Alternatively, you can just strum, D G A

 

 

The part where he goes "In the water Where I centre my emotion"

strum and appregiate the chorus chords. That means, basically,

just to strum and randomly pick the chords. Then straight back

to the normal chorus pattern.

LYRICS

Can I get your hand to write on

just a piece of leg to bite on

what a night to fly my kite on

do you want to flash a light on

take a look it's on display ... for you

coming down, no not today

 

Did you meet your fortune teller

get it off with no propeller

do it up it's on with Stella

what a way to finally smell her

picking up but not too strong ... for you

take a piece and pass it on

 

Fly away on my zephyr

I feel it more than ever

and in this perfect weather

we'll find a place together

fly on... my wind

 

Rebel and liberator

find a way to be a skater

rev it up to levitate her

super friendly aviator

take a look it's on display

for you ... coming down no not today

 

In the water where I center my emorion

all the world can pass me by

fly away on my Zephyr

we'll find a place together

 

In the water where I center my emotion

all the world can pass me by

fly away on my Zephyr

we're going to live forever
