One of the first Cranes songs I ever heard and still one of my all-time favorites.

This is the exact way to play it...

Tune down 1/2 step to Eb.

The chord progression is: 
 
  B       A9      G       Em      A9       
xx4400  x02200  320003  022000  x02200  
 
            B                            A9                      G              
If you just,  if you just hold on to me,   it would make me happy 
 
                          Em          A9
If you just hold on to me,    I won't feel so empty 
 
B                              A9                           G
  With our eyes closed tightly,  just as close as we can be 
 
                             Em           A9                     B
Like a rainbow made just for me, oh these times were precious to me 
 

...means happy dreams
..my eyes and it makes me..
like i'd swim all on the...
and it all falls down the stream

Lead Guitar after Verse 3: 
 
     B           A9           G          Em      A9

over ruining beautiful dreams
but i can't feel
and i can't sleep
and i can't hear
and i can't see
and if i never feel again
and if this is true in the end
then you better say goodbye

but i loved you 
just wanted you to know
i'm so sorry i never told you so

i've loved you
just wanted you to know
so sorry i never told you so
