1. Be Here With Me (words & music: Edgar)

/G/Bm/C/G/Em/C/G/G/



G          Bm
too many many days passed by
    C
since I`ve seen you for the last time
        G
and I don`t know how long
Em          C
it`s going on like this

      G          Bm
I can`t forget about what was
          C
and I wish that you were here with me
       G         Em
we had a cup of tea and talk talk talk
     C            G     Bm       C
about everything that was recently happening to us

G           Bm       C

I think it doesn’t have to be a cup of tea
      G        Em      C
we could also drink a coffee or a coke
    G            Bm         C
or an orange juice or an apple juice or a crapefruit juice
G       Bm     C            G   Bm  C
I just want you to be here with me with me

G           Bm       C

be here with me here with me with me
G           Bm       C
be here with me here with me with me

They are somewhere, but just now noone cares about me
    D              Am7
But I need someone to get out of that mess

I'm running against a wall

And I know I should forget all about you

A               Am7
It seems not like being real
               D
I'd wish you felt how I feel

15. Strum The Guitar A Little (words: Edgar & Kenmi, music: Kenmi)

Instrumental: D/A/G/A/  D/A/G/A

I asked you what shall I say if your friends ask me tonight

what kind of music do I like the best

you told me it's safe to say Belle and Sebastian or the Smiths

cause they are great and always loved by everyone


what goes on in your head    I feel so fine

you roll around in my bed     I feel so fine

4tracks on our desk         I feel so fine

you and me strum our guitars a little


you taught me about guitar pop, a world so totally new to me

you showed me some simple chords I could play

since then we strum from time to time in the middle of the night

I wanna play and record our song


what goes on in your head    I feel so fine

you roll around in my bed     I feel so fine

4tracks on our desk         I feel so fine

you and me strum our guitars a little

damit wir niemals mehr einen Stillstand haben

my heart is broken

still not every word is spoken
        G               A7 /C/ / G/
about what was happening to us

the loneliness comes through the door

 G                  C
I always have you on my mind

I could just cry just cry just cry

I know that I`ve been too shy

I should have been talking about

      G              A7
and now I´m sitting on my bare wood floor

the loneliness comes through the door

( through the door )

A7
I could never listen to dancefloor
C
I listen to Hank Williams
G          A7                C
to music that`s homegrown, sad but true

G              A7
I`m sitting on my bare wood floor
C               G
feeling feeling so ….
