This is based on the version from Solo Acoustic Volume 2. 

As Jackson plays it on the piano it’s not exact but I think it works as a good 
base for you to then use your ear to hear when a base note or something needs to be emphasised.


Intro: A# Gm D# F

A#
In the calling out to one another
       Gm
All the lovers up and down the strand
D#
In the sound of the waves and the cries
       F
Of the seagulls circling the sand

A#
In the fragments of the songs
                 Gm
Carried down the wind from some radio
D#
In the murmuring of the city in the distance
F
Ominous and low

A#                     Gm  
I hear the sound of a world where we played
        D#                           F
And the far too simple beauty of the promises we made

Gm               D#
If you ever need holding
A#             F
Call my name, I'll be there

Gm              D#
If you ever need holding
       A#                          F
And no holding back, I'll see you through

A#   Gm
Sky blue and black
D#     F
//music w/o lyrics//

Repeat intro

A#
Where the touch of the lover ends
        Gm
And the soul of the friend begins
          D#
There's a need to be separate and a need to be one
      F
And a struggle neither wins

A#
Where you gave me the world I was in
      Gm
And a place I could make a stand
              D#
I could never see how you doubted me
         F
When I'd let go of your hand
A#         Gm
Yeah, and I was much younger then
      D#                   
And I must have thought that I would know
   F
If things were going to end
Gm                   D#
And the heavens were rolling
A#                 F
Like a wheel on a track
Gm                D#
And our sky was unfolding
A#                     F
 And it'll never fold back

A#            Gm
Sky blue and black
D#     F
//music w/o lyrics//

Repeat intro

         Gm                        A# D# F
I'd have fought the world for you
          Gm                     A# D# F
If I thought that you wanted me to
       Gm                             A# D# F
Or put aside what was true or untrue
       A#                       F
If I'd known that's what you needed, what you needed me to do me to do

A#                  Gm
But the moment has passed by me now
        D#
To have put away my pride
              F
And just come through for you somehow

Gm              D#
If you ever need holding
A#            F
Call my name, I'll be there
Gm              D#
If you ever need holding
       A#                          F
And no holding back, I'll see you through

A#
You're the colour of the sky
                  Gm
Reflected in each store-front window pane
D#
You're the whispering and the sighing
      F
Of my tires in the rain
A#                                           Gm
You're the hidden cost and the thing that's lost in everything I do
D#            F           A#
Yeah and I'll never stop looking for you

Gm
//music w/o lyrics//

D#
In the sunlight and the shadows
F
And the faces on the avenue

A# Gm D#
        That's the way love is
F
That's the way love is

A# Gm D#
        That's the way love is
F             A#
Sky blue and black

My bad, I'm playing this in a different key to the original, and had forgotten.

I'll leave it here in case it's useful to someone anyway

Damn crappy editing system. I'm playing a whole step(tone) up from the original. I hope it makes sense.

I want to post or [tab]
