Across The Sea

G   Bm  Em D
You are 18 year old
G         Bm       Em          D
girl who live in small city in Japan.
G         Bm   Em    D
You heard me, on the radio.
G          Bm   Em            D
About one year ago and you wanted to know,
G     Bm  Em           D
all about me, and my hobbies.
G    Bm     Em           D
My favorite food and my birthday

G        Bm        Em        D
Why are you so far away from me?
G       Bm       Em                    D
I need help and you’re way across the sea

C              G          C                    Am
I could never touch you – I think it would be wrong
G    G/F#     Em  D
I’ve got your letter
C      D      G
you’ve got my song

They don’t make stationary like this where I’m from –
so fragile, so refined
So I sniff
and I lick
your envelope and fall to little pieces every time
I wonder what clothes you wear to school
I wonder how you decorate your room
I wonder how you touch yourself
and curse myself for being across the sea

Why are you so far away from me?
I need help and you’re way across the sea

I could never touch you – I think it would be wrong
I’ve got your letter
you’ve got my song

G   G/F#  Em        D          C               D
And then I shaved my head and tried to be a monk
G   G/F#  Em        D          C               D
I thought the older women would like me if i did
G   G/F#  Em        D          C               D
You see mom, I’m a good little boy
G   G/F#  Em        D          C               D
It’s all your fault, momma. It’s all your fault

(Verse Chords)
Goddamn, this business is really lame
I gotta live on an island to find the juice
So you send me
your love
from all around the world
As if I could live on words and dreams and a million screams
oh, how I need a hand in mine to feel.

Why are you so far away from me?
Why are you so far away from me?

I could never touch you – I think it would be wrong
I’ve got your letter
you’ve got my song
I’ve got your letter
you’ve got my song
