[1/2]^ ^
[G/A]Packed and all eyes turned in, no one to see on the key. No one waving for
[Em/F#m]me just the shoreline receding. [C/D]Ticket in my hand and thinking [D/E]wish I
didn't hand it in. [G/A]Cause who said sailing is fine? leaving behind all the
faces that I might [Em/F#m]replace if I tried on that long ride, [C/D]looking deep
inside but I don`t [D/E]want to look so deep inside yet.
[G/A]Sit down, sit down on the proud [Em/F#m]wave bye, there might not be [C/D]another star,
farther on the [G/A]line. [G/A]Look out, look out at each town that [Em/F#m]glides by, and
there's another[C/D] crowd, to drown in crying[G/A] eyes. And [G/A]see how that light you
love now just won`t [Em/F#m]shine, there might just be another[C/D] star, that`s high
and far in some other [G/A]sky. [D/E]
[G/A]We sing, is that marionette real enough yet to step off of that set and
[Em/F#m]decide what a dance might mean to it. [C/D]Ruining the place where the [D/E]ensuing
may lay escape. We [G/A]packed up all of our bags the ship's deck now sags from
the weight of our tracks as we [Em/F#m]pace beneath flags black and battered
[C/D]rattling our swords in service of [D/E]some fated, foreign, war.
[G/A]And Jonathan says we sail out on order of him but we [Em/F#m]find that the maps he
[C/D]sent to us don't mention lost[G/A] coastlines. [G/A]Where nothing we've actually seen
has been mapped or [Em/F#m]outlined and we don't [C/D]recognize the names upon strange
And every [G/A]night finds us rocking and rolling on waves [Em/F#m]wild and wide, well
we have [C/D]lost our way, nobody`s gonna say it [G/A]outrig[D/E]ht. Just go [G/A]la la la la la la la la la...
