Letter to Hermione - David Bowie
(from Space Oddity album)

This is one of the most beautiful songs from Bowie. I've been looking for
it for some time but I haven't been able to find it so I thougt I'd figure
it out myself. If you listen to the record you can hear that there are more
than one guitar, or at least a twelve-string.

Verse1. Am7 C/G The hand that wrote this letter Sweeps the pillow clean Am7 C/G So rest your head and read a treasured dream Em7sus4 Em* I care for no one else but you C/G* I tear my soul to cease the pain Em7sus4* I think maybe you feel the same Em* What can we do? C/G* Em7sus4 I'm not quite sure what we're supposed to do Em* So I've been writing just for you Verse2. They say your life is going very well They say you sparkle like a different girl But something tells me that you hide When all the world is warm and tired You cry a little in the dark Well so do I I'm not quite sure what you're supposed to say But I can see it's not okay Verse3. He makes you laugh He brings you out in style He treats you well And makes you up real fine And when he's strong He's strong for you And when you kiss It's something new But did you ever call my name Just by mistake? I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do So I'll just write some love to you =============================================================================== Johan Sundin | Felix qui potuit rerum | cognoscere causas. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Any corrections are welcome! ===============================================================================
