The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows Acoustic Tab

   
Author/Artist: Brand New
Title: The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows (acoustic)
Album: Deja Entendu
Transcribed by: KeNz (thepeoplesuck@hotmail.com)

Brand New performed their song acoustically on K-Rock (NY radio station), and it was amazing.  It was a lot easier to tab from the acoustic and it's basically the same as the original.  It's tuned Drop D (DADGBe)

   pm.....   .......   .......   ....... (slightly)

[F#5] We saw the western
[D#5] coast, I saw the hospi-
[B5]  -tal, Nurse the shoreline
[C#5] like a wound

[F#5] We paint a lover's
[D#5] tryst, We're neither clear nor de-
[B5]  -script, We take it safe and slow
[C#5] The quiet things that no one ever knows

Chorus (Same as rhythm from intro [not pm and slower strumming]) x2

[F#5] Keep the blood in your head, and keep your feet on the
[D#5] ground, Today's the day it gets tired, it's the day we drop
[B5]  down, Give up my body in bed, all for an empty ho-
[C#5] -tel, Wasting words on lower cases and capitals

Verse #2

[F#5] I contemplate the day we
[D#5] wed, your friends are boring me to
[B5]  death, your veil is ruined
[C#5] in the rain

[F#5] By now, you could do with-
[D#5] -out, There's nothing new to talk a-
[B5]  -bout, And though the kids are blessed
[C#5] The parents let them shoulder all the blame

Chorus x2

Interlude (same as intro but with chords)
e|-------------|---2p1-------|---2p1---1---|-----------------|
B|---7/6---6---|-------2h4-2-|-------2---2-|---7/6---6---7/9-|

D|-4-----------|-1-----------|-4-----------|-6---------------|
A|-4-----------|-1-----------|-2-----------|-4---------------|
D|-4-----------|-1-----------|-------------|-----------------|

e|---------|---------|---------|---------|
B|---------|---------|---------|---------|
G|---------|---------|-4-------|-6-------| strum chords, repeat second line
D|-4-------|-1-------|-4-------|-6-------| twice with lead playing over
A|-4-------|-1-------|-2-------|-4-------|
D|-4-------|-1-------|---------|---------|
   I         lie       for       only you
   And I     lie       well      halleluh

Chorus x2 to end it


That's it.  It's a pretty easy song, but it's really good if done right.  Until next time, kiddies.
