Parallel Or Together
Ted Leo & The Pharmacists Parallel or Together? See chord diagrams at bottom of page, as all may not be what it seems... This song has the same pattern throughout, the pattern being: Dsus2 | A* | Bm Bm/A | G | F# | Em Dsus2 | Em* | Bm Bm/A | G | F# | Em Verse 1 Dsus2 We're caught in a landslide A* Bm The minutes come tumbling down Bm/A And into an hour's time G F# Within which a day's worth of work Must be planned out and pan out Em Dsus2 For every week to be worth The weekends of downtime Em* Bm And months of ennui that kills Bm/A And years of resentment G F# Of everyone's contentment, and you Em Can't justify it, still Repeat chord progression x2 Verse 2: Same chords I tell you my reasons You don't tell me your inside jokes Until I've gone bitter on Every word that you've spoken And all of your kind words Amounting to naught but a token And all their inaction Will tumble away with the days And nights of together As we're really not together at all But parallel Verse 3: Same again Now I'm walking on downtown In a town that is not my home And shopping for breakfast To be eaten all alone And dreaming of houses None of them that I own But that's not my province That's not for what I am known So I gather around me All the little pieces of a song And fit them where they belong Verse 4: Yep, same again So go to your downtown And bring what you've brought back home And you never should worry Your hours will now be as long As the days that you hurried And months when it all seemed wrong And all of the action Will tumble away with the years And parallel evenings And parallel tracks of our tears And nights of together are where? Play second progression again, and repeat until the end So I gather around me All the little pieces of a song And fit them where they belong Dsus2 xx0230 A* x4x22x Bm x24432 Bm/A x04430 G 355433 F# 244322 Em 022000 Em* x79987 Easy.
