  [Am]Nothing could bring me cl[F]oser.
  [G]Nothing could bring m[G]e [Am]near.
  [Am]Where is the road I fo[F]llow
  [G]Leaving, [G]le[Am]ave
  It's [Am]Under, under, [F]under my feet
  The [G]sea spread out there [G]be[Am]fore me.
[G]  [Am]Better I go, and the [F]land touches sea.
  [G]There is _________ [G]in [Am]what I believe.
(this really stands out so put pickup selector switch in MIDDLE position)
[C]   That's what keeps me,
[Am]   That's what keeps me,
   [C]That's what keeps me d[G]own.
   To [C]leave it, to [Am]leave [G]it,
F F* F
Leave it all behind.
The following verses and choruses are played the same
sometimes with the Guitar riff and the chords, sometimes
just chords. If you have two guitars (and two people)
play both!!
Shifting the dream
Nothing could bring me further from rougher tide.
We're shifting the dream.
It's charging the sea.
I know where I marked the signs.
Suffer dreams of a world gone mad
I like it like that and I know it.
I know him well, ugly and sweet
A temper madness who believed in extreme.
That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me down
I say they aren't gonna like me
I say they don't know thier plane
Never left the ground.
(Chorus) x 1
Lift me, lift me,
I'll attain my dream.
I lost myself, I lost the,
Heartache calling me.
I lost myself in sorrow.
I lost myself in pain.
I lost myself in gravity.
Memory, leave, leave, leave.
(Chorus) x 2
In my hands my eyes are still
I walk into the sea
Shoot myself in a different place
And leave it.
Wait for this to take me,
It longed for my release.
Waited for the calling,
To leave, leave
Leave, leave, leave, leave
Leavin', Leavin'
[----]     From: Bob (
I was just wondering if you were sure about those chords on the tab
because I have a much easier way that I think sounds just as good if not
better. I'm not sure on the name of the chords but I'll try and
describre them to you.
----3------------5---3-         this is the "nothing could bring me closer part"
---6---3---6--------6---3---------               this is the "thats what keeps me part"
--------------------------------------               you can figure out the timing and how many times to strum each
--------------------------------------              note on your own
