G C Am C D

G you stand now, Cholding yourself a Amlittle of the moon is Ccoming in the Droom. G you stand very stiCll like Cyou were in the Darms of everyEmone you ever Dwanted. C Am i was watching you Gwell.

G

G i won't stop you; C i won't speak. the Gwater on your cheek is the Conly thing smooth and G i'm ashamed that Ci'm ashamed of you Cstanding in my Droom, lets more Emwater overDtake you C and i was watching you,Am watching you Gwell.

G

Interlude/Solo ...

| G | C | 4x

C why Dwon't you leave me Emquicker D C why won't you leave me? Am

G G

G i'm ashamed that Ci'm ashamed of you for Gstanding in my room, lets more Cwater overtake you G i won't stop you C and i won'tG speak. C C why Dwon't you leave me Emquicker? D C Am why won't you Gleave me... G Now here comes the tab which demonstrates the way I strum it. It is for sure not exactly the way The National play it, but I think it comes pretty close to the feeling of the song. However, it's just for you to have and idea, maybe you like it, and if not, just do your own thing, it's music :) I also noted the downstrokes with "d" and the upstrokes with "u", so you might get a better idea of the actual rhythm (always annoying with those ascii tabs). Progression A: In the intro and first verse I play the | G | C | Am | C D | progression like this (note that I don't actually play a D but from the C I slide into someting like a Dadd9add11, I like it but if you don't, just play a normal D):
