Transpose:
[Verse]
N.C.I want clear water from here to the horizon
N.C.I want some calm seas for the journey still ahead
N.C.Fair weather as we head for the skyline
N.C.A clear sky in the morning and every sunset red
[Verse]
F C G AmI want clear water as we sail out to the head
F Em Dm GAll I want to hear is the ripple from the bow
F C G AmLet us be at ease now and know our true position
F C G CLike a compass to the star, like a team hooked to the plough
[Verse]
F EmAnd as for all the history, it's best it's left unwritten
Dm C Dm GFew would believe if we told all we have seen
F C G AmComedy and tragedy have come along unbidden
F C G CThey are the port and starboard that we sail in between
[Verse]
F C G AmI want clear water for each new destination
F Em Dm GAnd if the storm should break we will take it in our stride
F C G AmWe rode out the tempest when the clouded stars were hidden
F C G CAnd the rising of the moon proved to be a fickle guide
[Verse]
F EmAnd if we hear the timbers creak, we'll be give and take
Dm C Dm GVoices from outside, we know our craft is strong
F C G AmAs long as we can speak without raising our voices
F C G CThe music of the storm is in the guarding of the song
[Bridge]
GAt night upon the deck I want to feel the salty spray
F GLike warm tears on my face for the passing of the day
F EmI watch the wheeling star 'til the light breaks in the east
Dm GMay the journey never end, let us be at peace
[Instrumental] F C G Am F Em Dm G F C G Am F C G C [Verse]
F C G AmI want clear water from here to the horizon
F Em Dm GMaybe scarred and feathered, but who'd say we were wrong
F C G AmThe journey not the goal was the only thing that mattered
F C G CWhile the wounds you thought had healed can still be opened by a song
[Verse]
F C G AmI want clear water from here to the horizon
F Em Dm GI want some calm seas for the journey still ahead
F C G AmFair weather as we head for the skyline
F C G CClear sky in the morning and every sunset red
F C G CA clear sky in the morning and every sunset red
