So today I wrote a song for you, ‘cos a day can get so long And I know it’s hard to make it through When you say there’s something wrong So I’m trying to put it right, ‘cos I want to love you with my heart All this trying has made me tired And I don’t know even where to start Maybe that’s a start Before you know it’s a simple game That you play filling up your head with rain And you know you’ve been hiding from your pain In the way, in the way you say your name CHORUS And I see you hiding your face in your hands Flying so you won’t land You think no one understands No one understands (repeat main riff) So you hunch your shoulders and you shake your head And your throat is aching but you swear No one hurts you, nothing could be said Anyway you’re not here enough to care And you’re so tired you don’t sleep at night As your heart is trying to mend You keep it quiet but you think you might Disappear before the end And it’s strange that you cannot find any strength to even try To find a voice to speak your mind When you do, all you want to do is cry Well maybe you should cry And I see you hiding your face in your hands Talking ‘bout far-away lands You think no one understands Listen to my hands

Guitar 2 If you have a second guitar, the additional harmony line is based on two strings played alternately. This can be (absolute fret positions used):
B---5--5----5--5--- --4--4-----4--4--- AND---9--9-----9--9-----|G--6--6--6-6--6--6- -4--4--4--4--4--4- -----9--9--9--9--9--9---|
For the ambitious – play both parts on the SAME guitar… it CAN be done!
