Perfect Sonnet Tabs

(ver. 1)
Bright Eyes

Intro: C is strummed lots of times. Just listen.
Verse: "Latly i've been wishing i had one desire"
Ive seen alot of tabs for this song, and they all think either the chord has the 3 on the high e or just not at all,
use your pinky and hammer on at the end of it. 

This is a pretty ackward chord change but its right.
On another note, there is another guitar playing the same chords, but playing them as arpeggios, you can do that by 
yourself, or mix it up, or get another guitar player :D


Song Structure:

Lately i've been wishing i had one desire
Something that would make me never want another
Something that would make it so that nothing matters
All would be clear then, but i
Guess i'll have to settle for a few brief momments and
Watch it all dissolve into a single second
Try to write it down into a perfect sonnet
or one foolish line.
Cuz thats all that you'll get so you'll have to accect
you are here, then you're gone
But i believe that lovers should be tied together
And thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather 
And left there to drown, in their innocence but
As for me im coming to the final chapter
I read all the pages and there is still no answer
Only all that was before i know must soon come after
That is the only way it can be
So i stand in the sun
And i breathe with my lungs
Trying to spare me the weight of the truth saying
Everything you have ever seen was just a mirror
And you've spent your whole life sweating in an endless fever
And now you are laying in a bathtub full of freezing water
Wishing you were a ghost
But once you knew a girl and younamed her lover
And danced with her in kitchens through the greenest summer
But autumn came, she disappeared
You can't remember where she said she was going to
But you know that she is gone because she left you a song
That you don't want to sing
Singing i believe that lovers should be chained together
And thrown into a fire with there songs and letters
And left there to burn, left there to burn in their arrogance
But as for me i'm coming to my final failure
I've killed myself with changes trying to make it better
But i still ended up becoming something other than
What i planned to be, alright.
Now i believe that lovers should be draped in flowers 
And layed entwined together in a bed of clovers
And left there to sleep, left there to dream of their happiness.
