Natural Light Chords

Postby LastLawson » Tue Mar 11, 2014 9:35 pm

Tuned to D standard. Most of these are played as barre chords, but open chords sound fine as well. Quite a few of these chords variate between major and minor... so there will be a few mistakes :? 7ths are also possible. Lyrics from DBT site.

Natural Light

A F# Bm
If it weren't for the glow of the screen my dear,
G E A E
I’d think you were someone I used to know
A F# Bm
But its your natural light I need to guide me home
G E A E
I’ll bring it about if you’ll just let it show

A F# Bm
Once in a while there’s a spectacle
G E A E
A big deal to some, but too long for most
A F# Bm
to be stuck between blasts while the colors fall
G E A
stuck with yourself while it reloads

D E F#m
Sometimes it’s as cold as a loveless embrace
D E A
or hot like a low seething rage
D E F#m
It ends where it ends, when it does it begins
G G# C#m
It cries when it wants, it wants when it needs and it bleeds

Interlude:
F#m B E
F#m B E
Bm E A F#m
G E

D E C#m F#m
When the countdown is up, you will wake up my love
D E A
and shine with your own light again
D E C#m F#m
From the neck up and down It’s the down that I’m out
G E
to light up in you once again

A F# Bm
If it weren't for the glow of the screen my dear,
G E A E
I’d think you were someone I used to know
A F# Bm
But its your natural light I need to guide me home
G E A E
I’ll bring it back if you’ll just let it show
D E A
I’ll bring it back if you’ll just let it show

Outro:
(A F# Bm G E A E) x3
A

I love this song and it is becoming one of my Cooley favorites. I especially love that change in the song at "Sometimes it's as cold...."

Thanks for the chords.
