Arnika - Sufjan Stevens - Chords

This song is hauntingly good. I loved this song even before I dove deeper into the meaning. Incredibly sad, but it has stuck with me even if I don't feel the same way the author did when writing it.

There are no chords on the internet for it so I tabbed it out. Here you go internet Sufjan fans. At the bottom is a jpg for formatting assurance. It also has helpful tips like key and playing with a Capo:



Arnika
Surfjan Stevens


C            Dm     Bb                  F                     C                      Bb
Arnika might take out the throes that I threw in my head
Bruno, your wife shakes her bedclothes as she makes up the bed

I’m tired of life; I’m tired of waiting for someone
I’m tired of prices; I’m tired of waiting for something

C             Dm               Bb       F          F/E         Eb(?)      G
Oo- ah’s

C             Dm       Bb                     F                        C                         Bb
I have a right to know what’s in store; to know what should be said
Could I have it all, could I have you for a night in the warmth of your bed?

I’m tired of life; I’m tired of waiting for someone
I’m tired of prices; I’m tired of waiting for something
I’m tired of life; I’m tired of life, \
I’m tired of life; I’m tired of life,   ] – (I’m going….)
I’m tired of life; I’m tired of life, /

F                               Bb    Ab     Db     Cm                  Bbm             Am
Oh be patient with me; for the night weighs on my chest with a terrible storm
Though we may disagree on how things should be done on how crisis is born

F                            Bb     Ab     Db     Cm        Bbm                   Am
Don’t consider it done, wait until Leviathan lovingly creeps in your sill
            Gm                                          Dm                               Bb
For he waits in the dark, brooding magically; mustering paperback feelings

F                   Bb          Ab       Db          Cm      Bbm           Am
No I’m not afraid of death or strife or injury, accidents, they are my friends…
