The Church

Of Skins and Heart

For a Moment We’re Strangers

(Kilbey)

[Em]In the empty place the soul stripped bare
Of skins and heart and I come a[G]part
In your icy [Bm]hands
I forget my [Am]role, [D]as I stare into your [C]soul
[Em]In the empty place you change your mind
You change your clothes you change your [G]pose
for a perfect [Bm]fit
I forget the [Am]cast, [D]as I stare into your [C]past

{soc}
[G]For a moment we're s[C]trangers
[G]For a minute you l[C]ook away
[G]For a second or [Em]always
[F]For an instant another [Em]day
[F]Such strange things you [Em]say
{eoc}

In the empty place we dress our wounds
Collect our coats, a window gloats
Above a street
I prepare my case, as I stare into your face

{c:Chorus}

Just one me one you
The world contains a few
Is it true, is it truly new
Are we through the stolen door once more

Chrome Injury

(Kilbey)

[D]Cut your life into the steel
Take your place behind the wheel
Watch the metal scene just peel a[A]way
[D]Don't forget me, don't regret me
Don't replace and don't upset me
But don't forget to come and get me some[A]day

[D]I was somewhere far away
But I knew I couldn't stay
German girls in an expo[A]se
[D]Sitting on an empty train
Staring at the winter rain
Going through the scene again and a[A]gain

{soc}
[Bm]Poor tormented [F#m]automan
[A]Giant pincers [E]for a hand
[Bm]Sinking slowly [F#m]in the sand [A] [E]
[Bm]Chrome injury [F#m]on his cheek
[A]Three days strong, [E]four days weak
[Bm]Listen as he [F#m]tries to speak [A] [E]
If only I could feel [D]
{eoc}

Falling down standing still
Always there's more time to kill
Flamingos startled in a shrill display
Don't forget me, don't regret me
Don't replace and don't upset me
But don't forget to come and get me some day

{c:Chorus}

If I [F]only wasn't steel

The Unguarded Moment

(Kilbey / Parker)

So [C]hard finding inspi[F]ration
I knew you'd find me [C]crying
Tell those girls with [G]rifles for minds
That their [Em]jokes don't make me laugh
[F]They only make me feel like [C]dying
In an unguarded [F]moment [G]

So long, long between mirages
I knew you'd find me drinking
Tell those men with horses for hearts
That their jibes don't make me bleed
They only make me feel like shrinking
In an unguarded moment

{ci:Bridge, play 2 times}
[D] [A]  [D] [A]  [Bb]  [C]

So deep, deep without a meaning
I knew you'd find me leaving
Tell those friends with cameras for eyes
That their hands don't make me hang
They only make me feel like breathing
In an unguarded moment

Drew James offers tab for the bridge of this great song.

I can offer at least the bridge to The Unguarded Moment.
Here it goes: (this is the part that Peter plays (at least on
Goldfish))

E | 10-9----10-9----10-10----10----12----10
B | 10-10---10-10---11---11----11--13----11
G |  9-9-----9-9----10-----10------12----10

E | 10-9----10-9----10-------------12----10
B | 10-10---10-10---11-------------13----11
G |  9-9-----9-9----10-------------12----10

E | 10-9----10-9----10-------------12----13
B | 10-10---10-10---11-------------13----13
G |  9-9-----9-9----10-------------12----12

To get the timing right you really have to listen to the song
(duh) but you just keep playing the xxx(10)(11)(10) instead of
picking it the second and third times through.

Tab for solo transcribed by Russell Cook 25 Apr 1996:

This is my first go at tabing and I am going by memory
as I don't have the record available at the moment. At
least it's in the same key as the Chord transcription
below. Transcription is in 1/16 notes. A "." below a note
is a dotted note.

Memories In Future Tense

(Kilbey)

[Em]Last year today seemed a long way away
And [C]ahead of me
A [Em]new face and street, people who meet you
In[C]stead of me
[B]They bring you, [A]they take you
[B]They own you, [A]they make you

[Em]Last year today you turn and you say
Here's a [C]dream for me
[Em]You close your eyes, the moon starts to rise
And you [C]scream for me
[B]I calm you, [A]I'm with you
[B]What did they [A]ever give you [D]

{soc}
[G]Memories in future tense
Memories don't make much [D]sense
{eoc}

Last year today a radio plays
Such a simple song
The music surreal and you almost could feeel
That there's nothing wrong
They bought you, they sold you
And all the things they told you

So down to the beach just out of reach
The moon was being trailed
A girl and a sailor and a hot dog trailer
That's their holy grail

The sand whispered heat and burned the feet
Of gulls landing on the shore
In the motel pool the waitress cools
She doesn't ask for more

She makes a wish she takes a risk
She opens up her door
Through human eyes she's a dolphin in disguise
It's the last night of the war

Somewhere far away there's another day
And someone's getting out of bed
She put on her face in the morning space
She doesn't know she's dead

Her [G]ruby lips can't [F]excite me any[C]more
And [Dm]pain sprawls on the [F]chair, it's always [C]there
And [Dm]he descends the [F]stairs, he doesn't [C]see
The [Dm]sunburnt landlord [F]glares, for all the [C]people [Dm]
He can [F]never be [C] [Dm]

Is This Where You Live

(Kilbey)

[D]Oceanic lights are cleverly dim
Blueish features in the lower reaches
We raise out traffic flares to him
Fishnet, girlish the red ones spark
Holy arcs tracked in the dark
The more I see the less I look
Here's another name I took
Listen! In the early morning air
The remnants of their evening wear
Branching off, the road winds east
Deluxe locations just near completion
Come dine with wine and oyster feast
The pearls are real, have one for free
They're washed up by the foam waved sea
The more I look the less I smile
Never mind let's stay awhile
The fans blow secrets on the night
Out of mind but not out of sight
Is this where you live

[D]Broken voices the nylon choir
Nothing left to stoke that fire
[F]All they own is on their tongues
[D]They never see or wonder if
[G]Is this where you [D]live

[D]Thin dog's don't vie for bones
Why desert just to be alone
[F]All they own is on their backs
[D]They can't believe it's you I'm with
[G]Is this where you [D]live

[D]Don't blush as I brush your touch
No need for any speed or rush
[F]All you own is on the floor
[D]I'm buying all you're gonna give
[G]Is this where you [D]live

[D]Coffee stories the lying truth
Electric lights don't help my youth
[F]All I owned is on my face
[D]Urbane mirror anger myth
[G]Is this where you [D]live

She Never Said

(Kilbey)

[Em]I'm not exact but I'm [F]not insane
I [Em]clutched at someone in the [F]dark again
[Em]It's so hard to re[F]member her name she never [Em]said

[Em]It was in a story that I [F]wanted to write
[Em]The details weren't important, the [F]plot was slight
[Em]No-one asked what [F]happened that night she never [Em]said

{soc}
[Em]Get out of bed, [D]pull on a shoe
[C]I've got a notion what we [B7]ought to do
[Em]Here's a number you can [D]try to ring
[C]I'm still thinking about [B7]all the things she never [Em]said [F]
{eoc}


I parked my car by some memories
And told my story to the laughing trees
They don't know what's wrong with me, she never said

All the letters had the wrong address
Did you notice who cleared up the mess
What the date was is anybody's guess she never said

{c:Chorus}

Don’t Open The Door To Strangers

(Kilbey)

[G]Don't open the door to [Em]strangers
[G]Don't let them in, to your [C]heart
They only [D]want to take you [Em]far from me [D]
[C]Don't open the [D]door to[G]night

[G]Don't trust the man in the [Em]windows
[G]Don't let him buy all your [C]dreams
He only [D]wants to make them [Em]all his own [D]
[C]Don't open the [D]door to[G]night

{soc}
[Bm]See the angry sea, it's a sign for me
[C]There's another shore, what we waiting for
[Bm]Feel the wind is sad, all the things I had
[C]Blown away and falling around [D]me [C] [Bm] [Am]
{eoc}


Don't leave your thoughts unguarded
Don't let them float where they will
They never tell me what I want to know
Don't open the door tonight

The Blurred Crusade

Almost With You

(Kilbey)

Tabbed by Andy Perks

Andy says:

I have done the solo in tablature form - it is almost the same as the solo from the other transcription down below but there are a couple of variations. It shows the double-notes towards the end of the solo and I use a slightly different set of chords - I’ve shown the chord changes where I make them when playing it. Also, during the verse, I use a G instead of one of the Em chords.

When You Were Mine

(Kilbey)

[A]On a day like this[Bm], [G]a hundred [A]lifetimes ago [Bm] [G]
[A]You on a shore, [G]across the point
I [F#m]looked through my hands and you [F]drew me a [Esus4]line [E]
When you were [A]mine [Bm] [G]

On a world like this, a hunderd turns left to go
Deep in a room, which I've never seen
Outside it's so cold but I'm waiting for time
When you were mine

{soc}
[Bbm]Plenty of [Ab]islands bet[Bbm]ween now and [Ab]then
[Bbm]Rocks break the [Ab]boats of the [Bbm]painted face [Ab]men
And they [F#]drown, and they're [F]born
And they [F#]live once [F]again
[F#]And this all [Ab]happens
[F]When you were mine [A] [Bm] [G]
{eoc}

In a storm like this, a hundred kisses of snow
You with another so easily sleep
What's real and what's dreamt become close and entwine
When you were [B]mine [C#m] [A]

Field Of Mars

(Kilbey / Willson-Piper)

[F9]It's a long way home from the [C]Field of Mars
[F]Distant, alone, beneath the [C]platimun stars
[G]And I turn to look, but I'm [F]never any closer
[G]Only just the rain [F]makes the skin feel colder
||:[Am]All my life seems so [G]far away:||

The air is soft in the Field of Mars
Tears and loss feed the overgrown grass
And I have to leave, but I never seem to go
Only more sad clouds where autumn winds will blow
All my dreams seem so long ago

{soc}
||:[C]Oh, [F]Field of Mars :||
{eoc}

Time is past in the Field of Mars
Grief won't last in the departing cars
And I call her name, but she never, ever hears
And I call again to the cruelty of the years
Oh my love she's so far away

{c:Chorus}

An Interlude

(Kilbey / Koppes / Willson-Piper / Ploog)

The intro is fairly simple.

