Aqualung "Strange and Beautiful"

Its songs like this that makes me wish I could play the piano...
Here is my version on acoustic. I took my time to make this as easy to play without
taking too much away. Enjoy!

Em      G     Bm            D            Em
   I've been, watching your world from a far
     G     Bm        D            Em           G
I've been, trying to be where you are and I've been
Bm       D        Em        G    Bm   D <-rift 
Secretly falling apart    unseen
Em    G          Bm                 D     Em
   To me, you're strange and you're beautiful
      G      Bm           D          Em         G
You'd be, so perfect with me but you just can't see
    Bm         D            Em        G   Bm  D <- rift  
You turn every head but you don't see me

A          G          Em
I'll put a spell on you, you fall asleep and 
A          G          Em
I'll put a spell on you, and when I wake you
A           G               D       C         G
I'll be the first thing you see and you'll realize that
    A
You love me

   Em   G   Bm   D(rift)  Em  G   Bm   D(rift)
e|-----------2-|-2-0----|----------2-|-2-0----|

D|--2---0----4-|--------|-2---0----4-|--------|
A|--2---2----x-|--------|-2---2------|--------|
E|------3------|--------|-----3------|--------|
        Yeah               Yeah

Em    G          Bm             D             Em
  Sometimes, the last thing you want comes in first
    G          Bm              D          Em          G
Sometimes, the first thing you want never comes and I know
    Bm         D           Em     G     Bm   D <-rift
The waiting is all you can do   sometimes

A          G          Em
I'll put a spell on you, you fall asleep and 
A          G          Em
I'll put a spell on you, and when I wake you
A           G               D       C         G
I'll be the first thing you see and you'll realize that
    A
You love me
