Dashboard Confessional  – Vindicated Acoustic

Vindicated is one of our favorite Dashboard Confessional songs to play live. Here’s an acoustic version of it from Luke and Juan.

 

 

Vindicated” is a song by Dashboard Confessional released on the 2004 soundtrack for the film Spider-Man 2 as well as on Dashboard Confessional’s 2006 album, Dusk and Summer, as a bonus track on some pressings and on deluxe edition versions. Played over the film’s end credits, “Vindicated” is the theme for the film.

Initially, a song titled “I Need a Sure Thing” was to be used on the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack; but, after having received a special screening of the film, Carrabba penned “Vindicated” in 10 minutes,[2][3][4] inspired by and reflecting the theme of the film.[5]

“I Need a Sure Thing” has since then been performed during the Dusk and Summer Tour but not thereafter.

Reception

“Vindicated” was released to radio on June 1, 2004.[6] “Vindicated” received significant airplay on U.S. alternative rock radio stations in late 2004, peaking at #2 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart. It was held off from the #1 spot by Three Days Grace‘s “Just Like You“.[7]

Dashboard Confessional – Vindicated Acoustic chords

 

D                 Bm

Hope dangles on a string

                     Asus4

Like slow spinning redemption

                       G

Winding in and winding out

                              D

The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in

   Bm                    Asus4

So mesmerizing, so hypnotizing

     G

I am captivated

[Chorus]

     D

I am Vindicated

     G

I am selfish

I am wrong

     Bm

I am right

I swear I’m right

          Asus4

I swear I knew it all along

         D

And I am flawed

         G

But I am cleaning up so well

        Bm                                Asus4

I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

   D

So clear

                         Bm

Like the diamond in your ring

                     Asus4

Cut to mirror your intentions

                  G

Oversized and overwhelmed

                                 D

The shine of which has caught my eye

                   Bm              Asus4

And rendered me so isoloated, so motivated

     G

I am certain now that

[Chorus]

   Bm

So turn

                       Asus4

Up the corners of your lips

                             Bm

Part them and feel my finger tips

                       Asus4

Trace the moment, fall forever

                 Bm

Defense is paper thin

                          Asus4

Just one touch and I’d be in

                                      G

Too deep now to ever swim against the current

               D

So let me slip away

               Bm

So let me slip away

               Asus4

So let me slip away

                           G

So let me slip against the current

               D

So let me slip away

               Bm

So let me slip away

               Asus4

So let me slip away

               G

So let me slip away

[Chorus]

Outro (strum lightly and let ring)

       D

Slight hope

                Bm

It dangles on a string

                   G

Like slow spinning redemption…
