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

So I’m trying to put it right, ‘cos I want to love you with my heart
All this trying has made me tired
And I don’t know even where to start

Maybe that’s a start

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

CHORUS
And I see you hiding your face in your hands
Flying so you won’t land
You think no one understands
No one understands

(repeat main riff)

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

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

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

And I see you hiding your face in your hands
Talking ‘bout far-away lands
You think no one understands
Listen to my hands

Guitar 2
If you have a second guitar, the additional harmony line is based on two strings played 
alternately.  This can be (absolute fret positions used):

B---5--5----5--5---  --4--4-----4--4---  AND---9--9-----9--9-----|
G--6--6--6-6--6--6-  -4--4--4--4--4--4-  -----9--9--9--9--9--9---|

For the ambitious – play both parts on the SAME guitar… it CAN be done!
