The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness Chords by The National

Capo 3

[Verse 1]
Em                   Am 
Maybe I listen more than you think
C            Dm            F
I can tell that somebody sold you
Em                       Am 
We said we’ve never let anyone in
C                 Dm              F
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets

[Chorus]
Em                  Am     C     Dm  F
The system only dreams in total darkness
Em    Am     C     Dm  F
Why are you hiding from me?
Em                  Am     C     Dm  F
We’re in a different kind of thing now
Em    Am          C      Dm  F
All night you’re talking to God

[Verse 2]
Em                              Am 
I thought that this would all work out after a while
C                       Dm                      F
Now you’re saying that I’m asking for too much attention
Em                              Am 
Also no other faith is light enough for this place
C             Dm            F
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets

[Chorus]
Em                  Am     C     Dm  F
The system only dreams in total darkness
Em    Am     C     Dm  F
Why are you hiding from me?
Em                  Am     C     Dm  F
We’re in a different kind of thing now
Em    Am          C      Dm  F
All night you’re talking to God

[Bridge]
 C     Dm  F
I cannot explain it
Em           Am
Any other, any other way
 C     Dm  F
I cannot explain it
Em           Am
Any other, any other way

[Chorus]
Em                  Am     C     Dm  F
The system only dreams in total darkness
Em    Am     C     Dm  F
Why are you hiding from me?
Em                  Am     C     Dm  F
We’re in a different kind of thing now
Em    Am          C      Dm  F
All night you’re talking to God

[Outro] C     Dm  F
I cannot explain it
Em           Am
Any other, any other way
 C     Dm  F
I cannot explain it
Em           Am
Any other, any other way
 C     Dm  F
I cannot explain it
Em           Am
Any other, any other way
 C     Dm  F
I cannot explain it
Em           Am
Any other, any other way
