Intro: G Em C D
[G]What a beautiful [Em]face
I have found in this [C]place
That is circling [D]all round the sun
[G]What a beautiful [Em]dream
That could flash on the [C]screen
In a blink of an [D]eye and be gone from [G]me
Soft and[Em] sweet
Let me [C]hold it close and [D]keep it here with [G]me[Em] [C] [D]
[ Enter singing saw ] 
[G]And one day we will [Em]die
And our ashes will [C]fly from the aeroplane [D]over the sea
[G]But for now we are [Em]young
Let us lay in the [C]sun
And count every [D]beautiful thing we can [G]see
Love t[Em]o be
In the [C]arms of all I'm [D]keeping here with [G]me[Em] [C] [D]
Em C G D (x2 over solo)

(for guitar)

[G]What a curious [Em]life we have found here [C]tonight
There is music that [D]sounds from the street
[G]There lights in the [Em]clouds
Anna's ghost all a[C]round
Hear her voice as it's [D]rolling and ringing through[G] me
Soft a[Em]nd sweet
How the [C]notes all bend and [D]reach above the [G]tre[Em]es [C] [D]
[Em] [C] [G] [D]  
[ Trumpet played over "Now how I remember you...")
[ F# A C# E F# A D E F# A C# D B C# D~ DD C# x2 then noise
[Em]Now how I remember [C]you
How I would push my fingers [G]through
Your mouth to make those muscles [D]move
That made your voice so smooth and [Em]sweet
And now we keep where we don't [C]know
All secrets sleep in winter [G]clothes
With one you loved so long [D]ago
Now he don't even know his [Em]name [C] [G] [D]
[ Trumpet played over "What a beautiful face..."
[ E F# A B G# A B A E F# A B G# A B A A G# A A C# C# B C# B A A F# AA BC# ^EE
[(G]What[Em] a b[C]eau[D)]tiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all
