I'm a [C]billion ages [Csus4]past you
A [C]million years be[Csus4]hind you too
A [Bb]thousand miles up [G]in the air
A [Bb]trillion times I've [G]seen [G6]you [G7]there
[C]Your hair is golden, [Csus4]mine is grey
[C]You walk on grass, it [Csus4]turns to hay
[Bb]Your blood is blue and your [G]eyes are red
[Bb]My body strains, but the [G]nerves [G6]are dead[G7]
[Cborus 1] 
I can't [C]reach you, I've [Bb]strained my eyes
I can't [C]reach you, I've [Bb]split my sides
I can't [C]reach, [G/B]tryin' [/]to [Am7]get [G6]on [/]you
[Fadd9]See, [C/E]feel [/]or [Gsus4]hear [F/D]from you[C]
| C | G | C | G |
The distances grow greater now
You drink champagne and past me plough
You fly your plane right over my head
You're so alive and I'm nearly dead
[Cborus 2] 
I can't [C]reach you, with [Bb]arms outstretched
I can't [C]reach you, I [Bb]crane my neck
I can't [C]reach, [G/B]tryin' [/]to [Am7]get [G6]on [/]you
[Fadd9]See, [C/E]feel [/]or [Gsus4]hear [F/D]from [/]you[C]
| C | G | C | G |
[Bridge] 
[Am]Once I caught a glimpse of your [G]unguarded,[(C/G)] untouched[(G)] heart
Our [Am]fingertips touched and then my [G]mind tore [C/G]us a[G]part
[Repeat cborus 2]
