Make Good Choices
this is mostly just what the bass is doing, it works just fine as chords to play this unplugged-style. the persistent choppy guitar is mostly just 5 5 5 5 7 7 7 7 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x but i don't know that there's much way to work that in if you're not playing on top of a bassline so i just left them out. The D# just before the chorus is just a passing tone so you could easily leave it out completely; if you do play it, rather than barring it to play it properly I just slide up from D for xxx343 and then play the Em of the chorus as xxx453. It's got closer to the right sound anyway. Intro/Verse: G Bm Em Am C G Bm I promise everything's alright, it's just I think of you sometimes Em I like to stay up after midnight and listen for the chimes Am C We used to hear...so loud and clear D D# But I haven't heard that song in years Chorus: Em D Am A wise old man was once heard to say "The things that always cause us the most pain Em D Are those from which we are always Am The least prepared to walk away C D Em That's probably why I had you on the brain. Verse 2: G Bm When I learned I couldn't count on you when I was my most desperate Em When nothing that you said was true, and breaking down my es- Am C p-rit des corps (...) was your most beloved chore Still I couldn't close the iron door G Bm I saved a little face; it was a fool's economy Em It ended in disgrace, screaming "get the hell away from me" Am I put you in your place. I knew you wouldn't stay there C D D# But you had such vulgar taste, you even had the gall to ask for car fare Chorus 2: Em D Am I thought of calling you up yesterday, And then I came rushing back to my good senses Em D It was all I could do just to obey: Am C D Em I started hearing voices warning me to make good choices Solo break (if you keep it at all, which if you're playing by yourself, I wouldn't)/Verse 3: G Bm Em Am C G Bm I saw your shadow play and thought "What kind of farce is this?" Em But what I said was "a dying breed." Your smile was disarming Am C 'Cause nothing is more charming than a narcissist with whom you've just agreed D D# Em Make good choices, thank you very much indeed Chorus 3: Em D Am I used to dream of you nightly; I would wake up screaming Em D Am I'll try to put it politely: when you're not near my heart rejoices. Don't come near me, make good choices. Em D Am Your face was perfectly straight; you said that, "Basically, Em D Am Most people hate their friends," and I say it depends- I have so much, so much I want to tell you, C D Em And nowhere to begin.
