F     133211
G     320003
Am    x02210
C     x32010
G7    320001
G?    320000


           F    G    Am    C G 
it was the strangest thing today
          G7                G?        F  G   
i saw new footprints in abandoned pathways
Am         C      G                     G7       G?
beneath forgotten undergrowth something stirring again
           F  G   Am  C     G
you were a single red blood cell
      G7               G?      F          G Am
but i lost you in this knot of capillaries
             C           G             G7        G?
but you were bringing me oxygen when i needed it most in the 

Dm
smoke.

and you were always


Dm                  
as far as mongolia, as close as my clothes

Am                       
your presence pervading, but it still never shows

C                                    F
as close as the answer i never quite know, or can’t quite remember

Dm
your distance insidious, as soft as a blow

Am
your shadow is with me wherever i go

C                                                    F
it’s on the tip of my tongue but still i never quite know, or can’t quite remember

i don’t quite remember

--------------------------------


Verse two is the same as verse one.


--------------------------------


the forced proximity of a million different mike leigh movies 
makes me long for the fresh air of a familiar face
and not the violence of loneliness, nor the unease of surrounded seclusion
i keep nearly missing you around corners and in passing trains


--------------------------------

The chorus is the same, cept the end, where it goes:

--------------------------------


Dm
your distance insidious, as soft as a blow

Am
your shadow is with me wherever i go

C                                                    
it’s on the tip of my tongue, it's on the tip of my- 

-------------------------------

F             
    that you weren’t so far away
G                  Dm                 
    that you were never that far away

It's really hard to place the chords because some words are sung quickly
and some very slowly but you get the idea, hopefully :)
