The Summer of Discontent

Lyrics by Michael Timmins
Music by Michael Timmins, Greg Clarke and Brodie Lodge

[Em] Another note afloat [C] upon this paper [D] sea.
[Am] Explain to me
how [Em] this can be.

Another face erased [C] from this tidal [D] pool.
[Am] Found one day
then [Em] swept away.

[C] I will carry [Em] you my love.
[C] If you can carry [Em] me
through this [C] summer [Em] of [C] our discontent. [NC] [Em]

Another day away [C] from clutching [D] hands.
[Am] Explain to me
how [Em] this can be.

Another stroke of evil [C] pen.
[D] Blind as sleep,
[Am] deaf as death
to the [Em] tears you weep.

[C] I will carry [Em] you my love.
[C] If you can carry [Em] me
through this [C] summer [Em] of [C] our discontent. [NC] [Em]

solo on verse

[Em] Another falling wave
[C] upon this crumbling [D] beach.
How [Am] many more
[Em] until we meet?

[C] I will carry [Em] you my love.
[C] If you can carry [Em] me

[C] I will carry [Em] you my love.
[C] If you can carry [Em] me
through this [C] summer [Em] of [C] our discontent. [NC] [Em]

Tabbed by kkmccool: Capo on the 3rd fret.
All [D] chords have an added A (4th string 7th fret)

bbkim's note: to play without a capo try replacing the chords above with these:

Em = Gm (3-5-5-3-3-3)
C  = Eb (6-6-8-8-8-6)
D  = F  (8-8-10-10-8-8)
Am = Cm (3-3-5-5-4-3)


Also, Mike's playing a lot of bass notes in this song, he usually plays on the bottom strings, but chose the top ones for this.
