Verse:
Gbm
They say we are what we are, but we don’t have to be
D
I’m bad behavior but I do it in the best way
Gbm
I’ll be the watcher of the eternal flame
D                                             -Gbm-
I’ll be the guard dog of all your fever dreams
Gbm      D                                                      -Gbm-
I am the sand in the bottom half of the hourglass. -glass, glass- 
Gbm        
I’ll try to picture me without you but I can’t

Chorus:
                    Gbm        D
'Cause we could be immortals, immortals
      A                 E
Just not for long, for long
                     Gbm                             D
Live with me forever now, pull the blackout curtains down
      A                 E
Just not for long, for long
             Gbm D            A   E       Gbm D            A   E    -Gbm-
We could be immor-immortals, immor-tals, immor-immortals, immor-tals 

Verse:
Gbm
Sometimes the only payoff for having any faith
D
Is when it’s tested again and again everyday
Gbm                                 -halt-
I’m still comparing your past to my future
D                                             -Gbm-
It might be you're wound, but they’re my sutures
Gbm      D                                                      -Gbm-
I am the sand in the bottom half of the hourglass. -glass, glass-
Gbm         HALT
I’ll try to picture me without you but I can’t

Chorus:
                    Gbm        D
'Cause we could be immortals, immortals
      A                 E
Just not for long, for long
                     Gbm                             D
Live with me forever now, pull the blackout curtains down
      A                 E
Just not for long, for long
             Gbm D            A   E       Gbm D            A   E    -Gbm-

And live with me forever now, pull the blackout curtains down

Chorus -x2-:
                    Gbm        D

    What strumming pattern do you use?

  2. thatweirdocris

    I always have problems with E and I’ve been trying to get better at playing it but is there any replacement for it? Like could I just replace it with Em or would that not sound right?

  3. When transposed, the Gbm doesn’t change. This may be because it has the hyphens on both sides like -Gbm- instead.

  4. +3 is VERY easy!

    I’m not a professional writer, but I could be a professional reader. Thank you for your interesting and forward-thinking views on this unique subject matter.

    Thank you sooo much! I love this song!!

  9. IzzyHowardUke

    Fab – sounds great even though it’s sung below my vocal range. Works surprisingly well on the ukulele!

  10. Ah wait the spacing between my Dbm and Bm isn’t seen. Just imagine smack in the middle of the whole word that’s where Bm is above at, okay? :)

  11. You know that part in the lines when they sing “Ooooooh” between “I’ll be the guard dog of all your fever dreams” and “I am the sand..”? Use Dbm and halfway Bm to fill in instead of straight Gbm. Like:

    Dbm Bm
    Oooooooooooooooh

    Hope that helps :)

  12. love it in +3 half steps <3
