Will I Start To Bleed



By Marty Willson-Piper


Transcribed by Brian Smith





This song will be easier to play if your hand if your fingers start each figure


in the right position, as shown below.


I will also write in the tab what "chord" your hand should be playing.  Much


of this song just requires your hand ready to play a certain chord, but you


pick out a melody instead.  I'll put the chord in single quotes. e.g 'Am'





First Bar      Second Bar (C Chord)             Third Bar (D add 5)


----2-3-----------------0--------------------------5---(little finger)---------


------3-----------------1--------------------------3---(middle finger)---------


------0-----------------0--------------------------2---(index finger)----------

Here's the actual tab.

What I haven't written out is the bridge section and the lead-in to it.  The


reason is that it is played just by playing the following chords, but one


note at a time, etc, nothing that needs explicit note-for-note transcription.





So, you've played the two verses, here comes the bridge.





(This is the end of last verse...)





A               D     D  C9   D  G  Gsus4


Will I start to bleed ?





Em       B7                Em


Magnetic field around your heart





           B7               Em


I'm sure I felt the engines start





            B7                C


But what if all the fuel runs out ?








Lyrics:


Silence floats into the room


Whispers to me out of tune


And I wonder if these deadly


Awkward moments stay


Stabbing their spikes in me


Will I start to bleed ?





Raise your eyes until they're mine


Lift yourself towards the light


Your face looks like a


Waterfall to me


If I concede, what is it gonna mean ?


Will I start to bleed ?





(Bridge as written above)





Glad I didn't stay with you


So much more for me to do


I am free like Matthieu in the


Age of reason


But somethin' is missing


Will I start to bleed ?

OK, so I'm too chicken to do the whole tabbed version, but here is a simplified chord version. The full version should be written for two guitars.

Verse:Bm D G5 F# (second time don't play F#)
Chorus:Ebm F# Bbm (rpt) Db7 (At shelter in Calais)
Bridge:Ab Ab7 C#m F# (Tell me why her skirts)
