Insomnia

Wintersleep
Insomnia by Wintersleep




                              Insomnia







Tuning is Drop D 1/2 step down (Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb)
I believe the band only plays in drop D, however, so I will work on figuring out the 
version later.


Intro/Verse

|---------------------------------------------|
|-----2---------------------------------------|
|-2-------4---4---4-------------------4---4---|
|---2---2---2---2---2-2/4/6-6/7\6\4\2---2---2-|

|-4---2---0---0---0---0---------0-----0---0---|

|---2---4---4---2---2-------2---2---2-|
|-------------------------------------|
|-2---4---4---2---2---2---2---2---2---|

On the fourth time around, the end changes a bit:

|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|-2---6---6---4---4---2---2---1--|
|---2---4---4---2---2---2---2----|
|--------------------------------|
|-2---2---2---2---2---2---2------|

Repeat that particular pattern throughout the song, and you've got your verses!

And I will not grow tired
of crayon stars and fire
The sunlight has punctured tiny holes
of light

Here comes the tricky part to figure out, I may very well be off on this, but at least 
fits the vocals.

I closed my eyes
I held my breath,
I prayed for light,
and gasped for oxygen,
It wasn't there.

|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|

|-4--2--4--4--2--7--9--4--|
|-4--2--4--4--2--7--9--4--|
|-4--2--4--4--2--7--9--4--|

Then close with the intro/verse picking, but slow it down a bit.









I will not grow tired 
of crayon stars and fire
the sunlight has punctured
tiny holes of life

I closed my eyes 
I held my breath
I prayed for light
and gasped for oxygen
it wasn't there
I couldn't see 
to scare the shadow out of me
I couldn't sleep

(I think this is how the rest of it goes.)
