CHRISTINA AGUILERA - Anywhere But Here

This song is from the album Finding Neverland: The Album(2015), released on Jun 09, 2015.
I enjoyed the production and the composition of this song as well as her rendition. The background music felt lush with strings and pads, the rhythm felt sparse, yet it had enough elements to make the song interesting. I enjoyed the simplicity in the lyrics and the complexity in the arrangement. Hats off to the producers and Christina for such an amazing song.

[INTRO] Am
[VERSE]
Am
There's no need of distance
F
No need for touch
Dm                         G
No need for answers 'cause I've heard enough
      Am                      F
I've just found a chest some place out of reach
    Dm                       G
I entered the darkness and laid my release
C                F
I open I open my heart
G                         C                   F
Sing like a nightingale opened my opened my hands
G
When no one else understands

[CHORUS]
Cm              Fm
I just close my eyes
Eb          G
And count to ten
Cm          Fm
Breathing twice
      Bb  Eb
And open them
Cm        Fm              Bb            Eb
Nowhere to go cause I've been there before
     Ab
In my mind it is near
     Eb/G
I escape all I fear
         Fm
So by closing my eyes
      Ab        Bb  Eb G
I am anywhere but here

[VERSE]
       Am
There's no need for anger
F
Religion or faith
Dm
One blade of grief
G
Will always remain
     Am
It's not on the paper
 F
Or a history book
       Dm                    G
It's a place to reunite with all that was took
     C               F
And open my open my heart
G                         C                  F
Sing like a nightingale opened my opened my hands
G
When no one else understands

[CHORUS]
Cm              Fm
I just close my eyes
Eb          G
And count to ten
Cm          Fm
Breathing twice
      Bb  Eb
And open them
Cm        Fm              Bb            Eb
Nowhere to go cause I've been there before
     Ab
In my mind it is near
     Eb/G
I escape all I fear
         Fm
So by closing my eyes
      Ab        Bb  Eb
I am anywhere but here

[BRIDGE]
Cm         G              Bb        F
Picture a land where you never have been
       Fm                     Eb  G
Where life is a eternal and ever green
      Fm
The future of happiness and sanity
      Fm                      Gm           G
He loved and you're lost for now in eternity

[CHORUS]
Cm              Fm
I just close my eyes
Eb          G
And count to ten
Cm          Fm
Breathing twice
      Bb  Eb
And open them
Cm        Fm              Bb            Eb
Nowhere to go cause I've been there before
     Ab
In my mind it is near
     Eb/G
I escape all I fear
         Fm
So by closing my eyes
      Ab        Bb  Eb G
I am anywhere but here
