Alternatively, you can just strum, D G A


The part where he goes "In the water Where I centre my emotion"
strum and appregiate the chorus chords.  That means, basically,
just to strum and randomly pick the chords.  Then straight back
to the normal chorus pattern.

LYRICS
Can I get your hand to write on 
just a piece of leg to bite on 
what a night to fly my kite on 
do you want to flash a light on 
take a look it's on display ... for you 
coming down, no not today 

Did you meet your fortune teller 
get it off with no propeller 
do it up it's on with Stella 
what a way to finally smell her 
picking up but not too strong ... for you 
take a piece and pass it on 

Fly away on my zephyr 
I feel it more than ever 
and in this perfect weather 
we'll find a place together 
fly on... my wind 

Rebel and liberator 
find a way to be a skater 
rev it up to levitate her 
super friendly aviator 
take a look it's on display 
for you ... coming down no not today 

In the water where I center my emorion 
all the world can pass me by 
fly away on my Zephyr 
we'll find a place together 

In the water where I center my emotion 
all the world can pass me by 
fly away on my Zephyr 
we're going to live forever

the first chord strum should be 2-1-3 not 2-3-3, sounds better

on the first tab in the intro, it should be 213 instead of 233, and in the second line of the intro, its 210, not 233. these corrections are correct, bc i listened to the song and played with it!
good song though
