Song: Don't box me in (Copeland/Ridgway)
Artist: Stewart Copeland
Album: Rumble Fish (from the film with the same name)
Chord analysis: Mats Fagergren , 2016-10-25

comment: Stewart Copeland  (The Police) and Stanard Ridgway made this song together.
the harmony is really odd..and it is difficult to not put on repeat.
My conclusion is that many sections in the music are build upon sus2-chords..

It can be difficult to find this amazing piece of music..
You can find it on You Tube

[verse 1]

Asus2     Fsus2
You walk, I'll run, and
Gsus2                  Fsus2   Gsus2
follow right behind you

I won't remember where I come from

Over there

At the end of the bar
G#sus2          F#sus2
This fish keeps swimming
F#dim/A                       G#dim
In a jar, I feel A tug on the line
G#dim
Which end, Will I be 
Gsus2         G#sus2   Fsus2
on this time?

One day I'll show them
Gsus2                 Fsus2   Gsus2
Just what I'm made of
Asus2     Fsus2
The'll be, A time
Gsus2                 Fsus2     Gsus2
When I won't remember what I was afraid of

[middle 2]

G#sus2    
And I'll be

swimming In the sea
G#sus2     F#sus2
No banging on this glass
F#dim/A             
For me My eyes saw red
F#dim/A              G#dim
When my world turned blue
G#dim
So I'm leaving Everyting 
G#dim      Esus2  D#sus2  Esus2  D#sus2 
that's ....true
Esus2   Dsus2   Esus2   Dsus2  Gsus2  G#sus2
And I'll jump into A brand new skin

And then you won't be able, to
Gsus2     G#sus2 
box me in

A       G  A      G
...go!
E    G A 
A         E                  G  A
There's a few places 'round
A    E               G  A
That I've never been
A          E               G  A
There's an ocean out there
A    E            G  A
That I gotta swim
A        E                G  A
There's a river that flows
A     E           G  A
Right past my door
A E          G  A
I wonder...  I wonder...
A      D/F#  F  G
