Intro:
play parts A, B, and C 2X, second time with recorder solo

Part A:
   F                                D#
The summer had inhaled and held its breath too long
   F                                D#
The winter looked the same as if it never had gone
   C#                            D#
And through an open window where no curtain hung

Part B:
   D#  F  F#
           I saw you
   D#  F  F#
           I saw you
   D#  F  F#
                     Comin'...

Part C:
   C#
...back to me

One begins to read between the pages of a look
The shape of sleepy music and suddenly you're hooked
Through the rain upon the trees that kisses on the run

I saw you     I saw you
Comin' back to me

Part D:
C#
You can't stay and live my way
Scatter my love like leaves in the wind
You always say you won't go away
But I know what it always has been
                ...it always has been

A transparent dream beneath an occasional sigh
Most of the time I just let it go by
Now I wish it hadn't begun

I saw you     I saw you
Comin' back to me

Strolling the hills overlooking the shore
I realize I've been here before
The shadow in the mist could have been anyone

I saw you     I saw you
Comin' back to me

Small things like reasons are put in a jar
Whatever happened to wishes wished on a star
Was it just something that I made up for fun

I saw you     I saw you
Comin' back to me

play parts A, B, and C (with recorder solo) and fade out


Peace,

NOTE: this is basically plagarized from the previous version except that I
discovered the song is in an alternate tuning.  I am very unsure about 
the bridge.
I hope some can improve upon it!

The tab is incorrect. The guitars are in normal tuning but everyone is tuned 66 cents sharp, probably to accomodate Grace's recorder. Marty's guitar part is played entirely on the D,G and B strings. It's all in B minor.
