4/4| C C C | G | C Csus4 | G |

 

C Csus4

I'm a billion ages past you

C Csus4

A million years behind you too

Bb G

A thousand miles up in the air

Bb G G6 G7

A trillion times I've seen you there

 

C Csus4

Your hair is golden, mine is grey

C Csus4

You walk on grass, it turns to hay

Bb G

Your blood is blue and your eyes are red

Bb G G6 G7

My body strains, but the nerves are dead

 

[Chorus 1]

C Bb

I can't reach you, I've strained my eyes

C Bb

I can't reach you, I've split my sides

C G/B / Am7 G6 /

I can't reach, tryin' to get on you

Fadd9 C/E / Gsus4 F/D C

See, feel or hear from you

 

| C | G | C | G |

 

The distances grow greater now

You drink champagne and past me plough

You fly your plane right over my head

You're so alive and I'm nearly dead

 

[Chorus 2]

C Bb

I can't reach you, with arms outstretched

C Bb

I can't reach you, I crane my neck

C G/B / Am7 G6 /

I can't reach, tryin' to get on you

Fadd9 C/E / Gsus4 F/D / C

See, feel or hear from you

 

| C | G | C | G |

 

[Bridge]

Am G (C/G) (G)

Once I caught a glimpse of your unguarded, untouched heart

Am G C/G G

Our fingertips touched and then my mind tore us apart

 

[Repeat chorus 2]

 

| C | G |

[Chorus 3]

D C

I can't reach you, with arms outstreched

D C

I can't reach you, I crane my neck

D A/C# / Bm7 A6 /

I can't reach tryin' to get on you

Gadd9 D/F# / Asus4/E G D

See, feel or hear from you
