This version was taken from the "Anniversary" album. Sounds great on the
piano; nearly impossible on the guitar.
Cheers,

Message To My Girl  - Split Enz
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
'Anniversary' version.

Transcribed by John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz).


INTRO:
B/C#   C#   B/C#   C#  (x3)

VERSE 1:
B/C#                  C#         B/C#                      C#
 I don't wanna say "I love you",  that would give away too much
Bbm      F/A         Fm/Ab  F/A  Bbm                 Fdim/B  Eb
 To be detatched and precious     the only thing you feel is vicious
B/C#                  C#         B/C#                       C#
 I don't wanna say "I want you"   even though I want you so much
Bbm      F/A         Fm/Ab  F/A  Bbm        Fdim/B  Eb
 Wrapped up in conversation       whispered in a hush
            F#
 Though I'm frightened by the word
              G#
 I think it's time I made it heard

CHORUS:
         C#           F#                C#              G#
 No more empty self-possession  visions swept under the mat
         E             F#                      C#sus4   C#
 It's no New Years Resolution   it's more than that

VERSE 2:
 So I wake up happy, warm in a lovers embrace
 Noone else can touch us while we're in this place
 So I sing it to the world
 A simple message to my girl

CHORUS

SOLO: (verse chords)
 Though I'm frightened by the word
 I think it's time I made it heard
 So I'll sing it to the world
 A simple message to my girl

CHORUS (x1, then...)
 No there's nothing quite as real as the touch of your sweet hand
 I can't spend the rest of my life buried in the sand

INTERLUDE: (B/C#  C#  x12)
 Oh every night I hear you call my name
 I wanna sleep in my dark (bedroom?)
 I have a mind to express my pain
 But I won't get back in your tomb
 I wanna hear, I wanna hear, oh why you're gone
 And every night seems the same song
 Same song...
 I will be humming in my sleep
 I don't wanna say
 I don't wanna say...

OUTRO: (chorus chords)
 I can't spend the rest of my life buried in the sand
