This is a song by Switchfoot that's really fun to play on the guitar. I tabbed it based 
off of listening to the track as well as watching youtube videos of Jon Foreman playing 
it...so it's very accurate. :) Enjoy!

There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake in the infinite cold
But you sing to me over and over and over again

Sing to me of a song of the stars
Of a galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again

Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again
