Softer Chords

   
Softer by Jimmy Eat World

This is just the chords for guitar One.  (Basically I suck, so improvise, Chief.)

I couldn't find any lyrics I totally agree with (see *), but these were taken from http://www.jimmyeatworldonline.com

Intro:
Bb, D  -two times

Verse One:
Bb                        D
She's perfect in her own way
Bb                               D
Smoke rings rising to the winter grey.
Bb                        D
She's perfect in her own way
Bb                             D
Shining, stepping off a silver train.

Chorus One:
        G         Eb               D
Now I'm getting a sick taste in my mouth
         G               Eb         Bb
From the medicine that I can't keep down...

(keep playing Bb, then D, then Bb again, then D again, then verse 2)

Verse Two:
Bb                        D
She's amazing in her own way
Bb                        D
Always moving to a better place
Bb                        D
She's amazing in her own way
Bb                                    D
Laughing, you won't get to her better traits*

Chorus Two:
        G            Eb               D
Now I'm getting that sick taste in my mouth
         G               Eb         Bb
From the medicine that I can't keep down...
         G                     Eb        D
You know time heals nothing by itself
      G            Eb      Bb
I see that ever so clearly now

Bridge One: (one time)
Bb, D
Bb                                         D
          She looks a little bit different now
                                    Bb              D
Maybe a little bit softer round the eyes
Bb                                    D
          Just a little bit different now
                                    Bb
Maybe a little bit softer round the eyes

Bridge Two: (four times)
(same Bb)
The lights had just gone out at Rockerfeller Center.
        D
Take it slow and make it softer.
(same D)
Easy likes it nice and steady.

Chorus Three:
        G            Eb               D
Now I'm getting that sick taste in my mouth
         G               Eb         Bb
From the medicine that I can't keep down...
         G                     Eb        D
You know time heals nothing by itself
      G            Eb      Bb
I see that ever so clearly now

(just stay playing a Bb awhile then keep playing it over Bridge Two's lyrics)

End on Bb.

*I swear up and down that this line is actually "Laughing, you won't get to the weaker traits" or 
but this line is the general consensus, and I don't have the cd booklet to check it out with...  Listen and decide 
yourself...
