[Dm]The lines are broken [Am]between she and I
But the [Bb]road is as straight as an arrow[C]
[F]We had walked in a beautiful forest[Am]
But after a while the [Bb]trees grew thin
And offered little[C] shade
[Dm]Now more than ever[Am] our lives move of their own volition[Bb] [C]
Verse: The F alternates with F/A and the Dm alternates with Dsus2
[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]Waitin for the ri[C]ght time
But[Bb] I can't wait till the [C]end
[Dm]You [Am]moved out of[Bb] reach[C]
[F]Slipped ou[Am]t of my [Bb]hands[C]
[Dm]I li[Am]ve in my dre[Bb]ams[C]
I have of you [Bb]still holding me[F]
