Intro: :2/4: C#m7 | C#m7
       C#m | B/D# | E B/D# C#m7 B | A Asus2
       B | A G# | C#m C#m7add11 | C#m7add11
       C#m | B/D# | E B/D# C#m7 B | A Asus2
       B | A G# | C#m C#m7add11 | C#m6

       F#m | D/F# | E/F# | A
       D/F# | Esus4 E | B | B

C#m      B/D#
Do you remember
E   B/D# C#m7   B  A   Asus2
Standing on the shore,
     B
Your head in the clouds,
     A       G#          C#m     C#m7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
C#m       B/D#
Bound for glory
       E B/D# C#m7 B A  Asus2
On the seven seas of life,
        B        A     G#       C#madd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

C#m          B/D#
The wind was with you
         E    B/D#   C#m7 B  A  Asus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    B
You set your sail
       A     G#      C#m  C#m7add11 C#m6
For an island in the sun,
C#m      B/D#
On the horizon,
E    B/D# C#m7 B A Asus2 B
Dark clouds up ahead,
        A         G#     C#m  C#m7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 F#m       D/F#
   Take me with you,
   E/F#          A
   Take me far away,
 D/F#          Esus4  E       B      /B /Bb
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   G#madd9     B     C#sus4add9 G#madd9 B C#sus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   G#madd9       B      C#sus4add9 G#madd9 B C#sus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   C#m7sus2   E       F#6sus4
     Take the time to see
     C#m7sus2            E         F#6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Eadd9        F#6             C#sus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: C#m | B/D# | E B/D# C#m7 B | A Asus2
              B | A G# | C#m C#m7add11 | C#m6

C#m         B/D#
You cry for mercy,
         E     B/D#   C#m7 B    A    Asus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    B
You drift alone,
   A        G#      C#m   C#m7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    C#m                   B/D#
And find the strength and you will see
     E   B/D# C#m7  B    A    Asus2 B
That you controlled your destiny,
      A     G#        C#madd9
After all is said and done.

 F#m          D/F#
   So take me with you,
   E/F#          A
   Take me far away,
 D/F#          Esus4  E       B      /B /Bb
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   G#madd9     B     C#sus4add9 G#madd9 B C#sus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   G#madd9       B      C#sus4add9 G#madd9 B C#sus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   C#m7sus2   E       F#6sus4
     Take the time to see
     C#m7sus2            E         F#6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Eadd9        F#add9
     Or sailing ships will pass,
   E/G#      F#/Bb

We’ll ride the wind across the sky.
