SONG FOR YOU – Alexi Murdoch
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's one with a bit of finger picking. The picking is sort of half-
muted, don't let the notes ring too long. The intro and the verses follow
the same pattern. The trickiest part is perhaps the interlude thing before
the outroish part. Have fun.

Standard tuning

VERSE1
E                              Amaj7*                       E
  So today I wrote a song for you, cause a day can get so long
                                 Amaj7*
And I know it’s hard to make it through
                                 E     Amaj7*
When you say there’s something wrong

VERSE2
E                           Amaj7*                                  E
   So I’m trying to put it right, cause I want to love you with my heart
                             Amaj7*
All this trying has made me tight
                                 E      Amaj7*
And I don’t know even where to start
                   E   Amaj7*
Maybe that’s a start

VERSE3
E                                Amaj7*
  Before you know it’s a simple game
                                             E
That you play filling up your head with rain
                                          Amaj7*
And you know you’ve been hiding from your pain
                                      E   Amaj7*
In the way, in the way you say your name

CHORUS
              C#m             E/B          Amaj7*
And I see you,    hiding your face in your hands
C#m     E/B             Amaj7*
    Flying so you won’t land
C#m            E/B         EMb5/A#   Amaj7*
    You think no one understands

No one understands

INTERLUDE (repeat intro)
E  Amaj7*  E  Amaj7*

VERSE4
E                                                Amaj7*
  So you hunch your shoulders and you shake your head
                                     E
And your throat is aching but you swear
                                   Amaj7*
No one hurts you, nothing could be sad
                                   E   Amaj7*
Anyway you’re not here enough to care

VERSE5
E                                       Amaj7*
  And you’re so tired you don’t sleep at night
                             E
As your heart is trying to mend
                                    Amaj7*
You keep it quiet but you think you might
                      E   Amaj7*
Disappear before the end

VERSE6
E                                  Amaj7*                      E
  And it’s strange that you cannot find any strength to even try
                               Amaj7*
To find a voice to speak your mind
                                   E  Amaj7*
When you do, all you wanna do is cry
                        E  Amaj7*
Well maybe you should cry

CHORUS
              C#m             E/B          Amaj7*
And I see you     hiding your face in your hands
C#m            E/B       Amaj7*
    Talking ‘bout far-away lands
C#m            E/B        EMb5/A#   Amaj7*
    You think no one understands

Listen to my hands

OUTRO with lyrics
   Bsus4       A6omit3  Bsus4       A6omit3
And all of this life,   moves around you
Bsus4                 A6omit3  Bsus4           A6omit3
      For all that you climb,  you’re standing still
               Esus2  A6omit3
You are moving too
               Esus2  A6omit3
You are moving too
               Esus2  A6omit3
You are moving too
                 E
I will move with you.