E --0---0---0---0-
B -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
G 2---2---1---1---

"They're [A9]going to send you [E]away" she said
[A9]Psychic angels spread on the [E]top of her head
And [A9]in the compartments [E]of my dread
The [A9]rush hour crush travels home to [E]bed

"You never seem to hear" she smiled
Statues tiptoe for a glimpse of the child
The lawns are always lush and wild
Spacious floors bejewelled and tiled

"How are you getting home" she laughed
Mermaids drowned but I clung to the raft
It's just the water in the bath
An interlude for the busy staff

Secret Corners

(Kilbey)

[C]Lying alone, [G]isn't that you
[F9]Drifting away
Is the [Am]only thing [G]left to do
[C]Such a sad place, [G]such a lost world
But [F9]nothing is sadder
Than the [Am]tears of a [G]make-believe [F]girl [G]

Who is this child, who is this man
Only two people
Who are doing all they can
Frost on the ground, the cruel winds of fate
Blow us forever
And I know there's just no escape

[Am]Run to the secret corners [E]of your room
I'll still be [G]waiting
I'll still be [F]waiting [C] [G] [F] [Am] [G] [F] [C]

Just For You

D* G* A7sus4*
D* G* A7sus4*

D*                 G*                 A7sus4*
Sometimes when the darkness loses its hold
D*         G*           A7sus4*
I tread politely in the cold
G          A       G          A
Racking my brains, Pumping my veins
G               A                  D*
And taking the evening train from view
C               G           D*    C              G              D
But you know I never wanted to, Ah, you know I did it just for you

D*          G*              A7sus4*
And it's so easy to hurt me now
D*             G*       A7sus4*
And you've forgotten anyhow
G             A          G                   A
That certain ideas, Have changed through the years
G                 A                    D*
I purchased some tears just to see me through
C               G           D*    C              G              D

One day I noticed the world at my feet
D*                    G*              A7sus4*
Next day comes and it rolls into your street
G         A      G         A
Gathering speed, Paying no heed
G            A                  D*

Oh..........just for you (repeat and fade)

NOW... some of the chords are marked thus*. That means there are two
different chords being alternated between quickly (listen to the track for
where the changes are):

D* is between D x00232 and Dsus4 x00233 (sometimes D+2 x00230 is thrown in
too!)

G* is between G 320033 and G6 320030

A7sus4* is between A7sus4 002033 and a different A7sus4 002030, and
sometimes good ol' A7 002020

A/Eb is played x01220 (and sounds pretty horrible! The Church play it with
Steve hitting an Eb on the bass as Marty (?) plays an A)

Two guitars share lead duty in the instrumental (A A/Eb etc) bridge

A Fire Burns

(Kilbey)

[E]The rusty stream of [C#m]dawn comp[A]letes
[E]The scenes where cars once [C#m]crawled these [A]streets
A [E]face against the [C#m]moving [A]sky
[B]Brings back an alien hope
Just like they [A]said to me
Keep your heart inside your [E]coat [C#m] [A]

Well there's muddy shoes outside your door
Is anybody home I ask once more
A silver-plated jet comes home
But the map leads her astray
Just like they said to me
Find your heart and lose your [E]way [B]

{soc}
[E]A fire burns inside me
[D]The snow still falls in flakes
[C#m]The reins around a horse's throat
[B]Turn into a lake
[E]And people so familiar
[D]Their words are in my mind
[C#m]A fire burns inside me
[B]Dancing cool and blind
{eoc}

Beside the wall the flowers grow
And down the sticky stems I go
Watching changing skies below
Your arms so far away
Just like they said to me
Life is worth another stay

{c:Chorus}

To Be In Your Eyes

(Kilbey)

[G]Night-time is so lonely
When you hear a sound
But it's only an empty [CM7]heart
Beating on through the night
A sad sad drum
And I'm [G]lying here listening
And the raindrops are all glistening
In my [CM7]dreams
And it seems
That the sun never comes

{soc}
And I [Am]want my sad reflection
To go [FM7]drifting through the skies
To be in your [G]eyes
{eoc}

And I'm waking to this aching
And it's breaking me in two
All the space
All the waste
All the distance between me and you
And the people with their voices
Random choices will they ever learn
To really see
Really be on fire when their spirit burns

{soc}
I want the person inside me
To be someone I'd recognise
If he was in your eyes
{eoc}

So I'm waiting, contemplating
Relocating a faded image in my thoughts
But the memories are like clouds
Try so hard
But they never can be caught
But I'm trying, yes I'm trying
But I'm only lying in the dark
So alone
On my own
No one home

{soc}
And if love was worth a fortune
Then I'd need a rise
To be in your eyes
I want these words to be the things
I hoped you'd realised
To be in your eyes
{eoc}

If any one has differences, please let me know.
I didn't spent 3 hours doing this to get it wrong... :-)

slides and bends are both written with \ and / characters.
listen to the song to work out which.

caret's indicate a harmonic.

the spaces between notes sorta says how the rythym goes, but
there is not really any separation except bars, and that
might even be dodgy.

Don’t Look Back

(Kilbey)

[E]Sometime up here[Esus4], watching a [E]cloud [Esus4]
[E]Funny how they shape your [Esus4]thoughts
Right out [E]loud [Esus4]
Some days you [A]laugh
[Am]Some days you [E]cry [Esus4]
So [G]deep in a night
It [D]leaves you stranded high and [E]dry [Esus4]

[E]Keep to yourself,[Esus4] keep it in [E]case [Esus4]
[E]Keep it when you need it for a pretty [Esus4]smile
For your [E]face [Esus4]
Walk out in the [A]sun
[Am]Walk out in the [E]rain [Esus4]
[G]Keep on walking
And [D]don't look back here [E]again [Esus4]

A Different Man

(Kilbey)

Transcribed by James Dignan

(Brian Smith put the E minor into the verse)

D  D/C#  GMaj7/B  G *

Gmaj7/B can also be called Bmsus4, played x20032

*on this intro and the chorus, the lead guitar just alternates between D
and G, but I think there's also rhythm (or just a "feel", using the bass
somehow, of a progression through D, Asus, Bm and G. See the Tab (!) below.

[A]Inside himself, He [Em]runs to look in the [G]mirror
[A]And the face that stares right back has [Em]never been any [G]clearer
[A]But look at the doubt in his eyes [Bm]He's not the one to [C]blame

D                  D/C#                    GMaj7/B
It was a different man, no he's never been here
               G                   D
You can be so close, you can be so near
                   D/C#                   GMaj7/B
It was a different man, playing different cards
              G                   D (overlaps start of verse)
You can be so soft, you can be so hard

Inside himself, He follows the wrong directions
Perfect English words all right But with the wrong inflections
But look at the dust at his feet He's not the one she loves

It was a different man, no he's never been found
You can be so up, you can be so down
It was a different man, no he's never been there
You can be halfway, you can be all there (repeat first chorus)

Instrumental bit
D   D/C#  G/B  G
G   Em    C    D
Em  F     G
G   G/F#  CMaj7/E   C

(NB:this last line is simply the intro transposed one key flat around the
chord cycle. I'm not sure of the Em in the second line, but I can't think
what else it might be)

Inside himself, He thinks that he looks the same
And the mind that thinks it all out Never noticed any change
But look at the doubt in his eyes He's not the one to blame

And here's the guitar tab for the intro etc...

Intro

Aminor//  Aminor7___let ring (x4)

Aminor_____
Tiny drops of water glistened on her black fur
Aminor_____
Taillights in earshot, headlights shine through her
Fmajor7
Legs crossed on the red surge settee
Fmajor7
Sat next to nothing as she looked right through me, and on
Aminor
Inside the car sat a sulky blonde
Aminor
And on her lap, the road went on and on
Fmajor7
As she dresses, I look to the ground
Fmajor7
Perhaps I know where the place can be found, and on

Chorus
C------------G/B-------------Aminor
Outside, the night is very soft, but where does it end?
C-----------------------------------G/B---------------------Aminor
We pile into the Buick, but you've got to have money for that

Aminor
92 people take it way too fast
Aminor
They never notice where their lines are cast, and on
Fmajor7
Legs crossed on the red surge settee
Fmajor7
Sat next to nothing, and she looked right through me, and on
Aminor
I've got a milk-white electric guitar
Aminor
Walked in the shop and I peeled off the notes, oh yeah
Fmajor7
As she dresses, I look to the ground
Fmajor7
Perhaps I know where the place can be found, and on

Fly

Corrections by Jens Berke

Em     022000
G      320003
A7sus4 x02030
Cadd9  x32030

[Em]Baby smiled like a [G]tiny child
[Em]She talks her head off, and the [G]land lies wild
[Em]Tossed and turned on a [G]teardrop sea
[Em]And all the dark clowns who are [G]following me

Chorus:
And they [Cadd9]fly, [Am7sus4] she pointed up into the [Cadd9]sky
[Am7sus4]And you can't touch them if you [Cadd9]try
[Am7sus4]And they [Cadd9]fly  [Am7sus4]

Baby left as she lost her breath
Hastens off to some unknown death
Trapped inside her painted eyes
Takes herself into a new sunrise

(Chorus)

One Day

(Kilbey)

[D]Tell me, [Em]is everything unplanned?
[G]It's all so unexpected that I [D]just can't understand
We [D]run so hard and always end up [em]in the same place
[G]"Glad that went so smoothly" well that [D]never is the case

[G]One day - [D]doubtless, cloudless, bright
[G]We'll shake away the shadows [D]of eternal night
[C]It's just the storm before the calm
[G]Like the life held in your palm - it's [Asus4]clay, one [D]day

And you stand there, with ashes blowing past
Dipping into gilt-edged love that will be made at last
And the gold you spend and the hastening end
That you throw into the sea
Coming back a hundredfold, there's no guarantee

{c:Chorus}

We'll walk and be like giants, we'll all be honest men
I go back to my blindness so that I may see again
A woman standing on a hill is gazing out to sea
Dreaming of a new age waiting there for me

I call her from a distance and she smiles into the sun
And men and gods begin their dance, for their time has begun
And holy wars extended and battlefields of pain
Washed away, forgotten in the perfect rain
Princes, kings and humble things are well-worn and content
Messengers come everywhere, envoys have been sent
(Na na na .... a palm tree nodded at me last night he said,
"Hey you look so pale")

Electric

(Kilbey)

[A]Alone, at the end of the [Amaj7]day
As I stand before the [em6]relics
Of what used to [C]be you and [G]me

You turn with the tears in your eyes
Not understanding
that you are free, free of me

Like songs, our warmth fades away
Turns into coldness
Like the words that we say, today

{soc}
[D]And as the city [F]glows, electric [D]people nobody [F]knows
Electric [D]dreams, nobody [F]knows
[em]When you touch my skin, the feeling is [A]electric
{eoc}

I hoped that our destiny sloped
Ever upwards,
Now it curves away and falls

Like rain and the windows of children
I see the future,
just sliding away, and false

{c:Chorus}

It’s No Reason

(Kilbey)

[G]Crocodile skin [bm]water, [C]city shadows [D]wait
[G]Put your head in[f#m]to your hands, the [em]ending is so [D]great
[G]Take a ride to [bm]sundown, [C]buy a ticket [D]home
Take [G]all the things I've [f#m]bought you, leave [em]all the rest a[C]lone [G]

Marble skins turn human, people fade to gray
Put your head into my hands we'll make them go away
As you're crying softly, you won't ever be disturbed
Red on pink, the sun will sink, have you even heard?

{soc}
[D]And the [em]colors take me [C]down
[D]It's no [em]reason to be [C]sad
[D]And you [em]leave without a [C]sound
[D]It's no [em]reason to be [F]glad
{eoc}

Instrumental break is Em C D

Salty tears are wasted, children lie awake
Put your head into my hands, don't let your spirit break
Black smoke from the chimneys, white smoke from the hills
Everything is moving, but we're standing still

{c:Chorus}

Celebrations fading, boats upon the waves
Put your head into my hands, trying to be brave
The carnival has packed up, the storm has left us peace
Poppies sleep undamaged, we drive into the east

Disappear?

