F
Sometimes I wonder where I'd be

If all my friends abandoned me

On a vessel out to sea,
                           Bb
Took every lifeboat and they ran
F
It's funny how we'd switch our roles

With empty cabins, empty hulls

And all the food filled up with mold,
                            Bb
I'd stand on deck without a hand
                                 F
Feeling so much bigger than I am

Bb
And so I dim the lights, and I crack a beer

I think to myself about things
                      F
I'd said I'd do this year
Bb
Growing old never takes it's toll until you're losing
                                            F
Track of all things you won't ever have back again

(Same chords as first verse)
Five minutes pass and I get scared
I take the ladder, than the stairs
Trying hard to get some air
Inside these lungs that I neglect
I grip the wheel and try to turn
I never looked, I never learned
Just playing captain to my kind,
To think it never crossed my mind

Bb                                F
Please forgive me, I want to go home
C                     Bb                     F
Wake me up now, I'm so tired of being lonely
Bb                                            F
Strips of moonlight in the clouds are breaking through
C                    Bb                       F
I'll be dreaming, baby I'll be dreaming of you


(Same chords as verse 1)
After a night without a mate
I hung my head and loved my fate
Counted the hairs upon my face,
I never thought I'd have the time
But when the day came to an end
I missed my family and my friends
All driven out by my control
If everyone knew what they told
I wouldnít be so bold, I wouldnít act so old
Hey, honey, I wouldnít stay so cold

(Same chords as Chorus)
And so I dim the lights, and I crack a beer
I think to myself about things
I'd said I'd do this year
Growing old never takes it's toll until you're losing
Track of all things you won't ever have back again
And thereís so many of them

Interlude - Dm    Bb     F     C

 Dm              Bb
Then one morning I awoke
F                         C
Inside a clearing in the smoke
 Dm                       Bb                  C
My fist like quarters, scratching wax off of my eyes
 Dm                     Bb
I hit the door then I hit the roof
  F                          C
I bit my tongue, I broke a tooth
    Dm              Bm                C
I saw a landing to the left of the sunrise


                     Bb                        F
And I cried: please forgive me, I want to go home
C                    Bb                        F
Wake me up now, Iím so tired of being lonely
Bb                                                   F
Strips of moonlight in the clouds are breaking through
C                     Bb
Iíll be dreaming, baby Iíll dreaming
C                     Bb
Iíll be dreaming, baby Iíll dreaming
C                     Bb                                F
Iíll be dreaming, baby Iíll be dreaming of you
