       C/E | Dsus4 D | A | A

Bm       A/C#
Do you remember
D   A/C# Bm7    A  G   Gsus2
Standing on the shore,
     A
Your head in the clouds,
     G       F#          Bm      Bm7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
Bm        A/C#
Bound for glory
       D A/C# Bm7 A  G  Gsus2
On the seven seas of life,
        A        G     F#       Bmadd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

Bm           A/C#
The wind was with you
         D    A/C#   Bm7 A   G  Gsus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    A
You set your sail
       G     F#      Bm   Bm7add11 Bm6
For an island in the sun,
Bm       A/C#
On the horizon,
D    A/C# Bm7 A G  Gsus2 A
Dark clouds up ahead,
        G         F#     Bm   Bm7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 Em        C/E
   Take me with you,
   D/E           G
   Take me far away,
 C/E           Dsus4  D       A      /A /G#
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   F#madd9     A     Bsus4add9 F#madd9 A Bsus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,
   F#madd9       A      Bsus4add9 F#madd9 A Bsus4add9
     Spread your wings across the sky.
   Bm7sus2    D       E6sus4
     Take the time to see
     Bm7sus2             D         E6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Dadd9        E6              Bsus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: Bm | A/C# | D A/C# Bm7 A | G Gsus2
              A | G F# | Bm Bm7add11 | Bm6

Bm          A/C#
You cry for mercy,
         D     A/C#   Bm7  A    G    Gsus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    A
You drift alone,
   G        F#      Bm    Bm7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    Bm                    A/C#
And find the strength and you will see
     D   A/C# Bm7   A    G    Gsus2 A
That you controlled your destiny,
      G     F#        Bmadd9
After all is said and done.

 Em           C/E
   So take me with you,
   D/E           G
   Take me far away,
 C/E           Dsus4  D       A      /A /G#
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   F#madd9     A     Bsus4add9 F#madd9 A Bsus4add9
     Sail your ship across the water,

     Spread your wings across the sky.
   Bm7sus2    D       E6sus4
     Take the time to see
     Bm7sus2             D         E6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   Dadd9        Eadd9
     Or sailing ships will pass,
   D/F#      E/G#
     Sailing ships will pass you,
   D/A       E/B                 Bsus2
     Sailing ships will pass you by…

Spread your wings and you will see
