The Shins – Simple Song
Intro: D  A

D A D A D
Well, this is just a simple song
A D A D
To say what you done
A D A D
I told you 'bout all those fears
A D
And away they did run
D A G A G A G
You sure must be strong
A G A G D
And you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

When I was just nine years old
I swear that I dreamt
Your face on a football field
And a kiss that I kept
Under my vest
Apart from everything
But the heart in my chest

Chorus:
Bm D A G
I know that things can really get rough
A G A
When you go it alone
Bm D A G
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough
G A G A
To play like a stone
Bm D A G A G A G
Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical
G A G A D
As this little home

My life in an upturned boat
Marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood
And you gave me a lift
Girl, what a gift
When you tell me with your tongue
And your breath goes in my lungs
And we float over the rift

I know that things can really get rough
When you go it alone
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough
To play like a stone
Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical
As this little home

Break: Em Bm Em D Em Bm G

D A D A D
Well, this would be a simple song
To say what you done
I told you 'bout all those fears
And away they did run
D A G A G
You sure must be strong
G G A D
And you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

Break: D A D A

Chorus:
Bm D G
Remember walking a mile to your house
G A G G Bm
Aglow in the dark
I made a fumbling play for your heart
And the act struck a spark
You wore a charm on the chain that I stole
Especial for you
Love's such a delicate thing that we do
With nothing to prove
Which I never knew
