[Intro]

G C G D/F#    G C G D/F#  G

[Verse 1]

           G
Where the Earth show it bones of wind broken stone
         D/F#
and the sea and the sky are one
     Am                      C
I'm caught out of time, my blood sings with wine
          D/F#
and I'm running naked in the sun
         G
There's God in the trees, I'm weak in the knees
        D/F#
and the sky is a painful blue
     Am                       C          D/F#     G
I'd like to look around, but Honey all I see is you.


[Instrumental]

G C G D/F#


[Chorus]

       C                                           G       C         G
And I just want to hold you closer than I've ever held anyone before
               C                             G
You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life
       Am             Am/G        D/F#
Ah but Honey what the hell's it for
        C                                               G
After twenty-three years you'ld think I could find a way
            C           G
to let you know somehow
        Am                Am/G       D/F#                G
That I want to see your smiling face forty five years from now.


[Verse 2]

      G
The summer city lights will soften the night
          D
'Til you'd think that the air is clear
         Am                           C
And I'm sitting with friends where forty-five cents
      D
Will buy another glass of beer
            G
He's got something to say, but I'm so far away
         D
That I don't know who I'm talking to
         Am                             C             D      G
'Cause you just walked in the door, and Honey, All I see is you.


[Chorus]

       C                                           G       C         G
And I just want to hold you closer than I've ever held anyone before
               C                             G
You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life
       Am             Am/G        D/F#
Ah but Honey what the hell's it for
        C                                               G
After twenty-three years you'ld think I could find a way
            C           G
to let you know somehow
        Am                Am/G       D/F#                G
That I want to see your smiling face forty five years from now.

G C G D/F#  G C G D/F#  G

[Verse 3]

       G
So alone in the lights on stage every night
             D/F#
I've been reaching out to find a friend
      Am                  C
Who knows all the words, sings so she's heard
     D/F#
And knows how all the stories end
       G
Maybe after the show she'1l ask me to go
      D/F#
Home with her for a drink or two
         Am                         C            D/F#   G
Now her smile lights her eyes, but Honey, all I see is you.


[Chorus] 

       C                                           G       C         G
And I just want to hold you closer than I've ever held anyone before
               C                             G
You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life
       Am             Am/G        D/F#
Ah but Honey what the hell's it for
        C                                               G
After twenty-three years you'ld think I could find a way
            C           G
to let you know somehow
        Am                Am/G       D/F#                G
That I want to see your smiling face forty five years from now.


       C                                           G       C         G
And I just want to hold you closer than I've ever held anyone before
               C                             G
You say you've been twice a wife and you're through with life
       Am             Am/G        D/F#
Ah but Honey what the hell's it for
        C                                               G
After twenty-three years you'ld think I could find a way
            C           G
to let you know somehow
        Am                Am/G       D/F#                G
That I want to see your smiling face forty five years from now.


G C G D/F#


       Am                     Am/G       D/F#                G
Yes I just want to see your smiling face forty five years from now.
