Intro - x2 -: G D C G D

Verse:
G                    D
I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles
       C                          G
in our eyes are mirror images and when 
                D
we kiss they're perfectly aligned
    G              D
And I have to speculate that God himself
    C                          G
did make us into corresponding shapes like
       D
puzzle pieces from the clay
G                       D
True it may seem like a stretch, but
                            C 
its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
                 G              D
head when you're away when I am missing you to death
G                             D
When you are out there on the road for
                 C 
several weeks of shows, and when you scan
        G             D
the radio I hope this song will guide you home

Chorus:
G                            D
They will see us waving from such great
                C                 G    D
heights, "come down now" they'll say
    G                             D
but everything looks perfect from far away,
       C                     G    D
"come down now", but we'll stay

Verse:
G                  D
I tried my best to leave this song on your
   C                               G
machine but the persistent beat it sounded
     D
thin upon listening
G                     D
That frankly will not fly. you will hear
              C 
the shrillest highs and lowest lows with
       G                   D
the windows down when this is guiding you home

Chorus:
G                            D
They will see us waving from such great
                C                 G    D
heights, "come down now" they'll say
    G                             D
but everything looks perfect from far away,
       C                     G    D
"come down now", but we'll stay

Outro - x2 -: G D C G D
