Intro - Em, E7sus4, C, Em, E7sus4

Verse #1
Em              E7sus4
We can remember swimming in December

C                          Em  E7sus4
Heading for the city lights in 1975

Em                     E7sus4
We share in each other nearer than father

C                    Em              E7sus4
The scent of a lemon drips from your eyes

Bridge #1

We are the people that rule the world

A force running in every boy and girl

All rejoicing in the world

Em            E7sus4
Take me now – we can try

Verse #2 (Same as before)

We lived an adventure love in the summer
Followed the sun till night reminiscing other times of life
For each every other the feeling was stronger
The shock hit eleven – got lost in your eyes


C                      Em
I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me

But I know I try

              C             Em
Are you gonna leave me now

Can’t you be believing now

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse #3
Can you remember and humanise
It was still where we’d energised
Lie in the sand and visualise like it’s 75 again

We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now – we can try

(Repeat Chorus) X2

I know everything about you
You know everything about me
Know everything about us

(Repeat Chorus) X4 till fade

Hi, Good Job but the second "D" chord in the chorus should be 000230. Test it and it sounds better.
