| h hammer-on | p pull-off LYRICS (Transcribed by Brian from TryJM & myself): On a sailboat I am Slowly floating nowhere Lost the memories of where I am and why Black ocean churnin' A million stars are burnin' Planetariums were right about the sky Oh once upon a pushed out from the journey Wishin' on the wind take me far from home Now I'm on the waves And I'm taking on water, hard to see, I won't always be alone There was a time when August sun was high and centered on me But it did behind my back and settled down Used to square it through the land, used to size it in my hand But it fell behind the line that leads to sky Oh, once upon a day I pushed out from the journey Wishin' on the wind to take me far from home Now I'm on the waves And I'm taking on water, hard to see, I won't always be alone Inside this storm whipping in the wind My sail is torn In other words, the hands I mend are not my own Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Not my own Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Hard to see, won't always be alone On a sailboat I am Slowly floating nowhere Hoping someday I'll wash upon someone else's shore =============================================================================
