Nightwish - The Islander (acoustic)

Intro : | Am  | G C    F  |
        | Am  | G C   Am  |

Am              Asus2
An old man by a seashore
At the end of day
G          C
Gazes the horizon
     G               Am
With seawinds in his face
Am             Asus2
Tempest-tossed island
Seasons all the same
G           C
Anchorage unpainted
      G             Am
And a ship without a name

Am            Asus2          F
Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard
     G          C             G             Am
He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world
Am             Asus2      F
Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts
   G              C         G            Am
The ones on their travels homeward from afar

(Am)        F    C  G  Am
This is for long-forgotten
F            C          Dm    Am
Light at the end of the world
F   C   G  Am
Horizon crying
    F              C          Dm 
The tears he left behind long ago


The albatross is flying
Making him daydream
The time before he became
One of the world`s unseen
Princess in the tower
Children in the fields
Life gave him it all:
An island of the universe

Now his love`s a memory
A ghost in the fog
He sets the sails one last time
Saying farewell to the world
Anchor to the water
Seabed far below
Grass still in his feet
And a smile beneath his brow


(Dm)    Am
So long ago....
