Capo 3

Intro: Am Am Bm-C C G G F D Am

Am                     C   
Have you ever been compelled
         G
Under a spell
           F                              Am
From a protagonist who knows you far too well
Am                    C
Have you ever been undone
                  D
By a slip of the tongue
     F                                     Am
and betrayed a side of you that felt hard won
                       C
So we watch the water swell
                 D
From a Scottish hotel
               Bm
Have you ever fell?
Have you ever fell?


C 
Are you gonna tell me why
           Em
There's a backpack by the bedroom window
D
It's a pack of lies
Bm
Everything has to reach a peak sometime
C
Tell me why
          Em
There's a map lain flat on the bedside table
D
It's a pack of lies
Bm
It's not a peak, it's a plateau

Em
Let me know
C
When you wanna leave this island
D
Let me know
G               D                Am
When you wanna hear my point of view

C C G G F F C

Am                   C
In the observation lounge
                   D
Couples ready to pounce
               F                            Am
But there's a reticence from treading icy ground
Am                      C
So we watch the water swell
                 D
From a Scottish hotel
               Bm
Have you ever fell?
Have you ever fell?


C 
Are you gonna tell me why
           Em
There's a backpack by the bedroom window
D
It's a pack of lies
Bm
Everything has to reach a peak sometime
C
Tell me why
          Em
There's a map lain flat on the bedside table
D
It's a pack of lies
Bm
It's not a peak, it's a plateau

Em
Let me know
C
When you wanna leave this island
D
Let me know
G                       D        Am
When you wanna hear my point of view
Em
Let me know
C
When you wanna leave this island
D
Let me know
G                       D        Am
When you wanna hear my point of view

G          D       Am
I'll stand up for you        
G          D       Am
I'll stand up for you
G          D       Am
I'll stand up for you

Em               C
I will act as a semaphore
D                      B
I will guide you to a perfect landing
Em                C
I will act as a distant shore
D                     B                     Em
I will aim to be the last man standing for you
                 C
I will act as a semaphore
D                      G       D       Am

G          D       Am
I'll stand up for you

When you wanna leave this island
G               D                Am
When you wanna hear my point of view