(Kilbey)

(Lift on and off B-string 2nd fret on the A and Dmaj7 chords)

[A]Like a womb, night was all [Dmaj7/F#]around
[A]Someone, somewhere must have talked some sense
I could [Dmaj7/F#]feel it moving underground
[G]So many things I still don't under[E]stand

The [A]dream I was having took on an ugly [Dmaj7/F#]face
I don't [A]know if I was walking through heaven
It could have been [Dmaj7/F#]any place
[G]Skipping 'cross the water, wading through the [Esus4] sand [E]
A[Dmaj/F#]wake to find you gone, emptiness is where you [A]lay
I just [Dmaj7/F#]had to smile for all the things you'll never [E]hear me say

[C]Oh, I know, I could never get that [G]near
[Dmaj7/F#]What do you expect me to do, disap[A]pear? [G]

{soc}
[G]You and [C]me, [em]we're as [D]free as we can [G]be
Can't you [C]see, [em]like the [D]trees so obviously[am]... [A]
{eoc}

The message disturbs me so I throw it to the wind
And after all the hellos goodbyes etc etc
We can't start this thing again
It's like the fog you walk towards, but never seem to reach
Every morning now I hear that same old song
And though the singer is long dead, his voice goes on and on
Ugliness you have to learn, but beauty you can't teach

F#m                                          A
Awake to find you gone, a note pinned to my sleeve
F#m
It wasn't just the things you took
                             E
It was the things you had to leave
C                           G
Now it seems you were never here
DMaj7                          A
What do you expect me to do, disappear?

{c:Chorus}

Electric Lash

(Kilbey)

Additions by Jason Roberts

The [D]electric lash of [G]trees in the studio
[D]Fills my head with [G]light
[D]Only the voice of the [G]girl on the radio
Falling [A]from a [D]height

I turn to leave as if in a cameo
It doesn't feel quite right
Only one thing you ever really know
If it's day or night

{soc}
Our [G]eyes meet and I [D]love her
[G]I suspect she already [D]knows
[G]How those eyes see me so [D]very very clearly
[G]Even [A]when they're [D]closed
{eoc}

The electric lash of trees in the studio
A bite then a caress
Only the voice of the girl on the radio
Drifting from the west

I turn to leave as if in a cameo
A moon, a knot, a guess
Only one thing you ever really know
You might curse before you bless

Now I Wonder Why

(Kilbey)

In a [D]moment of triumph, I find defeat uncon[C]trolled
In the [D]second of honor, a despair sharp and [C]old
She [hm]gives me a t[C]aste, [hm]please show me some [C]etiquette
I [hm]wasn't looking for [C]you and I [F]don't want to find you [em]yet

At an uncurtained window, in a street full of rooms
Watching the gardens, and pursuing the blooms
This world is so white, they never see me anymore
But i trusted you then, and I'm trusting you still
It's just that I'm not quite sure

{soc}
[A]Now I wonder [em7]why, I [A]thought I could ever [em7]lose
But the [A]gain is hardly what I'd [em7]choose
[Bb]Now I wonder [D]why
{eoc}

It was somebody, a woman, it was a delicate crime
And I've been waiting for ages, yes I've been here all the time
There was this greed in my blood, she let me take the easy way
She helps me hide the vagabond, that was myself yesterday
And after the acting, I found that I couldn't sleep
And during my drifting, I found that I was too deep
By the virtue of faith
I knew that I could be lost
Beyond this dark place
Unprepared to pay the cost

{c:Chorus}

Dropping Names

(Kilbey)

[F#]I want to break to be [E]beautiful
[F#]Seven long nights to [E]think
A [F#]handful of words, a [E]sleeveful of birds
[F#]Casually left on the [E]sink
[B]Crimson beads, cut [A]out your needs
[B]Leave you feeling more in the [A]pink[F#]Seven long nights at a [E]pre-announced site
A [F#]head on my shoulders and I [E]feel all right

{soc}
[C#]Alter the [B]courses, [C#]stand near my [B]flames
[C#]Questionable [B]sources, [A]only dropping names
Dropping [F#]names
{eoc}

I taught her how to be hard or soft
She never really needed to learn
A trip into town, defenses are down
I never ever need to return
She holds me by the stars, says look at these scars
Feel my longing burn
Seven long days but I can't change my ways
Look over my shoulder and I say hey hey

{c:Chorus}

It Doesn’t Change

(Kilbey)

[A]Sinking silk, and [Bmsus4/A]burning gold
[C#m/A]Touch you as the [D/A]air is turning [A]cold

Another place I look for you
The heights above an almost perfect view

Seeing things just rest a while
As the tide sweeps out another mile

Inside the man, the pleasure dome
This is the world that I once called home

Strangers in their naked skin
Waiting for their sweet oblivion

Close to you, hear all you say
Even though you're continents away

The perfumed air, the taste of fear
Shrug your shoulders and they disappear

Take this gift and let it grow
Let it be all the hope you know
It doesn't change   [E]

Into My Hands

(Kilbey)

Transcribed by James Dignan

Here's one that's simple enough for even the most novice of guitarists

Gsus is played as 330003


G             Gsus  G      G               Gsus  G
I take love into my hands, journey back to winterland
G              Gsus    G     G               Gsus    G
Cut my losses, grow my hair, see some man to take me there
      C          G                C             G
As it gets so uncertain, when the girl gets too near
     C             G                C        G
It's never as good as I hoped or as bad as I feared


G                   Gsus       G       G                  Gsus     G
Some seek sleek and slithering charms, out of reach their grasping arms
    G                   Gsus      G           G            Gsus  G

For the more proficient :), there are several picking parts, notably the
intro/ending, where there are two guitars:

|------------------|------------------|
|------------------|------------------|
|---0---0---0---0--|---0---0---0---0--|
|--0---0-0-0---0-0-|--0---0-0-0---0-0-|
|-----2---3---2----|-----2---3--------|
|-3----------------|-3-----------3----|

and

|-----0-------3----|-----0------------|
|-013--310-13------|-013--310-13------|
|------------------|-------------0----|
|------------------|------------------|
|------------------|------------------|
|------------------|------------------|


Then the bridge part, (chords F C G) which has a slidey part ( an equals
sign here means slide to the second note...Frets are numbered in
hexadecimal, so A=10, B=11 etc)

|-3=A-9=A-9=A-3-|-3=5-3=5--------|
|---------------|---------5=8----|
|---------------|----------------|
|---------------|----------------|
|---------------|----------------|
|---------------|----------------|

Then back to the G, Gsus pattern for a frightening lead part (done on
12-string, so this is only approximate)

|----------03-7----|-CA8A87-ZZZ-3=F---|
|-------013---8----|----------------h-|
|-----02------9----|----------------h-|
|---02-------------|------------------|
|-23---------------|------------------|
|------------------|------------------|

ZZZ is a trill played on the 10th, 8th and 7th frets somehow, possibly with
the 2nd and 3rd strings in there too. The slide goes up from the 3rd to the
15th fret, and is followed by 5th fret harmonics on the 2nd and 3rd
strings. OK, I admit it MWP is a bloody good 12-string player! Good luck!!!

D
Badman's woman with that look in her eye
Am7add6
You stop to wonder as she passes by

Something inside you is never the same

Something outside you is always to blame

Follow her home where she lives with some friends
Am7add6
They have some good things to add to the blend

The games expanded, invaded the place

You're the only one who's forgotten his face

Chorus:

              Em7   G         D        G
You're saying no no no I must be on my way
       Em7        G                D    A7
But it really has been a pleasant night
        Em7   G                 D         G
And you go so slow hope they'll ask you to stay
    Em7          G            D
And indifference gives you a fright

The same pattern continues for the other verses:

Walking outside you come to a door
You go inside and you wonder what for
At least it's good to be out of the wind
You turn around and the clocks all begin

Just like the winter your memory thaws
Just like the ocean your memory pours
So many pieces to match or to find
So many doubts to have in one mind

It's hard to see how the tables have turned
It's hard to see how the people have learned
It's hard to watch the past drizzling past
It's hard to watch them picking the cast

And it stacks up badly that it never makes sense
You sense that sensation is who's paying the rent
And she beckons to you with her fingers and lies
She says: can't you slice the price of your paradise

The sliding lead break in the second and third verses is:

|-----------------|
|-3=>5------------|
|------2=>4-------|  repeated

Heyday

Myrrh

(The Church)

[Am]Emerald haunt in [G]overdrive
[Am]Nightmare descent into [G]Jericho city
[Am]Camel dust heralds our arrival
[Am]New Christ beneath the [G]drumkit moon
[Fmaj7]Oh Lord we are [G]threatened again
In the [Fmaj7]slipstream pull of the [G]federal men
[Fmaj7]Plummet in some [G]seamless night
Down [Fmaj7]here to earth it's [G]hopeless then

Apache gunman in the boiling crowd
Who never got to meet you last time
We're interrupted by the telephone
You didn't think they were invented then
Oh Lord we need miracles
We need more wine and gold
We need slaves and roads and personal favors
We need microphones and manifolds

{soc}
[F#m]How can you be so in[E]visible
[F#m]Give me the nerves to [E]see
[A]Privilege on [D]privilege
[F#m]An unwanted [E]discovery
{eoc}

So now we're cruising down this shuddering highway
With a dead sun shining on my back
And we talk about the way people treat us back there
Their hollow laughter, the pain in their eyes
Oh Lord I trust your intentions
But money strangles our love
Struggling like a fool with my junk and my jewels
You would have thought I'd had enough

{c:Chorus}

Tristesse

(The Church)

6th August 97 - Brian Smith

Here's my interpretation of this song.  It's a bit more complex
than the chord-based one which follows it.

There seems to be a lot of ways to play this song.  When I've seen Steve
play it live he goes for a simplified version of the following arrangment,
which sounds much like the acoustic performances he and Marty do when
sharing the stage.

Chords (strings numbered from low E to high E)

D        - 000232
D9       - 000230
G6       - 320000
Em7      - 022030
D9/F#    - 200230
A7sus4   - X02030 (try and avoid the low E, but no probs if you can't)
F#m      - 244222 (like Em, barre second fret)
F#m/A    - X04222 This one's a bit awkward to play - avoid the low E
Fmaj7    - X03210
Em/A     - X05430 Just slide up two frets from Fmaj7

"Here in this desert"...
        D G6 (repeat till chorus)
OR      D Em7 D9/F# G6

"A gunfight in Dodge City..."
F#m G F#m/A (if you can, otherwise repeat the first chord)

"All my life spent searching..."
Fmaj7 Em/A D   - For that second chord just slide up two frets from the
                 first.  Let the A string ring if, or block it if you
                 don't like the sound.

Here’s a simpler, chord-based version.

