Closest Thing to Heaven by Tears for Fears

Verse 1:

Twenty eight days of rain, Flash floods in February,

Back in our boats again, Bath water and the baby.

What am I gonna do ? There's been a lot of drinking,

Looking at ghosts of you, While all the world is sinking.

G	     A              C
Ten thousand miles into the atmosphere,

G             A               C        
My body shakes, Is there a welcome here ?

Refrain :

Em(2) - Em(2)		 C(5)
	Closest thing to heaven

C(5)	           Em(2)
	How do you do it ?

Em(2)                    C(5)    Am(7)
	Closest thing to heaven, heaven.

Verse 2 (Repeat Verse 1 Chords) :

Throw you arms round the world, Make love your destination,
Here we go boys and girls, Act like a generation,
Give me that ball and chain, By now it must be hurting
Dragging your feet again,Just like a beast of burden.

When one and one and one and one make two
I know I'm high because I've captured you, yeah

Refrain :

Closest thing to heaven
Yeah, it's you
Closest thing to heaven, heaven


F2   			    G
Look the world right in the eye

F2                         G
Eat the countries that are making billions

F2                      G
Sweet as homemade apple pie

A						         C(5)
Saved by crumbs for all the starving millions, yeah
				        Closest thing to heaven

Refrain (ad lib) :

C - Em(2) - Em(2)             C
		Closest thing to heaven

How do you do it?
Closest thing to heaven
Closest thing to heaven

I feel like most, if not all, of the A chords are really A7sus4 (x02030) and the C is probably a modified Cmaj7 like x35433
otherwise the rest plays well, thanks!
