G#            C#         G#
Lovesick on a sunny afternoon
        C#               G#
You are tired of staying in
        C#            G#
You are waiting for a sign
             C#                G#
Mayfly woken up when skies are clear
        C#              G#
I don't mind you coming near
        C#               D#
Keep me company 'til she comes again

On the change to D#, lead guitar plays this
e|-------11----------------------

D#          C#                         Cm
You are the one who's making making to do
         A#m             G#
I am the one who's privy to
            A#m            Cm
Because you saw him at the park
              C#            G#
Beacause you saw him at the bridges
     A#m           D#
With people in the dark

Cana was the start of something big
You are there in the beginning
You were there to see him play
Mayfly woken up when skies are blue
I don't mind the sight of you
Keep me company till she comes again

You are the one who's making do
I am the one who's privy to
Cause you saw him at the celebration
Standing at the side
You had the moves to save the day
And you would love him anyway

Instrumental:
-Same as verses

Lovesick you came back upon yourself
You are the one left on the shelf
You are incapable of playing the fool
Longing so what's different today?
You send the boy and girl away
You are concerned with matters lofty

But puzzled so it makes you sick
Your diary's looking like the Bible
With its verses lost in time
Lost in meaning to the people
Who surround you it's a crying shame
You know it's a crying shame
You know it's a crying shame

Mayfly woken up when skies are blue
I don't mind the sight of you
Keep me company til she comes again
Mayfly woken up when skies are clear
I don't mind you coming near
Keep me company till she comes again
La la la la
She comes again
La la la la
She comes again
La la la la la
