Near the end of the song is one haunting chord which I always wait for, does anyone recognize what I refer to?
The changes are
Asus2 - Em - G - D - Asus2
I would say Em
is haunting, but it isn't resolving anywhere, Asus2
resolves nearly every line. Suspended 2nds and 4ths, often together (Gordon uses Asus4
here also) are very popular in modern alternative rock and pop music.
idk how haunting it is, but it's resolving his all lines. Suspended chords are not infrequently described as "heartbreaking," with one example of their use (with Gsus2) being The Beatles', "The Long and Winding Road."
Alternatively, Gordon uses an A eleventh chord in the bridge, though not to resolve.
