“The Sound of Settling”
by Death Cab for Cutie

C#m        B    E   F#m            A                         C#m
I’ve got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots
C#m     B                E     F#m     A
that my tongue has tied off.
My brain’s repeating, “If you’ve got an impulse, LET IT OUT!”
But they never make it past my mouth…

E    F#m   B              Asus2                    E    F#m      B       Asus2
Ba, ba…   This is the sound of settling.  Ba, ba.  Ba, ba…
Ba, ba…   This is the sound of settling.  Ba, ba.  Ba, ba…

Our youth is fleeting; old age is just around the bend,
and I can’t wait to go gray.
And I’ll sit and wonder of every love that could have been
If I’d only thought of something charming to say.

Ba, ba…   This is the sound of settling.  Ba, ba.  Ba, ba…
Ba, ba…   This is the sound of settling.  Ba, ba.  Ba, ba…

Ba, ba…   This is the sound of settling.  Ba, ba.  Ba, ba…
Ba, ba…   This is the sound of settling.  Ba, ba.  Ba, ba…

I’ve got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots.