[D]Here in this [Em7]desert, be[F#m ?]neath the sun and [G]stars
Still troubled by the rumblings of a million distant cars
Please be good to me tonight, let me find my way
The air has some command in it I cannot disobey

[F#m]A gunfight in Dodge [G]City, a [D]murder in Bom[G]bay
[F#m]All these deeds and [G]worldly needs I [D]must shrug off to[G]day
[Fmaj7]All my life spent [Em7]searching for pro[D]wess
[Fmaj7]Left me lying [Em7]here with you, tris[D]tesse

I was working in an orchard that grew the strangest fruit
It wasn't Mother Nature that made those trees take root

Your children cannot hear you, they only want your loot
You hold on to their essence like a parachute
They never believed you were in distress
Now you've gone and left them with tristesse

[D]Oh, [G]waters in[A]flamed [G]
[D]Ah, [G]fires burning [A]out [G]
[D]Ah, [G]ice melting [A]down [G]
[D]Ah, [G]fires burnt [A]out [G]

[F#m]A hotel suite in a [G]rich man's town, a [D]hut in Botany [G]Bay
A [F#m]prisoner by my [G]own device, a [D]mountain in my [G]way

I'm [Fmaj7]gonna have to [Em7]alter my add[D]ress
Cause [Fmaj7]I can't stay much [Em7]longer with [D]tristesse
[Fmaj7]And they call this [Em7]carnival prog[D]ress
In[Fmaj7]vited by our [Em7]queen tonight, tris[D]tesse

Already Yesterday

(The Church)

[C]It's already [Em]yesterday, [Fmaj7]we're off the [Am]calen[G]dar
[C]I heard the [Em]sirens play [Fmaj7]just like an [Am]orche[G]stra
[C]Mechanical [Em]bird of prey [Fmaj7]sing for your [Am]empe[G]ror
[C]Last broken [Em]flash of love [Fmaj7]still in the [Am]came[G]ra

{soc}
[D]We don't [A/B]feel those locks and [G]chains
We won't [D]listen to the [G]lizard part of our [D]brains
[Em7]Giving the [A]orders
[D]Another [A/B]morning we'll be [G]gone
I start the [D]car for Ten Mile [G]Beach
And maybe [D]Avalon, [Em7]across the [A]water
{eoc}

It's already yesterday and nobody's answering
Disconncted, drift away, nobody's questioning
Head silver, feet of clay, who is surrendering
They fall in our heyday, I am remembering

{soc}
We can't feel those aches and pains
We won't listen to the voices in the city rain
Giving the orders
Another morning I'll be gone
I start the car for Violet Town
And then to Babylon, over the border
{eoc}

Columbus

(The Church)

The [Em]king had something [C]changed within him
I [Am]should have told him no
[Em]Oh Co[C]lombus, I [Am]never should have let you go
Now [Em]aching wires, [C]midnight fires
[Am]Things I could not know
[Em]Oh Co[C]lombus, I [Am]never should have let you go
[Am]You [G]don't suppose there'd
[Fmaj7]Be room in here some[D7]where for me
[Am]I [G]think I just need
[Fmaj7]Someones words to [D7]reassure me
[C]I don't blame [D]any of you, [Fmaj7]and I don't blame my[G]self

Waiting for my small reward
It's going to come somehow
Oh Colombus, I wish that you could see us now
We don't posess a single empty tear
Or furrowed browOh Colombus, I wish that you could see us now
You don't suppose there'd
Be room in here somewhere for me
I think I just need
Someone's words to reassure me
I can't change any of you, I can't change myself

The man had something strange about him
He should have let me know
Oh Columbus, I wish I'd never let you go
You don't suppose there'd
Be room in here somewhere for me
I think I just need
Someones words to reassure me
I don't blame any of you, and I don't blame myself
Colombus

Tantalized

(The Church)

Transcribed by Anders Ekberg

[A]God I've [G]been a[A]sleep so [G]long, I've been [A]away [G] [A] [G]
[A]Back from [G]software [A]limbo the [G]natives call [A]today [G] [A] [G]
I let their [A]promises [G]bind me [A] [G]
I let se[A]ductive l[G]ogic blind [A]me [G]
I em[A]braced a ma[G]chine, I went [A]through the rou[G]tine
And I [A]hid from the [G]people who were [A]trying to [G]find me

{soc}
[Am]Till the day comes when you [FM7]realize
[C]Otherwise you never [E7]care
Pan[Am]dora's box reveals a [FM7]new surprise
Can't wait to [C]see your eyes, now you've been [E7]tantalized
{eoc}

For a hundred and one voluptuous days I broke the law
The labyrinth was closing so we panicked up a door
I let their wanton flesh obsess me
I felt their dreams and drugs assess me
I was hired and fired yet never inspired
Flattering, chattering words to impress me

{soc}
All that glittered had me mesmerized
Otherwise I would have dared
Guess the nature of our enterprise
Can't stop to sympathize, how you've been tantalized
{eoc}


I turned up in some harsh doomed city on another plane
I couldn't believe the room I got or the guests I entertained
I felt the dirty streets surround me
I let the buzzing swarm confound me
I gave money to ghosts, I insulted my hosts
I could never get off the stuff that spellbound me

{c:Chorus 1 and 2}

Disenchanted

C      F       G    C             F                G
 Well look at you, hands full of money you always wanted to have

 Saying sweet life is a downright drag
  C           F         G                          Em          G

C          F         G      C             F               G
 And the scene is through, summer slipped under in this neighbourhood

 So you get drunk, make a half-second jump and experience it as the past
      Am              Em                  F
 But this is it, the closer you get, the deeper you go
      C                     G
 The tighter the net looks to me

C          F       G          C                F                G
 Do you enjoy the view, they say it makes you dizzy your first time up there
       C       F                 G
 Till you get used to breathing rarefied air
    C                 F       G                      Em               G
 Auditioning for the part of Mister Despair, well I know him personally

C          F         G        C              F                G
And this hotel's a zoo, you gotta be some creature to get a room in here
          C           F           G
You can live like a king on a throne of tears

It's a mighty long way from the innocent years, and it waits inevitably

 And I'm asking you, if you think that success is its own reward

 Now then go and see what your persistence has scored
       C         F              G
 The voice is a-calling and it can't be ignored

She's broken down, it's raining, I said I'd have a look
Uncurling human tragedy appropriately a mystery
She tells my story back to me she said I'll live this chapter till eternity

 People say to see is to believe
 Then they just believe in that they can perceive
 What they see is not the total view
 Filtered between the me and you

G                  F#m                       G
 But I'm trying so hard, just to tell you I care

                    F#m                    Em                C
 And I've wanted so long, to tear it all away, tear it all away

D(f# f# f# e f# f# e f# | f# f# g f# g f# e f#)  (notes added to D chord)
 People say well you just had to be there
 And all the time you know they've never been there
 And it makes me sad to sit and think
 All those empty souls are nearly at the brink

G                  F#m                    G
 But I'm trying so hard, just to open my eyes

                 F#m                       Em                C
 To seeing some things, that tear it all away, tear it all away

D(f# f# f# e f# f# e f# | f# f# g f# g f# e f#)  (notes added to D chord)
 People grow up and learn to drive some car
 But I did that and it doesn't get you far
 The things you want are never to be found
 And in the end it's all some running round

G                  F#m                      G
 But I'm trying so hard, just to keep to myself

                   F#m                      Em                C
 The things that I hope, will tear it all away, tear it all away

 G / /  D7 / /  G / /  Em / /  G / /  D7 / /  G / /  D7 / /  G / /

Em                      D                         C     D
 I thought you would know, I thought you would know

D(f# f# f# e f# f# e f# | f# f# g f# g f# e f#)  (notes added to D chord)
 People say they think that they are sure
 But then they turn away and don't go back no more
 What they saw was not the perfect sight
 Just their own face reflected in the night

G                  F#m                          G
 But I'm trying so hard, just to tell you it's now

                       F#m                      Em                C
 And I'm gonna keep on trying, to tear it all away, tear it all away

Here’s a short one:

Two chords between ` and ' marks means they're played in the same bar.
They're half notes, where the others are whole notes.

Starfish

Under The Milky Way

(Kilbey / Jansson)

Transcribed by Brian Smith

This is the most well-known Church song and (as luck would have it) one of
the easiest to play.

Am7sus4 is played as follows
E 0
B 3
G 0
D 2
A 0
E X

Verse: Am Am7sus4 Fmaj7 G
Chorus: G Fmaj7
Bridge/Solo: C G Am

Extra Credit:
If you have a friend with a capo, get them to put it on the fifth fret and play:
Verse: Em Em7sus4 Cmaj7 D
Chorus: D Cmaj7
Bridge/Solo: G D Em

That will really thicken the sound up.  Vary your respective rhythms for even
more effect.

North South East and West

(The Church)

Here's the tab for the opening.
E--2-2-2--3----3--0-----
B--3-3-3--3----3--3-----
G--0-0-0--0----0--0-----
D--2-2-2--2----2--2-----
A------------3----3---0-
E0----------------------

That last "A" leaves you holding an Am7sus4 (or A7sus4, whatever you want to
call it.) Play each note in a Church-y manner, then repeat once more.  Then
cue Marty going bonkers on his Rickenbacker playing a descending Em pentatonic

Verse: Em D C9
Chorus: Em9 C9 Am7sus4
Bridge: G Dm rpt.  On last pair, play G D

I don't have the intro but here's some of the chords.
Some of the words are wrong and maybe even the chord names.
There's also a few parts that i'm missing that i'll update
soon when i get around to it.

That's all i have right now. I think the next part goes G5 D/F E5 C5
but i'm not too sure. When i work it out i'll update this.

LYRICS
1.
    Too dangerous to keep
    Too feeble to let go
    And you want to bite the hand
    Shoulda stopped this long ago

Chorus
    Go now, you've been set free
    Another month or so you'll be poisoning me
    With your lovely smile
    I see you slither away with your skin and your tail
    Your flickering tounge and your rattling scales
    Like a real reptile

2.
    Had you coiled around my arm
    How could you ever know
    How I loved your diamond eyes
    But that was long ago

Chorus

Solo

3.
    And I should have believed Eve
    She said we had to blow
    She was the apple of my eye
    It wasn't long ago

Chorus

Here’s another transcription by Enrique Zamudio:

Use a delay time of about 350 milliseconds for the first part.

There are two guitars in the song. The first one goes with the delay,
while the second one has a light distortion.

The last note of the run, G(10th fret A string), sometimes does a small slide downward.

Chorus is just a G - F - Eb progression that can be played
10th fret 8th fret 6th fret on the A string
or 5th fret 3rd fret 1st fret on the D string.

Hotel Womb

(Kilbey)

This is a great song to play solo

Opening strum: D Em7 C9 rpt
Verse: D Am7sus4 C9 (X4)
Chorus: Em C9 G
Bridge: My favourite part.  Make the shape of Fmaj7 (F chord with open high E)
Then move your hand up the neck so your index finger is on the fifth fret.  This
is an open A chord.  The chords you'll play are: A C/A D9/A Bbaug4/A.  But they're
all the same chord shape, with the index finger on these frets: 5, then 8
then 10 then 6.  Get it ?

The bridge section gets repeated a few times, so start softly, then build in
volume and complexity so that by the last time your hand is a blur and the amp
is screeching !

Result of transcriptions by Jens Berke and Scott Jobson

----3---3---3------
--2---2---2---2----
-0---0---0---0-----
-------------------
-------------------

Verse:

From Scott:

verses: Dm Dm/C A#maj7 Am
choruses: Gm Am A# C

if you are playing this song by yourself (as so many of us bedroom
performers do) you might want to play the full chords as listed for the
chorus. for the pedants,  you will notice that on the recording, these
are played as simple power chords.

Dm     xx0231
Dm/C   x30231
A#maj7 x13231 or x1323x (if yr lazy like me)
Am     x02210

Brian also suggests playing Asus4 for the first two beats of the Am
chord...and it works for me, so here's the chord along with my thanks
to Brian for the corrections.

