Closest Thing To Heaven  Tears For Fears

[Em2]Twenty eight days of rain, Flash floods in February,

[C]Back in our boats again, Bath water and the baby.

[Em2]What am I gonna do ? There's been a lot of drinking,
[C]Looking at ghosts of you, While all the world is sinking.
[G]Ten thousand [A]miles into the [C]atmosphere,
[G]My body shakes[A], Is there a wel[C]come here ?
Refrain :

[Em(2]      [-]  [Em(2]Closest thing to [C(5]heaven

[C(5]        How do you [Em(2]do it ?
[Em(2]        Closest thing to [C(5]heaven, [Am(7]heaven.
Verse 2 (Repeat Verse 1 Chords) :

Throw you arms round the world, Make love your destination,
Here we go boys and girls, Act like a generation,
Give me that ball and chain, By now it must be hurting
Dragging your feet again,Just like a beast of burden.

When one and one and one and one make two
I know I'm high because I've captured you, yeah

Refrain :

Closest thing to heaven
Yeah, it's you
Closest thing to heaven, heaven


[F2]Look the world right in the [G]eye

[F2]Eat the countries that are [G]making billions
[F2]Sweet as homemade apple [G]pie
[A]Saved by crumbs for all the starving millions, yeah      [C(5]
Closest thing to heaven

Refrain (ad lib) :

[C]  [-]  [Em(2]      [-]  [Em(2]    Closest thing [C]to heaven

How do you do it?
Closest thing to heaven
Closest thing to heaven
