Hands Down Tab

   
Hands Down- Dashboard Confessional
Tabbed by Alex McManus (aemon58@hotmail.com)

>=Down Stroke
<=Up Stroke
x=Palm Mute
\=Slide
H=Hammer On
P=Pull Off
^=Bend
~=Vibrato
#=Let Ring
Tuning: Eb Ab Gb Db Bb Eb

Note:This is how I play it, I have to clue as to how correct it is. Any comments,
corrections or critisisms, email me.(The strumming pattern for the chorus is
almost certainly wrong, but it sounds good.) There is a second guitar in the
backround during the chorus and brigde, and is anyone knows whats going on back
there, please email me with it.

Tabulature (Sounds best on an acoustic)

Lyrics

Verse

Breath in for luck.
Breath in so deep.
This air is blessed, you share with me.
This night is wild, so calm and dull.
These hearts they race from self controle.
Your legs are smooth as they graze mine.
We're doing fine, we're doing nothing at all.

Chorus

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
So wont you kill me? So I die happy.

My heart is yours to fill or burst.
To break or bury, or wear as jewelry,
whichever you prefer.

Verse 2

The words are hushed, let's not get busted.
Just lay entwined here, undicovered.
Safe for the hour from all the stupid questions.
'Hey did you get some?' Man that is so dumb.
Stay quiet, stay near, stay close, they can't hear.
So we can get some.

Chorus

Interlude

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember.
Always remember the sound of the stereo, the dim of the soft lights,
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers.
And the time on the clock when we realized it's so late.
And this walk that we shared together.
And the streets where wet, and the gate was locked.
So I jumped it and let you in.
And you stood at your door, with your hands on my waist.
And you kissed me like you meant it.
And I knew, that you meant it.
That you meant it.
That you meant it.
And I knew, that you meant it.
That you meant it.
