What they think Cause my [B]eyes were turned up
Like you tore [G#/C]open the ceiling
Ebm(hold) Bb/D
I've been singing songs in the night-time

Chorus 1:
[F#]I built a raft and got [G#m]carried away
In [Ebm]my new direction And [C#/F]there's where I stay[C#]

Now get down!

Of what could be Hidden [B]underneath the rocks
So we're [G#/C]never in position
Ebm(hold) Bb/D
I was singing songs of a lost mind
Ebm(hold) Bb/D Ebm(hold)
But I am still with my friends So I am not scared
Of anything I said "[B]don't open the door
Even [G#/C]if you hear me screaming"

So you can [Ebm]go away, Go away [C#/F]If you want to leave[C#]

And now [Ebm]don't you hide
'Cause you've got a [B]treasure to find
So shed those [F#/B]leaves that you lie under[G#m]neath (under[C#]neath)
And now [Ebm]don't you stray
If you feel that [B]you've lost your way
F# G#m C# G#/C-B(hold)
Share this feeling that came over me (over me)
