Wish You Were Here
Incubus

Standard Tuning (EADGBe)

Asus2 = |002200|

Everything is actually played as power chords besides the Asus2, but that sounds a bit 
too empty with just one acoustic guitar to me.

[Intro]
|Asus2 E |F#m A E |x2
|Asus2 E |Bm  D E |Asus2 E |F#m A E |x2


[Verse]

|Bm A|F#m D|x2

|Bm     A                   |F#m D |
   I dig my toes into the sand
|Bm         A                     |F#m               D                  |
   The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds strewn across a blue blanket
|Bm      A                |F#m          D                |
   I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless
|Bm           A           |F#m  D      |
   and in this moment i am happy, happy


[Chorus]

|Asus2 E|Bm    D       E            |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|F#m       A       E        |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|Bm    D       E             |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|F#m       A       E        |
       I...        wish you were...


[Verse]

|Bm A    |F#m D|
 ...here
|Bm A|F#m D|

|Bm     A                   |F#m D |
   I lay my head onto the sand
|Bm       A                    |F#m       D                   |
   The sky resembles a backlit canopy with holes punched in it.
|Bm            A   |F#m               D             |
   I'm counting ufo's, I signal them with my lighter
|Bm           A           |F#m  D       |
   and in this moment i am happy, happy.


[Chorus]

|Asus2 E|Bm    D       E            |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|F#m       A       E        |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|Bm    D       E            |
       I...        wish you were...
|Asus2 E|F#m       A       E        |
    Here...       wish you were...


[Bridge]

|F#m   A|G  G  |
 Here..
|F#m   A|G  G  |
|F#m                       A  |G                         |
   The world's a roller coaster and I am not strapped in.
|F#m                        A           |G                                |
   Maybe I should hold with care, but my hands are busy in the air saying


[Chorus] (softer)
|Asus2 E|F#m   Asus2    E            |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|F#m       A       E        |
       I...        wish you were...
Chorus (normal)
|Asus2 E|Bm    D       E            |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|F#m       A       E        |
       I...        wish you were here
|Asus2 E|Bm    D       E            |
       I...        wish you were...
|Asus2 E|F#m       A       E        |  Asus2
       Here...     wish you were...    here...

I do Asus2, E, B5, D5, E followed by Asus2, E, F#5, A5, E (neither Asus2 nor E are power chords - everything else is), and it sounds just fine. That's just the chorus progression; take those chords and make them work for the rest of the song.
