       Em | D/F#
       G D/F# Em7 D | C Csus2

       D | C B
       Em Em7add11 | Em7add11

       Em | D/F#
       G D/F# Em7 D | C Csus2

       D | C B
       Em Em7add11 | Em6

       Am | F/A | G/A | C
       F/A | Gsus4 G | D | D

Em       D/F#
Do you remember
G   D/F# Em7    D  C   Csus2
Standing on the shore,
     D
Your head in the clouds,
     C       B           Em      Em7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
Em        D/F#
Bound for glory
       G D/F# Em7 D  C  Csus2
On the seven seas of life,
        D        C     B        Emadd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

Em           D/F#
The wind was with you
         G    D/F#   Em7 D   C  Csus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    D
You set your sail
       C     B       Em   Em7add11 Em6
For an island in the sun,
Em       D/F#
On the horizon,
G    D/F# Em7 D C  Csus2 D
Dark clouds up ahead,
        C         B      Em   Em7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 Am        F/A
   Take me with you,
   G/A           C
   Take me far away,
 F/A           Gsus4  G       D      /D /C#
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   Bmadd9      D
     Sail your ship
      Esus4add9 Bmadd9 D Esus4add9
     Across the water,
   Bmadd9        D
     Spread your wings
      Esus4add9 Bmadd9 D Esus4add9
     Across the sky.
   Em7sus2    G       A6sus4
     Take the time to see
     Em7sus2             G         A6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Gadd9        A6              Esus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: Em | D/F#
              G D/F# Em7 D | C Csus2

              D | C B
              Em Em7add11 | Em6

Em          D/F#
You cry for mercy,
         G     D/F#   Em7  D    C    Csus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    D
You drift alone,
   C        B       Em    Em7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    Em                    D/F#
And find the strength and you will see
     G   D/F# Em7   D    C    Csus2 D
That you controlled your destiny,
      C     B         Emadd9
After all is said and done.

 Am           F/A
   So take me with you,
   G/A           C
   Take me far away,
 F/A           Gsus4  G       D      /D /C#
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   Bmadd9      D
     Sail your ship
      Esus4add9 Bmadd9 D Esus4add9
     Across the water,

     Spread your wings
      Esus4add9 Bmadd9 D Esus4add9
     Across the sky.
