																				DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE - MARCHING BANDS OF MANHATTAN (ACCOUSTIC)
Tabbed by: Allions
Standard Tunning

VERSE 1
C                   G

If I could open my arms 
Dm                            Am
And span the length of the isle of Manhattan, 
C                          G

I'd bring it to where you are 
Dm                     Am
Making a lake of the East River and Hudson 
C                       G

And if I could open my mouth 
Dm                  Am
Wide enough for a marching band to march out of 
C                          G

They would make your name sing 
Dm                             Am
And bend through alleys and bounce off other buildings. 

C   Am   C   G   
C   Am   C   G




    

VERSE 2
C                         G

I wish we could open our eyes 
Dm                 Am
To see in all directions at the same time 
C                    G

Oh what a beautiful view 
Dm                  Am
If you were never aware of what was around you 
C                        G

And it is true what you said 
Dm                  Am
That I live like a hermit in my own head 
C                        G

But when the sun shines again 
Dm                            Am
I'll pull the curtains and blinds to let the light in. 

CHORUS
F                     Am               
Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole 
C                            G

Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound 
F                     Am
But while you debate half empty or half full 
C               G

It slowly rises, your love is gonna drown

F      Am      C      G

                         Your love is gonna drown
F      Am      C      G                       (F)
                         Your love is gonna...

If I could open my arms
And span the length of the isle of Manhattan
I'd bring it to where you are
Making a lake of the East River and Hudson

If I could open my mouth
Wide enough for a marching band to march out
They would make your name sing
And bend through allies and bounce off all the buildings

I wish we could open our eyes
To see in all directions at the same
Oh what a beautiful view
If you were never aware of what was around you

And it is true what you said
That I live like a hermit in my own head
But when the sun shines again
I'll pull the curtains and blinds to let the light in

Sorrow drips into your heart through a pin hole
Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound
But while you debate half empty and half full
It slowly rises, your love is gonna drown

Your love is gonna drown
