G

I need a bed

D

That nobody’s slept in

G

I need some air

D

That nobody’s been breathing

G

I need a thought

D

That I can believe in

A

Is this fog

Or is the building really burning

 

G

I need you now

D

Much more than ever

G

I’m making new friends

D

But none of them matter

G

Maybe now

D

We don’t fit together

A

But you’ve got your arms around

No one but strangers

 

(chorus)

 

D

I feel fine

G

With the sun in my eyes

D

The wind in my hair

G

When I ‘m falling out of this sky

D G

I’m doing better than I thought I would

D

But nothing’s ever as good

G

As when you’re on top

 

 

I want to wake up

And just start running

Into a ditch

Or straight up a mountain

I want to get

Where no ones’s been gettin’

Make it deeper than hell

Or make it higher than heaven

I need someone whose price hasn’t been met

When everybody’s disappearing

By the minute

There isn’t anyone left

That I haven’t met yet

Well I remember

When they hadn’t gotten to you yet

 

(chorusx2)

 

(bridge)

Bm

Half way up

G

And over this rainbow

D

I heard a shot

A

Fire up from the ghetto

Bm

As I drop

G

I didn’t think you’d follow

E

Just didn’t know D....G.....D.....G

 

The sky was this shallow

(solo

use tremalo)

B----------------------------8tt-10tt----------------------

G--------------------7tt-9tt-------------------------------

D-7ttt-9-7t-9-10tt-----------------------------------------

A----------------------------------------------------------

E----------------------------------------------------------

play around with those notes.

 

 

I need a garden

Where nothings forbidden

I need an apple

That no one’s been eatin’

I want to start again

Back at the beginin’

I had a vision

That this feeling maybe has an ending

 

(Chorus)
