Sing To Me (Boo Hewerdine / Rosalie Deighton / Jo Youle)

This is Boo's version from "Harmonograph" as opposed to Rosalie Deighton's version on 
Days". The secret of this song is the common tones between the chords used in the verse. 
works better if you don't use the low E string apart from the Gsus4.

Standard tuning, no capo.

Intro -
Am F C Gsus4 x 2

Am                               F
     Here's a song to break your heart
                           C
     Though these are only words
                         Gsus4
     From someone else's dream
Am                            F
     You can hear them in the dark
                               C
     With the sheets over your head
                               Gsus4
     Believing every word they said
          F
     Only you know what it means
          G
     Only you know what it means

Chorus:
C                       Em
     Sing to me Sing to me
                    Am
     A million lullabies
                          F
     Of a love that never dies
                          C
     For a moment I'll be free
                        Em
     Sing to me Sing to me
                           Am
     The ghosts of summers gone
                           F
     Before the world went wrong

Am                               F
     Here's a song to break your heart
                                  C
     While you are sitting on the stairs
                              FGsus4
     Should be taking out the trash
Am                          F
     And it's really such a drag
                  C
     Transistor radio
                     Gsus4
     And if I let it go
                            F
     Let it fall and let it crash
                            G
     Let it fall and let it crash

Chorus (variant):

C                       Em
     Sing to me Sing to me
                   Am
     The pretty alibis
                  F
     Honey coated lies
                  C
     I wanna be deceived
                        Em
     Sing to me Sing to me
                              Am
     Let them come wave after wave
                               F
     All those Jesus could not save
                      C
     You know what it means

Bridge: Same chords as chorus, using strings 2 & 3 as the bass holding the original 
and strings 4 & 5 striking on third and fourth beats in the bar. The common tones stay on 
beats, and the solo is made up from the changing chords in the bass (v lovely)

Chorus:

     Sing to me Sing to me
     A million lullabies
     Of a love that never dies
     For a moment I'll be free
     Sing to me Sing to me
     The ghosts of summers gone
     Before the world went wrong
     Sing to me
     Sing to me