Asus4  x02230

Jens has a similar suggestion for the verse:

Dm           [xx0231]
Dm4          [xx0233]
Dsus2/A#     [x10230]
A7sus4       [x02030]
Cadd9        [x32030]

Dm        Dm4   Cadd9          Dsus2/A#
The wine in your hand is worth
        A7sus4  Cadd9
two at the bar

And so on. It sounds much better if you do some picking with these chords.

Chorus:

Gm (full chord) 355333 or G5 (power chord)  355xxx
Am (full chord) x02210 or A5 (power chord)  x022xx
A# (full chord) x13331 or A#5 (power chord) x13300

SOLO

this solo isn't too hard, just alot of work to transcribe, so just
try noodling around in the key of D minor... Marty seems to use
alot of descending runs in this solo (which also features a delay,
or echo, effect throughout).

It goes Gm A# F Gm all the way through the song:

Gm
Shook his shells, shaked his shoals

Ripple

(Kilbey / Willson-Piper / Koppes / Daugherty)

Transcribed by Kev

P=A is my fave album ever, and in my eyes the strongest Church lineup
as well.  "Ripple" was the final indication to me that The Church is too
smart for the pop audience--it's a brilliant song.  Here it is, sans all the
detail work (if you want it bad enough, you'll figure it out).  There's some
good use of half-step modulations between the verse and
chorus--enhances the eerie effect.  Also, it's a good display of how
Peter's presence enhances a song. To me, this song is like a fine wine:
rich, dark and bitter.  I encourage all bands to try this.

[Am]Tiny baby, [C]so naive
[Dm] I can't believe what [F or Fmaj9] you believe
[Am]You were [C]once so [Dm]happy here [F or Fmaj9]
It may not be Eden or summer in Greece
You may not even find the Golden Fleece
In the drag of this atmosphere

Now I don't want to bring up a delicate matter
No I'd much rather bribe or flatter you
Cause flattery gets me everywhere
But you punctured my tires, you crossed all my wires
I brand your acolytes as a pack of liars
And the fire's singing everywhere

[D#m] (Ripple...)
[F#] Buckle like a wreck in the cold green sea
[D#m]...
[F#] Like you were a ripple in my memory

I lent you some collateral to buy new clothes
It went out the window and up your nose
And that's the end of the honeymoon
Yeah we walk down the aisle for another mile
I'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles
And you can have all the money soon

(Chorus)

(solo 1) [F#m] [A] [G#m] [B]

You're so deluxe, you're so divine
You're so fifty light years ahead of your time
You're a metal, you're a ripple
You're a human sacrifice to the goddess of vice
Your hairdo is full of diamonds and lice
And you're hardly off the nipple

(Chorus)
Another little glitch in continuity
Like you were a ripple in my memory
(Various stuff with the same chords & solo 2)

NOW FOR YOU BASS PLAYERS:

Simple eighth-note feel most of the time.  Things are complicated slightly
by Kilbey's use of a Fender VI bass, but if you stick to the main notes
and ignore the open strings, it sounds fine (otherwise just crank up your
treble).  This can work on 2nd guitar, too.

Verse:
AAAAAGEG (on E string, strumming open A string too)
AAAAAGEG (same as above)
DDDDDCAC (on A string, with strummed open D)
DE(D)CD(C) (same as above, but hold the parenthetical notes rather than
play them - quarter notes)

Chorus:
D#D#D#D#D#C#D#(F)(D#)C#D#C# (again, the parenthesis means hold
that note longer)
F#...

The bass part during the verses lends a strong Am-Dm feel to them, so
you can eliminate the C and F on guitar there if you want, though not if
you want to be faithful.   Thanks to Matthew and Mick for their careful
observance of my errors.  And if you can find the CD single of this, get it,
Nightmare and Fog are great...

Paradox

(Kilbey / Willson-Piper / Koppes / Daugherty)

Transcribed by James Dignan

Am Gm  Am Gm  Am Gm  Am Gm

F         Dm         F    Dm
You are a paradox to me, a senseless maze
F       Dm     F    Dm
I run around, I'm looking for you all of my days
            Am                     Bb
The more that you want it, the more that you need it
Am              Bb
The less that it does
Am                     Bb
Run out it's rough, too much is enough
Am    Bb
And that's what it was


I cannot bear to share you, we can't be alone
You make me drift up and float, and fall like a stone
The more that I see you, the more that I miss you
The less that I care
I know I should try to kiss you goodbye, but
You're never there

(instrumental one verse)

I've got a nickname for you, I call you weakness
I get a little strength out too, or is it meekness
The more that you want it, the more that you need it
The less that it does
Run out it's rough, too much is enough
And that's what it was

You are a paradox to me, a contradiction
You're a predicament for me, and a prediction
The more that I see you, the more that I miss you
The less that I care
I know I should try to kiss you goodbye, but
You're never there
etc.

You must have heard about my little problem
Bb           F
Oh come on, you must have heard about it
Bb         F               C
It's no ordinary problem, look in my eyes there can be no doubt about it

And of course it gets worse at night, it gets late, things start to change

Soft and new, all over her shoulders, cold shadow in the glare of the glow

Factory billboards on outskirts of city

I hear a mandolin, in the springs
Bb                             F
Out the wardrobe floats the hint of a rumour
  C
Dressed in your beloved's finest things
 Bb                                F
Can you hear the voices that are constantly talking

Am I only one to succumb to their roar

Well I know, the form it is taking, it's not making sense anymore

I heard the tough guy won't answer his phone
Bb                        F                   C

So take this plastic and rent me some wheels, or maybe I'll try to fly

No reservations I'll see how it feels

And when the sun is squeezing through the blinds, you will be far away

Deep afternoon seeing the moon will have shined

Deep in your dream, I hear you say, say

Some notes about MLP:

Bb(add E) is played as a regular Bb barred on fret 1 without the barre:

xx||||
||||||
||ooo|

Also, if you want to play along with the CD you might find a problem. Some of the tracks on my "Sometime Anywhere" CD are not in perfect pitch. For MLP, I had to tune the guitar down about 1/3 of a semi-tone. You’ll see what I mean if you try and get your guitar in tune with the song. As for you piano players …​ my commiserations. :)

But for any of you wanting to do TABs or CRDs for the SA album keep in mind to make sure the song is in tune. On a couple of the songs I had to tune down about 1/2 a semitone. Other songs were in perfect tune, so I don’t know what was going on in that studio at the time. Brian Adds: When I saw The Church play this song live it was down a fourth from the recording. It looked much easier to play too - the opening chords are Fmaj7 and C. On each one lift your first finger off the C, then back on. I’m sure you get the idea!

Bridge 2 (before the start of the chorus):
I haven't worked out that, but the third and fourth chords
are these ones (any votes for a name?):

The last one of this bridge is C5:

Verse and Chorus always have these two chords:

Oh yeah
Your one and only lie
Ripped from the earth with these bare hands
You dare
Question the ritual
Despite continual
Threats of "gonna get you all"

2 bad you 3 know what it's 4
5 for this awful die
6 for the genetics
7 for the lucky pricks who went into heaven

Bridge 1:
G A Bm G

Nightmare
We ride for miles and miles
Following the howling of our prey
Out there
We load our yellow rigs
Scrambling for shelter
Dig, avoid decay

1 for the flaming sun
2 for the location
3 for the martyrs and the stars
4 for the wind and sand
5 so you understand
6 for the slips twixt the cup and the lips

Bridge 2:
G A Bm G Bm G Bm A
Fm# A F# A

1 for the cockpit blues
2 for the bands and groups
3 for the vast and molten sky
4 for the failed talks
5 for the knives and forks
6 for forbidden kicks
all the others in the sticks

Purple Pagoda added the following riff:

Right Handed: F#-Db
              A-Db

I start on the 'D' string, 4th fret with my first finger on the F# and my
third finger on the 'G' string hitting the Db. Then I move to the 7th fret
with my 2nd finger on the 'A' position and my first finger on the 6th fret
playing the Db.

 Esmerelda falls in love every Saturday

G              A                        D
 And on Sunday morning don't remember a thing

G                        A             D
 And the gringos are all saints of the latter day, that's the way

       G              A               D
And it takes a little pain out of the sting

G     Em              D
 Holy water tastes as sweet as wine

G     Em                    D
 Holy wine tastes just like blood

F#m                                 B
   She's drinking for loss, for the man on the cross

G                            A
 She says no more, the awful ache

G           A                 D
 And in her bedroom there's a mirror there

G             A               D
 Sometimes it don't reflect a thing

G             A                  D
 And from the street he sees her silhouette, and he can't forget

G         Em            D
 That her kisses are as sweet as wine

G        Em                D
 And her kisses taste like myrrh

F#m                           B
   Her love is lost, like the man on the cross

G                       A
 And no more, the awful ache


Middle: Am  F  G  E7


G          A                    D
 Esmerelda walks on down to the cemet'ry

G         A                      D
 And he's waiting for her in the shade

G                        A              D
 With the angels and the sad old trees, patiently

G        A                    D
 But she walks right past his grave

F#m                             B
 She's crying for loss, for the man on the cross

G                            A
 She says no more, the awful ache

F#m                             B
 She's crying for loss, and the man on the cross

G                            A
 She says no more, the awful ache

(The Church)

Transcriptions by Brian Smith and Stefan Horlitz

This is Brian’s version:

Verse: Em D C D
(The last D is just two beats to move back into the Em. It varies a little,
so don't always play it)
Chorus: C D Em

"All these colors": Am Am/C

After singing the last "all those colours bring me down" you start from a E5
"power chord"

0
0
9
9
7
0

You're then going to move that basic shape down the fret board. Taking the start
position as "7", it goes

7, 5, 3, 2, 5, 3, 2, 0 which corresponds to playing (roughly)
E, D, C, B, D, C, B, A

then end with an E minor, which takes you back into the verse.

And this is Stefan’s version:

In case you want to do a piper and play the full jingle jangle (that makes the
chords a bit different):

Sealine

(The Church)

Transcribed by Brian Smith

Verse: Bm D Em Fmaj7 C G Am (rpt)
Chorus: E D C Bm A G D/F# E (rpt)

Fairly straightforward, but I'm particularly impressed by the chorus' chords
(that first E is actually an E5 "power chord"first time round on the record,
with no minor OR major 3rd being played, but acoustically they play it as
E major). Look at those chords - it's a descending "reverse alphabetical order"
run of chords until the second last one. The bass appears to just play the root
note of each chord, except the second D in the chorus.

Song in Space

(The Church)

Transcribed by Brian Smith

Opening: F#m D
Rest of the Song: A D9 (change on "they SAY..."),
F#m (on "CAN'T spend..") D

(D9 = D with the high E string left open)

You can hear that even while that loooong A chord is being played, that wonderfully
ragged bass-line keeping popping down to G. Simulate that by lifting two fingers
off the A chord (I think it sounds best when the 3rd and 4th strings are let go,
and the 2nd string's C# remains held).

Stefan Horlitz adds:
Analogically, you can rev up the D9 chord by making it oscillate between D7 and D9.
Do D7 but leave out the F# on the E-string - just with index and middle & use the
ring to do the D9. just in case you haven't a second guitarist to play those
wonderfully out-of-metrum high notes.

