A
There I stood in the night
G#-
 out on the broken pier
            C#-
me with my feet in the sea
C#-7           A
 you with your face in the clouds,
    G#-
the man in the moon
         A
and as I heard your voice,

 felt your laugh
G#-
 flood across the broken pier
A                    (growing, then play chords)
I wanted to die right then and there
     G#-
You smiled down across the waves
         C#-
 as if to say to me
C#-7    A
"Everything will be okay,
     G#-      C#-
be strong and true"
      A
and I felt your eyes

  like the tide
G#-
pulling me out into the air
      A
for a moment in time

 you held me there,


*Play main arpeggio*

      A
and I felt your eyes

  like the tide
G#-
pulling me out into the air
  A
Oh for a moment in time

 you held me there,

F#-
 father and son,
E
home again'

Of course, fell free to make this tab better.
I did my best, but Adrian is a monster guitarist and he does some strange chord; he's a 
he's the story, and I'm only a nut.
But this is my tribute to him.
Thank you Ade.


This tab and the time to write it is dedicated to my father.
I love you Dad, I miss you so much.
My life without you is only an half of what it was.
We’ll be "father and son, home again" and we'll love each other like always.
I’m sure.
