     Hi There!  This is such a lovely song by Blue October
and it's quite easy to play, even for beginners. I did this 
so the lyrics and tabs are there together so you know what
part is played where, which imo, makes it much easier to 
play and sing along:) Listen to the song to get the rhythm 
down for the picking. It sounds great:)

*This plays right along to the studio track from the CD.
The live versions may be slightly different*


               ************Have Fun and RATE:)**********
                                Thanks!

           Cadd9
    I'm unaware

    That you opened the blinds and let the city in

    God, you held my hand

    And we stand

   Your head is on my stomach           
            Am7                                Cadd9

         G                      G6
   So we talked about mom's and dad's 
                Cadd9
   About family pasts 
                   Am7
   Just getting to know where we came from 
       G                 G6
   Our hearts were on display 
              Cadd9
   For all to see 
                           Am7
   I can't believe this is happening to me and

  G                          G6           
   I raised my hand as if to show you that I was yours 
              Cadd9
   That I was so yours for the taking 
       Am7
   I'm so yours for the taking and 
  G                                G6
   Thats when I felt the wind pick up 
                                    Cadd9
   I grabbed the rail while choking up 
                                   Am7
   These words to say and then you kissed me...(yeah)
