A little difficult. I'm not sure all the chord are right, because the
guitar play principally solo parts and not accompainment. The chords are
a "background" that could be played with a keyboard, or (in a unplugged
version) by himself.

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.

As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

My father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

At the beginning there is no vibrato, it is actually a tremolo effect on the guitar.
