Freddie Stevenson ~ Blind Architect

Beautiful new song that he's done acoustically on a podcast & 
is up on his myspace/reverb nation. It's (unusually for Freddie) written 
in standard, meaning that I can actually work it out. 
Should be on his 3rd album, hopefully... 

Chords

Fsus2   [x87077] or [x87070] Can't quite hear which he's using but I think 
                             the former
C       [x32013] for the intro and the first time in each verse, then 
                 [x32010] for the other two times
Am7     [x02213]
Em6     [022013]
Fmaj7   [xx3210]
Csus2/G [330010]
Gsus4   [320010]
Csus4   [x33010]
E7      [076700]
E7/A    [570700]
A?      [570500] (no idea if this is right. It's the same chord that stumped 
                  me in the interlude of Easy Now)

Throughout the song the D string in the C & Gsus4 chords and the G string in
the Fmaj7 are hammered on (middle finer), listen for it & you can hear it. 

The Em6 is pulled off to Em every time it's played
by removing the index finger from the B string.

In the intro at the end of ever second bar it's played, 
the D string is dropped from the Fsus2 & from the C.

Capo 5

Intro

Fsus2  C (x4)

Verse
Fsus2            C
It's that time of year
        Am7                 Em6 
When the signs of life reappear
       Fmaj7                   Csus2/G  Gsus4
And the tide will be coming in soon
       Fmaj7        Gsus4            C Csus2 C
We must harvest the past years of the moon


Chorus (same as verse chords)
It's that time of day
When you & I have nothing left to say
We must find a new way to start
Oh it was a blind architect who built the heart 

Play intro chords x2

Verse
It's that time of night
When the dead start coming back to life
And the stars burn bright in the gloom
And I am wreathed in these memories of you

Chorus
It's that time again
We must ask the old question
How did we grow so far apart?
Ask the blind architect who built the heart

How did we grow so far apart?
        Fmaj7           Csus2/G    Gsus4
How did we grow so far apart?

Ask the blind architect who built the heart
