Just Want to See

Michael Timmins


[E] [D] [C] [E] [D] [C] [E] [D] [C] [E] [D] [C]

[E] I don't want to be no patch on no [D] quilt
(I [D] just want to [C] see...)
[E] Tear-stained stitching linking memories to [D] guilt
(I [D] just want to [C] see...)
[E] I don't want to be no hair on no wall
(I [D] just want to [C] see...)
[E] Blood-stained note saying fuck you all
(I [D] just want to [C] see what kills [E] me) [D] [C]

[D] Tommy, are you ready we [G] better head to town
[Am7] J.D.'s box is waiting to be [Am] lowered down
and you [Dm] know how he [G] hates to be kept waiting [Am] 'round [G]

[E] I don't want to be no chalk line [D] drawing
(I [D] just want to [C] see...)
[E] Toe-tagged question mark, until identi- [D] fying
(I [D] just want to [C] see...)
[E] I don't want to fuse with no economy seat
(I [D] just want to [C] see...)
[E] Fuel some fireball at 30,000 feet
(I [D] just want to [C] see what kills [E] me) [D] [C]

[D] Tommy, did you catch his face
[Am7] before they closed the lid?
I [Am7] swear I saw him wink once and [Am] flash me that old grin.
Oh, you [Dm] know, that would [G] be just like [Am] him. [G]

[E] I don't want to face no hollow-eyed [D] ending
(I [D] just want to [C] see...)
[E] Loved ones buried, empty days of waiting
(I [D] just want to [C] see what kills [E] me) [D] [C]

[D] Tommy, darling, come to bed
[G] we'll try and sleep away this sadness.
[Am7] These memories, too, are bound to die
[Am] so our dreams will have to serve us.
[Dm] Tomorrow may be the [G] day that our love [Am] betrays us. [G]

Marking where the chord changes occur is a bit of a problem, since there are two vocal tracks for example: the [D] on "quilt" and the following "just" mean that the vocals overlap, not that you should play two bars of [D]. The chords for the chorus are real sketchy.
