The Crash - Simple Things
Transcribed by Christian Stieg

capo 1st

A+ x03220

A       C#              F#m    
We want all very simple things 
but we know very little.
A         C#             Bm     
And so we get very complicated stuff,               -> ->-> -> -> ->
D                     Bm               D           E E4 E E6 E7 E2 EX
love and such, 'cause all in all we're beautiful 

    D         A      
How easily we fall in love. 
    E               F#m
You walk to me, you talk to me. 
    D              A         E
And sudden glances fall upon you and me. 
     F#m        E             F#m
This harmony is meant to be a symphony. 

We all assume that we rule our lives 
but we can't even hold our breath.

Who knows how suddenly worlds are turning,
how suddenly things may change? 
We are so terribly unpredictable and wonderful.
Just turn around and I'll be gone. 

How easily we fall in love.  
You walk to me, you talk to me. 
Then suddenly you go again. 
I'm losing you, I'm losing you.
Oh talk to me, I'm losing you.  F#m2

    A         A7              F#
And now, it's all very simple now.                -> ->-> -> -> ->
  F#7              Bm             D           A  E E4 E E6 E7 E2 EX
I hope we get this love alive, as easy as it is. 

How easily we fall in love.  
You walk to me, you talk to me. 
And suddenly you're far away. 
I'm loosing you, I'm loosing you. 
Then silently you answer me: 
"You're fading out, I'm loosing you". 
Oh talk to me. I'm holding on.
