|D         |G        |D        |Bm     A    |
|G         |D    A   |G        |G/A         |

       D                          G
Well I looked into a house I once lived in
           D                       Bm
Around the time I first went on my own
         A             G                        D
When the roads were as many as the places I had dreamed of
       A                  G
And my friends and I were one
        D           A/C#         C            G/B
Now the distance is done and the search has begun
             D              G             D       A
I've come to see where my beginnings have gone

       D                                G
Oh the walls and the windows were still standing
        D                           Bm
And the music could be heard at the door
          A          G                     D
Where the people who kindly endured my odd questions
         A           G
Asked if I came very far
            D         A/C#       C       G/B
And when my silence replied they took me inside
            D            G              D       D7
Where their children sat playing on the floor

        G            D                  G               D
Well we spoke of the changes that would find us farther on
       G          D           A
And it left me so warm and so high
         G               D           G            D
But as I stepped back outside to the grey morning sun
             F#m     Bm          Em/A
I heard that highway whisper and sigh
        G        G/A
Are you ready to fly?

      D                         G
And I looked into the faces all passing by
        D                        Bm
It's an ocean that will never be filled
        A                G                 D
And the house that grows older and finally crumbles
          A             G 
That even love cannot rebuild
       D        A/C#         C         G/B
It's a hotel at best, you're here as a guest
           D                                  A
You oughta make yourself at home while you're waiting for the rest

       G                        D
Well I looked into dream of the millions
     G                          D
That one day the search will be through
Bm                      F#m                     Em/A
Now here I stand at the edge of my embattled illusions
             G    G/A
Looking into you

|D         |G        |D        |G      |
|Bm         |F#m       |Em/A      |G/A      |

    D                          G
The great song traveler passed through here
        D                    Bm
And he opened my eyes to the view
    A       G                          D
And I was among those who called him a prophet
    A                    G
And I asked him what was true
          D            A/C#          C             G/B
Until the distance had shown how the road remains alone
        D                        A
Now I'm looking in my life for a truth that is my own

       G                          D
Well I looked into the sky for my anthem
        G                        D
And the words and the music came through
Bm                      F#m                         Em/A
But words and music can never touch the beauty that I've seen
Looking into you - and that’s true

|D         |G        |D   A    |G   Em/A   |D        |
