sleepSleepwalkers from Maddin’s My Winnipeg

Last night was Dallas Green @ MTSC. Bin a big fan since I saw him and the boys play this on Bravo eight years ago.

Here’s a particularly comfy cover from Grandma’s livingroom…brought to us by  XM & thevergeonline.

City and Colour – Old Man 2011


It would seem to me that we live in a time and place where the lyrics to this song are quite appropriate. Sleepwalkers.

Sleeping Sickness lyrics/chords:

lyrics and chords (ultimate-guitar link)
Intro Em – C – G – G/F# – Em – C – G

Verse

G/F# Em C G G/F# Em
I awoke only to find my lungs empty and through the night
C G G/F# Em
so it seems I’m not breathing and now my dreams
C G
are nothing like they were meant to be
G/F# Em C G
and I’m breaking down, i think I’m breaking down
G/F# Em C G
and I’m afraid to sleep because of what haunts me
G/F# Em C G
such as living with the uncertainty
G/F# Em C
that I’ll never find the words to say
G G/F# Em C G G/F#**
which would completely explain, just how I’m breaking down

Chorus
GM Em C
someone come, someone come and save my life
GM Em
maybe I’ll sleep when I am dead
C
but now it’s like the night is taking sides
GM Em C
and all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
GM Em C
could it be this misery will suffice?

Em – C – G – G/F# – Em – C – G

G/F# Em C G G/F# Em
I’ve become a simple souvenir of someone’s kill and like the sea
C G G/F#
I’m constantly changing from calm to ill
Em C
madness fills my heart and soul
G G/F# Em
as if the great divide could swallow me whole
C G G/F#**
oh how I’m breaking down

Play Chorus
