TAYLOR PHELAN & THE CANES - Iron Lung

This song is from the album Cupid and the Atomic Bomb (Exhibit B)(2012), released on Aug 01, 2012.
I loved the simplicity of this song, the slow guitar and the smooth vocals add a great feel and emotion to the song. The passion in his vocals can be felt through the beautiful lyrics and his execution is really wonderful. Thanks to Ian for this suggestion.

[INTRO] E C#m B C#m B E x2
[VERSE]
          E        C#m B
I've been making excuses
       C#m       B        E
But excuses stand over time
     E          C#m  B
Are meant to refuse this
      C#m          B     E
But refusal won't be my crime

[CHORUS]
C#m                           B
So I summoned the help of an iron lung
C#m                              B
'Cause my own can't stand the pressure.
            C#m                            B
Well, the breathing gets harder for the tired victim
        C#m                            B
Of the one that makes the breathing better.
                 C#m                    B
The breathing better, The breathing better

[VERSE]
E                     C#m  B
We see things that's useless
             C#m            B    E
But if it's useless then what am I
    E                 C#m B
I dreamed that you were [?]
 C#m        B         E
She gives in to the light

[CHORUS]
C#m                           B
So I summoned the help of an iron lung
C#m                              B
'Cause my own can't stand the pressure.
            C#m                            B
Well, the breathing gets harder for the tired victim
        C#m                            B
Of the one that makes the breathing better.

[INSTRUMENTAL] C#m B C#m B x4
[INSTRUMENTAL] E C#m B x2

[CHORUS]
C#m                           B
So I summoned the help of an iron lung
C#m                              B
Because my own can't stand the pressure.
            A                          B
Well, the breathing gets harder for the tired victim
        C#m                            B
Of the one that makes the breathing better.
                 C#m                    B A B
The breathing better, The breathing better
C#m              B
The breathing better
            C#m    B
The breathing better

[OUTRO]
          E        C#m B
I've been making excuses
       C#m       B        E
But excuses stand over time
