My favorite song so far from the new album 'Songs Of Innocence' released yesterday (09.09.2014).
Tried to give it ago and I think it sounds good. Tell what you think !


[Verse 1]
C Am
The star,
Em D
that gives us light
C Am
Has been gone a while
Em D
But it's not an illusion
C Am
The ache
Em D
In my heart
C Am Em D
Is so much a part of who I am

[Pre-Chorus]
G Am
Something in your eyes
Em D
Took a thousand years to get here

G Am
Something in your eyes
Em D
Took a thousand years, a thousand years

[Chorus]
C Am Em D
Hold me close, hold me close and don't let me go.
C Am Em D
Hold me close like I'm someone that you might know
C Am Em D
Hold me close the darkness just lets us see
C Am
Who we are
Em D
I've got your life inside of me

C Am Em D x2
Iris... Iris...

[Verse]
C Am Em D C Am
Once we are born, we begin to forget
Em D
The very reason we came
C Am
But you
Em D
I'm sure I've met
C Am
Long before the night the stars went out
Em D
We're meeting up again

[Chorus]
C Am Em D
Hold me close, hold me close and don't let me go.
C Am Em D
Hold me close like I'm someone that you might know
C Am Em D
Hold me close the darkness just lets us see
C Am
Who we are
Em D
I've got your life inside of me

C Am Em D x2
Iris... Iris...

[MIDDLE]
G Am Em D
The stars are bright but do they know
G Am Em D
The universe is beautiful but cold

[OUTRO/CHORUS]
C
You took me by the hand
Am Em
I thought that I was leading you
D C
But it was you made me your man
Am
Machine
Em
I dream
D
Where you are
C Am
Iris standing in the hall
Em D
She tells me I can do it all
C Am
Iris wakes to my nightmares
Em D
Don't fear the world it isn't there
C Am
Iris playing on the strand
Em D
She buries the boy beneath the sand,
C Am Em
Iris says that I will be the death of her
D
It was not me

C Am Em D x2
Iris... Iris...

Free yourself, to be yourself if only you could see yourself

Free yourself, to be yourself if only you could see...
