Cm       Bb/D
Do you remember
D#  Bb/D Cm7    Bb G#  G#sus2
Standing on the shore,
     Bb
Your head in the clouds,
     G#      G           Cm      Cm7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
Cm        Bb/D
Bound for glory
       D# Bb/D Cm7 Bb G# G#sus2
On the seven seas of life,
        Bb       G#    G        Cmadd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

Cm           Bb/D
The wind was with you
         D#   Bb/D   Cm7 Bb  G# G#sus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    Bb
You set your sail
       G#    G       Cm   Cm7add11 Cm6
For an island in the sun,
Cm       Bb/D
On the horizon,
D#   Bb/D Cm7 Bb G# G#sus2 Bb
Dark clouds up ahead,
        G#        G      Cm   Cm7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 Fm        C#/F
   Take me with you,
   D#/F          G#
   Take me far away,
 C#/F          D#sus4 D#      Bb     /Bb /A
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   Gmadd9      Bb    Csus4add9 Gmadd9 Bb Csus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   Gmadd9        Bb     Csus4add9 Gmadd9 Bb Csus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   Cm7sus2    D#      F6sus4
     Take the time to see
     Cm7sus2             D#        F6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   D#add9       F6              Csus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: Cm | Bb/D | D# Bb/D Cm7 Bb | G# G#sus2

Cm          Bb/D
You cry for mercy,
         D#    Bb/D   Cm7  Bb   G#   G#sus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    Bb
You drift alone,
   G#       G       Cm    Cm7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    Cm                    Bb/D
And find the strength and you will see
     D#  Bb/D Cm7   Bb   G#   G#sus2 Bb
That you controlled your destiny,
      G#    G         Cmadd9
After all is said and done.
