I Want the World to Stop  Belle and Sebastian

is quite hard to put the chords exactly where they belong, so I put it between
[]'s and you listen to the song to figure out the beats, specially the bridges,
that begin in the end of the verses.
Intro: Am Dm C E 4x
I want the w[Am]orld to stop (I want the [Dm]world to stop)
Give me the mor[C]ning (give me the u[E]nderstanding)
I want the w[Am]orld to stop (I want the [Dm]world to stop)
Give me the m[C]orning, give me the [E]afternoon
The [Am]night, the n[A]ight
[Dm] Let me step out [G]of my shell
That's w[C]rapped in sheets of m[E]ilky winter dis[Am]order
[Dm] Let me feel the [G]air again, the t[C]alk of friends
The m[E]ind of someone my [Am]equal[G] [F] [E]
E E [Am Dm C E | Am Dm C E Am A]
I want the world to stop . . .
[ Tab from: bttp:// ] 
[Dm G C E Am | Dm G C E] 
Tinseltown has followed me from Tinseltown to
Grey adorable city by the docks
Girls will walk in moving air
The sun hangs low, the girls don't care
As they paint themselves at dusk
bridge: Am G F, E Dm, C Bm, E
[Am] [Dm] [C] [E]  
[Am] [Dm] [C] [E] [Am] [A] 
I want the world to stop . . .
[Dm G C E Am | Dm G C E] 
Towns' and cities' populations up and grow
The workers move to the suburbs
In between I watch and go
I run alongside rush hour traffic
A prayer for every car
Bass part can be filled with the same chords as refrain
Am Dm C E (and goes this way till the last line of refrain, when it changes to Am A)
I want the world to stop . . .
[Dm G C E Am | Dm G C E] 
I want to write a message to you
Every day at ten o'clock in the evening
Yellow pearl my city is
This is your art
This is your Balzac, your Brookside, and your Bach
Am G F, E Dm, C Bm, E
[Am] [Dm] [C] [E]
