Will I Start To Bleed

(Marty Willson-Piper)

1st transcription taken from Shadow Cabinet, transcribed 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)
----2-3-----------------0--------------------------5---(little finger)---------
------3-----------------1--------------------------3---(middle finger)---------

Here's the actual tab.

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 ?

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.

[D]In the distance there's a hill. [Dsus2]There's a house upon the hill.
[D]On this side it's dark. [Dsus2]On the other side is green.
[D]I bite my nails,[Dsus2]I touch my face[Dsus4,G/D].
[D]How long before,[Dsus2]I reach that place[Dsus4,G/D].

The sky is pressing down. And it tears me from my sleep.
I fall onto the ground. And the goarse rips at my skin.
I scratch my eyes and open wide.
How long before,the other side.

[E]Even though you are my[F]friend. [G]This is the[F]end,[G]this is the[F]end.
[E]Even though you cannot[F]see. [G]It's up to[F]you,[G]it's not up to[F]me.

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.

BRIDGE...........
