From: Geert Jacobs 
Subject: s/sophia/fixed_water.tab

group: Sophia
album: Fixed Water (partly tabbed)

Sophia is the new band from Robin Proper-Sheppard.
He used to be the singer of 'The God Machine', a band that that made
two great albums('Scenes from the second storey' and 'One last laugh
in a place of dying' very cynical title since their bass player died
shortly after finishing the album). If you like depressed music with
a rough edge you have got to hear it !!! They are(were) one of the best
bands I've heard in years.

Anyway, Sophia is a bit more relaxed than The God Machine but it's
still pretty depressed stuff.

Is it any wonder

 Esus2?            B...


This world is full of dreamers
And this world is full of deceivers
But when kind words can part true lovers
Is it any wonder

 Dsus2               A...

That to me
love has no meaning (x3)
Is it any wonder

And this world is full of talkers
and this world is full of lies
But I spend my time
pushing away the ones that love me

But is it any wonder that to me
love has no meaning(4X)



Are you happy now

The death of a salesman

Intro  F# - C#m(1) - Asus2 - Bsus2 (4x)

1. hammeron on B-string

F#         C#m
	I walk across the road

                Asus2     Bsus2
	and the duke      opens his door

F#	     C#m                Asus2  Bsus2
	i've gotta get away from      what I know
        i take a seat by an open window
	i turn when i hear someone say
	'you can go both ways'
        i finish my drink and reach for my coat
	i say goodbye to some people that i think i know
	i step into the the street
	the rain feels nice in this heat

F#	          C#m         Asus2         Bsus2
	i say i'm sorry as i reach for the lights

C#m	                        F#            C#m    F#
	there's nothing like a long walk on a rainy night(4X)

asus2  -  Bsus2

	i take some advice from a man in death interceptive
	he said 'take some time
	don't let the small things pass by'
	but still i cover myself in the presence
	of a body that's lifeless

        I say i'm sorry as i reach for the lights

	no i'll never let you see me undress
        no i'll never let you see me undress

outro: oh the death of a salesman...
