Conor Oberst – Tachycardia Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Conor Oberst
Song : Tachycardia

[Verse] :
C            Em
It's a mass grave
Dm                C
A dollar-fifty resting place
C            Em
On the north face
Dm                      G
there's a rope I've gotta climb
Am              Em
I'm a stone's throw 
F                 Em
from everyone I love and know
Am           Em      
But I can't show 
   F           G
up looking like I do

C          Em
In an old suit 
Dm                          C
my hair is slicked up back nice and smooth
C           Em
In a court room, 
Dm                     G
sweat rolling down my back
Am          Em
It's a bad dream
F                 Em
I have it seven times a week
Am           Em
No it was not me
F                    G      C
But I'm the one who has to die

[Instrumental] : C Em Dm C
                 C Em Dm G
                 Am G F G

[Verse] : 
C             Em
Needs a cold draw 
Dm                  C
to slow his tachycardia
C         Em
In a dark bar 
Dm                    G
the world just melts away
Am            Em
And he feels fine
F                     Em
If he can just lose track of time
Am           Em
It's a good sign 
F                  G
when he can't stay awake

C          Em
On a slow day 
Dm                     C
the rain against the windowpane 
C        Em 
of the cafe
Dm                       G
She spills the coffee grounds
Am              Em
And the same thought 
F                    Em
hits her like a cinder block
Am             Em
Life's an odd job 
F                      G           C
that she don't got the nerve to quit

[Instrumental] : C Em Dm C
                 C Em Dm G
                 Am G F G
[Verse] : C Em Yeah it's just there Dm C At the bottom of those spiral stairs C Em It's the world's fair Dm G The future's on display Am Em In the still night F Em They turned on the electric lights Am Em And the crowd cried out F G C Everyone looked so amazed [Outro] : C F C G Am G F Em Dm C
