Intro: G D Cadd9 Cadd9 D G
 
      Cadd9    D              G
Any minute now my ship is coming in
                           Cadd9 Em7 A
I'll keep checking the horizon
G                       Cadd9  D
And I'll stand on the bow
                          G
And feel the waves come crashing
               Cadd9 Em7  A        G
Come crashing down, down, down on me

Cadd9               G       D
And you said,"Be still, my love
              Cadd9
Open up your heart
         D          G
Let the light shine in"
Cadd9  G        D
Don't you understand?
                 Cadd9
I already have a plan
    D              Cadd9        G
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

G D Cadd9 Cadd9 D G

             Cadd9  D               G
When I awoke today suddenly nothing happened
          Cadd9 Em7 A              G
But in my dreams I slew the dragon
                     Cadd9  D
And down this beaten path
                    G
And up this cobbled lane
                  Cadd9 Em7 A           G
I'm walking in my own footsteps once again
             Cadd9 G      D
And you say,"Just be here now
                 Cadd9
Forget about the past
     D                G
Your mask is wearing thin"
Cadd9     G            D
Let me throw one more dice
                  Cadd9
I know that I can win
     D             Cadd9         G
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

G D Cadd9 Cadd9 D G

           Cadd9   D          G
Any minute now my ship is coming in
                       Cadd9 Em7 A
I'll keep checking the horizon
G                    Cadd9
And I'll check my machine
D                        G
There's sure to be that call
                  Cadd9  Em7  A               
It's gonna happen soon, soon, oh so very soon
G
It's just that times are lean

             Cadd9  G       D
And you say,"Be still, my love
              Cadd9
Open up your heart
D                   G 
Let the light shine in"
Cadd9    G        D
Don't you understand?
                Cadd9
I already have a plan
     D              Cadd9       G
I'm waiting for my real life to begin
Em  A
Hey heyeyeyeyey
Em  A
Hey heyeyeyeyey
Em  A
Hey heyeyeyeyey
G   Cadd9
Hey yeeeeeee
D
Hey heyeyeyeyey
Cadd9
Eeh eeh eeh eeh eh
A
Hey heyeyeyeyey
Cadd9
Hey heyeyeyeyey


           G           Cadd9           D   G
On a clear day, I can see, see a very long way
           G           Cadd9           D   G
On a clear day, I can see, see a very long way
