(one strum per chord)

A                                Em7

over the sea and far away    she's waiting like an

(w/strum pattern)

A                               Em7                   

    all the muscles tighten in her face

A                     Em7

A                                            G (1½)

     they're one and the same   just like the water

D                         Bm

say     I wish it was simple but we give up

        G (½)            D/F# (½)     Em (½)         A (½)

easily    you're close       enough        to see that

you're            the other side of the world to me

 

Main Riff

 

A                                    Em7              

on comes the panic light    holding on with

 A                                   Em7             

fingers and feelings alike     but the time has

A             G

come to move along

 

Chorus (don’t sing “to me” at the end)

Em                            G

      can you help me?   Can you let me

Main Riff

go?

Em                                Bm

      and can you still love me when you can't

see me     any   -   more?
