There are many videos of this song which require a capo on 3rd fret. HOWEVER,
these are NOT the original. For the original song, place a capo on the 1st fret.
Also, please check out my cover on the song, performed on saxophone and acoustic guitar :)
Intro: A - Em - G - D X2 (Wake me if you're out there!)
A Bm GThrough the glass in my bedroom window,
(G)In the bushes far below,
A Bm GI thought I saw an unfamiliar shadow,
(G)Among the ones I so clearly know.
Em G AI've been sleeping with the nightlight unplugged,
(A)With a note on the rocking chair,
Em G AThat says I'm dreaming of the life I once loved,
(A)So wake me if you're out there.
G ALiving close to the ground,
Bm EIt's seventh heaven because there are angels all around,
G AAmong my frivolous thoughts,
D G Em AI believe there are beautiful things seen by the astronauts.
D GSo wake me if you're out there!
(Repeat intro, verse, bridge and chorus)
Bm A G I keep my knees black and blue 'cause they often hit the hardwood floor,
A(Wake me if you're out there),
Bm A G AAnd I believe, so I'm not praying to the ceiling anymore.
(Repeat bridge, and then play the chorus TWICE)
G ASo if you're dying to see,
(A) D G Em A D.... (Hold)I guarantee there are angels around your vicinity
