Himmelman Peter - Closer tab

Here's what I've come up with for Peter Himmelman's "Closer" off the album
"Flown this Acid World."  It is not perfect, but I think it sounds very close
to the recording. There is one line of lyrics which I am not sure of. I did not
include the lyrics at the end of the song which appear in the background.

D RIFF 1: D Dsus2--H--Dsus4 H=Hammer on D RIFF 2: D Dsus2--H--Dsus4 --> This time stay on the Dsus4 until the Cadd9 VERSE 1: I [D] went out in the street for a walk in the night. Had to [Cadd9] loosen my head, it's been wound too tight. I've been [G] standing on the edge After picking a fight with [D] you. [D RIFF 1] Some[D]times my world seems so damn small, I [Cadd9] can't think of nothin' 'cept for me at all. And my [G] thoughts surround me like a prison wall its [Cadd9] true. CHORUS: I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] VERSE 2: It[D] takes all my strength to slow myself down, My [Cadd9] thoughts are screaming, I can't hear a sound. Some[G]times I wish there was no one around but you. [D RIFF 1] Oh [D] tell me you know what I'm talking about Some[Cadd9]times you're the sail? of my confusion and doubt. And then it [G] hurts so bad, you just wanna shout [Cadd9] "I'm through." CHORUS: I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] gotta get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] BRIDGE: [Em] Please excuse these things I might have [Am] said. [Em] You see they come from my frustration, not my [Am] head. [G] And the last thing [C] that I wanna [Em] do, is [G] create a [C] distance, [Em] between me and [Am] you. (Little bend on 8th fret of high E) CHORUS: I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] gotta get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] gotta get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] VERSE 3: Well there seem [D] to be two states of mind, [Cadd9] One is visionary, the other blind And the [G] best that we can hope to find, Is to meet somewhere in [D RIFF 1] between. Well, the [D] night air has pulled me back a bit [Cadd9] Just when I was about to quit [G] Trying to get a candle lit That lets me [Cadd9] see what can't be seen. CHORUS: I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] gotta get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] gotta get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] gotta get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] I [D RIFF 2] wanna get closer to you now. [Cadd9] [G] Same chords are used while he does his background thing. Then - OUTRO:
