Intro: :2/4: F#m7 | F#m7
       F#m | E/G# | A E/G# F#m7 E | D Dsus2
       E | D C# | F#m F#m7add11 | F#m7add11
       F#m | E/G# | A E/G# F#m7 E | D Dsus2
       E | D C# | F#m F#m7add11 | F#m6

       Bm | G/B | A/B | D
       G/B | Asus4 A | E | E

F#m      E/G#
Do you remember
A   E/G# F#m7   E  D   Dsus2
Standing on the shore,
     E
Your head in the clouds,
     D       C#          F#m     F#m7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
F#m       E/G#
Bound for glory
       A E/G# F#m7 E D  Dsus2
On the seven seas of life,
        E        D     C#       F#madd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

F#m          E/G#
The wind was with you
         A    E/G#   F#m7 E  D  Dsus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    E
You set your sail
       D     C#      F#m  F#m7add11 F#m6
For an island in the sun,
F#m      E/G#
On the horizon,
A    E/G# F#m7 E D Dsus2 E
Dark clouds up ahead,
        D         C#     F#m  F#m7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 Bm        G/B
   Take me with you,
   A/B           D
   Take me far away,
 G/B           Asus4  A       E      /E /D#
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   C#madd9     E     F#sus4add9 C#madd9 E F#sus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   C#madd9       E      F#sus4add9 C#madd9 E F#sus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   F#m7sus2   A       B6sus4
     Take the time to see
     F#m7sus2            A         B6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Aadd9        B6              F#sus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: F#m | E/G# | A E/G# F#m7 E | D Dsus2
              E | D C# | F#m F#m7add11 | F#m6

F#m         E/G#
You cry for mercy,
         A     E/G#   F#m7 E    D    Dsus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    E
You drift alone,
   D        C#      F#m   F#m7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    F#m                   E/G#
And find the strength and you will see
     A   E/G# F#m7  E    D    Dsus2 E
That you controlled your destiny,
      D     C#        F#madd9
After all is said and done.

 Bm           G/B
   So take me with you,
   A/B           D
   Take me far away,
 G/B           Asus4  A       E      /E /D#
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   C#madd9     E     F#sus4add9 C#madd9 E F#sus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,

     Spread your wings across the sky.
   F#m7sus2   A       B6sus4
     Take the time to see
     F#m7sus2            A         B6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Aadd9        Badd9
     Or sailing ships will pass,
   A/C#      B/D#
     Sailing ships will pass you,

     Sailing ships will pass you by…
