Message To My Girl  - Split Enz
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
'Anniversary' version.

[Intro]
B/C#   C#   B/C#   C#  (x3)

[Verse 1]
B/C#                  C#         B/C#                      C#
 I don't wanna say "I love you",  that would give away too much
Bbm      F/A         Fm/Ab  F/A  Bbm                 Fdim/B  Eb
 To be detatched and precious     the only thing you feel is vicious
B/C#                  C#         B/C#                       C#
 I don't wanna say "I want you"   even though I want you so much
Bbm      F/A         Fm/Ab  F/A  Bbm        Fdim/B  Eb
 Wrapped up in conversation       whispered in a hush
            F#
 Though I'm frightened by the word
              G#
 I think it's time I made it heard

[Chorus]
         C#           F#                C#              G#
 No more empty self-possession  visions swept under the mat
         E             F#                      C#sus4   C#
 It's no New Years Resolution   it's more than that

[Verse 2]
 So I wake up happy, warm in a lovers embrace
 Noone else can touch us while we're in this place
 So I sing it to the world
 A simple message to my girl

[Chorus]
         C#           F#                C#              G#
 No more empty self-possession  visions swept under the mat
         E             F#                      C#sus4   C#
 It's no New Years Resolution   it's more than that

[SOLO] (verse chords)
 Though I'm frightened by the word
 I think it's time I made it heard
 So I'll sing it to the world
 A simple message to my girl

[Chorus]
         C#           F#                C#              G#
 No more empty self-possession  visions swept under the mat
         E             F#                      C#sus4   C#
 It's no New Years Resolution   it's more than that

[INTERLUDE] (B/C#  C#  x12)
 Oh every night I hear you call my name
 I wanna sleep in my dark (bedroom?)
 I have a mind to express my pain
 But I won't get back in your tomb
 I wanna hear, I wanna hear, oh why you're gone
 And every night seems the same song
 Same song...
 I will be humming in my sleep
 I don't wanna say
 I don't wanna say...

[OUTRO] C# F# C# G# E F# C#sus4 C#
I can't spend the rest of my life buried in the sand

Mate this tab is fantastic and accurate, for you guitarists out there it might be helpful to point out this song is a lot easier with a capo on the first fret.

Thanks so much for this

I believe it's a G#m instead of the G# - otherwise it's a superior tab.
