The Past Recedes Chords
One, Two, Three, Four
   INTRO
   G   D   AM   EM   X3 
   G   D   AM
VERSE
 G        D          AM   EM
And then the past recedes
G          D        AM   EM
And I won't be involved
G          D       AM   EM
The effort to be free
G            D          AM
Seems pointless from above
VERSE
G           D          AM   EM
You're looking down at me
G        D        AM   EM
I'd rather stay below
G                D          AM   EM
Than have you staring up at me
G        D           AM     B
Is nowhere I want to go
CHORUS
C              AM           EM               D
Ay, This business of how long we try to stay alive
C           AM                EM                
Why to be here you first got to die
        D   
So I gave it a try
      C                G               AM
And what do you know time was so long ago

VERSE
G          D        AM   EM
And things come back you see
G          D        AM   EM
To where they don't belong
G          D        AM   EM
And every drop of sea 
G          D      AM     B
Is the whole ocean

VERSE
C           AM         
I lied to the greatest thieves
       EM             D
About anything and everything
C        AM         EM           
I'm a figure of forgotten speech
     D
I'm out of reach
C                G    
I can't play it safe
              AM
But I might just in case

Solo (see other tab)

C                    G    
I'm disguised as a reaching hand    
        AM
I'm a working man
C                        G
I don't understand why clock out
       AM
Comes so slow every time
C                  G             AM
That's one line I stay right behind
C                  G             AM   B
That's one line I stay right behind.

 G   D   AM   EM   X3 
 G   D   AM   B    G

=D  Enjoy

About the artist behind The Past Recedes Chords:

John Anthony Frusciante (pronounced [fruːˈʃɑːnteɪ (info)) (born March 5, 1970) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known as the guitarist of the alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he has recorded five studio albums. Frusciante also maintains an active solo career, having released nine albums under his own name, as well as two collaborations with Josh Klinghoffer and Joe Lally under the name Ataxia. His solo recordings incorporate a variety of elements ranging from experimental rock and ambient music to New Wave and electronica. Drawing influence from guitarists of various genres, Frusciante emphasizes melody and emotion in his guitar playing, and favors vintage guitars and analog recording techniques.

Frusciante joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the age of eighteen, first appearing on the band's 1989 album Mother's Milk. The group's follow-up album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, was a breakthrough success. However, he was overwhelmed by the band's newfound popularity and as a result quit in 1992. He became a recluse and entered a long period of heroin addiction, during which he released his first recordings: Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt (1994) and Smile from the Streets You Hold (1997). In 1998, Frusciante successfully completed drug rehabilitation and rejoined the Chili Peppers for their 1999 album Californication. Since then he has continued to record with the band and has received critical recognition for his guitar-playing, ranking eighteenth on Rolling Stone's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2003.[1]
