Such Great Heights

The Postal Service

 
Capo 5


Intro: / C - - - / - - - - / Em - - - / - - - - / Dm - - - / - - - - / (x2)

           / Dm - - - / - - - - /

                

(C)I am thinking it's a (Em)sign

that the freckles in our (Dm)eyes are mirror images

and (F)when we kiss they're (G)perfectly aligned

 

and (C) I have to specu(Em)late

that god himself did (Dm)make us into corresponding

(F)shapes like puzzle (G)pieces from the clay

 

and (C)true, it may seem like a (Em)stretch

but it's thoughts like this that (Dm)catch my troubled head

when you're a(F)way, when I am (G)missing you to death

 

(C)when you are out there on the (Em)road

for several weeks of (Dm)shows

and when you scan the radio(F)

I hope this (Em)song will guide you home

 

Chorus:

(C)they will see us waving from such(G) great heights

come (F)down now, they'll (Em)say

but (C)everything looks perfect from (G)far away

come (F)down now

but (Em)we'll stay 

 

(C)I tried my best to (Em)leave

this all on your (Dm)machine

but the persistent beat, it

(F)sounded thin u(G)pon listening

 

and (C)that frankly, will not (Em)fly

you will hear the shrillest (Dm)highs

and lowest lows with the windows (F)down

when this is (G)guiding you home

 

Chorus

 

Solo:  / C - - - / - - - - / Em - - - / - - - - / Dm - - - / - - - - / (x4)
