Angel Song  Ezio

Theres alot of righting here but its worth the time to read so enjoy....
The intro and the verse are the same and can be either fingerpicked or strummed
although if you can get your fingers to pick the strings it sounds more effective.
The three opening chords are derivatives of Em,Cmaj7 and Em7.
The best way of fretting them are to use a C shape adding your little finger
to fret the top string at the 10th fret.
Only the bass(E) and top three strings are picked, with the index finger
being used to slide between the 7th and 8th fret
during the chord progression.
Although not all the strings held down are used when fingerpicked they sound OK
when strummed. Note the different finger positions for identical chords and have fun!!!
The chord positions used are as follows:
Em 0 10 9 0 8 10
Cmaj7 8 10 9 0 8 10 (use thumb to fret bass)
Em7 X 0 9 9 8 10
Asus2 002200
Em 022000
Cmaj7 332000
Dsus4 X54035
C 332010
D 200232 (F# in the bass)
G 320033
G? 200033
Em7 020033
Intro Em , Cmaj7, Em7 X2
[Em]I dreamt I was in heaven
and I was sitting in a bar
With[Cmaj7] all the other angels,
you were s[Em7]moking a cigar
[Em]One hand on your hip
and one foot on a chair
And a [Cmaj7]golden ostrich feather
that was [Em7]planted in your hair
Em, Cmaj7, Em7 X2
And if I[Em] really were an angel,
I'd float over your bed
Each [Cmaj7]night a different dream of me
I'd [Em7]plant inside your head
And[Em] if I were an angel,
I tell you what I'd do
I'd a[Cmaj7]ppear in a vision
and I'd [Asus2]give my wings to you
 (--3--2--Em)see note below EmX2,Cmaj7,Asus2,EmX2,Cmaj7,Asus2

At this point use standard chord positions i.e. Em 022000
Cmaj7 332000
Asus2 002200
Also from the end of the verse descend the bass string before you hit
 the Em and Cmaj7 chord i.e.,-3-2-Emx2, -3-2-0-Cmaj7 , Asus2

Asus2 Dsus4 Em (Dsus4 054035)(C shape + little finger)
And I'd say "come closer
[C]Fly into the l[D]ight
G G? Em
And please, please don't be stupid (see note below)
G? Csus2
Let me sleep tonight
G G? Em
And please don't be stupid
G? Csus2
Let me sleep tonight"
G(320033) G?(200033) Em(020033)
NB. "please don't be stupid
G?(200033) Csus2 (032033)
let me sleep tonight" X2
(highlight the bass string run with pick or thumb)
[Em]I dreamt you were a genie
and I found you in the sand
And you were t[Cmaj7]rapped inside a bottle
and I h[Em7]eld you in my hand
And you[Em] said you'd grant me wishes
if you were ever freed
I said "an [Cmaj7]empty head when I go to bed
is [Asus2]all I ever need"
( bass string -3-2-0) Emx2,Cmaj7,Asus2,Emx2,Cmaj7,Asus2
So[Em] I, of course, released you, hoping you would keep your word
And you [Cmaj7]laughed the cruellist laugh that[Em7] I had ever heard
And you [Em]said "about these wishes, it's too late to decide"
But I re[Cmaj7]membered that it was my dream... so I [Asus2]put you back inside
3-2-Emx2 3-2-0 Cmaj7 Asus2 X2 (see note above)
I [Em]dreamt I was a pirate
aboard a pirate ship
And for a[Cmaj7] hand I had a hook
and for a [Em7]heart I had a whip
And you were t[Em]rapped inside your bottle
and I kept you down below
And you b[Cmaj7]egged me to release you...
but I[Asus2] would not let you go
3-2- Em X2 Cmaj7, Asus2 X2
One n[Em]ight I was awoken
while we were out at sea
By a f[Cmaj7]loating appartion
glowing [Em7]incadescently
And [Em]I could see you clearly
as all around was black
And you t[Cmaj7]ore off both your wings, said
"Hey now [Asus2]you can have them back!"
Intrument break played over Em,Cmaj7,Asus2 X2
And you said [Dsus4]"come c[Em]loser
[C]Fly into the li[D]ght
G G? Em
And please, please don't be stupid
G? Csus2
Let me sleep tonight"
G G? Em
No you said "please don't be stupid
G? Csus2
Let me sleep tonight
tonight ... tonight....tonight" 3-2- Em (once only)
