B

This is the place

A* A13 G#m7 E

Sit down, you're safe now

B

You've been stuck in a lift

A* A13 G#m7 E

We've been trying to reach you, Thom

B

This is the place

A* A13 G#m7 E

It won't hurt, it won't hurt again

 

 

B

A scent of recognition

 

A face you barely loved

 

Empty all your pockets

A* A13 G#m7 E

Cause it's time to go home

 

 

B

This is the place

A* A13 G#m7 E

Remembering all the things you always see

You've been stuck in a lift

A* A13 G#m7 E

In the belly of a whale at the bottom of the o_____cean

 

 

B

A scent of recognition

 

A face you barely loved

 

Empty all your pockets

A* A13 G#m7 E

Cause it's time to go home

G#m7 E

Let it go, let it go

 

 

B

Today is the first day

A* A13 G#m7

of the rest of your days

E

So lighten up, squirt

CHORDS:

Please note that a dropped D tuning on both E strings is used. Also, there is a use of a capo on the 4th fret. A capo is not essential, and the song can still be played no matter where you use it. For players wanting to play "Lift" with un-capoed strings, simply subtract 4 from each of the fret numbers below.

As for the Amaj7 add flat12 chord, that's just getting technical. It is a pretty weird chord, but it sounds cool nonetheless. I've shortened it to A* just to make it easier to read.

This is the fingering I use for the chords. Feel free to use an alternate fingering if it's easier. The fingers are numbered respectively 1-4, index to pinky.

Pretty easy fingering, so there should be no problems there. I believe the B is spiced up by a few random variations to the chord, which can be achieved with your 1st finger. For the E chord, it is basically a C major shape, but you'll need to mute the low D string with your thumb (indicated with the X), otherwise the chord will sound icky.

 

---------------------------------

 

This tab is a half-step lower than last tab, anyone who thinks it was right

last time should tune down half a step before their strings break......

Also I'm not 100% sure about the A+5 bit chord, I've got a bad live copy of

lift.....

 

Intro: Just strum a Bb chord for 4 bars (It changes to a sus2 when Thom starts singing)

 

Bbsus2

This is the place.

A+5 bit G#m E

Sit down, you're safe now.

Bbsus2

A+5 bit G#m E

It won't hurt, it won't again

 

 

Bbsus2

A scent of recognition.

 

A face you barely loved.

 

Empty all your pockets.

A+5 bit G#m E

Cause it's time to go home.

Bbsus2:

All th rest is easy, except the A+5 bit, which should roughly look like this

 

E---0---0---0---0---|

B---0-h-2-h-4-p-0---|

G---2---2---2---2---|

D---2---2---2---2---|

A---0---0---0---0---|

E---X---X---X---X---|

 

if it doesn't sound right ad-lib in this style until it does.
