Footsteps follow down to the hollow sound

Torn up

    Em                     Bm
And you would go to Mykonos
       Em                          Bm
With a vision of the channel coast
      Em                    Bm
And a sun to maybe dissipate
        F#m               G   A

Very nice. However, there are some definite corrections, though they are minor..all minor chords, actually. :) Sorry for the pun.

For the line "With a vision of the channel coast," the Em should be an F#m.

And, for the section "I remember how it took you down," both Em chords should be Bm. This goes for the next section that is similar as well.

Other than that, it seems to sound spot on. Keep it up.
