         word     leaving

            for another one

Em       d                               G

         you say there's peace in sleep

     Em           G         d
but you dream of lo-ove instead   oh

     C                Em
the heartache you'll find can bring

G                    Em        d
more pain than the blistering sun

Em     (d)            G
    but oh, when you fall

* is a strum, to give some idea of timing in the verses

small case letters are individual notes, (not chords)

h is a hammer on

p is a pull off

(C)D, (C)Em, etc. means strum the C real quick, then change *immediately*
to the next chord...sometimes she misses out the C entirely

in the intro & outro, emphasise the low notes in the D (=?D5 (xx023x))
