Intro:  Am7  Dsus2


Am7                   Dsus2
    I´ve watched the stars fall silent 
from your eyes
All the sights that I have seen
    I can´t believe that I 
believed I wished that you could see
There´s a new planet in the solar system
There is nothing up my sleeve


C      C/B        Am
   I´m pushing an elephant up the stairs
   I´m tossing up punchlines that were never there
   Over my shoulder a piano falls
G
Crashing to the ground


Am7          Dsus2
   And all this talk of time
Talk is fine
And I don´t want to stay around
   Why can´t we pantomime, just 
close our eyes and sleep sweet dreams
Being here with wings on our feet


C       C/B       Am
   I´m pushing an elephant up the stairs
   I´m tossing up punchlines that were never there
   Over my shoulder a piano falls
G
Crashing to the ground


Am      C        G           D       Am
    I´m breaking through I´m bending spoons
    C       G (hold)        Am
I´m keeping flowers in full bloom
    C           G                D          C
I´m looking for answers from the great beyond


           Am7               D2
I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
Sweetest dreams of you
Look into the stars
Look into the moon


C       C/B        Am  
    I´m pushing an elephant up the stairs
    I´m tossing up punchlines that were never there
    Over my shoulder a piano falls
G
Crashing to the ground


Am      C        G           D       Am
    I´m breaking through I´m bending spoons
    C       G (hold)        Am
I´m keeping flowers in full bloom
    C           G                D          C
I´m looking for answers from the great beyond


Am      C        G           D       Am

Sounds good to me. The only change I would make it to play the C/B like this:
e-0
B-1
G-0
D-2
A-2
E-0
but apart from that its good in my opinion! :D
