"show me how you do that trick...the one that makes me scream"
she said, "the one that makes me laugh", she said, and threw her arms around 
my neck..
show me how you do it and i'll promise you a promise that
i'll run away with you--i'll run away with you...

spinning on that dizzy air, i kissed her face, i kissed her hair.
dreamed of all the different ways i had to make her glow.
"why are you so far away?" she said "why won't you ever know
that i'm in love with you.  i am in love with you..

notes:
the solo and any lead for that matter have great amounts of sonic
noise.  go freestyle on that.  all i could write was the notes,
and i probably got some of those wrong, too.

Since you tabbed the song like a step down from the original cure version, during the "soft and only" part your f#m should be an Em, and your G should be an F. Your C is right but that should be followed by a D when you get to "sitting in the water.."
