Come to My Window
   -- Melissa Etheridge

Chorus

G    C     D
Come to my window
G     C       D
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
G    C     D
Come to my window
             G C D
I'll be home soon.

C G D
C                G
I could dial the numbers
        D
Just to listen to your breath
C             G
I would stand inside my hell
    D
And hold the hand of death
C                  G
You don't know how far I'd go
        D
Just to ease this precious ache
C                  G
You don't know how much I'd give
        D
Or how much I can take
              Em C D
Just to reach you
              Em C D
Just to reach you
            Em C D
Oh to reach you

Chorus

Keeping my eyes open
I can not afford to sleep
Giving away promises
I know that I can't keep
Nothing fills the blackness
That has seeped into my chest
I need you in my blood
I am foresaking all the rest
Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Oh to reach you

Chorus

Em
I don't know what they think
C
I don't care what they say
Am                                D
What do they know about this love anyway

Chorus

Melissa plays this song in the key of 'G'; I put a capo on the 3rd or 4th
fret to accommodate my *maleness* (this puts it in the key of 'Bb' (3rd
fret) or B (4th fret)):


                  Come to My Window            -- Melissa Etheridge


CHORUS: (softly and slowly as INTRO)
G    C     Am7    D
Come to my window
 G       C    Am7          D            G
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
     C     Am7      D
Come to my window, I'll be home soon

 C  G  D  (4 times, aggressively)

C                 G
I would dial the numbers
         D
Just to listen to your breath
    C                G
And I would stand inside my hell
     D
And hold the hand of death
 C                  G
You don't know how far I'd go
         D
Just to ease this precious ache
 C                  G
You don't know how much I'd give
    D
Or how much I can take
         Em       C         D                 Em       C  D
Just to reach you, just to reach you, oh, to reach you

CHORUS

Keeping my eyes open, I cannot afford to sleep
Giving away promises, I know that I can't keep
Nothing fills the blackness that has seeped into my chest
I need you in my blood, I am foresaking all the rest
Just to reach you, just to reach you, oh, to reach you

CHORUS

Em
  I don't care what they they think
Em Dsus2 C
          I don't care what they say
C G Am                                   D   Dsus4 D
      What do they know about this love anyway

G  C  Am7  D  (twice, arpeggiated, not strummed)

  C    G          D
Come, come to my window, I'll be home
 C             G           D
I'll be home, I'll be home,  I'm comin' home

CHORUS
