[VERSE 1]

E   B
he said
A
there's nothing like your smile, sort of
  E           B          A
subtle, and perfect and real
 E   B
he said,
      A
he never knew how wonderful that 
  E           B           A
smile could make someone feel

    E   B
and he knew
    A
whenever you get bored you'd scribble 
E            B             A
stars on the cuffs of your jeans
    E   B
and he noticed
          A
that you still fill out the quizzes that they
E            B      A
put in those teen magazines

[PRE CHORUS]

        C#m7     F#7
but he kept it all
  B    A   E
inside his head
        C#m7     F#7    B
what he saw, he left unsaid
                A
and though he wanted to,
             E
he couldn't talk to you,
                     A
he couldn't find the way,
                     B
but he would always say,

[CHORUS]
            A    E
if i could tell her
             C#m7       B
tell her everything i see
             A   E
if i could tell her
           C#m7           B
how she's everything to me,

      A     E       B      C#m7
but we're a million worlds apart
    A                              B
and i don't know how i would even start,
            E       B   A
if i could tell her
            E       B   A
if i could tell her

E B A
E B A

[VERSE 2]

E   B
he  thought
A
you looked really pretty- eh erm,
A
it looked pretty COOL, when you put
E      B               A
indigo streaks in your hair
    E    B
and he wondered
 A
how you learned to dance like all the 
 E          B           A
rest of the world isn't there

[PRE CHORUS]

       C#m7     F#7
but he kept it all
  B    A   E
inside his head
        C#m7     F#7    B
what he saw, he left unsaid

[CHORUS]

            A    E
if i could tell her
             C#m7       B
tell her everything i see
             A   E
if i could tell her
           C#m7           B
how she's everything to me,

      A     E       B      C#m7
but we're a million worlds apart
    A                              B
and i don't know how i would even start,
            E       B   A
if i could tell her
            C
if i could tell her

[BRIDGE]

                G                         C
but what do you do, when there's this great divide?
         D               C
(he just seems so far away...)
                G            Em              D
and what do you do, when the distance is too wide?

(it's like i don't know anything)
    D
and how do you say,
   C
i love you
   C
i love you
   C
i love you
   C
i love you

[FINAL CHORUS]

      C       G     Bm     Em
but we're a million worlds apart
    Am                            D
and i don't know how i would even start
            G      Am   C
if i could tell her
        G   Am   C
if i could

I'm pretty sure all the Cm7 should actually be C#m7. Otherwise sounds great!
