A                   
I'm staring out into that vaccum again
 
A/C#
From the back porch of my mind

Bm
The only thing thats alive

             E(7)
I'm all there is

A
And I start attacking my vodka, stab the ice with my straw

                    A/C#
My eyes have turned red as stoplights, you seem ready to walk

              Bm
You know I'll call you eventually, when I wanna talk 

                 E(7)
'Til then you're invisible. 

F#m                              F#m/F            Bm           E
'Cause theres a switch that gets hit and it all stops making sense 

F#m                  F#m/F              Bm           E
And in the middle of drinks, maybe the fifth or the sixth

F#m            F#m/F        Bm
I'm completely alone at a table of friends

E                               E(7)
I feel nothing for them. I feel nothing, nothing

Interlude:

A, E, Bm, E 
A, E, Bm, E
F#m, F#m/F, Bm, E

A
Well, I need a break from the city again 

              A/C#
I think I'll ship myself back west 

        Bm                                 E(7)
I got a friend there, she says, "hey, any time." 



A
Unless that offers expired, I have been less than frequent 

            A/C#
she's under no obligation to indulge every whim 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bright_eyes/hit_the_switch_crd.html ]
            Bm
And I'm so ungrateful, I take, she gives and forgives

               E(7)
And I keep forgetting it



F#m                  F#m/F        Bm          E(7)
And each morning she wakes with a dream to describe

F#m                  F#m/F            Bm        E(7)
Something lovely that bloomed in her beautiful mind

       F#m             F#m/F        Bm
I said "I'll trade you one for two nightmares of mine

E                               E(7)
I have some where I die, I have some where we all die." 



Interlude:
A, E, Bm, E
A, E, Bm, E
F#m, F#m/F, Bm, E


Loud Part: Not sure on this part.

Goes from F#m to G#m at the end of the loud part.



A
I'm thinking of quitting drinking again

A/C#
I know i said that a couple times

                Bm                               E(7)
And I'm always changing my mind, well, i guess i am

                A
But theres this burn in my stomach and theres this pain in my side 

           A/C#
And when I kneel at the toilet

                                   Bm
And the mornings clean light pours in through the window 
Sometimes I pray I don't die 

              E(7)
I'm a goddamn hypocrite 


F#m                 F#m/F             Bm            E(7)
But the night rolls around and it all starts making sense 

            F#m          F#m/F          Bm          E(7)
There is no right way or wrong way, you just have to live

         F#m       F#m/F      Bm
And so I do what I do and at least I exist

           E
What could mean more than this? 

          E(7)
What would mean more? 
Mean more? 



Interlude:
A, E, Bm, E
A, E, Bm, E

F#m, F#m/F, Bm

Ending finger picking, play around on this chord:

x20200  It's essentially A Bm.

That's sort of it.
