    I Was a Kaleidoscope

    (Acoustic Version)

    Death Cab for Cutie

     

    Intro: / A - - - / D – Asus2 - / E – Esus4 - / D - - - / (x2)

     

    A                    D     Asus2

        I put on my overcoat and

    E                 Esus4         D

    walked into winter - my teeth chattered rhythms

    A                                          D             Asus2
       And they were grouped in twos or threes, like a

    E                   Esus4         D

    Morse code message was sent from me to

    A                                     D                  Asus2

    Me.  And cars on slippery slopes were stuck: people

    E                                Esus4      D

    pushing through their mittens as I was beginning

    A                              D               Asus2

       to feel it soaking through my shoes, getting

    E                Esus4   D (x2 measures)
    colder with every step i took to your apartment, dear.

    Riff 1

     

    A                         D     Asus2
        And I was a kaleidoscope: the

       E              Esus4      D

    snow on my lenses distorting the image

    A                            D       Asus2

        of what was only one of you and I

    E                 Esus4        D (x2 measures)

    didn't know which one to address as all your lips moved

    (w/Riff 1)
    and this is when I forget breathe

    and all the things I scripted, they sound unfounded.
    And the look that you're giving me,

    That tells me exactly what you are thinking:
    D7/6

    "This ain't working anymore."

     

    Repeat Intro


    D5
    They got their mothers worked into a panic

    B5
    sledding down hills into oncoming traffic

            D5
    the parents layered clothes until the children couldn't move and then

    B5

    left them outside ‘til their noses were blue and

    F#5   Dm/maj7

    I got left there, too.

    / A - - - / D – Asus2 - / E – Esus4 - / D - - - /


    A                    D     Asus2

        I put on my overcoat and

    E                 Esus4         D

    walked into winter - my teeth chattered rhythms

    A                                          D               Asus2
       And they were grouped in twos or threes, like a

    E                   Esus4         D5 (x4 measures)

    Morse code message was sent from me to
