(Repeated throughout the verses)

I want to grab a stranger's hand and
Hold it as tightly as I can and
I will tell by their reaction if
They're like me or if I am crazy
When the lights of the city hit my
Eyes on the plane looking out the window
I am consumed by a comforting notion
That you are there and
I am welcome
If our miles have added up to
A giant pile of distance that we
Cannot reach past, climb, or conquer
Will you dig a
Tunnel to me?

Every move suspends an action
Any attempt to engage will push away
What you want becomes a magnet
Opposing pulls
Never meeting
Can you combine a friend and mother?
Can you blend a dad and brother?
Must we have to pick one or the other?
Will we know this or always wonder?
(Always wonder)
You can tell what you've done to me
To be seen in hell from your place in a tree
Always helping
Ever loving
But will you always
Be above me

(*I haven't figured out the solo yet*)


I won't ignore nor will not forget
The kindness that's been done to me
You are the surest and safest bet that
I could ask for
So I'm asking
Soon we will be side by side the
Plane will land and the wings will glide
The bags in hand and
The car will drive
Into you
I will arrive
By your side
By your side

(End on A)

You have the notes right but I'm fairly sure that he plays this in open A tuning (from high to low): EDbAEAE

You can hear him hitting a lot of open strings and this tuning will allow you to get the same sound.

A fair assessment! I don't have much experience playing outside of standard tuning myself.
