(from the "elastica" album, also on "Trainspotting" soundtrack)

tabbed here by Matthew Ginn (mginn@manitouwadge.lakeheadu.ca)
1997 09 24

This song uses mostly power chords. I haven't tried to note
the strumming rhythms, because they're pretty variable, and mostly
unimportant--just listen to the record--it's straight forward enough.
(This song is played with two guitars, but I've tabbed the main parts
for one. Some day, I'll tab out the other parts.)

As for the lyrics: these are the best I could make them out. I didn't
try to correlate the background vocals with the main lyrics in verse
2, just try to fit them in as you see fit. As usual, corrections are
welcome.

VERSE 1:

C#
Keeping a brave face

                      A
in circumstances is impossible,


cannot describe

         B
so many ... decisions,

       G#                     C#
it's impossible to know which is


the proper order,

                 A
the best position to be ... in,

     B
take advantage, or so it seems

          B                   |
strangers in my bed,          |  Too easy, for nobody to know.
                              |  [too busy to notice me? at all?] |
turn my head,                 |  You're soaking wet,

G#                            |
again.                        |  you talk too much,
                              |  it's not necessary.)

                              |
A                             |
looks content,                |  "This kid is yours,
                              |
                              |
feels the mood, and then      |  your eyes and mouth."
                              |
B                             |
fumbling 'round,              |  Somewhere
