  Intro:     Em      (G)  D        x 2


Em               (G)   D
 Waiting for the bus stop
Em                         (G)   D
 Waiting for the concrete black top to settle down
Em                     (G)  D             A          
    C
 Long enough for me to get off and get a little ground

Em                 (G)    D
 I'm ready for the sea change
Em                  (G)            D
 Helpless felt this coming from a mile away
Em                        (G)  D                 A   
                 G
 And now you're looking at me babe, and how we'll separate if we can
                             G        Bm                    C
 Cause I still count on one hand the number of good men I know


                 D                              Em
 It's like I'm standing on the edge with just a telephone wire
            C
 Trying to get to you first to say the world's on fire
D                           Em
 Holding my breath until I know you're alright
              C
 Because the water will only rise

 When will you realize
D                   Em
 You must become an island
C                   G
 You must become an island
  D                 Em
 You must become an island
      C
 And see for yourself that that's what I am


 Em      (G)  D      x 2


Em                       (G)  D
 You always dirty up the windows
         Em
 If you keep 'em at bay that way
          (G)        D                         Em
 No one's gonna surprise you by getting too close
             (G)   D
 Anybody but me though
                A                      G
 You've made exceptions to your rules
                              G           Bm                   G
 And now we're staring down truth neither one of us wants to know


                 D                              Em
 It's like I'm standing on the edge with just a telephone wire
            C
 Trying to get to you first to say the world's on fire
D                           Em
 Holding my breath until I know you're alright
              C
 Because the water will only rise

 When will you realize
D                   Em
 You must become an island
C                   G
 You must become an island
  D                 Em
 You must become an island
      C                     G                D       Em
 And see for yourself the horizon is all we have
      C                     G                D       
Em        C
 And see for yourself the horizon is all we have


D                           Em
 Holding my breath until I know you're alright
              C
 Because the water will only rise
