BAND: The Airborne Toxic Event
Q/C/C: email me: schm2213@umn.edu


Probably the prettiest song by this band to date. Absolutely heartwrenching.
NOTE: this is based on one particular live version. It is “Live at Birmingham Academy,”
in the UK on the 7th of November 2009. It was played during a set that is available for
download in its entirety (like an hour and a half long track) on the Airborne website.
I have seen this song performed live, and it was played slightly differently, and most
youtube clips I have seen all play it differently as well. Most versions I’ve seen he uses
a capo (sometimes 3, sometimes 4...); sometimes he plays A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramG+G A, sometimes A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC D. I guess we
won’t know the official version until the studio version comes out, but this version, the one
I’ve downloaded from their website, is the prettiest version I’ve heard, so I’d suggest everyone
grab a copy of it.

If you have a different version somehow and you really like THAT version and it sounds slightly
different, then try messing around with a capo, or if worst comes to worst replace the chords
below with the following: A chord diagramD MajorD -> G, A chord diagramG+G -> C, A chord diagramA augmentedA -> D, and move the capo around again.

LAST NOTE: The way I hear it (for this version; no capo, standard tuning), he (Mikel)
avoids the top e string a lot, emphasizing instead the unchanging note A chord diagramD MajorD on the A chord diagramBB string
(3rd fret), like the tremolo. Sometimes he does play the e string, and sometimes, instead of
the A chord diagramD MajorD chord he plays Bm. It’s too hard to tell, and at this point it’s too irregular, to put
the Bm’s in this tab, so I’m just going to put D’s in and if you want to throw in the occasional
A chord diagramB minorBm go for it.



Song starts off with Anna’s (viola) tremolo on note A chord diagramD MajorD (8th fret, high e-string). Eventually, when
Steven (guitar) begins mimicking, he tremolo’s in a similar pattern. It’s pretty much (top e
string): 8 8 8 10 (in same time as chords below, trem each). Sometimes they go up to 12, and one
or both of them might add a second note via the A chord diagramBB string.



Intro: (after lead-in trem from Anna)
A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramA augmentedA  x4

A chord diagramD MajorD
How can I explain to you
A chord diagramG+G
The picture of this avenue?
A chord diagramD MajorD
The rain falls on the street outside
A chord diagramA augmentedA
My window on this Thursday afternoon
A chord diagramD MajorD
I sit alone inside
A chord diagramG+G
These sinful walls I've lived inside
A chord diagramD MajorD
So many lies I’ve lived and died
A chord diagramA augmentedA
None so much as the one I’ve lived with you.
A chord diagramD MajorD                    A chord diagramG+G
I see you on the highway
(A chord diagramG+G)
A chord diagramA augmentedA thousand miles away
A chord diagramD MajorD
Rain falls through your hair and cheeks
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Tears and mascara streaks
A chord diagramD MajorD
Your face reflected in the glass
A chord diagramG+G
Lines in the pavement go past
A chord diagramD MajorD
Just like the lines around your eyes
A chord diagramA augmentedA
That held the weight of all these sad goodbyes


Interlude:
A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramA augmentedA    x 4
(I think the last time is A chord diagramB minorBm A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramD MajorD A...)

A chord diagramD MajorD
Everybody that I know
A chord diagramG+G
Tell me just to let it go
A chord diagramD MajorD
You run from everything, they say
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Hurt the ones you love blindly
A chord diagramD MajorD
But here I sit and picture you
A chord diagramG+G
With fingers worn, your shirt torn through
A chord diagramD MajorD
Your heart's so big and broke in two
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Your mind drifting through all you knew
A chord diagramD MajorD
Afraid to love, afraid to lose
A chord diagramG+G
Afraid to start, afraid to choose
A chord diagramD MajorD
Afraid to live, afraid to die
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Afraid to let you days slip by
A chord diagramD MajorD
Afraid you’ll change or stay the same
A chord diagramG+G
Afraid we’ll lose ourselves again
A chord diagramD MajorD                        A chord diagramA augmentedA
Afraid of the truth that love

                        A chord diagramD MajorD
Could cause you so much pain

(A chord diagramD MajorD) A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramD MajorD

  A chord diagramA augmentedA
I know
           A chord diagramD MajorD
I felt it, too
   A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramD MajorD
I know, I know
A chord diagramA augmentedA
      Darlin, I wish it wasn't true.


(end on A chord diagramD MajorD)
