Closer
From "The Song Inside the Sounds of Breaking Down"
Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter)


There are already two chord charts submitted for this, but neither of them
are complete or entirely accurate (in my opinion). Here it is with the tabs
and correct chord charts.


Intro - D
(see tab below for xylephone part to play under the intro and verse 1)


Verse 1
      D                 G 
Come closer, closer to me.
         Bm7   A/C#             G
Find me broken,    find me bleeding
              D                G
cause I need more now than a fairy tale, 
  Bm7                A/C#          G
a God who lives in a book. I need someone real. 


Chorus
               D             Asus
So would you come? Would you come? 
                           Em7   D/F#          G   Gmaj7
If I begged You, would You come closer to me now? 


Verse 2
       D            G
Come closer, closer to me. 
          Bm7 A/C#          G
Find me broken,    find me on my knees, 
              D                G
cause I need more now than philosophy.
     Bm            A/C#              G 
Some God in outer space doesn't mean anything to me. 


Chorus x2
(solo is chorus chords) end on D


Bridge
D                           Asus
Son of David, don't pass me by, 
  Em             D/F#                G
cause I am naked,    I'm poor and I'm blind. 
 



Intro                    Outro (same riff in harmonics)
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|--------8-8-7-7-----------------------h7-h7--------|
G|----7-----------7---------h7----h5-h5-------h7-----|
D|--7---7----------------h7----h7--------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|


Verse 2 tab
Keep repeating each of these hammer on riffs
e|------5--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------8---------7--------5--------8-------------------------|
G|--6h7------6h7-------6h7------6h7------6h7---------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|


Here's the solo tab. The first riff where it says "G" comes in right after
he screams "closer to me now". For the tremolo picking, I didn't tab each
note out, so just play these lines the appropriate amount of times. You'll
hear it.

    G                   D                      A
e|-----10----10-12-----------------------------------------------------|
B|--10----10-----------------------------------14~~-15b----------------|
G|----------------------11~~~-14~~-12~~-11~----14~~-14~~---------------|
D|----------------------12~~~-12~~-12~~-12~----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
    Em               D/F#             G
e|-------------------15~~-14~~-12~~---17~~--17-----17-----17-----------|
B|--19~~-17~~-15~~---15~~-15~~-15~~---15~~-----14b----14b----14b-------|
G|--19~~-19~~-19~~-----------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
