Tabbed by .

Albums: “Shamrock Diaries” and “New Light Through Old Windows”

Intro: G  G/C  G  G/C

G                          G/C
In waves of people you can lose your feet
G                              G/C
You’ve got to stay hard to the ground
G                      G/C
It gets so easy now to lose your way
G                        G/C
When you’re ever outward bound
C/F                          C/D
A church bell ringing in the fading light
C/F                              C/D
Stops you dead like a cold steel wall
F/G                          F/C
The ghost of yester-years is touching you
C/F                       G/D
And as sure as god you’ll fall

G         G/C   G/A  F/D
And I see you
G         G/C   G/A  F/D
And I see me
G        G/C  G/A  F/D
I see it all 
        G           G/C   G/A  F/D
Like it used to be

C/F  C/D  C/F  C/D

C/F                         C/D
And all the reasons why you started out
C/F                          C/D
They hit you hard with every bell
F/G                       F/C
The choir practice in the empty hall
     C/F               C/D
Is a sound you know so well
C/F                             C/D
Like something lost inside your overcoat
C/F                     C/D
You find it later by mistake
F/G                        F/C
You lost it all a thousand years ago
        C/F               G/D
And you pray it’s not too late

And I see you
And I see me
I see it all like a diary

And I see you
And I see me
I see it all like it used to be

I’m gonna write it in a diary
Now I remember everything
Yeah I remember how it used to be
With every note that choir boy sings

And I see you
And I see me
I see it all like a diary


G:     320003

!!: Some chords may sound strange when played full with the melody. On the record most chords are mainly played broken (arpeggio)!
Example: On C/F, C/D the piano plays on the record (tones!! (eights); first is free (=x)):  x c f e c f g e

Good luck!
