    Intro:  Main Riff x2

     

    (one strum per chord)

    A                                Em7

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

    A                                   Em7

    iceberg waiting to change       but she's cold inside    

    A                                 G

          she wants to be like   the water

     

    Main Riff

     

    (w/strum pattern)

    A                               Em7                   

        all the muscles tighten in her face

    A                     Em7                            

       buries her soul in one embrace

    A                                            G (1½)

         they're one and the same   just like the water

     

    Chorus:

    D                         Bm

       the fire fades away  most of every

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

    day is full of tired    excuses     but it's too hard to

    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

    Bm (½)    A (½)      G (½)                    A (½)        

    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)

     

    Bridge:

    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

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

    see me     any   -   more?

     

    Final Chorus:

     

    (one strum per chord)

    D                         Bm

       the fire fades away  most of every

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

    day is full of tired    excuses     but it's too hard to

     

    (w/strum pattern)

    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

    Bm (½)    A (½)      G (½)                    A (½)        

    you're            the other side of the world

    Bm (½)    A (½)      G (½)                    A (½)        

    Oh,                the other side of the world

    Bm (½)    A (½)      G (½)                    A (hold ½)        

    you're            the other side of the world to me
