Verse 1:
--------

an op[A]en mind, birds [A9]in flight
a bro[A]ken sign, a worl[A9]d of light
its head[A] to head, some b[A9]roken glass
its ful[A]l of lead, its ha[E]rd to pass.

Chorus:
-------

w[E]hy cant i see you for what you a[D]re,
i see whats in front but not too [A]far.

Verse 2:
--------

pushin[A]g broom, diggi[A9]ng holes
a poor[A] mans tune, rever[A9]sing roles
darkened[A] streets, no mor[A9]e light
drunke[A]n fools, taking [E]the night

(Chorus)

You keep playing the verse chords during the part when he sings
"oooh oooh oooh" until he goes higher then you play:

D|3|
G|2|

There will also be a piano part during this, but keep playing the verse chords.

Does more "oooh oooh oooh" then goes into the verse.

Verse 3:
--------

some lo[A]vely shape, a sea [A9]side view
a liv[A]ing mink, a knee[A9]ler pew
a stain g[A]lassed wall, a rai[A9]nbow shine
a mirr[A]ored hall, nothing[E] but time.

(Chorus)

He sings "mmmh mmmmh, mmmmh mmmmh" to the verse chords and ends on
