Every Breath You Take

Tuning: Dropped D DADGBe

I know there are many versions of this song here 
already but this version is WAY easier to play 
and it should be just about 100% accurate.

Bridge:

  E
  Since you've gone, I've been lost without a trace,
  F#
  I dream at night I can only see your face,
  E
  I look around but it's you I can't replace,
  F#
  I feel so cold and I long for your embrace,
  E                         G#
  I keep crying baby, baby please.

Easier, but not very accurate. I feel there's some sadness missing from the arpeggios by simplifying them. They come across as too stark.
