This was not created by me. Stay (Faraway, So Close) is a cover of U2.
Transcribed by Eden Kung (KefkaTheMad@Yahoo.com)

This is the acoustic version of Stay (Faraway, So Close!) that U2 played on
their Elevation tour DVD. It’s drastically different from the original and
sounds better in my humble opinion.
