Song: Motorcycle Drive By

Artist: Third Eye Blind

Album: Third Eye Blind on Elektra records

Lyrics and music: Stephen Jenkins

Tabbed by: Angell Tsang "a-cute-angle@mailexcite.com"

 

I tabbed this as accurately as I could. It's an awesome song,

especially when it kicks into the distortion. I love the drums

in this song too. I think they should release this one as their

next single. There's no real verse/chorus in the song, and I

couldn't decide what was, so I'll leave it to you to decide...

 

Acoustic guitar in the beginning...

C

Visions of you on a motorcycle drive by,

 

A7sus G6

The cigarette ash flies in your eyes, And you don't mind, you smile,

 

Fmaj7 C

And say the world, it doesn't fit with you.

 

 

I don't believe you, You are so serene.

 

Amin7 G6sus

Careening through the universe, Your axis on a tilt,

 

Fmaj7

you're guiltless and free,

 

C

I hope you take a piece of me with you,

 

Amin7

And there's things I would like to do, that you don't believe in,

 

G6sus Fmaj7

I would like to build something, but you never see it happen,

 

C A7sus

And there's this burning, Like there's always been,

 

G6 Fmaj7

I've never been so alone, And I've,

 

C/G* (distorted strumming)

I've never been so alive,

 

 

(strum) Amin7 G6sus F

 

 

Amin7 F

and there's this burnin', uh huh, there is this burning,

 

C/G

yeah, yeah, yeah...

 

 

Where's the soul. I want to know, New York City is evil.

 

Amin7

The surface is everything, but I could never do that,

 

G6sus

Someone would see through that.

 

C/G Amin7

And this is the last time, We'll be friends again.

 

G6sus F

and I'll get over you, you'll wonder, Who I am.

 

C/G Amin7

And there's this burning, just like there's always been,

 

G6sus F

I've never been so alone, alone, And I've, and I've, I've never been so

 

 

C (back to picking the intro) Fmaj7

alive.......................so alive.

 

Outro:

 

C

I go home to the coast. It starts to rain,

 

Amin7

I paddle out, On the water, Alone, Taste the salt and taste the pain.

 

G6sus C

I'm not thinking of you again, Summer dies and swells rise,

 

Amin7

The sun goes down in my eyes, See this rolling wave,

 

G6sus

Darkly coming to take me,

 

Fmaj7 G6sus Fmaj7

Home, And I've never been so alone, And I've never been so alive.
