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.

Song:   Closer

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
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/peter_himmelman/closer_tab.html ]
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]
