 G Fmaj7
You want a big red sun... Out on a deep blue sea...

G Fmaj7
You want a big red sun, out on a deep blue sea,

G
you want to look from where you can't be found,

Fmaj7
you think you're making history.

Bb
That's saying something, I'll tell you nothing,

G
Heavenly, dig your scene.


G Fmaj7
A perfect state of mind is what we're dying for,

G Fmaj7
you say you've found a brand new key so you can leave an open door.

Bb
That's really something, I'll tell you one thing -

G
this disease is thrilling me, killing me, thrilling me


G Fmaj7 G Fmaj7

so here we are, all alone, just a memory of you, a postcard you drew
A C#m G G
pressing hard to my lips hoping just a taste of you from in between the lines

and I hoped you could stay closer, and I hoped that you'd say 'closer'........

Em A Em A
I feel I got to let you know, I never want to let you go
Em A Em A
painted you a perfect sky, now you want to say goodbye

A C#m G G
things were cold at the end, somehow suddenly the ice had covered all our tracks
A C#m G G
so no tears, we could fly there was nothing out of reach and no-one will replace you

G A B A B
and I want you to stay closer, want that you'd say 'closer'........

Em A Em A
I feel I got to let you know, I never want to let you go
