Forest Whitaker chords – Bad Books V3

 Artist - Bad Books 
Song - Forest Whittaker

Standard Tuning - E, A, D, G, B, and E

No Capo.

 C Em 
You started a fire
 F G 
That was never supposed to burn out
 C Em 
You started a band
 F G 
That was cool for a while, but it turned pretty bland
 C Em 
I started a fight
 F G 
With a neighbour next door and his pesky wife?
 C Em 
You started a job
 F G 
That you hate when you’re sober, and hate even more when you’re not.
 F G C G Am G F  
And I know, you hate me too;
 F G C 
You always say you do.

 C Em 
You moved to Japan
 F G 
Thought a clean bill of health and a camera could show you the plan
 C Em 
I bought a bird
 F G 
That repeats what I say, but, “I’m lonely” is all that he’s heard.
 C Em 
You found a guy
 F G 
That is clearly the opposite of me, with a black motorbike
 C Em 
I dicked around
 F G 
But it’s just like a movie whose picture is off with the sound.

 F G C G Am G F  
And I know, you hate me too.....
 F G C 
You always say you do.

 C Em 
You started to write
 F G 
It was subtle at first, but the danger was clearly inside
 C Em 
I don’t reply 
 F G 
Due to lack of an ego, and laziness, it cuts like a knife
 C Em 
You say that you’re good
 F G 
Had a baby with biker, and named him “Forest Whitaker”
 C Em 
I’m laying low
 F G 
On the probable chance you convince me to give him a home 

 F G C G Am G F  
And I know, you hate me too.............
 F G C 
You always say you do.
 F G C G Am G F  
And I know, you hate me too............
 F G C 
You always say you do.

Books And Letters chords – The Morning Light

 I can't believe there are no tabs for this incredible song, so I did what I could. 
It's definitely not perfect - I did my best.

Standard Tuning ; No Capo

           D  
With your head held high,
    A Bm 
Pretend that you're alright without me.
         D A Bm 
And I'm better now that I'm without your fears.
          D A Bm G 
And I'll write this down, sound it out.
     G A D 
And pretend there's something more left in your town.


      D A Bm 
I'll sit through months away from home without you.
     D A Bm 
And 4,000 miles away is all I need, 
            G 
For you to realize what you need.
            D A 
But you're clean cut and exposed,
          Bm G 
And I've never felt more at home.
          G A D 
But I'll pretend there's something more left in your town.



 D A 
I'm falling in and out of love,
 Bm G 
Finally stopping what we were made of.
 D A Bm G 
"Oh, oh, you're done."
    D A 
By summer I'll have you on your knees,
      Bm G 
Come August and you'll lie right through your teeth.
          G A D 
And it's oh so typical but what I need.


     D A 
I'm writing books through letters,
          Bm G 
That I'm sure you'll never read.
     D A 
I'm searching through a postcard,
         Bm G 
To find any trace of me.
            G A 
But you've traded thoughts of me,
          D Bm 
For this new life that comes cheap.
           G A G 
And I can only pray it falls beneath your feet.



 D A 
I'm falling in and out of love,
 Bm G 
Finally stopping what we were made of.
 D A Bm G 
"Oh, oh, you're done."
    D A 
By summer I'll have you on your knees,
      Bm G 
Come August and you'll lie right through your teeth.
          G A D 
And it's oh so typical but what I need.


 D A Bm 
You're done is just what I need,
     G A G 
And your violent attempts to come clean.




 D A 
I'm falling in and out of love,
 Bm G 
Finally stopping what we were made of.
 D A Bm G 
"Oh, oh, you're done."
    D A 
By summer I'll have you on your knees,
      Bm G 
Come August and you'll lie right through your teeth.
          G A D 
And it's oh so typical but what I need.

 D 
"You're done."

    A Bm G D 
Is just what I need

Boys In Books Are Better chords – Carrie Hope Fletcher

 Capo 5

( A D A D )

VERSE ONE:

    A 
It started off with Jacob
          D 
But then Edward came along
   A 
I had a thing for Emmett
        D 
But my love for Jasper's strong
    A 
Or maybe even Carlisle
     D 
But that would just be strange
       G 
These boys in books are better
             E 
Cause they're never gonna change

VERSE TWO:
 A 
I wish I was Hermione,
           D 
Cause those Weasley boys are fit
     A 
And I'd date Draco Malfoy
      D 
If I thought he would commit
    A 
Or maybe Cedric Diggory
     D 
But he's in Hufflepuff.
       G 
These boys in books are better
       E 
And I just can't get enough

PRE-CHORUS:

 D A 
Of reading everything about them
       D A 
These guys I will always depend upon  
     D A 
And maybe there's a guy out there just like them
       G E 
Who's looking for a girl like Bella Swan
Nah!

CHORUS:

       A D 
These boys in books are better,
       A D 
Cause they'll be here forever
     A D 
And we'll always be together
     G 
And you can take me bowling
             E 
If you were made up by Rowling.

( A D A D )

VERSE THREE:

 A 
I was sold on Gale
       D 
Who's strong and brave and tall.
     A 
But then she gave us Peeta
       D 
Who I think confused us all
     A 
But Finnick's where my heart is
    D 
So Annie, move aside!
     G 
But why can't I have fallen for
     E 
The ones that didn't die?!


VERSE FOUR:

       A 
Don't even get me started
    D 
On Pride and Prejudice
      A 
I've looked for Mr Darcy
           D 
Girls, he really don't exist.
     A 
But then again, there's Bingley --
     D 
So Jane, get out the way,
       G 
Cause I love a bit of cheesiness,
       E 
And I love a good cliché,

PRE-CHORUS:
 D A 
So boys I hope you're taking notice
       D A 
Cause I'm one in a huge majority
   D A 
I think that I'm more of a Luna Lovegood
     G E 
But if you ask me nice, I could be your Ginny.


CHORUS:

       A D 
These boys in books are better,
       A D 
Cause they'll be here forever
           A D 
And we'll always be together
     G 
And you could be a player,
             E 
But I won't care if you're from Meyer.


BRIDGE:

       D 
Don't make me use
 A 
Accio
 D 
Come on Darcy,
 A 
Please bring Draco!
 D 
Finnick's body
 A 
With Edward's looks
     G E 
But hurry up before I close the book!


CHORUS:

       A D 
These boys in books are better,
       A D 
Cause they'll be here forever
           A D 
And we'll always be together
       G            
And you can be my man
                E 
If you've been written by Suzanne
 A D 
Boys in books are better,
       A D 
Cause they'll be here
