Late for the Sky  Jackson Browne

Jackson Browne: Late for the sky
|C |G |F |C/E |
|Dm |Am G |F |F |
[C]The words had all been [G]spoken
And somehow [F]the feeling still wasn't [C/E]right
[Dm]And still we con[Am]tinued [G]on through the [F]night
[C]Tracing our steps from the be[G]ginning
Until they [F]vanished into the ai[C/E]r
[Dm]Trying to understand how [Am]our live [G]had led us [F]there[C]
[F]Looking hard [Am]into your eyes
There was [G]nobody I'd [G/F]ever known[Em]
Such an [Dm]empty sur[F/C]prise [Am] to [F]feel so a[G]lone[Am] [G/B]
Now for [C]me, some words come [G]easy
But I know that [F]they don't mean that [C/E]much
[Dm]Compared with the [Am]things that are [G]said when lovers [F]touch
[C]You never knew what I [G]loved in you
I don't know [F]what you loved in [C/E]me
[Dm]Maybe the picture of some[Am]body you were [G]hoping I might [F]be[C]
[F]Awake again, I [Am]can't pretend [G] and I [G/F]know I?m a[Em]lone
And [Dm]close to the [F/C]end [Am] of the [F]feeling we've [G]know[Am]n[G/B]
[F]How long have I been [C/E]sleeping
[Dm]How long have I been d[Am]rifting alo[G]ne through the n[F]ight
[F]How long have I been [C/G]dreaming I could make it right
If I closed my eyes and tried with [F]all my might
To be the o[Am]ne you need
|C |G |F |C/E |
|Dm |Am G |F |F |
|C |G |F |C/E |
|Dm |Am G |F C/E Dm |C |
[F]Awake again, I [Am]can't pretend [G] and I [G/F]know I am a[Em]lone
And [Dm]close to the [F/C]end [Am] of the [F]feeling we've [G]know[Am]n[G/B]
[F]How long have I been [C/E]sleeping
[Dm]How long have I been [Am]drifting al[G]one through the [F]night
[F]How long have I been [C/G]running for that morning flight
[C/G]Through the whispered promises in the [F]changing light
Of the [C]bed where we both [G]lie
Late for the [C]sky[Bb/C]
C Bb/C rep & fade
