A               E             D
If I stand too close I might fall in
            A       E         D
But if I’m too far gone I’ll never win
         A        E      D                            
If you believe in me I might just want 
              F#m        E    D
to spend some time with you again
      A       E         D
I’m afraid I tend to disappear 
         A       E          D
Into an anxious state when you draw near 
             A     E         D
There is no reasoning it’s quite a silly thing 
             F#m       E         D
But it’s the way I’ve been for years 
           A     E       D
So I will understand if you don’t stay 
              A         E                 D
They say I’m great at first but then the magic fades 
          A    E      D
Into an awful you of dismal views 
     F#m         E    D
and pessimistic attitude 

D          A        D       E      D
All this distance years of sweet resistance 
D         A     G               D
Swirling over head like angry clouds of discontent 
       
A,E,D 3x
F#m,E,D 
        A      E     D
I have apologised a billion times 
                A       E         D
When I’ve gone off the wall like Busta Rhymes 
               A      E          D
And pulled a stupid stunt that left you thinking 
           F#m        E        D
there was something wrong with me 
                 A          E      D
you’ve thrown a few choice phrases at my way 
            A          E      D
And I’ve ignored them all as best I could 
             A    E         D
Except that tiny bit how I just can’t commit 
               F#m      E        D
There is some truth in what you say 

D          A        D       E      D
All this distance years of sweet resistance 
D         A     G               D
Swirling over head like angry clouds of discontent 

       A        E       D
If I stand too close I might fall in 
            A       E          D
But if I’m too far gone I’ll never win 
        A         E     D
If you believe in me I might just want 
              F#m       E     D
To spend some time with you again 
             F#m        E    D
I spent some time with you again 

A,E,D 3x
F#m,E,D 

     A         E        D
If I stand too close I might fall in 
            A       E          D
But if I’m too far gone I’ll never win 
         A        E      D 
If you believe in me I might just want
              F#m        E    A
To spend some time with you again

This might be a little off, I don't usually learn stuff by ear but as I went through these chords I made myself try to learn the lead riff. I think* I got the basics of it. Let me know what you think.

It's all on the G string. Well at least what I figured out. I would not be surprised if you could add on to it and make it sound a little more whole. Oh well

G-99999999-9-7-6-4-2~
play that 3 times then

G-7777-6666-2~


I am pretty sure on the last part he goes straight to the A at the end and doesn't play the B before it. But I am working on laptop speakers so I might be missing a quick note there.

For this part, maybe change it to:

F#m A D E
All this distance years of sweet resistance
F#m A G D
Swirling over head like angry clouds of discontent