Nothing Seeker

(The Church)

Transcribed by Stefan Horlitz

Little addition by Jens Berke

OK. This actually works on e-guitar only. this is one of those ultimatetextured
e guitar songs, and you will have to improv a little to make it work on acoustic
guitar. the main trick is to let ring and accidentally, randomly hit some
of the open strings


intro riff - something like e minor with the F played...you can randomly add
the open G, B and e for a little more chordal blubber.

e------------------------------------------------
b------------------------------------------------
g------------------------------------------------
d-----2---2-------2---2-------2---2------2------2
a-----2---2-------2---2-------2---2------2------2
E---1---1-------1---1-------0---0------0------0--


the stinging, devilish descending riff is very simple:

e--12----10--8--7----5--3--
b--12----10--8--7----5--3--
g---9-----7--5--4----2--0--
d---9-----7--5--4----2--0--
a--------------------------
E--------------------------

If you play solo, why not hit the deep E in between, to fake a bass
note, the G also works!

now for the "verses" (this song has no verse-chorus structure), i.e.
the singing bits, your best choice might be the classic power chords.
bang bang chugg chugg!! think smells like teen spirit and play
really really angry!!

Beside Yourself

Crash/Ride

(The Church)

Transcribed by Allen Rendel

intro:  Bb

Cm                      Bb
Everything is something else these days
I'm dedicated to neutrality
I am the lord of all I survey
This stuff is top quality

Every day is somewhere else this time
I'm driving in a film down a French boulevard
I'm waiting in a cafe on old South Head Road
I'm chopping up guitars with Nic Hard

Dm                                Bb
Fighting against the nods and the hopeless sods
Everything before the crash ride it out
Drumming up a little crowd, we played and bowed

Verse:

  Just like you I am a wanderer wandering, wondering
F            Em              Am
  Outrunning all my previous lives
F              Em             C
  So cleave to me just like a tiny storm
  C/B
  A raining and a thundering
F        Em                Am
  Coming out of clear blue skies

       A
In my fine linen suit and my smouldering cheroot

Well disposed to a night of good cheer
    D                         A
The candles and lamps and the losers and champs
D                     A
Horses all covered in foam

If you don't show then I just do not know

If I'll wait till the cows come home

Back With Two Beasts

Snowfaller

(The Church)

Transcribed by Stefan Horlitz

The actual "chords" of Snowfaller only come to life through the
masterful arrangement - guitar ostinato, varying bass notes, guitar
solo playing and "chords" only here and there. It's a great example
for "Sum of the parts". First, I will provide a kind of chordal
framework, so you can play it on your acoustic.

It's absolutely vital to play that last a minor chord...
it's such a nice and yearning twist

I'm doing all kinds of double-guitar imitations when I'm playing
this one, juxtaposing the stuff on the upper strings against the bass
drones, like this for the intro:

2-3-2-3-5-3-5-3
3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3
2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x
x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x   etc.

Make sure to dissolve the descending bits into jangly notes/arpeggi
(just listen to the CD)

Uninvited, Like The Clouds

The chords go along that way for the whole song:

Unified Field

(The Church)

Transcribed by Jens Berke, corrections by Brian Smith

Bm (open) x24430

Verse
G Bm D Em

I'm not sure about the Bm (open) in the chorus, but to me it sounds more
interesting:

Chorus
C D Em Bm(open)
C D Em
C D Em D
C D G

Space Needle

(The Church)

Transcribed by Brian Smith

Cm C#

"Where oblivion is beckoning"
Am Dm (or D5 or D9) (rpt)

Sometimes the Cm and Dm are played as C5 and D5, that is, the
minor 3rd is not played and you just have C and G (c5) and D
and A (D5). Do that if the Cm or Dm sounds too insistent and
out of place.

Overview

(The Church)

Transcribed by Brian Smith

A G

In the chorus you can lift the lower two fingers off the A so you
get a transition from the A major to G major

A -> "just the C# on the second string" -> G (just like the stories...)

Try different transitions between the two chords for effect, like
A9, A6 etc.

Easy

(The Church)

Transcribed by Brian Smith

D G D G A (street at night)  G F#m (in the) G (broad moonlight)

The "you don't have to be like that" where the bass puts it into
a minor feel doesn't affect the guitars, it's just the bass doing
it. So to fake it with just a guitar you'd need to play a fast

Bm A Em G...G G D <- back into main pattern

Pure Chance

(The Church)

Transcribed by Brian Smith

Amaj7 (release 2nd string (b) for effect and also the F# on the
top string is nice too)

Fmaj7 Esus4 Amaj7

"my wife was soft..."
Gm Gm/C (335333)

If you're brave you can try transitioning from the Esus4 to Amaj7
via the Bb on your A-string (1st fret) - that's the one-step shift
they do at this point, as best I can tell.

Day 5

(The Church)

Transcribed by Jens Berke

Pretty simple actually, if you just wanna strum the chords:
it's all just D, C and G.

D
  Eventually
C                             D
  We came to a chasm dark and wide
                                         C
  And drifted in silence through endless anemones
D
  In shallow dreams
C                              D
  Life was beginning to take a shape
                                    C
  Water was warm as it hastened our enemies

D  G  C
          This kind of world will start a little colony
D  G  C
          This kind of earth will eat a little energy
D  G  C
          This kind of thing needs a little secrecy

The D and C in the verse can be played a bit more interesting,
like shown below (though it's not exactly the way the guitar is
played on the album - however, it's a bit closer to the live acoustic
versions): strum the D, let it ring while descending note by note
from the E-string to the G-string. Then shortly play chord - whatever
its name is - right before the C, and then the C itself. Additionally,
you can let the C chord ring and play around on the B string.

Pangaea

(The Church)

Transcribed by Stefan Horlitz

Dust off the chitarronne again, it's Church Time!
Capo on the 7th fret, to get that mandoline-like sound. The rest is
a walk in the sun again. Your children could play it. Though anyone
who has seen Peter's and Marty's hands remembers the extraordinary
size of the gentlemen's fingers. I wonder how they can play that
stuff (or it's Tim or Steve on guitar here...but the solo sounds
ultra-martysh)...

So, grab a guitar, fix the capo on the 7th fret. Song eez een e minor,
and you really need mostly standard chords:

verse goes like this:

e minor, D6, b minor, Cmaj7

b----0----0----0----0
f#---1----0----0----1
d----2----0----0----2
A----2----0----2----3
E----0----x----2----0
B----x----3----0----x

chorus goes like this:

D major, E7/D, Cmaj7, G6add9 (no 5th)

b----3----0----0----0
f#---0----2----1----1
d----0----0----2----2
A----0----2----3----0
E----x----0----0----x
B----3----3----x----x (<-or any other variant of the D shape chord)

..........^grab this with thumb, it's the Harrison chord!!

The chords during the solo are all the same, just slightly reordered.
That's your homework, mates!

Happenstance

(The Church)

Transcribed by Stefan Horlitz

Friends, this song is strikingly easy to play. Anyone can play it!
There is a whopping 7 chords to learn, 2 of them are derivates. And
woohoo, once you mastered "Happenstance", you can also play "Disappointment"!

So, first thing we have to do is to capo our guitar at the 5th fret.
Yes, just like in "Under The Milky Way"

The tabs of the chords in order:

 d a Fmaj7 Dmaj7 g7 a7 E7

a--0---0--|--0---0--|--1---0--|--2---
e--1---0--|--0---3--|--1---0--|--4---
c--2---0--|--0---2--|--2---0--|--2---
G--2---2--|--2---3--|--0---0--|--4---
D--0---2--|--3---0--|--0---2--|--2---
A------0--|--0------|------0--|--X---


Strum every chord one bar, the little vertical bars indicate "repeat
this two times", ...and encore un fois!!

Let's have a look at what we need -
There's d minor, the key of the song, and a minor, the minor dominant.
This is what "Disappointment" is made of. Then things get interesting.
Fmaj7-->Dmaj7 - a slightly bossanovey chord progression wrapped into
that Churchy Australian romanticism...neat! and then Marty's darker
part...then to E7 and that turnaround back to d -

Lunar

(The Church)

Transcribed (partly so far) by Jens Berke

The first half of the song goes along pretty simple. Start each
chord at the high E string and go down to the low E string a little,
and do it a little bit slower than you usually strum chords:

G           Fmaj7     Em
All that it was was a fine-toothed comb

G    Fmaj7     Em
Only in on the night

etc.

The second half of the song starts with the "heavy" part which is
simpy a D minor.

Then... I'm lost, still have to figure out the "cinematic" part
and the ending...

Operetta

(The Church)

Transcribed (partly so far) by Jens Berke

Each verse goes like this (the "Bm" sounds closer to the song if you
leave the high E string open):

C               Bm
   A song about you

Am            G
   Your inner song

F#m                Em
   Are you good or evil

D                   C
   Or just right or wrong


The other parts ("Where's the boys all dressed in green...") seem to go
along a simple C, but I'm, not sure here...

The chord progression is constant throughout, and is

hand (think power chords).

The chords are:

F#          2443xx
Fminor      1331xx
C#(sus2[?]) x4664x

Just repeat those four chords throughout.
It is very easy to follow the recording.

To play along with the CD, you must CAPO at the fifth fret.
All chords are relative to the capo, although transposition
isn't too difficult on this one.

Limbo Capo Fret 5

Verse 1 (cool upstrokes on the Em)
Em                  Em
Ate up the prophets, corrupted the saints
Em                  Em
Exhausted resources, made us ashamed

Chorus
Em             C
Hollywood won't touch you with a pole
D5                      Am
Jesus doesn't love you, Lucipher does not
Am          (Em)
want your soul
Em             C
Made a mistake, no one will forgive you
D5                               Am
The servants you love to dismiss all will outlive you

Verse 2
Em                         Em
Set us against each other, thought it was clever
Em             Em
What a fiasco, well I never

Chorus

Verse 3
Em                Em
Such a good baby, such an old man
Em                         Em
Thanks for the memories, now why don't you scram

Chorus

I enjoy this song as it is recorded, but there is alot more
electronic sounds than guitar. Hearing Kilbey play it live
on guitar only convinced me that it was originally composed
on/for the guitar. The chords are all played first position.
On the D5, the bass and keyboards imply a minor tone, but I
believe the guitar simply plays the D5:

---------0--
---------3--
---------2--
---------0--
---------0--
---------x--

Also, on the E-minor in the chorus, the other instruments imply
a seventh tone, but the guitar plays E-minor only. I hope someone
can find interest in playing this song, it is classic Kilbey

The Egyptian

Transcribed by Brian Smith

Chords used:

G5        : 320033
C9+5      : 032033 - weird name, simple concept. Just move two fingers down from the G5 chord.
Eb Thingy : X65066

The C9 chord moved up by three frets - no barre.  Let the G string ring clearly and
BLOCK THAT LOW E!! Steve didn't do so at a concert and stopped the song half way
through because something sounded *really* ... ummm.... "discordant".  The low E
ringing through the chorus was the cause.

Db Thing: X43044

Same as the previous chord but down two frets.  The G is still ringing clearly and that
nasty low E should be blocked.

OK, after that lot the song is fairly simple.

Verse:

 G C9 (repeat)

Chorus:

 Eb Thingy   Db Thingy C9

The only tweak I can suggest is when you switch from G to C9 in the chorus try
and sometimes hit the 2nd fret on the G string. This adds an "A" to the chord and lets
you hint at what the bassline is doing in the recording.

