                Islands – The Xx
I transcribed one of the chords notes i'd seen so that it could be played easier on a 
capo on the 4th fret

Also if you play along with song and mute the string is the spots marked with an * you 
can get the stop-start effect that is prominent in the song
Capo 4

[Intro]
  Em  D  C

  Am  G  C

  Em  G  D  C

  Am  C


[Verse 1]
                   Em      D   C
  I don't have to leave anymore
       Am    G         C *
  What I have is right here
                        Em   G   D   C
  Spend my nights and days before
               Am                  C *
  Searching the world for what's right here
                Em    D   C
  Underneath and unexplored
              Am    G         C *
  Islands and cities I have looked
  Em   G   D   C
  Here, I saw
      Am                  C
  Something I couldn't over look

[Chorus]
       C
  I am yours now
                  Em
  So now I don't ever have to leave
             G
  I've been found out
                Am     C
  So now I'll never explore

[Verse 2]

                     Em  G
  See what I've done
     Am
  That bridge is on fire
                      C *     Em  D
  Back to where I've been
     C
  I'm froze by desire
    *
  No need to leave
                     Em  G
  Where would I be
   Am
  If this were to go under
                      *   Em  D
  That's a risk I'd take
    C
  I'm froze by desire

  As if a choice I'd make


[Chorus]
       C
  I am yours now
                  Em
  So now I don't ever have to leave
             G
  I've been found out
                Am     C
  So now I'll never explore


       C
  I am yours now
                  Em
  So now I don't ever have to leave
             G
  I've been found out
                Am     C
  So now I'll never explore

[Outro]
  C  Em  C  Em
  Am  C  Am  C

  C  Em  G  Am  C
