Dm       C/E
Do you remember
F   C/E  Dm7    C  Bb  Bbsus2
Standing on the shore,
     C
Your head in the clouds,
     Bb      A           Dm      Dm7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
Dm        C/E
Bound for glory
       F C/E Dm7  C  Bb Bbsus2
On the seven seas of life,
        C        Bb    A        Dmadd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

Dm           C/E
The wind was with you
         F    C/E    Dm7 C   Bb Bbsus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    C
You set your sail
       Bb    A       Dm   Dm7add11 Dm6
For an island in the sun,
Dm       C/E
On the horizon,
F    C/E Dm7 C  Bb Bbsus2 C
Dark clouds up ahead,
        Bb        A      Dm   Dm7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 Gm        D#/G
   Take me with you,
   F/G           Bb
   Take me far away,
 D#/G          Fsus4  F       C      /C /B
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   Amadd9      C     Dsus4add9 Amadd9 C Dsus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   Amadd9        C      Dsus4add9 Amadd9 C Dsus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   Dm7sus2    F       G6sus4
     Take the time to see
     Dm7sus2             F         G6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Fadd9        G6              Dsus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: Dm | C/E | F C/E Dm7 C | Bb Bbsus2
              C | Bb A | Dm Dm7add11 | Dm6

Dm          C/E
You cry for mercy,
         F     C/E    Dm7  C    Bb   Bbsus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    C
You drift alone,
   Bb       A       Dm    Dm7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    Dm                    C/E
And find the strength and you will see
     F   C/E Dm7    C    Bb   Bbsus2 C
That you controlled your destiny,
      Bb    A         Dmadd9
After all is said and done.

 Gm           D#/G
   So take me with you,
   F/G           Bb
   Take me far away,
 D#/G          Fsus4  F       C      /C /B
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:

     Spread your wings across the sky.
