Lyrics by Eddie Vedder

Pearl Jam
Vs.
1993
Today I was listening to Vs. for the first time in ages, and I realized
how great an acoustic song this one is.  So I checked OLGA for the
chords, played around with it, and edited it a little, and came
up with this.  The original was done by ENGST2@vms.cis.pitt.edu.
He had a good ear but lousy chord naming, so I redid a little.  Once
I had worked it out, I came up with the great idea to have an acoustic
song page, and here it is.  Have fun, good luck, and enjoy this
wonderful song.

P.S.   the chords in the jacket are NOT correct.
P.P.S. C2 is also known as Cadd9; both are played x32033.


D C2 G C2 G I seem to recognize your face D C2 G C2 G Haunting familiar yet I can't seem to place it D C2 G C2 G Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name D C2 G C2 G Lifetimes are catching up with me C2 A C2 All these changes take place A C2 I wish I'd seen the place A Em But no one's ever taken me
D C2 G C2 G Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away D C2 G C2 G Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away
I swear I recognize your breath Memories like fingerprints are slowly raising Me you wouldn't recall for I'm not my former It's hard when your stuck upon a shelf I change by not changing at all Small town predicts my fate Perhaps thatís what no one wants to see
I just want to scream hello By god it's been so long never dreamed you'd return But now here you are and here I am Hearts and thoughts they fade away D C2 G C2 G (repeats till fade) Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away Hearts and thoughts they fade a - way Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away
CHORDS: D xx0232 G 320033 C2 x32033 (also known as Cadd9) A x02220 Em 022000
