NOTES: C* can be played as C.  It sounds better if played with C*.
       G can be played normally (320003).  This is just how I play it.
       If Fmaj7 sounds weird at first, but try playing it with the CD.

[ Tab from: ]
C*                    G
  If I could open my arms,
Dsus                          F
  And span the length of the isle of Manhattan, 
C*                           G
  I'd bring it to where you are, 
Dsus                    F
  Making a lake of the East River and Hudson. 
C*                     G
  If I could open my mouth, 
Dsus                  F
  Wide enough for a marching band to march out,
C*                          G
  They would make your name sing, 
Dsus                           F
  And bend through alleys and bounce off other buildings. 

Fmaj7   Fmaj7   C   D2
Fmaj7   Fmaj7   C   D2

    C*                      G
  I wish we could open our eyes, 
Dsus               F
  To see in all directions at the same time. 
C*                     G
  Oh what a beautiful view, 
Dsus                  F
  If you were never aware of what was around you. 
C*                         G
  And it is true what you said, 
Dsus                   F
  That I live like a hermit in my own head. 
C*                          G
  But when the sun shines again, 
Dsus                          F
  I'll pull the curtains and blinds to let the light in. 

  Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole. 
C                          D2
  Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound. 
  But while you debate half empty or half full, 
C                          D2
  It slowly rises, your love is gonna drown.
