All That That Implies

By Michael Penn

1997 Sony Music Entertainment, Inc.

Things to note:

  • You could decipher this one in any number of keys... I found that using these chords in this key (Capo on 5th fret) worked best for me.
  • Wherever you see a D+, just play a normal D chord (see below) followed by a Dsus, which requires you to only use your pinky to play the G on the high E string:
    D and Dsus Chords D+ figure
  • Wherever you see notation for "C-b", all you have to do there is pull off the C that your index finger is playing on the 1st fret of the B string. (If you prefer a pull-off... you could just strum it, too.) Make sure it happens on the last beat of the measure (C-b falls on the "4-and" of the measure.)

Intro

| G D+ | C D+ |

| G D+ | C D+ |


G   D+       C
Filibust and hesitate

G       D    C     
You say I procrastinate

    G       D+          C
and that my heartbeat's second rate

   G          D    C    C-b
to one you'll recognize


  G         D+      C      
I know that you are drawn to it

   G     Bm     C                  
so all I am is counterfeit

   Em        D      C       
It pulls you so you must submit

     Em     A    C-b                
like ant to honeydew



| G D+ | C D+ |

| G D+ | C D+ |


     G      D+      C           
What I once took as remedies

     G    D       C           
were only chalk hypotheses and

 G       D+     C                
'tis the season for a breeze

   G         D    C-b               
to blow them all away


   G     D+      C                
To add insult to injury

    G       Bm        C              
the sum you get means I agree

   Em       D         C            
so you can call that empathy

         Em       A       C   
and find someone else to blame


    Cm                 G          
You say it's truth and nothing but

Am           D (c b a g f# e d)                    
baby, I sympathize


Chorus

    G        D     Am  C      G     
But all that that implies are lies

   D      Cadd9                      
surprise, surprise

G         D    Am C       G         
All that that implies are lies

   D       Cadd9                     
surprise, surprise

         G 
They're lies

   D
Surprise,

 G         D                      
Take this heart

    C                           
and claim a stake

G        D                       
Shove it through

   C                                    
so I can't wake

    Em         D                  
The cock will crow,

    C       Am                           
the day will break

    Em       A   C                 
but I won't be around


    Cm            G                    
And it may be the kindest cut

Am                D               
word comes in edgewise


Chorus

G        D     Am  C      G
All that that implies are lies

   D      Cadd9                      
surprise, surprise


G        D     Am C       G 
All that that implies are lies

   D      Cadd9                      
surprise, surprise

        G        D         
They're lies, surprise,
