Seal - Kiss From A Rose tab

From: KEANJ@agresearch.cri.nz (John Kean)

Hi all,

Here's my attempt at Seals "Kiss from a Rose".  This was transcribed from the 
radio, so it was hard to tell if the proper chords were plain E, or E5, or Em. 
 For convenience I've just called them E unless I am otherwise sure.
Also, the lyrics are a little murky.  I got these from the lyric ftp site, but 
personally, I prefer the song to be about a "kiss from a rose on the grave".  
Much more meaningful, huh!

Well, here goes....

VERSE 1:
E     E                    Cmaj7     D           E
There used to be a graying time all alone on the sea
E     E        Cmaj7        D            E
You became the light on the dark side of me
E      E       Cmaj7        D                  E
Love remains a drug gets me high, that's how I feel
        E                 Em       Cmay7         D
Did you know that when it snows my eyes become enlarged
        Cmaj7          D            E      E
And the light that you shine can be seen


CHORUS:
  E                      Cmaj7       D           E
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
    E                     Cmaj7       D        E
The more I get of you the stranger it feels, yeah
E             C          D        C              D            E      E

VERSE 2:
There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny
Won't you tell me is that healthy, babe?
But did you know that when it snows, my eyes become enlarged
And the light that you shine can be seen


CHORUS
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
The more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom, a light hits the gloom on the grey
