The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness Chords version 3 by The National

This works quite well without the capo, but if you want to play along the original record you'll need one
on the 8th fret. Have fun!
[Verse 1]
Am                   D
Maybe I listen more than you think
Em                 D
I can tell that somebody sold you
Am               D
We said we’ve never let anyone in
Em          D
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets
[Chorus]
C          D                G
The system only dreams in total darkness
Am
Why are you hiding from me?
C          D                 G
We’re in a different kind of thing now
Am
All night you’re talking to God
[Verse 2]
Am                  D
I thought that this would all work out after a while
Em                         D
Now you’re saying that I’m asking for too much attention
Am                    D
Also no other faith is light enough for this place
Em                    D
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets
[Chorus]
C          D                G
The system only dreams in total darkness
Am
Why are you hiding from me?
C          D                 G
We’re in a different kind of thing now
Am
All night you’re talking to God
[Bridge]
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
[Chorus]
C          D                G
The system only dreams in total darkness
Am
Why are you hiding from me?
C          D                 G
We’re in a different kind of thing now
Am
All night you’re talking to God
[Outro]
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
C          D
I cannot explain it
G          Am
Any other, any other way
