I thought people might want to know what the chords were for this song. Musically, It's actually quite impressive musically for an Our Lady Peace song, methinks, and a huge step up from anything on gravity. The verse chords are as follows C Em A G Bb Am Bb Am
for the prechorus, fool around with E flat and B flat
the chorus is F C G D C and the bridge C (quick hit on G) F (quick hit on a) Bb D
It's all in standard, which really surprised me. The lyrics aren't special for where are you, But boy is this song fun to play when singing along to it with its original chorus. Also, it's interesting to note that at live 8 they had to play it a whole step down, and even then raine couldn't sing it particularily well. I think 'ol Raine is really losing it. Anyways, enjoy.


Ps. there is, of course, another guitar playing stuff throughout the song that i have no patience to tab out, but it's a pretty cool mix with the rythm.
Don't ask questions, just accept it.

After finding a lead tab, and actually playing this song, I've found a new appreciation for it.

Fast + lots of stuff going on (multiple guitar tracks) = :duncan:

Also, the song makes more sense (as in, not just random crap thrown together) from a guitar standpoint. I think the main problem with the song's structure is the vocals, which change sporadically from one style and one melody to another.

If I was to review it again, it might be bumped up to a two. :lol: Then again, I may just be excited about learning to play new OLP material that isn't just a simple formation of power chords over 10 tracks ( :gravity: ).

Hah, Im also starting to like it, Ive realized its actually quite complex. Thats why they have trouble playing it live, theres just so much going on during the song.

I play drums, but unlike the guitar, the drums are pretty simple in this song, in comparison to older OLP, which can be extremely difficult.

The guitar isn't all the difficult in WAY, it's just that there are a couple of lead guitar tracks. Each riff is pretty cool, but all together the song comes out somewhat muddled.
