       G#m | F#/Bb | B F#/Bb G#m7 F# | E Esus2
       F# | E D# | G#m G#m7add11 | G#m7add11
       G#m | F#/Bb | B F#/Bb G#m7 F# | E Esus2
       F# | E D# | G#m G#m7add11 | G#m6

       C#m | A/C# | B/C# | E
       A/C# | Bsus4 B | F# | F#

G#m      F#/Bb
Do you remember
B   F#/Bb G#m7  F# E   Esus2
Standing on the shore,
     F#
Your head in the clouds,
     E       D#          G#m     G#m7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
G#m       F#/Bb
Bound for glory
       B F#/Bb G#m7 F# E Esus2
On the seven seas of life,
        F#       E     D#       G#madd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

G#m          F#/Bb
The wind was with you
         B    F#/Bb  G#m7 F# E  Esus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    F#
You set your sail
       E     D#      G#m  G#m7add11 G#m6
For an island in the sun,
G#m      F#/Bb
On the horizon,
B    F#/Bb G#m7 F# E Esus2 F#
Dark clouds up ahead,
        E         D#     G#m  G#m7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 C#m       A/C#
   Take me with you,
   B/C#          E
   Take me far away,
 A/C#          Bsus4  B       F#     /F# /F
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   D#madd9     F#    G#sus4add9 D#madd9 F# G#sus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   D#madd9       F#     G#sus4add9 D#madd9 F# G#sus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   G#m7sus2   B       C#6sus4
     Take the time to see
     G#m7sus2            B         C#6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Badd9        C#6             G#sus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: G#m | F#/Bb | B F#/Bb G#m7 F# | E Esus2
              F# | E D# | G#m G#m7add11 | G#m6

G#m         F#/Bb
You cry for mercy,
         B     F#/Bb  G#m7 F#   E    Esus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    F#
You drift alone,
   E        D#      G#m   G#m7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    G#m                   F#/Bb
And find the strength and you will see
     B   F#/Bb G#m7 F#   E    Esus2 F#
That you controlled your destiny,
      E     D#        G#madd9
After all is said and done.

 C#m          A/C#
   So take me with you,
   B/C#          E
   Take me far away,
 A/C#          Bsus4  B       F#     /F# /F
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   D#madd9     F#    G#sus4add9 D#madd9 F# G#sus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,

     Spread your wings across the sky.
   G#m7sus2   B       C#6sus4
     Take the time to see
     G#m7sus2            B         C#6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Badd9        C#add9
     Or sailing ships will pass,
   B/D#      C#/F

     Sailing ships will pass you by…

We’ll ride the wind across the sky.
