Intro
C C G G
Verse 1
C C G G
I am thinking its a sign
F9 F9
that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images
E E G G
and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned
C C G G
and I, have to specu-late
F9 F9
that god himself did make us into corresponding
E E G G
shapes like puzzle pieces from the clay
C C G G
and true, it may seem like a stretch
F9 F9
but it's thoughts like this that catch my troubled head
E E G G
when you're a-way, when I am missing you to death
C C G G
when you are out there on the road
F9 F9
for several weeks of shows
E E
and when you scan the radio
G G
I hope this song will guide you home


Chorus
C C G G
they will see us waving from such great heights
F9 F9 E E G G
come down now, they'll say
C C G G
but everything looks perfect from far away
F9 F9
come down now
E E G G
but we'll stay

verse 2
C C G G
I tried my best to leave
F9 F9
this all on your machine

but the persistent beat, it
E E G G
sounded thin u-pon listening
C C G G
and that frankly, will not fly
F9 F9
you will hear the shrillest highs
E E
and lowest lows with the win-dows down
G G
when this is guiding you'ome


Chorus
C C G G
they will see us waving from such great heights
F9 F9 E E G G
come down now, they'll say
C C G G
but everything looks perfect from far away
F9 F9
come down now
E E G G
but we'll stay


C C G G
they will see us waving from such great heights
F9 F9 E E G G
come down now, they'll say
C C G G
but everything looks perfect from far away
F9 F9
come down now
E E G G
but we'll stay

End on G G
