EVERYONE I'M CLOSE TO IS FAR AWAY

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


* = no 3rd


INTRO:  Am - G6 - Fmaj7 - E
        Am - G6 - Fmaj7 - E
        Am - G6 - Fmaj7 - E7 - A*


        Am    G        Dm        F      C    E
    I.  faces line the wall just like a mu - ral.
        Am  G      Dm            Bb     E
        I'm in the dark, they're in the light.
        F          G               Am      Am/G
        the sirens make me feel so rural.
        F       G         Dm     E
        I am so ambient tonight.
                 Am   G      Dm       Bb       E
             and everytime I have something to say,
             Am   G6      Fmaj7       E7   A*
             everyone I'm close to is far away.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  A* - C*/A - F*/A - E*/A - A*


        Am         G       Dm       F       C     E
   II.  think I'll go back home and write a let - ter.
        Am   G        Dm    Bb    E
        I'll check my answering machine.
        F           G                  Am       Am/G
        the traffic light could not be redder.
        F            G          Dm      E
        everywhere I am is in-between.
                 Am       G        Dm       Bb      E
             the stations all sign off, the anthems play.
                 Am   G6      Fmaj7       E7   A*   (into instrumental)
             and everyone I'm close to is far away.

  III.  the B drive belches at the clicking mouse.
        Am  G      Dm         Bb    E
        the window blinks and I log on.
        F         G           Am       Am/G
        I'm in my virtual clubhouse.
            F              G                Dm      E
        the members live inside this small icon.
               Am         G       Dm        Bb       E
             I think that I'll be here 'til break of day
                    Am   G6      Fmaj7        E
             'cause everyone I'm close to,
                    Am   G6      Fmaj7        E
                    everyone I'm close to,
                    Am   G6      Fmaj7       E7
                    everyone I'm close to is far...   (pause)
                            A*
                       ... away.
