Intro -x2-: G  D  C

Verse:
               G        D               C
just open your eyes, no don't be scared at all.
                   G                  D                   C
we'll jump out of aeroplanes and the lakes will break our fall,
                G             D                 C
no don't make a sound because i'll be with you the whole way down.
C                           Cmaj7
and i told you everything.

Verse:
                      G               D            C       
and i know it's quite soon but you've got a lovely heart
                            G         D                   C
and i hope that you feel it too and a flame follows these sparks.
                   G            D                  C
just don't tell me lies because i've been let down too many times.
C                           Cmaj7
and i told you everything.

Chorus:
G                                       Bm7    
so i'll spend the night looking into your eyes
                          Em7                C    
because i want to remember them if i ever fall blind
G                                        Bm7
we could jump in the ocean and sink like stones
           Em7                                         C    
but that's ok with me baby 'cause i'll be next to your bones

Interlude: G  D  C

Verse:
                              G            D            C
we can spend the rest of our lives, by the old reservoir.
                    G          D                C
looking at satellites, waiting for a shooting star.
                          G           D                C
although my wish has been made and i found you, i'll just wish you stay
C                              Cmaj7
because i love your everything

Chorus:
G                                        Bm7
so i'll spend the night looking into your eyes
                           Em7                 C    
because i want to remember them if i ever fall blind
G                                       Bm7
we could jump in the ocean and sink like stones but that's ok with me baby 'cause
                     C    
i'll be next to your bones

    If you transpose this song to +5, it makes this alot easier

  2. Isn’t “Bones” from It’s Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW – EP?
