Bright Eyes_We are No where, and we are Now

(feat. Emmylou Harris)

If you hate the taste of wine
Why do you drink it until youíre blind?
And if you swear that thereís no truth and who cares
How come you say it like youíre right?
Why are you scared to dream of god
When itís salvation that you want?
You see stars that clear have been dead for years
But the idea just lives on

We are wheels that roll around
As we move over the ground
And all day it seems weíve been in between the past and future town

We are nowhere, and itís now
We are nowhere, and itís now
You took a ten-minute dream in the passengers seat
While the world it was flying by
I havenít been gone very long
But it feels like a lifetime

Iíve been sleeping so strange at night
Side effects they donít advertise
Iíve been sleeping so strange
With a head full of pesticide

I got no plans and too much time
I feel to restless to unwind
Iím always lost in thought
As I walk a block to my favourite neon sign
Where the waitress looks concerned
But she never says a word
Just turns the jukebox on
And we hum along
And I smile back at her

And my friend comes after work
When the features start to blur
She says these bars are filled with things that kill
And you probably should have learned


She took a small silver wreathe and pinned it onto me
She said this one will bring you love
I donít know if itís true but I keep it for good luck

Bright Eyes_Old Soul Song (For the New World Order)

(feat. Emmylou Harris)

Gray light, new day leaks through the window
And an old song comes on the alarm clock radio
We walk the forty blocks to the middle
Of the place we heard that everything would be
And there were barricades to keep us off the street
But the crowd kept pushing forward
Until they swallowed the police
Ya they went wild

We left before the dust had time to settle
Now all the broken glass swept off the avenue
And on the way home held your camera like a bible
Just wishing so bad that it held some kind of truth
And I stood nervous next to you in the dark room
You dropped the paper in the water
And it all begins to bloom
Ya they go wild

And just when I get so lonesome I cant speak
I see some flowers on the hillside
Like the wars on TV
Ya they go wild

Am7/B - X22010
Am - X02210
C G
You were born inside of a raindrop
Fm C
I watched you falling to your death
C G
And the sun, well it could not save you
Fm C
It'd fallen down too, the streets are wet

C G
Body of water, toxic and timeless
Fm C
The Atlantic ocean, New York skyline
C G
I always get lost when I leave the village
Fm C
So I couldn't come meet you in Brooklyn last night

C G
But I sing glory for my lowest
Fm C
And I will say peace to the people at me
C G
While the world waits for an explosion
Fm C
That instant of life that wipes that slate clean
C Am7/B
Am G
So don't be fooled
Am G
So don't be lied to
Am C G
Love was always cruel

Am G
Don't act strange
Am G
Don't be a stranger
Am C G
It happened to me, now it's happening to you

Fm
But if you take that train underwater then we could talk it through
C G Fm C 2 times
C G
Well if I could tame all of my desires
Fm C
Wait out the weather that howls in my brain
C G
Because it seems that it's always changing
Fm C
The wind's indecision, the sorrowful rain

C G
I was a postcard, I was a record
Fm C
I was a camera until I went blind
C G
Now I'm riding all over this island
Fm C
Looking for something to open my eyes

C G
Well we still sing glory from a highrise
Fm C
And I will say thanks if you're pouring my drinks
C G
While the world waits for an explosion
Fm C
That moment in time when we are set free
C Am7/B
Am G
So don't stay mad
Just let some time pass
Am C G
And in the morning you'll wake feeling new
Am G
And if I don't come back
Am G
I mean, if I get sidetracked
Am C G
It's only 'cause I wanted to
Fm
Keeping up with the moon on an all night avenue
C G Fm C 2 times

Bright Eyes_Lua

I know that it is freezing but I think we have to walk
I keep waving at the taxis; they keep turning their lights off
But Julie knows a party at some actorís west side loft
Supplies are endless in the evening; by the morning theyíll be gone.

When everything gets lonely I can be my own best friend
Iíll grab a coffee and the paper; have my own conversations
With the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection
The mask I polish in the evening, by the morning looks like shit.

I know you have a heavy heart; I can feel it when we kiss
So many men much stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me Iím not gamble you can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening, by the morning wonít exist.

Youíre looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black
You just keep going to the bathroom always say youíll be right back
Well it takes one to know one, kid, I think youíve got it bad
But whatís so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag.

Iíve got a flask inside my pocket we can share it on the train
If you promise to stay conscious I will try and do the same
We might die from medication, but we sure killed all the pain
But what was normally in the evening, by the morning seems insane.

And Iím not sure what the trouble was that started all of this
The reasons have run away but the feeling never did
Itís not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live
Cause what is simple in the moonlight, by the morning never is
Whatís so simple in the moonlight, by the morning is so complicated.
Whatís so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight

Bright Eyes_Landlock Blues

C G C
If you walk away, I'll walk away
C G C
First tell me which road you will take
Am G C Am
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
C G C
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way
C G C
And the future hangs over our heads
C G C
And it moves with each current event
Am G C Am
Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
C G C
Just stay in when it's looking this way
C G C
And the moon's laying low in the sky
C G C
Forcing everything metal to shine
Am G C Am
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
C G C
They argue walk this way, now walk this way
C G C
And Laura's asleep in my bed
C G C
As I'm leaving she wakes up and says
Am G C Am
"I dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
C G C
Baby don't go away, come here"
C G C
And there's kids playing guns in the street
C G C
And ones pointing his tree branch at me
Am G C Am
So I put my hands up I say "enough is enough,
C G C
If you walk away, I'll walk away"

And he shot me dead

Am G C
I found a liquid cure
Am G C
From my landlocked blues
F G C Am
It'll pass away like a slow parade
C G C
It's leaving but I don't know how soon

C G C C G C Am G C Am C G C

C G C
And the world's got me dizzy again
C G C
You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin
Am G C Am
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
C G C
So I'm always pacing around or walking away
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
And I'm balancing history books up on my head
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
If you love something, give it away
A good woman will pick you apart
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
But don't walk away, don't walk away
We made love on the living room floor
With the noise in background of a televised war
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
"If we walk away, they'll walk away"
But greed is a bottomless pit
And our freedom's a joke
We're just taking a piss
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
If you're still free start running away
Cause we're coming for you!

C G C C G C Am G C Am C G C

I've grown tired of holding this post
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
So I'm making a deal with the devils of faith
Saying "let me walk away, please"
You'll be free child once you have died
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
Till then walk away, walk away

Am G C
So I'm up at dawn
Am G C
Putting on my shoes
F G C Am
I just want to make a clean escape
C G C
I'm leaving but I don't know where to
C G C
I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to

Bright Eyes_ First day of my life

Intro:
C E Am F G C x2

C E Am
This is the first day of my life
F G C
Swear I was born right in the doorway
C E Am
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
D7(000212) G
They're spreading blankets on the beach
C E Am
Yours is the first face that I saw
F G C
Think I was blind before I met you
C E Am
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
D7 G
But I know where I want to go

C G Am
So I thought I'd let you know
F G
That these things take forever
C C/B Am
I especially am slow
D2(003230) C
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home

C G Am D2(003230) F2(006560) F?(006568)

C E Am
I remember the time you drove all night
F G C
Just to meet me in the morning
C E Am
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
D7 G
You felt as if you'd just woke up
C E Am
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
F G C
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
C E Am
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
D7 G
And I'd probably be happy."

C G Am
So if you want to be with me
F G
With these things there's no telling
C C/B Am
We'll just have to wait and see
D2 C
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery

C E Am
D2 C
Besides, maybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like me
