G   Bm  Em D        G        Bm      C       D       G
You are 18 year old girl who live in small city in Japan.
    Bm    Em         D
You heard me on the radio.
 G        Bm     C          D         G
About one year ago and you wanted to know,
     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           Am   
I could never touch you - I think it would be wrong
     G    Gb       Em     D
Oh - I've got your letter
C      D       G
you've got my song

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


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           Am
I could never touch you - I think it would be wrong
G    Gb       Em     D
I've got your letter
C      D      G
you've got my song

I thought the older women would like me if i did

Goddamn, this business is really lame
        Bm         C         D        G
I gotta live on an island to find the juice
       Bm   Em      D
So you send me your love

from all around the world
        C       D     G         Bm           C       D
As if I could live on words and dreams and a million screams
    G     Bm     C       D       G
oh, how I need a hand in mine to feel.
G       Bm         Am        Em    D
Why are you so far away from me?
G       Bm         Am        Em
Why are you so far away from me?

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
