Against the Tide  Colin Hay

Tabbed by: Kackao
Tuning: Standard
[Dm]The lines are broken between sh[Am]e and I
But t[Bb]he road is as straight as an arrow[Gm]
[F]We had walked in a beautiful forest[Am]
But after a while the trees grew t[Bb]hin
And offered little shade[Gm]
[Dm]Now more than ever our lives m[Am]ove of their own volition[Bb] [Gm]
[F]I sleep walk in the night
I don't wanna, I don't wanna
[Dm]I let the day decide
I'm searching for, I'm searching for
[F]I swim against the tide
I only wanna, I only wanna
[Dm]Get to the other side
You can always find me
[Bb]Waiting for the right t[C]ime
But I [Bb]can't wait till the end[C]
[Dm]You [Am]moved out of re[Bb]ach[Gm]
[F]Slipped out [Am]of my han[Bb]ds[Gm]
[Dm]I li[Am]ve in my[Bb] dreams[Gm] [C]
I have of you still hol[Bb]ding me[F]
The lines are broken between she and I
But the road is as straight as an arrow
We had walked in a beautiful forest
But after a while the trees grew thin
And offered little shade
Now more than ever our lives move of their own volition
I'm drifting out to sea
Someone's watching over me
So I won't drown
Moving closer ever closer
Your love is like the rain
The tide is coming in
Carrying me
And though the lines are down
I'm still holding
But I, I can no longer pretend
You moved out of reach
Slipped out of my hands
I live in my dreams
I have of you still holding me
Carrying me
