Fm       D#/G
Do you remember
G#  D#/G Fm7    D# C#  C#sus2
Standing on the shore,
     D#
Your head in the clouds,
     C#      C           Fm      Fm7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
Fm        D#/G
Bound for glory
       G# D#/G Fm7 D# C# C#sus2
On the seven seas of life,
        D#       C#    C        Fmadd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

Fm           D#/G
The wind was with you
         G#   D#/G   Fm7 D#  C# C#sus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    D#
You set your sail
       C#    C       Fm   Fm7add11 Fm6
For an island in the sun,
Fm       D#/G
On the horizon,
G#   D#/G Fm7 D# C# C#sus2 D#
Dark clouds up ahead,
        C#        C      Fm   Fm7add11
For the storm has just begun.

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

Chorus:
   Cmadd9      D#    Fsus4add9 Cmadd9 D# Fsus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   Cmadd9        D#     Fsus4add9 Cmadd9 D# Fsus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   Fm7sus2    G#      Bb6sus4
     Take the time to see
     Fm7sus2             G#        Bb6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   G#add9       Bb6             Fsus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: Fm | D#/G | G# D#/G Fm7 D# | C# C#sus2

Fm          D#/G
You cry for mercy,
         G#    D#/G   Fm7  D#   C#   C#sus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    D#
You drift alone,
   C#       C       Fm    Fm7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    Fm                    D#/G
And find the strength and you will see
     G#  D#/G Fm7   D#   C#   C#sus2 D#
That you controlled your destiny,
      C#    C         Fmadd9
After all is said and done.

 Bbm          F#/Bb
   So take me with you,
