Better Than Ezra - Turn Up The Bright Lights

If this isn't 100% correct, it's damn close.  I'm not sure of all the correct 
chord voicings, so I chose what sounded best to me.  When I saw Kevin Griffin play 
this live, he played in the same key but without a capo and with different 
chords.  This still sounds closest to the CD version, imo.  Have fun playing this 
great song!  Rate/comment if you like this tab or have suggestions to improve it.

[Verse]
                 C      D11                Bm7              Em7
It's a lot like falling, taking that first step onto the street
                   C      D11                     Bm7            Em7
The whole night before you, spreading out like a technocolored dream
    C              D11                 Bm7            Em7
So take this city into your arms, and hold it like a kiss
                     C      D11                 Bm7            Em7
Don't it feel like flying, darling what could be better than this?


[Chorus]
              G                          D
Turn up the bright lights, light up the world tonight
                 Em                           C
Shine like the stars shine above Île Saint-Louis
              C     D11      Bm7  Em7
Turn up the bright lights


[Verse]
            C      D11              Bm7           Em7
On a Paris morning, long before the sun dared to rise
                C   D11          Bm7              Em7
Walking on the river, reflecting diamonds in your eyes
    C             D11                         Bm7           Em7
So take this city and catch your breath, and listen to her song
                       C   D11                Bm7              Em7
'Cause she moves like music, darling but in a moment she'll be gone


[Chorus]
              G                          D
Turn up the bright lights, light up the world tonight
                 Em                           C
Shine like the stars shine above Île Saint-Louis
             G                          D
Turn on the mystery, there's no other place to be
           Em                               C
It's only you and me beneath this perfect sky


[Bridge]
              E5-G5-C5           E5-D5-C5
Turn on the bright... lights...
              E5-G5-C5           D
Turn on the bright... lights...

    C              D11                        Bm7            Em7
So take this city and catch your breath, and hold it like a kiss


[Chorus]
              G                          D
Turn up the bright lights, light up the world tonight
                 Em                           C
Shine like the stars shine above Île Saint-Louis
             G                          D
Turn on the mystery, there's no other place to be
           Em                               C
It's only you and me beneath this perfect sky


              G                          D
Turn up the bright lights, light up the world tonight
                 Em                           C
Shine like the stars shine above Île Saint-Louis
              G          D              Em      C
Turn up the bright lights, light up my world tonight