English Kiss

(Kilbey)

Transcription by Noel

Here is English Kiss from Narcosis +.  It is basically a two chord song,
though there seems to be a passing G tone between the Fmaj7 and Amin.  The
guitar tracks on the album feature quite a bit of wah pedal rocking back and
forth (very tasty).  The keyboard fill in the intro can be played on the
guitar using the Harmonic Minor scale.  Something like this:

e………………………………………………………….
B………………………………………………………….
G…………………………………………………….5…..
D………………………………………5………7……….
A……………………5……7…..8……………………….
E…5……7…..8…………………………………………..

The chords are A minor

Amin
Do you remember the story
Fmaj7
Of the bloody chamber
Amin
About the mad tiger
Fmaj7
He licks the skin off the women.
Amin
I tell you Samantha
////              Fmaj7
I could wear those stripes for you.
Amin
Have you prayed, have you chanted
Fmaj7
With the symbols and incense
Amin
To both Krishna and Buddha
Fmaj7
And the Goddess of Fortune
Amin
For an Indian lover
///
To wake Kundalini
               Fmaj7
Your beautiful Yonni

But also Iscariot
Amin
Who comes to betray us
              Fmaj7
With just one English Kiss.
Amin
Deep in the autumn
Fmaj7
I lie in my bedroom
Amin
Just one more long shadow
Fmaj7
Fall into the corners
Amin
I reach for a woman
Fmaj7
Who harbors in darkness
Amin
She lands on a mountain
///
Sways for a moment
Fmaj7
Crashes in pieces all over my eyes.
Amin
All over my eyes
Chord progression remains the same throughout
And when you get tired
Of fake little evenings
Slip through your fingers
And don't keep their promise
Such a sad vision
It breaks up my daydream
Such a sad vision, breaks up my daydream

Look up that sleeve, where is the rabbit
Already secreted along with the dove
Where is the passion, already depleted
Just like the love.

Can you imagine what I can manage
With your permission, with your consent.
I know what you're thinking
Hear what you're saying, How could I ever?
I know what you like.
I think I know what you like.
I'm sure I know what you like.
You should give it attention
You should give it attention
You should give it some thought
You should give me a night
You should give me a night
I know what you like

What a fantastic song!! I love it.
The chords are always going in this scheme: em C  D  em G em
with one exception: a hm in the next to last verse

em
The day we left for January
    C
The maelstroms lashed outside/our side [0:45]
D
Tore us away from the glass world obeyed/of faith [0:50]
          em      G       em
Where the impulse engines died

We scrambled up the crow's nest
Could not believe our luck
Our terrified cries vibrated through the sky
Lightning and thunder struck

Down and down and down
Drowning in yourself
Down and down and down

The sargeant was a drunkard
The wing commander bent
We crashed one night on the other side
Just past the Duke of Kent

Passengers were a lethal lot
Hanging the loud in the nets
They dreamed and screamed as we picked up steam
In the mouth of the rivulet

The mutineers were scabby darks [2:50]
Howling for our blood
Behind her whip [2:56] up and down the ship
We hurled into the flood

The enemy ??? [3:05]
Lays here like a saw
We shudder in her wake like a damaged snake
We didn't get too far

The sea was a vast mosaic
Fallen to disrepair
The sky was aglow like the chaos below

  -- here comes the exception, just one line --
hm
As the first shots filled the air

The charge swept off our captain's leg
So they put him in a barrel of graphite
Commanding from the fray as his blood ran away
His soul fled to the light

This Asphalt Eden

When I jammed along my guitar I suddenly played a chord
that sounded familiar to me. After an hour of thinking and
jamming on I remembered it being from a live recording of
This Asphalt Eden, from which I then made this transcription.

Now feel their hands,

             Em7/A          Fmaj7/A

It continues in the same fashion and progression. The lead and
accompaniment parts are not too terribly hard to approximate.
Keep a tight right hand.

Elegantly simple, brilliant song.
The line 'stampeding stallions of foam...' seems to be a tip of the
hat to a brief scene in the old animated version of Tolkien's Lord
of the Rings, in which one of the magicians had added frothy white
horse figures to a spell of a rushing wave of water, as a personal
touch. I haven't seen that film since I was just a kid, I don't
recall too much about it......

I hope someone can use this song; I have never transcribed a song
online before, so please forgive any glaring mistakes.

You Whisper

(Willson-Piper)

Transribed by Fenton.

One of the songs that I had wanted to figure out (on guitar) more than
anything was You Whisper, off of MWP's Art Attack.  For the longest time
(2 years or so) I couldn't.  This made me less than pleased.  [Fast
forward to present.]  I've been playing around with a riff that faintly
reminded me of something I've heard before, but couldn't quite place it.
Then it struck me: You Whisper (okay, so you saw that coming--I didn't).
I threw the CD in and figured it out in about  six minutes (many of those
minutes spent figuring out that he uses a capo (:  ).  Anyway, I was very
happy.  Here it is:

           E        F#m G#m F#m (these 3 chords are eighth at the end of one bar)
To where I am now

F#m (1 bar)


In time I'll slot this active breath
My mouth is moisture
Now I'm talking listening you're speaking
Reach what you're seeking
I patched what was leaking
Now sure stampeding, stumbling
Clawing, bleeding, clawing, bleeding

To where I am now

Bridge:

A G#m F#m E
A G#m F#m Bsus4

I'm a coin that won't stop spinning
Can't tell if I'm winning
Exposed by the commitments of choosing
When winning's losing
It's so confusing
The climax to the last hot moment
Spinning, singing, turning, burning, growing, flowing
I'm spinning
I'm singing
I'm turning
I'm burning

To where I am now

Will I Start To Bleed

(Marty Willson-Piper)

1st transcription by Brian Smith.

2nd transcription by Al Fasoli.

3rd transcription by Steve Barfield.

This song will be easier to play if your hand if your fingers start each figure
in the right position, as shown below.
I will also write in the tab what "chord" your hand should be playing.
Much of this song just requires your hand ready to play a certain chord, but you
pick out a melody instead.  I'll put the chord in single quotes. e.g 'Am'

First Bar      Second Bar (C Chord)             Third Bar (D add 5)

What I haven't written out is the bridge section and the lead-in to it.  The
reason is that it is played just by playing the following chords, but one
note at a time, etc, nothing that needs explicit note-for-note transcription.

So, you've played the two verses, here comes the bridge.

(This is the end of last verse...)

A               D     D  C9   D  G  Gsus4
Will I start to bleed ?

Em       B7                Em
Magnetic field around your heart

           B7               Em
I'm sure I felt the engines start

            B7                C
But what if all the fuel runs out ?


Lyrics:
Silence floats into the room
Whispers to me out of tune
And I wonder if these deadly
Awkward moments stay
Stabbing their spikes in me
Will I start to bleed ?

Raise your eyes until they're mine
Lift yourself towards the light
Your face looks like a
Waterfall to me
If I concede, what is it gonna mean ?
Will I start to bleed ?

(Bridge as written above)

Glad I didn't stay with you
So much more for me to do
I am free like Matthieu in the
Age of reason
But somethin' is missing
Will I start to bleed ?

Here’s Al Fasoli’s version of the song:

[D]And I[Dsus4]wonder[Dsus2]if these[D2]deadly[D6]awkward[D2] moments[D]stay.
[D2]Stabbing their spikes in[D2]me. [D2]Will I[D]start to[D2]bleed[D].

Raise your eyes untill they're mine. Lift yourself towards

What is it going to mean. Will I start to bleed.

*[E-]Magnetic field[Dsus4]around your[Asus2]heart.

INTRO
Glad I didn't stay with you. So much more for me to do.

ALL PARTS ARE LIKE THE FIRST WITH THE EXCEPTION

NOTES:

This tab is from the version that appears on the Fairy Light Nights album
(I've heard a few live versions and they all seem to be slightly different).
I've worked it out on a 6 string although the version on the album is played
on a 12 string. Hopefully the sound difference between the two hasn't caused
any glaring errors.

The dizzy spell has gone. The tablet dissolved.
The ache has left its mark. A not forgotten scar.
I try the door,again it's locked.
And time stands still,on the broken clock.

BRIDGE..........

In the hallway where I stand. I see pictures on the wall.
They're all places that I've been. And I loved.
The back door and the front door are exactly the same.
The floors they are the ceiling and the walls the window pane.

Part 1: Intro solo

D|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

A/C# means that you play an A chord with the bass is C#.
The ^ sign means stretching the string up (listen to the song.)
Also the playing of the 2323 parts is faster and is actually off beat.
The backing is the same as in the verse.

Part 2: Verse

Six o'clock.. closing shops.. ..rainbows on..     pavement of a

Here we manage to play the second guitar as well !

Sleepy           town

A|----------------|4---------------|3---------------|2---------2-----|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

Then the first half of the verse is repeated twice with the exception
that the last chord leading to the next part is an F and not G/B.

Part 3: Intro to chorus

     Do you   remember walking    out the day it   rained forever
  C                G                Am               F

    You were      wondering if     I had dreams of  wedding rings, well...

E|----------------|x---------------|x---------------|x---------------|

In the second half of this section, although the chords remain the same,
the bass goes C,D,E,F - to emphesize that we play the last 4 strings of
the chords only - it makes the difference !

Part 4: Chorus - It's the same as the intro. You can play it like this:

  D2               A/C#             C2               G/B
E|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|

E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

Part 5: The REAl reason why we gathered here... THE GUITAR SOLO!
Well, sit tight, and don't try this at home! (no, try!)
I personally manage somehow to survive the first part of the solo,
but the second one - I can only write it! (even working it out was not
a bed of roses!)

O.K here we go:

      Am      G        F#m     F        Em      C        Em      A#

Now let's stretch the last two bars for the REALLY difficult part of
the guitar solo:

    Em        C            Em           A#          F
E13|1-0-------------------|------------------------|-

D--|----------------------|3---2-3-0-2---0---------|-
A--|----------------------|------------3---2-3-0-2-|-
E--|----------------------|------------------------|1

VERY DIFFICULT!!!!
Playing the chords only might be good enough!

Song Structure:

D2                   A/C#
Six o'clock, all the closing shops
           C             G/B
And the rainbows on the pavements
       D2           A/C#     C      G/B
Of a sleepy       town.

D2                  A/C#
October leaves were wept from the trees
    C                           G/B
In tears of grief and strange relief

If I held dreams of wedding rings

Well, farewell Mr. Sorrow

Tab Key:

       YbZ - bend the note at fret Y to the same pitch
	     as the note found at fret Z
	/  - slide up
	\  - slide down
	X  - mute with palm of picking hand
	U  - upstroke
	D  - downstroke
	V  - volume swell
	() - incidental note
	[] - echo note
	~  - hold note
        rake - exagerate the strumming of the chord
       (but not enough for it to be an arpeggio)

Notes:

In the intro and verses Guitar 1 uses a volume pedal to swell all the notes.

There are alot of 'noise' effects in the intro and background of the verses. The same noise track is used for both verses. If you want to recreate this,its going to be down to your own experimentation - as results will depend on what equipment you own.

In choruses 1, 2 and 4 Guitar 1 plays notes based on E, A and Dsus2 chord shapes. This part can be heard clearest in the left hand side stereo channel. Guitar 2 plays the powerchords, sounding clearest in the right hand side stereo channel. Chorus 3 differs in that it uses diads, as in the 'Stratospheric Preaching' section.

