  Song: Kissing The Lipless

Note 1: If you don't like these high barre chords you can stick a capo at the 1st fret
and play F, C, Bb, Dm and D#.  It won't match the CD but would sound fine as an
unlugged version.  (In this case F would be F: 1 1 3 2 1 1)  Enjoy!

Note 2: The first chord isn't quite F#, but I don't know the real name for it.

chords:
F# : x 9 9 11 11 x
C# : 9 11 11 10 9 9
B  : 7 9 9 8 7 7
D#m: x 6 8 8 7 6
E  : x 7 9 9 9 7

F#   C# (x2)

F#           C#
Called to see 
           F#           C#
if your back was still aligned 
               F#              C#       
and your sheets were growing grass 
               B                       C#
all on the corners of your bed

      F#                   C#
But you've got too much to wear 
             F#                 C#                            F#
on your sleeves it has too much to do with me
       C#                      B                 C#
and secretly I want to bury in the yard
     D#m                     E               F#              C#  F#  C#  F#  C#  B  C#
the grey remains of a friendship scarred

You told us of your new life there
you got someone comin' around
gluing tinsel to your crown
he's got you talking pretty loud
you berate remember your ailing heart and your criminal eyes
you say you're still in love
if it's true what can be done
it's hard to leave all those moments behind

(verse chords over solo)

(repeat first verse)

F#    C# (x2)

       F#               C#          B                    C#
You tested your metal of doe's skin and petals
         F#              C#              B                  C#               
while kissing the lipless who bleed all the sweetness awaaay...

|  D#m   E   B   C#  :| (repeat)
