Subject: CRD: BETTIE SERVEER - Keepsake

About a year ago I went to a Bettie Serveert concert in Amsterdam, Holland.
When the concert was over, I found this paper on stage. It said 'Paint this
day' and it had some chords on it.
Bettie Serveert just released their new album, 'Lamprey', and it's fucking
brilliant. But there's no song called Paint this day on it.
After listening the album a few times, I found out the song on the paper I
foudn was Keepsake, the first song on the album. Since the paper originally
belonged to Peter Visser, the guitarist of Bettie Serveert, I think my
source is quite accurate.
Here's what the paper sais:

Intro: Am G F

C G Am D F
Am G F - C G Am D F

Chorus: Am C F C
        Am G F      - Paint this day

Intro: Am G F

C G Am D F

Chorus: Am C F C
        Am G F

G F C
G F C D F  (2x)

End

I found a message of Joop schmit (schmit@bart.nl) here a week ago and it
contained the chords of Keepsake, the first song on the album Lamprey by Bettie
Serveert. As this album is, according to Joop Schmit and me too, fucking
brilliant I decided to find out the lyrics and put these two things together.
It is very hard though to find out lyrics to Bettie Serveert songs, but I think
I fairly succeeded. A few things are missing, but hey: nobody's perfect.
I hope I got everything right.
Many thanks tot Joop Schmit and of course Peter Visser, the guitarist of Bettie
Serveert. I wish everybody lots of fun playing it.

Am
Wrapped up in blue
                  F
Painted by me and you
                  Am
Some thought it's changed by the truth
   G                F
We somehow keep smiling through
                  C
It's all we got instead
             G        Am
It sometimes feels so near
           D                     F
And then I reach out and it just disappears


Intro: Am G F (2x)


Am         G            F
Was it something that I said
F              Am
I feel so many moods
Am            G         F
Written all across your head
                       C
They lie there two and two
             G        Am
It sometimes feels so near
       D                     F
then I reach out and it just disappears

Intro

Am      G                F
I could smell the fallen rain
                     Am
I know that's in the park
Am          G                  F
The kind of things you can't explain
                    C
I feel them in your heart
             G        Am
It sometimes seems so near
           D                     F
and then I reach out and it just disappears

Chorus:
Am         C
Paint this day
F                      C
Let's keep this one forever
Am           G         F
Wrap it up inside your heart

Am         C
Paint this day
F                    C
For worse if not for better
Am          G          F
Save it up 'till............ (?)

       G            F                C
'cause that's why I sometimes stay awake
G         F            C             D
Pondering endlessly in reach of understance
         F
Just for keepsake

Instr.: (?)

Intro

C            G        Am
It sometimes seems so clear
           D                     F
and then I reach out and it just disappears

Chorus
