About a year ago I went to a Bettie Serveert concert in Amsterdam, Holland.
When the concert was over, I found this paper on stage. It said 'Paint this
day' and it had some chords on it.
Bettie Serveert just released their new album, 'Lamprey', and it's f**king
brilliant. But there's no song called Paint this day on it.
After listening the album a few times, I found out the song on the paper I
foudn was Keepsake, the first song on the album. Since the paper originally
belonged to Peter Visser, the guitarist of Bettie Serveert, I think my
source is quite accurate.
Here's what the paper sais:

Intro: Am G F

C G Am D F
Am G F - C G Am D F

Chorus: Am C F C
        Am G F      - Paint this day

Intro: Am G F

C G Am D F

Chorus: Am C F C
        Am G F

G F C
G F C D F  (2x)

End



contained the chords of Keepsake, the first song on the album Lamprey by Bettie
Serveert. As this album is, according to Joop Schmit and me too, f**king
brilliant I decided to find out the lyrics and put these two things together.
It is very hard though to find out lyrics to Bettie Serveert songs, but I think
I fairly succeeded. A few things are missing, but hey: nobody's perfect.
I hope I got everything right.
Many thanks tot Joop Schmit and of course Peter Visser, the guitarist of Bettie
Serveert. I wish everybody lots of fun playing it.


		Keepsake
		by Bettie Serveert


Am
Wrapped up in blue
                  F
Painted by me and you
                  Am
Some thought it's changed by the truth
   G                F
We somehow keep smiling through
                  C
It's all we got instead
             G        Am
It sometimes feels so near
           D                     F
And then I reach out and it just disappears


Intro: Am G F (2x)


Am         G            F
Was it something that I said
F              Am
I feel so many moods
Am            G         F
Written all across your head
                       C
They lie there two and two
             G        Am
It sometimes feels so near
       D                     F
then I reach out and it just disappears

Intro

Am      G                F
I could smell the fallen rain
                     Am
I know that's in the park
Am          G                  F
The kind of things you can't explain
                    C
I feel them in your heart
             G        Am
It sometimes seems so near
           D                     F
and then I reach out and it just disappears

Chorus:
Am         C
Paint this day
F                      C
Let's keep this one forever
Am           G         F
Wrap it up inside your heart

Am         C
Paint this day
F                    C
For worse if not for better
Am          G          F
Save it up 'till............ (?)

       G            F                C
'cause that's why I sometimes stay awake
G         F            C             D
Pondering endlessly in reach of understance
         F
Just for keepsake

Instr.: (?)

Intro

C            G        Am
It sometimes seems so clear
           D                     F
and then I reach out and it just disappears

Chorus
