I love this melancholic song.


Keep You Happy


capo 5
 G    G[intro]
 G            Bm          C                    Bm
  The sky is turning and longing for something far away
G              Bm             C           Bm
  The moon's a tear drop, see slowly as he falls away
C              Bm           C            Bm
  Miles running down a face, everything's bound to change
C              Bm
  It's bound to change
 Em             G           Em          G
  Day breaks of tenderness, so hold me here like this
             Am7            C              G       G
So still and quiet, as if it might keep you happy, oh oh oh
         C      C
Keep you happy, oh oh oh
         G      G
Keep you happy, oh oh oh
         C     Csus9
Keep you happy

 A feeling has me and tells me it will never stay
Your heartbeats miles now, I feel them as they run away
Close gets so far away, close gets so far
 Day breaks of loneliness
I'd weather all of this
If I could find a place where I'd
Keep you happy, oh oh oh
Keep you happy, oh oh oh
Keep you happy, oh oh oh
Keep you happy
 Bm        Em                 C                  Bm
  Why do we pretend there is something to hold onto
Em           C                    Bm         Am7
  See how my world fell in, I was trying to hold you
      Bm         Am7
I was trying to hold you

 Night is a gypsy, he tells me he will never stay
Miles are like heartbeats, I know them as they fly away
See how they fly away, see as I fly
 Day breaks of restlessness, I'm filled with all of this
But deep inside, what will I find to keep me happy, oh oh oh
Keep me happy, oh oh oh
Keep me happy, oh oh oh
Keep me happy, oh oh oh
