[Intro] G, Em7, Cadd9, Bm7 (3x)    C, Fadd9


[Verse 1]

G       Bm7
So true funny how it seems 
C                   Eb                G
Always in time, but never in line for dreams. 
          Bm7               C
Head over heels when toe to toe. 
            Em          C
This is the sound of my soul, 
            G    D/F#
This is the sound 

C                        G
I bought a ticket to the world, 
C            Emadd13     G
But now I've come back again 
C        Emadd13         G
Why do I find it hard to write the next line? 
   C          Emadd13     Fadd9
Oh I want the truth to be said 


[Chorus]

G           Em7
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh 
  Cadd9    Bm7        G
I know this much is true 
            Em7
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh 
  Cadd9    Bm7     C    Fadd9
I know this much is true. 


[Verse]

G                   Bm7                C
With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue 
             Eb               G
Dissolve the nerves that just begun 
             Bm7               C
Listening to Marvin (all night long) 
            Em          C
This is the sound of my soul, 
            G     D/F#
This is the sound... 

C                       G
Always slipping from my head, 
C        Emadd13        G
Sands of time I've been told 
C         Emadd13      G
Take your seats & I'll write the next line 
C             Emadd13     Fadd9
Oh I want the truth to be known 


[Chorus]

G           Em7
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh 
Cadd9      Bm7         G
I know this much is true 
            Em7
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh 
  Cadd9    Bm7     C   Fadd9  
I know this much is true 



[Solo] Eb, Ab.... G, G6


[Bridge]

C          Emadd13       G
I bought a ticket to the world, 
C                       G    Am7, G(I), C
But now I've come back again 
         Emadd13         G
Why do I find it hard to write the next line? 
   C          Emadd13     Fadd9
Oh I want the truth to be said 

G           Em7
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh 
  Cadd9    Bm7
I know this much is true 
G           Em7
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh 
  Cadd9    Bm7        C, Emadd9, Em(I), C, Emadd9, Em(I)
I know this much is true 
     C              Fadd9
This much is true 

G, Em7, Cadd9, Bm7 (repeat)

Great job. One suggestion, in the bridge (my favourite part of this song, it just gives me chills):"This is the SOUND of my soul" -- I believe on "sound," that chord should be a G instead of Em.

OK, I listened again, and I think we're both right. I like it better as Em7, which of course is Em and G together :) To my ear, the chords needs the D, so Em7 works.

Thanks for the great chord breakdown. I might be wrong but I think the Eb in the verse is a Cm. I also like leaving the third string "open" in your Fadd9 chord instead of the second fret. Oh and the correct lyric is "take your seaside arms and write the next line". Gary Kemp said it was derived from the book Lolita which refers to "seaside limbs". The book was a gift from the girl he was writing the song about.
