
 
or the  
E 
land between here and the mou
B7 
ntains.
 
Well, it i
E 
s not these hiding places
 
that have k
A 
ept us innocent
 
but the way you ta
E 
ught me to just let
B7 
it all go by
E 
.
 
And so we’ve le
E 
arned to be as faithless,
 
stand b
A 
ehind bulletproof glass,
 
exchanging
E 
our affections through a dr
B7 
awer.
 
And it was always ho
E 
rribly 
 
convenient
 
and h
A 
appening too fast.
 
You should count your ch
E 
ange before you’re eve
B7 
n out the door.
E 
 
A 
Return, return to the  
E 
person that you were.
 
And  
C#m 
I will do t
B 
he 
 
same
 
cause it is too
A 
hard to belong to  
E 
someone who is gone.
F#m 
My compass spins. Th
A 
e wilderness remains.
E 
 
E 
Once too often, I have retreated
 
into the  
A 
depths of my despair.
 
I built a
E 
barricade to block you on the  
B7 
road.
 
I was standing there with al
E 
l of my possessions
A 
piled higher than a house,
 
I felt  
E 
closer to you than you  
B7 
ever would have known.
E 
E 
So let each tiny acts of charity
 
be common gr
A 
ound on which to build
 
the  
E 
monument that will commemorate our times
B7 
.
 
And though, you sw
E 
ear you’ve found another
 
who will surely  
A 
speed you on your way,
 
don’t let the for
E 
est grow over that p
B7 
ath you came there by.  
E 
 
A 
So hurry up and run to the o
E 
ne that you love.
C#m 
And blind him with yo
B 
ur 
 
kindness.
 
And he’ll make w
A 
ar, old war, on who you were be
E 
fore.
 
And claim a
F#m 
ll that ha
A 
s spoiled in your he
E 
art.
 
E 
Now, I tell myself I’ve mended
 
under these p
A 
atches of blue sky.
 
There are still a
E 
few holes that let in a little ra
B7 
in.
 
And it’s been  
E 
crying on my shingles.
 
My floorboards m
A 
oan under my feet.
 
The refrigerator is
E 
whining, so I’ve got
B7 
reason to complai
E 
n.
E 
But I am not gonna bless you with such compliments,
 
some d
A 
egrading psalm of praise,
 
like the
E 
kind that converted you to me so long ag
B7 
o.
 
Because the tr
E 
uth is that gossip’s as good as go
A 
spel in this town.
 
You can save your fa
E 
ce but you won’t ever
B7 
save your soul.
E 
 
A 
So hurry up and ru
E 
n to the one that you love.
 
And  
C#m 
tie him up in yo
B 
ur 
 
likeness,
 
And he’ll  
A 
become, become the pr
E 
isoner I was.
 
And know al
F#m 
l that has
A 
spoiled in yo
E 
ur 
 
heart.
 
And know al
F#m 
l that has
A 
spoiled in yo
E 
ur 
 
heart.
 
So hurry u
A 
p and run to the o
E 
ne that you love.
 
And b
C#m 
lind him with yo
B 
ur 
 
kindness.
 
And he’ll  
A 
make war, old war, on w
E 
ho you were before.
 
And claim a
F#m 
ll that ha
A 
s spoiled in y
E 
our 
 
heart.
 
Yeah, he’ll
F#m 
claim 
 
all
A 
that has spoi
E 
led in your heart.
