           THIS IS A FIRE DOOR NEVER LEAVE OPEN – The Weakerthans
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard
Capo 5th fret

Intro: 

Cmaj9 / C (repeat 16 times) 
F         (repeat 16 times)

Switch between Cmaj9 and C by hammering the 2nd fret on the 4th string
Cmaj9  X3001X
C      X3201X

Verse 1:

C          Em               F
Headlights race towards the corner of the dining room
C      Em         F
Half illuminate a face before they disappear
C              Em             F
You breathe in forty years of failing to describe a feeling
C             Em                F                                 G
I breathe out smoke against the window, trace the letters in your name
G                     F
Our letters sound the same full of all our changing
G                    F                              Cmaj9
That isn't change at all, all straight lines circle sometime

{repeat intro chords}


Verse 2:

C        Em                  F 
You said somewhere there's a box full of replacement parts to
C       Em               F
All the tenderness we've broken or let rust away
C         Em          F
Somewhere sympathy is more than just a way of leaving
C         Em               F                                G
Somewhere someone says I'm sorry, someone's making plans to stay
G                F                        
So tell me it's okay, tell me anything or
G                 F
Show me there's a pull unassailable 


Chorus:

          C                                     
That will lead you there from the dark alone
     F
To benevolence that you've never known 
       Am                 Em               F
Or you knew when you were four and can't remember
        C
Where a small knife tears out those sloppy seams
        F
And the silence knows what you silence means
         Am           Em               F                                 Cmaj9
And your metaphors as mixed as you can make them, are linked like days together

{repeat intro chords}

C  Em  F


Pre-chorus:

G                      F
I still hear trains at night, when the wind is right I
G             F
Remember everything, lick and thread this string 


Chorus:

          C
That will never mend you or tailor more 
       F
Than a memory of a kitchen floor
       Am             Em               F
or the fire door that we kept propping open
      C
And I love this place, the enormous sky
        F
And the faces, hands that I'm haunted by
   Am                        F                                   Cmaj9
So why can't I forgive these buildings, these frameworks labeled home

{repeat intro chords}


Outro:

C          Em               F
Headlights race towards the corner of the dining room
C      Em         F
Half illuminate a face before they disappear
