Verse 1:

C     Cadd4    C   Cadd4         G   Gsus4   G
I was just a child     when you took   my   hand
    C            Cadd4          C
We set the whole damn world on fire
     Cadd4             G        Gsus4       G
You showed me what it was to be loved by a man
    Am           Amadd9        C
But one day the   axe   just  fell
          Am            Amadd9        C
And the whole world got  shot all to hell
           G           D
There's a hole in my heart

Chorus:
         C             G
We were so, so close to heaven
        C    CMaj9     Am                   D   Dsus3
We were al - most  as good, as good as it gets
             G    D/F#     Em
And you were al - most an angel
         C              D7
That was almost heaven-sent
             G     D        G  (walkdown)
So close to hea - ven, so close


Verse 2:
 C           Cadd4      C
Our love was crazy and wild
Cadd4       G     Gsus4       G
Tender and mild,  slow and strong
   C    Cadd4        C      Cadd4   G  Gsus4      G     
Tonight I'll set on fire as no - - ble     as a storm
      Am      Amadd9            C
The lightning  fell  from your eyes
 Am             Amadd9        C
Suddenly, there   was no goodbye
           G           D
There's a hole in my heart


Chorus:
         C             G
We were so, so close to heaven
        C    CMaj9     Am                   D   Dsus3
We were al - most  as good, as good as it gets
             G    D/F#     Em
And you were al - most an angel
         C              D7
That was almost heaven-sent
             G     D        C   Cadd4  C
So close to hea - ven, so close


Bridge:
Am                                   
Wax wings that flew too close to the sun
     Am                  D7
But wasn't it so fun to fly
Am
It's far better to love and to lose
       Am                    D7  D7sus4
It's better to love than to die


Chorus:
         G                C
We were so, so close to heaven
          C      CMaj9     
We were almost, almost, 
  Am                   D   Dsus3
Almost as good as it gets
             G    D/F#     Em
And you were al - most an angel
           C            D7
That was almost heaven-sent
             G     D 
So close to hea - ven,
     G          D
So close to heaven,
     G          D    G
So close to heaven
