i'm pretty new to elf power. i first heard 'nothing's going to happen' (the album) and wasn't blown away, but upon finding out it was a covers album, i realized that i shouldn't judge them by that. so about a year later i'm finally hearing 'a dream in sound'. it is amazing stuff. anyway, on with the thread...

elf power songs are really easy to play (i don't mean to discredit the guys or anything; still great songs), so i've figured out most of 'a dream in sound'. but to make tabs i'd like the lyrics to put with them, so if some people could interpret:

-old tyme waves
-simon (the bird...)
-what a beautiful dream

then i'll post the tabs to them asap. the logical thing would be for me to just do it, but i am really lazy, and i'm ashamed that i took the time to tab it but am too lazy to write out words.

what a beautiful dream lyrics:

Lift me up through the tops of the trees,
and I'll sleep till the morning,
come to live in the glorious dream,
let me sleep till the morning

I'm thinking of drinking the entire sea
Where fishes make wishes and swim into me,
There is no place other that I'd rather be,
Oh what a beautiful dream

Just remember invisible eyes,
They will see you clearly,
So surrender now into the night,
and you'll sleep so deeply

I'm thinking of drinking the entire sea
Where fishes make wishes and swim into me,
There is no place other that I'd rather be,
Oh what a beautiful dream

And I've lost my head inside the dream,
And Iíll paint the scene for you

But not before I wake from sleep
No, not before I wake from sleep

i think this may be my favorite elf power song. very pretty shi t. hopefully you get those tabs up soon, i can't wait to play this.

simon:

Simon take your time dear,
Don't flown away too far,
I think about you all the time,
I wonder where you are,
I know you've led a billion lives,
I've seen your new disguise

He was the bird with the candybar head,
The other birds never let you fly,
They're always nibbling on your head,
Never thought to ask them why,
No you never thought to ask them why

Simon shook his feathers
and flew up in the sky,
The way his flock would make him walk,
it always made me cry,
I know you've flown a billion miles,
I've seen you in the sky

He was the bird with the candybar head,
The other birds never let you fly,
They're always nibbling on your head,
Never thought to ask them why,
No you never thought to ask them why

When I see them pecking on you in the rain,
I will chase them all away,
I will take you home,
and mend your broken body...

Cause you're the bird with the candybar head,
The other birds never let you fly,
They're always nibbling on your head,
Never thought to ask them why,
No you never thought to ask them why
No you never thought to ask them why

Sorry if this has been posted before:

The Arrow Flies Close Tab:

Most of it is A E D strait through.
___A_______E______D
It seems like I'm in danger
Distracted by all that I see
And even the nodding strangers
Can tell what is happening to me
___A_______E______D
Well, the boats we ride
Have been leaking lately
And the tunnel of frozen time
Has been increasing greatly
________E_________D
There's a knot in my throat
And the arrow flies close
___________A__E__D
Closer all the time
___________A__E__D
Closer all the time
___A_______E______D
Close the windows, stop the yawning
As the world grows weary of me
I cast off this sense of belonging
And slip into memory
___A_______E______D
Then to my friends, I'll be gone
And they'll gather and put me away
I hope Jeff will sing me a song
And everyone else will play
________E_________D
There's a knot in my throat
And the arrow flies close
___________A__E__D
Closer all the time
___________A__E__D
Closer all the time

i just noticed that you asked for the lyrics. i gave it a shot, but i think that i'm way off on some parts.

the bengal parade

i saw you around
slip through the crowd
operating lonely tonight

we could just cry
flip through the sky
into the world passing by

it's so far away from the homes we used to know
and the bengals dance on parade there

because tigers don't bite
don't know how to fight
they simmer with peaceful desire

we could stay here
spending the years
tending our own little fire

it's so far away from the homes we used to know
and the bengals dance on parade

mourning the facts of a dutiful life
enormous respect for the beautiful light
seal up the cages the keys cannot learn
you could stray in there never return

something something something

i like you more
only stretched short
beautiful dream in disguise
if we return
the story won't matter
we could be here all the time

it's so far away from the homes we used to know
and the bengals dance on parade there
