																				Switchfoot
Red Eyes

The guitar bit for the intro and much of the verses is just a D5 alternating with 
the same chord except you slide your finger from the D on the A string to the C# on the A string. 

Intro: 
D5 D5/C# 
x4



    

Verse 1:
D5           D5/C#

what are you waiting for, 
D5         D5/C#

the day is gone?
D5         D5/C#           D5    D5/C# 
I said I'm waiting for dawn 

D5            D5/C#

what are you aiming for 
D5        D5/C#

out here alone? 
Bm         A           G

I said I'm aiming for home 
Em           G

holding on, holding on 


Chorus:
     D     G

with red eyes
Bm            A 
What are you looking for? 
     D    G

with red eyes
Bm    A 
 red eyes 

Verse 2
D5        D5/C#

all of my days are spent 
D5           D5/C#

within this skin 
D5            D5/C#       D5    D5/C#

within this cage that I'm in 

D5             D5/C#

nowhere feels safe to me 
D5            D5/C#

nowhere feels home 
Bm        A          G

even in crowds I'm alone 
 Em             G

holding on, holding on 

Chorus:
     D     G

with red eyes
Bm            A 
What are you looking for? 
     D    G

with red eyes
Bm    A 
 red eyes 
     D     G

with red eyes
Bm            A 
What are you looking for? 
     D    G

with red eyes
Bm    A 
 red eyes 


Bm            F#m             G        Em
every now and then I see you dreaming 
Bm            F#m             G     
every now and then I see you cry
D5            D5/C#            G       Em 
every now and then I see you reaching, 
 F#                     (G)
reaching for the other side
G              A 
what are you waiting for? 
  
G              A 
what are you waiting for? 
  
G              A 
what are you waiting for? 
  
G              A 
what are you waiting for!? 
  

Chorus:
     D     G

with red eyes
Bm            A 
What are you looking for? 
     D    G

with red eyes
Bm    A 
 red eyes 
     D     G

with red eyes
Bm            A 
What are you looking for? 
     D    G

with red eyes
Bm    A 
 red eyes
