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
