 LYRICS
**********
When I am older than these small goddamned hills
And there's no reason for my mind to be still

Oh, how I'll feel like a beautiful child
Such a beautiful child again

When I have finally found my room filled with toys
Be banging on my crib excited with noise

Oh, how I'll feel like a beautiful child
Such a beautiful child again

And when there's nothing to gain
Or bring me pain or pin the blame
On you or myself

And when they finally fall
These wailing walls and burdened crosses
God's twilight and all

How I'll feel like a beautiful child
Such a beautiful child again

Good tab. The correct name for the chord is C9sus4 not C11.

C9sus4 has C G Bb D (which is given by x33333)

A C11 has an E and F in it too.

Thank you :)No, actually C9sus4 and C11 are two names for the same chords/set of notes.
- Both of them notes include F, being either the sus4 or the 11.
- C11 does not include an E, since the b9-interval occuring from doing so automaically excludes. That's kind of implied in the use of C11, which makes it only a 5-notes chord counterintuitive to the 6-notes name.

The difference between the two names is a rather meticulous notation matter, which is pretty pointless and thus mostly a matter of style. I personally use C9sus4 when the 4th is screaming at the 5th just one step above, which is not the case in this song. I then use C11 for that more 80s-spacy "stack of fourths", which the standard tuning of the guitar implies, like it does in this song.
