/ Bright Eyes / Lifted or the Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground (2002) / Method Acting guitar tab

Method Acting:

         Em                                B7
There's no beginning to the story, a bookshelf sinks into the sand
     C                                        G  Fm7 (200230)
And a language learned and forgot, in turn, is studied once again
      Em                                    B7
It's a shocking bit of footage viewed from a shitty TV screen
       C                               G Fm7
You can squint out into snowy static to make out the meaning
           Em                                B7
And keep on stretching the antenna hoping that it will come clear
            C                                 G Fm7
We need some reception, a higher message, just tell us what to fear

      Am      D         G D       C
'Cause I don't know what tomorrow brings
    Am     D               G D     C
It's alive with such possibilities
Am    D              G      D     C
All I know is I feel better when I sing
           D
Burdens are lifted from me
                 Em   B7 C G
That's my voice rising

Em B7 C G Em B7 C G

            Em                                      B7
So, Michael, please keep the tape rolling, boys keep strumming those guitars
         C                                    G Fm7
We need a record of our failures, yes, we must document our love
    Em                                     B7
I've sat too long in my silence, I've grown too old in my pain
  C                                    G Fm7
To shed this skin, be born again, it starts with an ending

  Am         D                G  D  C
So thank you, friends, for the time we shared
       An          D           G  D   C
My love stays with you like sunlight and air
            An     D                 G       D      C
And though I truly wish I could keep hanging around here
         D
My joy is covering me
                 Em  B7 C G
Soon, I will disappear

Em B7 C G

C
It's not a movie
Em
No private screening
Am
This method acting
        D
Well, I call that living
  C
It's like a fountain
Em
A door has opened
Am
We have a problem
     D
With no solution
      C              B7
But to love and to be loved

  Am        D              G   D   C
So I've made peace with the falling leaves
     Am          D          G   D C
I see their same fate in my own body
           Am      D              G      D         C
But I won't be frightened when I'm awoken from this dream
     D
And returned to that which
             Em B7 C G
Gave birth to me

Em B7 C G
Gave birth to me
Gave birth to me
Gave birth to me
And the story goes
And the story goes
And it goes on and on and on and on
It's going on and on and on and on