The 'Stratospheric Preaching' section uses diads for the first 8 bars. The last 8-bars are similar to a standard chorus.

In Guitar solo 1, the right hand stereo channel has the clean guitar. In the left hand channel the solo has delay/echo added. The backing for the solo is most prominant in the left hand channel - It can be tricky to pick out as it blends in with the delayed solo guitar signal. The backing track played by Guitar 1 is based around a 3-octave pattern, using the root note of the implied backing chord. For the last 4-bars Guitar 2 is present.

Guitar solo 2 is difficult to hear, as Guitar 3 is low in the mix. This solo is based on the E-minor pentatonic scale. The backing for the solo is similar to a standard chorus.

Notes:

Part 1:

Harmonically, for the first three bars, everything is quite ok, but bar 4 seems somewhat strange since none of the notes picked by guitar are part of the C-Major chord, although they all fit into C-Major scale and into G-Major scale (song is in G-major). Hmm, seems strange, but works somehow…​

If you like to play along on your own (without keyboard or CD/MC/LP running in background), here’s what I used for part 1 when I did some acoustic gigs or when I play on my own :

  G
E|------5-----|------5-----|------5-----|------5-----|
B|---3-----3--|--03-0--03-0|---3-----3--|---3-0--03--|
G|--4--4--4--4|------------|--4--4--4--3|--0---------|
D|-5----------|-2----------|-4----------|-2----------|
A|------------|------------|2-----------|3-----------|
E|3-----------|0-----------|------------|------------|

Part 2:

It’s not noted here how the chords are strummed for guitar 2, since this would be too complicated. Just listen to the record and try to catch up with MWP, which isn’t that easy at first (at least it wasn’t for me, especially in verses). It’s a good right hand training…​

If you play on your own without a second guitarist (and which one of us has one at hand if he needs him/her), just use the part of guitar 2, add the introduction notes for G-Chord of guitar 2 and strum all 6 string at the beginning of a bar (the missing frets of muted strings should be quite clear…​)

Part 3:

Sorry if the names of the different D-chords aren’t correct…​ my musical-theory knowledge got stuck in a traffic jam and couldn’t drop by when I was doing this transcription. Noting the strumming would have been to complicated here, as for Part 2.

Part 4:

Noting the strumming would have been to complicated here, as for Parts 2 and 3 Note that these are neither minor nor major chords, so the chord names noted above aren’t correct. Nevertheless, concerning the harmonic of the song, they are major chords are the right choice.

The nice thing here is that we can actually play both the lead and the
backing chords at the same time - this really sounds genuine!
Once in every chord shift, the second bit is a single note and the rest
are chords, which gives the mixed feeling.

Part 2: Verse

The only difference between the 2 halves of the verse is
the insertion of the second guitar on the Em. I know -
it's easier typed than played! But even if you get somehow
close to it then it's probably enough .

Part 3: Chorus - exactly like the second half of the intro!

Part 4: Middle section

Simply playing the following sequence of chords 4 times :

  Em      G        F#      F
E|0-------3-------|2-------1-------|
B|0-------3-------|2-------1-------|
G|0-------4-------|3-------2-------|
D|2-------5-------|4-------3-------|
A|2-------5-------|4-------3-------|
E|0-------3-------|2-------1-------|

The guitar solo is also based on the intro/chorus chords, and since
it is somewhat blurred I can't think of any special notes for it.

Basic Song Chords:

Am     C     G        F
INTRO
Am     C    G        F

Em               C
Closed, like the church doors
Em                                   C
When you need a little Jesus, ooh outside his business hours you know
A     D               D#
Where were you when I needed you to
Am    C  G                          F
Hold me, give a little beat of your heart to me you've got to
Am    C  G            F
Hold me, the rythm of life to me, you've got to
Am            C            G                          F
(hold on now, hold on now) give a little beat of your heart to me
Am            C            G             F

Song structure:

Intro: (2 times Part 1, beginning at 00:15 of track on CD)

1.Verse: (4x Part 1)
Em7    D         C                D    Em7
Do you feel so small, on a sunday afternoon
         D        C              D     Em7
In your loveless house, full of empty rooms
         D       C           D     Em7
Once a place of life, once upon a time
            D     C                 D
Flames are dying out, while ghosts move in

1. Verse (3x Part 2)
Am  D                 Am      D              Am
    Crossing on the stair, asleep in empty chairs
    D
So tell me are you

Chorus: (2x Part 1)
Em7     D   C   D
Lonely         Are you
Em7     D   C   D
Lonely


2. Verse (same as first verse, 4x 1 Part, 3x 2. Part)

Chorus (2x Part 1, C is played instead of last D for introduction of middle part)


Middle part: (3x Part 3)
       F                 C               Dm                 A#
while love lives, while suns set, while snowmoons rise in november skies
       F                C               Dm                 A#
while ties bind, while souls cry, while oceans ride in an endless tide
       F                  C                Dm                      A#         Em7 (first chord of chorus)
while love grows, while blood flows, while truth is real you need never feel alone


Chorus (2x Part 1)

3. Verse (3x Part 2)

Repeat Chorus (4x Part 1)

Notes:

This song is surprisingly simple although it kicks you right between the eyes when you first hear it. Almost only simple major and minor chords are used, except one minor seven, which, in my opinion, gives the song what is so special about it (in combination with the vast use of strings, the incredible melody-line and the arrangement, which begins very calm and ends in a explosion of sounds).

The first part is used for verses as well as chorus, which also includes some piano/keyboard. The second part is the one between the verses and chorus and uses almost the same picking scheme as the first part, only the chords differ.

Since the chords of part 3 are not played by guitar (strings are used here), I tried to figure out the correct chords and added a guitar-picking of my own, which I hope is somewhat ok. I also noted what I think the distorted guitar plays during this part (This is somewhat hard to figure out since it is not clear which part is strings and which is guitar…​)

Ride on the storm I made
I glide on the ashes of the sky
My blue raincoat makes me say "No today"
Hey, when does weather ever change?

Chorus:

Say things go my way
Some finer day (some finer day)
I'll play your sunshiny girl

Verse:
Ride the mercury with me
See how unpredictable it feels
Red-bus shelter where we fell to the ground
Found out that weather never changed

Chorus:
Some finer day (some finer day)
Say things go my way
Some finer day (some finer day)
I'll be your sunshiny girl

Bridge:
And brighten up my world
With sunflowers and book I have burned
And see what you want me to see
I'll be what you want me to be

Say things go my way
Some finer day (some finer day)
Outshine the Sun

Diviner

(Kilbey/Thayer)

Transribed by Jonathan Cridford.

Just the basic chords for "Diviner" - the keyboard notes are easy; they pedal
between the D and G strings. During the chorus, an electric six string plays arpeggiated
versions of the chords below.

This is the chorus/main keyboard riff, transcribed for guitar: Live, I use a Boss CE-5 chorus
with a Mooer Analogue Echo pedal to really draw out the sound of each note.

to bar the first fret of the E and B strings. It is essentially an F major chord with the G
string A note removed.

Silvermine

(Kilbey)

Transcribed by Fenton.

(my apologies- it's been a while since I've listened to this much, so I
don't know very many of the words offhand)

The chords for the verse are:  C Am Em G
The chorus is:

F           C
I led him down to it,

G           D
can't get around to it,

F           C           G
I led him down to it, too.

F           C
I let him loose in it,

G           D
can't get used to it,

F           C           G
I let him loose in it, too.

As always, readers are encouraged to make corrections/improvements to the

Refused On Temple St

(Kilbey/Cain)

Transcribed by Pierpaolo Vezzaro, with a few corrections by Jens Berke.

Pierpaolo writes: There is a video on Youtube of a guy playin a great version
of this, he's been greeted by Mr.SK in person!! He's using as capo; my version
is pretty different, I use open positions on a 12 stringer, and I keep a droning
F# on the high e string during the main chord progression by using a E-add9
instead of the regular Em. The F# drone is just dropped during the bridge, this
adds a cool emphasis on it IMHO.

Chorus: G  Bm D  F#m

Civil War Lament

(Kilbey / McLennan)

Transcribed by Jens Berke.

Play with capo at the 3rd fret.
The chords are named as if they were played without capo.
The song has two different times:
* 4/4 in the chorus
* 3/4 in the verse, but with the one bar after the Gadd6-chord played 4/4 again

C      x32010
F/D    xx0565
Gadd6  320030
Fmaj7  x33210
Am     x02210

C                    F/D  C           F/D  C
They packed us up in bo-  xes, wooden bo-  xes
    Gadd6     C
And sent us home
               F/D   C             F/D   C
Underneath the wil-  low, near the ri-   ver
   Gadd6  C
By my headstone

If you do some picking like  this, you get
quite close to how it is played:

 C         F/D    C          F/D   C       Gdd6     C   (do some picking stuff)
|0---------5-----|0----------5----|0---------------|0---------------|
|---1------------|---1------------|---1-----3------|----------------|
|--0-------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|----------------|
|-2--------0-----|-2---------0----|-2--------------|----------------|
|3---------------|3---------------|3---------------|----------------|
|----------------|----------------|---------3------|3---------------|

Chorus:

Am             Fmaj7       C
   And all you do is carry on

play the "carry on"-part like this:

 C                Am
|0---------------|0---------------|
|1----0-1 3 1 ---|1---------------|
|0---------------|2---------------|

..on..             ...when all you do

It's snowing now it's winter, river's frozen
And still you come
I can almost see you, and touch you
My pretty one

When all you do is carry on
Providence

(Kilbey / McLennan)

Transcribed by Jens Berke.

When Steve plays this song live it is a bit different than
the original song on the Jack Frost album. Here are the chords
for the album version:

It's just two groups of chords, changed quickly - meaning that
you only have to pull one finger on and off one string:

D5         xx0235
Dsus4      xx0233

Em9/A      x02032
Em7/A      x02030

   D-chords        Em-chords
   Remember when I told you

   D-chords        Em-chords
   You were pretty lost

On Steve's Acoustic & Intimate, there are a few more chords, and Steve
plays the D-chords in the verse a bit different:

Dsus2  xx0230  (instead of D5)
Em7/D  xx0030  (instead of Dsus4)

Steve plays the end of the chorus sometimes like this:

Em7/G      3x0030
Em7/F#     2x0030
Em7        02x030

  Dsus2..           Em7/G
  All I have, all I need

        Em7/F#   Em7
  All I got is   providence

Verse:D D7+6/A G D (rpt)

D7+6/A is actually very simple.  Play A minor but leave the fourth string (D)
open. Avoid the low E string.

The four bar bit at the end with "High as a kite/try as I might..." is D C

FAQ

Which status do the tabs and chords have?

Many of the songs are just transcribed as a series of chords. This is definitely an oversimplification of the song and is only intended to be a rough guide; something to get you started. Some of the songs are incomplete; parts with missing chords will be marked.

What about the lyrics?

All lyrics mentioned here have not been checked and might be flawed. They are only intended to give you an imagination of how to play along the songs and are often incomplete. Songs with a simple chords progression will often not have any lyrics. For a good collection of lyrics go to Mike Fulmer’s lyric’s page.

How can I contribute?

I’ve got the impression that quite a lot of fans of The Church play guitar in some way and want to play along their songs. So if you have worked out a song or have suggestions don’t hesitate and email me. If there are discussions about the right chords in a song I’ll try to integrate that into the song’s section.
