Ezio – Angel Song tab

Theres alot of righting here but its worth the time to read so enjoy....

The intro and the verse are the same and can be either fingerpicked or strummed
although if you can get your fingers to pick the strings it sounds more effective.
The three opening chords are derivatives of Em,Cmaj7 and Em7.
The best way of fretting them are to use a C shape adding your little finger
to fret the top string at the 10th fret.
Only the bass(E) and top three strings are picked, with the index finger
being used to slide between the 7th and 8th fret
during the chord progression.
Although not all the strings held down are used when fingerpicked they sound OK
when strummed. Note the different finger positions for identical chords and have fun!!!

             The chord positions used are as follows:

                    Em     0 10 9 0 8 10
                    Cmaj7  8 10 9 0 8 10 (use thumb to fret bass)
                    Em7    X 0  9 9 8 10
                    Asus2  002200
                    Em     022000
                    Cmaj7  332000
                    Dsus4  X54035
                    C      332010
                    D      200232     (F# in the bass)
                    G      320033
                    G?     200033
                    Em7    020033

    Intro Em , Cmaj7, Em7  X2

I dreamt I was in heaven

and I was sitting in a bar
With all the other angels,
you were smoking a cigar
One hand on your hip

and one foot on a chair
And a golden ostrich feather
that was planted in your hair

 Em, Cmaj7, Em7  X2

And if I really were an angel,

I'd float over your bed
Each night a different dream of me
I'd plant inside your head
And if I were an angel,

I tell you what I'd do
I'd appear in a vision
and I'd give my wings to you

(--3--2--Em)see note below      EmX2,Cmaj7,Asus2,EmX2,Cmaj7,Asus2

At this point use standard chord positions i.e. Em     022000
                                                Cmaj7  332000
                                                Asus2  002200

Also from the end of the verse descend the bass string before you hit
the Em and Cmaj7 chord i.e.,-3-2-Emx2, -3-2-0-Cmaj7 , Asus2

Asus2        Dsus4  Em        (Dsus4 054035)(C shape + little finger)
And I'd say "come closer
C             D
Fly into the light
             G     G?         Em
And please, please don't be stupid     (see note below)
       G?       Csus2
Let me sleep tonight
     G     G?           Em
And please don't be stupid
       G?        Csus2
Let me sleep tonight"

    G(320033)  G?(200033)        Em(020033)
NB.  "please     don't     be      stupid

                  G?(200033) Csus2  (032033)
      let      me    sleep           tonight"     X2

(highlight the bass string run with pick or thumb)

I dreamt you were a genie

and I found you in the sand
And you were trapped inside a bottle
and I held you in my hand

And you said you'd grant me wishes

if you were ever freed
I said "an empty head when I go to bed
is all I ever need"

( bass string  -3-2-0)  Emx2,Cmaj7,Asus2,Emx2,Cmaj7,Asus2

So I, of course, released you, hoping you would keep your word
        Cmaj7                           Em7
And you laughed the cruellist laugh that I had ever heard
And you said "about these wishes, it's too late to decide"
        Cmaj7                                 Asus2
But I remembered that it was my dream... so I put you back inside

 3-2-Emx2    3-2-0 Cmaj7  Asus2     X2    (see note above)

I dreamt I was a pirate

aboard a pirate ship
And for a hand I had a hook
and for a heart I had a whip
And you were trapped inside your bottle

and I kept you down below
And you begged me to release you...
but I would not let you go

 3-2- Em X2  Cmaj7, Asus2  X2

One night I was awoken

while we were out at sea
By a floating appartion
glowing incadescently
And I could see you clearly

as all around was black
And you tore off both your wings, said
"Hey now you can have them back!"

          Intrument break played over Em,Cmaj7,Asus2 X2

             Dsus4  Em
And you said "come closer
C              D
Fly into the light
            G     G?        Em
And please, please don't be stupid
       G?     Csus2
Let me sleep tonight"
             G      G?       Em
No you said "please don't be stupid
       G?      Csus2
Let me sleep tonight

tonight ... tonight....tonight"        3-2- Em (once only)
