C   Em    D Dsus4  C  (2x)

C               Em       D       C
Like an ancient day and I'm on trial
C                   Em       D            C
Let them seize the way, this once was an island
D               G        C           G
And I could not stay for I believed them
D            G      C         G
Left for the lights always in season

C   Em    D Dsus4  C  (2x)

[ Tab from: ]
C         Em          D        C
Impossible night in a crowd of homesick
C                   Em       D            C
Fully grown children, you'll leave the lights
D                    G          C           G
Your family may not wait, Sir, keep on breathing
D                    G        C           G
Our parents rue the day, they find us kneeling
D                         G        C           G
Let them think what they may, for they've good reason
D            G        C        G
Left for the lights always in season

D    G    C    G  (2x)
