Lanterns

capo 4th fret

E             G                 E            G                     
You've been the story of my life on the crash side
E             G        D      C
you were the razor and balloon
E             G                 E            G
So when I opened up my eyes on the hillside
E             G        D      C         D
I see the light as it shines... from... the moon

Am               G        D 
breaking off the branches
fighting off the sadness
taking on the madness 
E       G
for you

E             G                 E            G  
theres an angle on your face that I can't shake
E             G        D      C
cause im a figure and a fool for you
E             G                 E            G 
theres a moment that we made now we can't change it
E             G        D      C         D
see the light as it breaks... through... the room

Am               G        D 
tracing all the patterns
fusing all the atoms
lighting up the lanterns
letting go of all the lanterns

...
Dm   F   C   G   
Dm   F   C   G
Gm   B♭   F   C 
Gm   B♭   F   C 


Am               G        D 
tracing all the patterns
fusing all the atoms
lighting up the lanterns
letting go of all the lanterns
im letting go of all the lanterns 
E      G
for you

Treetops Tablature

capo 4th fret

C                                   F
From way up here the world is just a blur
you're my only distraction
amazed the fear of faces in the church
Am              E               F
just hearts called into action

Am7                     F       C       G
Dancing on the tree tops tonight
Am7                    F                       C            G    F
Hiding from the people and the lights, here we are here we are

C                  F
We sleep and dream never fall apart
just stone cold on the outside
we make mistakes on the surface we've got scars
Am                E                    F
but were all good on the inside

Am7                               F        C   G
cause we're dancing on the tree tops tonight
Hiding from the people and the lights, here we are
close your eyes and dont look down the world is just a memory now
dancing on the tree tops tonight, here we are here we are

F        G       Am7

                                F   G    Am7
cause im never gonna let you go
                                F   G    Am7
cause here we are
                                F   G   C
im never gonna let you go

Am7                    F                   C       G
dancing on the tree tops tonight
hiding from the people and the lights, here we are
close your eyes and dont look down the world is just a memory now
dancing on the tree tops tonight here we are here we are

F        G       Am7

cause im never gonna let you go
im never gonna let you go
cause im never gonna let you go

here we are

Favorite Song Tablature
http://hdaee.org/tab/favorite-song/

I like to strum different strings of these chords to get a sound similar to Howie picking the notes out but that’s just me.

C (add9) - x32033
D/F# - 2x0232 (use your thumb on the low E string)
Em7 - 022033
G - 320033

G         C G            C G
Waiting for a simple code
G                   D/F#      G    C G
I write it down for all to see
your trust is like a little light
I carry around but never use

Em7     C             G          D/F#
I'll be getting on my way tonight
Em7     C             G
I will play my favorite song
I will listen to the wind outside
I will hear my favorite chord
my favorite chord

Waking up in a different place
warm sun against my face
I recognize the world outside
strangest tenor in my voice

I am staying where I am tonight
I will wear my only clothes
I am staring out to sea tonight
I will play my favorite song
to it all...
to it all...

Waiting for a simple code
write it down for all to see
waving lights are in your eyes
and I will play my favorite song

Medicine Ball Tablature
http://hdaee.org/tab/medicine-ball/ ‎

Please let me know if any of the chords or lyrics look wrong. He is really hard to understand in some places.

Am - x02210
C  - x32010
Dm - xx0231
E  - 022100
Em - 022000 (or 022003)
F  - x03210 (or x03010 or x03013)
G  - 320003 (or 320013) 

C         Em                  Am          F
come on I'm reeling here on a rock
counting the places where hearts go
maybe our ancestors try to mock us
no im just playing a life that'll change

just can't fight the desire to love
just can't lie to a child thats within

Dm       E                    Am       G
lovers lips are no kind of friend
everyone dreams that the pragmatic come

C         Em                  Am          F
hit in the stomach a medicine ball
wipe off the dirt and pull back your hair

Dm       E                              Am       G
head in the clouds meet the state that I'm in
need a shelter never and end...    yeah

C         Em                  Am          F
...

Dm            E                     Am       G
seeing the world for the way that I am
need a center always an end

C         Em                  Am          F
I'm only feeling my way through the dark
counting the places I'll never go
so lucky with you that I want to try
so lucky with you that I want to try
