There are some parts that I couldn't be positive  of the guitars part, due
to the volume of the guitar, but it fits and the parts you can hear fit.

           Who knew the other side could be so green


~VERSE 2~

Repeat with these lyrics.

Don't remind me I'm a chickadee in love with the sky
But that's clearly not a lot to crow about
'Cause when the stars silhouette me
I'm scared they'll forget me and flicker out
I taste honey but I haven't seen the hive
Yeah I didn't look I didn't even try
But still my heart stops without you
'Cause there's something about you that makes me feel alive


~REPEAT CHORUS~


~BRIDGE~

Electric plays chords again.

                  We are the honey and the bee

C           F     G
Backyard of butterflies surround me
C             F         G
And I fell in love with you like bees to honey
C              F         G              Am
So lets up and leave the weeping to the willow tree
C            F            G
And pour our tears in the sea
  Am C G                                F                      G
I swear there's a lot of vegetables out there that crop up for air
          C                                   F
And yet I never thought we were two peas in a pod
          Am       G
'Till you suddenly bloomed I knew
     F          Am   G      F           Am       G
That I'd always love you oh I'll always love you too


~CHORUS~

Repeat chorus without the electric guitar.
