Coming Up Close Lyrics

Artist: Til Tuesday
Album: Coming up Close: A Retrospective

Capo 1 - Ab maps as G

Chords:
G 320033
C2 X32033

*** Intro:
G

*** Verse 1:
G
One night in Iowa, he and I in a borrowed car
Em
went driving in the summer, promises in every star
C(2)
out in the distance I could hear some people laughing
Am
I felt my heart beat back a weekend's worth of sadness

*** Verse 2:
There was a farmhouse that had long since been deserted G
we stopped and carved our hearts into the wooden surface Em
we thought just for an instant we could see the future C(2)
we thought for once we knew what really was important Am

*** Chorus:
G C2
Coming up close
G
everything sounds like welcome home
C2 G
Come home and oh, by the way
Em
don't you know that I could make
Am C
a dream that's barely half-awake come true
G
I wanted to say -
Em
but anything I could have said
Am C G
I felt somehow that you already knew

*** Verse 3:
We got back in the car and listened to a Dylan tape G
we drove around the fields until it started getting late Em
and I went back to my hotel room on the highway C(2)
and he just got back in his car and drove away Am

*** Chorus:
Coming up close G C2
everything sounds like welcome home G
Come home and oh, by the way C2 G
don't you know that I could make Em
a dream that's barely half-awake come true Am C
I wanted to say - but anything I could have said G Em
I felt somehow that you already knew Am C

*** Coda
Coming up close G C2
everything sounds like welcome home G
Come home C2 G

Coming up close G C2
everything sounds like welcome home G
Come home Come on home C2 G

it makes me nostalgic for something i never had to start with.

A beautiful song - cool lyrics and a haunting melody.

I'm with Bee. "Voices Carry," a nice enough song, was the big hit from this album, this song a lesser hit. But it's so much more compelling...

Definately beautiful. Under rated yet a treasure. The quiet ones usually are....First song I learned on an accoustic.

after like a bunch of years now I know the name of the song and the artist. 25 years waiting. kind of sad but a lovely song

I've always felt that this is one of the saddest songs I've ever heard.

IMO, it's much better than "Voices Carry", which is the song that got all the attention.

I will never get tired of this song...i wish i knew what was in Amy's head when she wrote it. Top 5 of all time in my book.

This is one of the best songs of that time. I love Aimee's voice. So much feeling.
by Mike on 4/7/2013 6:06am
Extremely moving song esecially the last line brings it home for me
by Bill on 4/16/2013 3:54am
I can't pinpoint what it is about this song that really has a deep effect on me, but it stops me in my tracks each time I hear it. Perhaps it's just because I'm such an introspective person. Beautiful melody,instrumentation, and production, too. Wish I'd written it!
