4/4| C        C C | G          | C     Csus4 | G         |

      C            Csus4
I'm a billion ages past you
  C               Csus4
A million years behind you too
  Bb                G
A thousand miles up in the air
  Bb                  G    G6  G7
A trillion times I've seen you there

C                    Csus4
Your hair is golden, mine is grey
C                     Csus4
You walk on grass, it turns to hay
Bb                          G
Your blood is blue and your eyes are red
Bb                       G      G6        G7
My body strains, but the nerves are dead

[Chorus 1]
        C               Bb
I can't reach you, I've strained my eyes
        C               Bb
I can't reach you, I've split my sides
        C      G/B    /  Am7 G6 /
I can't reach, tryin' to get on you
Fadd9 C/E  /  Gsus4 F/D     C
See,  feel or hear  from you

| C   | G    | C    | G    |

The distances grow greater now
You drink champagne and past me plough
You fly your plane right over my head
You're so alive and I'm nearly dead

[Chorus 2]
        C               Bb
I can't reach you, with arms outstretched
        C            Bb
I can't reach you, I crane my neck
        C      G/B    /  Am7 G6 /
I can't reach, tryin' to get on you
Fadd9 C/E  /  Gsus4 F/D  /   C
See,  feel or hear  from you

| C   | G    | C    | G     |

[Bridge]
Am                              G         (C/G)     (G)
Once I caught a glimpse of your unguarded, untouched heart
    Am                             G         C/G G
Our fingertips touched and then my mind tore us apart

[Repeat chorus 2]

 | C     | G    |

[Chorus 3]
        D               C
I can't reach you, with arms outstreched
        D            C
I can't reach you, I crane my neck
        D     A/C#   /  Bm7 A6  /
I can't reach tryin' to get on  you
Gadd9 D/F# /  Asus4/E G  D
See,  feel or hear  from you

stealing a tab from another site is one thing. replacing the actual author's name with yours is bloody unforgivable.
