A Place to Call Home  Joey Tempest

I was o[B]ut the [E] [G#m] [F#]
door like nothing was lost.
Want[B]ed my free[E]dom no matter w[G#m]hat the cos[F#]t.
It m[B]ade no dif[E]ference what an[G#m]yone said.[F#]
I d[B]idn't foll[E]ow my heart I f[G#m]ollowed my [F#]head.
Well[B], a man is[E] an island but [G#m]the water i[F#]s deep,
and [B]the shore [E]on the other si[G#m]de is ragge[F#]d and steep.
Wel[B]l, I've bu[E]ilt my castle f[G#m]or just one[F#] man,
with[B]out the lo[E]ve of a woman. [G#m]It's made o[F#]ut of sand.
A t[E]ower of strength, with[F#] noone around
to p[G#m]ick me up when it a[C#m]ll came down.
Well,[E] I should known, we[F#] all need a place to call home.
B E G#m F# x4
Well, you've travelled the highways and you've travelled the world.
There ain't much left you haven't seen or heard.
To look for perfection is a lonley old ride,
it takes a whole lot of of courage and a whole lot of pride.
And then one day when you really care
she touches your soul, but you're far too scared.
Well, I should have known, we all need a place to call home.
[E] [C#m] [B] [F#m] 
I'm trying every day to find out more about myself.
[E] [C#m] [B] [F#m] [E] 
Learning how to love, now I need it from somebody else.
E G#m B F# (2x) then F#
4. (Same as verse) Come poets and writers, come spare me some time.
Come tell me the reason, come tell me the rhyme.
When you look for independence and you get what you want,
how come you look back thinking what have I done?
But time and again it dawns on me,
it's the price we pay for liberty.
[B] [F#] 
Well, I should have known, we all need a place to call home.
[E] [F#] 
God, I miss you tonight, we all need a place to call (home.)
B E G#m F# (a couple of times then fades away)
