Song structure/lyrics:


Intro: play intro/verse/chorus tab x1]


Verse 1: [use intro/verse/chorus tab throughout]
Things seem so much better when, theyre not part of your close surroundings
Like words in a letter sent, amplified by the distance
Possibilities and sweeter dreams, sights and sounds calling from far away

Pre-chorus: [use pre-chorus tab x1]
Calling from far away

Chorus: [use intro/verse/chorus tab throughout]
I didn't know you then, now did I girl?
I couldn't hear you singing softly to me
I didn't know you then, now did I girl?
I didn't see the brave girl so near me
I didn't know you then, now did I girl?
I couldn't hear you singing softly to me, singing softly to me
I wanted a mystery that couldn't be solved
I wanted a puzzle with pieces missing
I wanted a story that couldn't be told
Only the fishing part of fishing
I didn't know you then, now did I girl?
I couldn't hear you singing softly to me
I didn't know you then, now did I girl?
I didn't see the brave girl so near me
I didn't know you then, now did I girl?
I couldn't hear you singing softly to me, singing softly to me
And now I find it was you all the time
I'm in love again, it's too late now...

Clearly wrong. It's not accurate however, the correct tabs were posted in the comments. Posted tabs just don't match the song. nineteen twenty.

Lack of accuracy. not very accurate, it can be played without capo, the guitar pro version is better and is much more complete overall. at least this one has lyrics
