                            HOW I REMEMBER (ACOUSTIC)
                           As recorded by David Bazan
                      (From the 2007 EP FEWER MOVING PARTS)

Words and Music by David Bazan

---
I transcribed this from the acoustic version of the song with the goal of being able to
it with a single guitar. Even in the acoustic version, there are actually two playing,
please keep that in mind should you find any discrepancies. The majority of this song 
to be played with downstrokes only.

Also, note at the end an alternative way to finger the introduction (which is quite a
harder but may sound better - I play it the first way).

I go out in public now
More than you might think,
But only after several drinks.
That's how I remember.

Then if I see any girl
I've ever met before
I run like hell for the door.
That's how I remember.

And interpretations.
Then it plays them back
As gospel fact.

With one eye open you can
focus like a camera on
Whomever you are capturing.

Without exception I prefer it
As a way to document
The objects of my interest.

Red and yellow, black and white
Are precious in his sight.
But who he roots for in a fight,
That's how I remember.

So everytime I find a girl
Beaten, gagged and bound
I let her go and write it down.
