Jens Lekman – To Know Your Mission Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Jens Lekman
Song : To Know Your Mission

[Intro] : 
   D                 A                 Bm
A Mormon missionary walks through Vasa Allén
           G                F#m        Em
Through a clear-as-crystal Gothenburg morning
 A                                      D     G     G/F#
Removing his suit jacket, loosening his tie
 Em         F#m           G                           D   A
Wiping the sweat from his neck and the sleep from his eyes
      D         A               Bm       A
It's 1997, the last morning of August
        G          F#m                  Em
At the corner of 7-Eleven he hears the broadcast
 A                           D                G    G/F#
Another saint is lost, Lady Di's returned to stardust
    Em             F#m    G     A                  D
He listens to the tragic news, followed by the Top 10 tunes

[Interlude] : D  Bm D  Bm D  Bm D  Bm 

[Verse 1] : 
      D                  A           Bm
Will Smith, Puff Daddy, Gala, Chumbawamba
        G                 F#m                   Em
On the other side of the street he passes Café Java
        F#m           G
Where no one listens to that crap
      F#m                  G
Both coffee and hair dyed raven black
        Em      F#m   G               D   A
All so sure of everything except one question

[Chorus] : 
            D       Bm
What's our mission?
             G    A
What are we here for?
            F#m    Bm
Who are we serving?
            G     A
What can we do?
            D       Bm
What's our mission?
             G    A
What are we here for?
            F#m    Bm
Who are we serving?
            G     A
What can we do?

[Verse 2] : 
    C                    G                       D
He bumps into a teenage boy leaning 'gainst the fence
               C                       G                A
Who takes his headphones off and introduces himself as Jens
 F#m                  G                         F#m          G
Riffling through the Book of Mormon, says it's way too early in the morning
            Em      F#m   G                    D                 A
Instead of talking about religion can we just talk about how it feels

[Chorus] : 
              D       Bm
To know your mission
                     G    A
To know what you're here for
                   F#m  Bm
To know who you're serving
                G     A  
To know what to do?
              D       Bm
To know your mission
                     G    A
To know what you're here for
                   F#m  Bm
To know who you're serving
                G     A  
To know what to do?

[Bridge] : 
           Em
To have a dream
               Em
A GPS in your heart
           Bm
A path to follow
             G
Through the dark
                          D
Well, Jens says, I write songs sometimes
                   A
But they're kinda bad
                    Em
So if that doesn't work out
                                           A
I want to be a social worker just like my dad
                                   D
I just want to listen to people's stories
                      A
Hear what they have to say
                                   Em
My friends say, "Just be a shrink then"
                                                A
But I don't know. I don't think I'll have the grades.
                   D
But in a world of mouths
                 A
I want to be an ear
              Em
If there's a purpose to all this
      A                     D    Bm
Then that's why God put me here

[Post Bridge] : 
                 G    A
I know what I'm here for
                F#m     Bm
I know who I'm serving
             G     A
I'm serving you

[Outro] : D  Bm
          G  A
          F#m  Bm

             G   A
I'm serving you

Jens Lekman – How Can I Tell Him Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Jens Lekman
Song : How Can I Tell Him

[Verse 1] : 
                 Fm    Bb   Eb
It's the morning after
                                           Fm     Bb    Eb
And we're on a train zigzagging 'cross the countryside
                       Fm    Bb   Eb
On our way home from a party
                      Fm Bb
That turned insane
                   Fm      Bb   Eb
He dozes off on my shoulder
                        Fm    Bb  Eb
Wakes up suddenly, apologizes
         Eb
Looks the other way

[Chorus] : 
   Fm      Bb
So tell me how
Eb
Tell me how I can tell him I love him
   Fm      Bb
So tell me how

[Verse 2] : 
                    Fm    Bb  Eb
The neighbor came a-knocking
Eb
Said she'd call the cops
                            Fm    Bb
He said, "I'll turn down the stereo"
             Eb
Pretended to adjust the volume knob
         Fm    Bb
He's my best friend
           Eb
And we can talk about anything
   Fm              Bb
As long it's about nothing
   Eb
As long as it don't cut deeper than the skin

[Chorus] : 
Fm      Bb
Tell me how
Eb
Tell me how I can tell him I love him
   Fm      Bb
So tell me how
Eb
Tell me how I can tell him I love him, so
Fm      Bb
Tell me how

[Bridge] : 
                  Fm
I mean I guess he knows
            Bb Eb                                            Fm    Bb Eb
Just like I know when he says something funny and I laugh from my belly
               Fm                              Bb
Or when Sandra left him and I held him when he cried
      Eb                                      Fm Bb Eb
For a moment he left his guard down and so did I

[Verse 3] : 
                     Fm    Bb   Eb       
But it's so deep within me,     the way a man should be
                      Fm  Bb Eb
Passed on through generations of men before me
                    Fm Bb Eb
A line drawn in the sand to keep us apart
             Fm   Bb Eb
A rusty, old padlock hanging on our hearts
   Fm      Bb
So tell me how

[Outro] : 
                    Fm   Bb  Eb
We part ways at the station
                                        Fm  Bb Eb
He's got his bike and he rides into the gap

'Tween day and night
            Fm Bb Eb
Before he's gone 

he shouts, "Later, dude"
         Fm   Bb
I think, "Yeah
Eb
I love you too"
