    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)
