Chords used:
A     (x02220)     D     (000232)
Esus  (x22200)     C#m   (x46654)
B     (x24442)     E     (022100)

I feel that with the capo on the 7th fret it sounds closer to the original recording. Enjoy!

A      B               E          B
Light struck from the lemon tree
D       C#m       B               A           E      Esus E  
What if I’d never seen hysterical light from Eugene?
A     E       B           C#m             B
Lemon yoghurt, remember I pulled at your shirt
I dropped the ashtray on the floor
                     E       Esus E
I just wanted to be near you

A       B              E          B
Emerald Park, wonders never cease
D           C#m           B                       A            E   Esus E
The man who taught me to swim, he couldn't quite say my first name
A       E         B            C#m          B
Like a Father he led community water on my head
And he called me “Subaru”
                      E       Esus E
And now I want to be near you

E     B     C#m    B        A                       B
Since I was old enough to speak I've said it with alarm
E    B      C#m      B            A
Some part of me was lost in your sleeve
Where you hid your cigarettes
No I’ll never forget
                   E       Esus E     
I just want to be near you

A       B               E          B
Still I pray to what I cannot see
D       C#m        B                   A              E   Esus E
In the sprinkler I mark the evidence known from the start
A         E             B                  C#m                  B
From the bed near your death, and all the machines that made a mess
Far away the falcon flew
                  E       Esus E
Now I want to be near you

A      B            E            B
What’s left is only bittersweet
D       C#m        B                    A          E     Esus E
For the rest of my life, admitting the best is behind me
A       E           B                 C#m              B
Now I’m drunk and afraid, wishing the world would go away
What’s the point of singing songs
                       E        Esus E
If they’ll never even hear you?
