[Intro]
G   Am Am7 Am   C   G
G   Am Am7 Am   C   G

[Verse 1]
GThese new lines on my face
GSpell out "girl pick up your pace
Am DIf you want to stay true to what your younger self would do"
[Verse 2]
GAnd this kink in my walk
GMakes me focus when I talk
AmIf I can't trust my feet
D/A D7Then it's my tongue I choose to keep
[Verse 3]
GAnd I walk slow so I can read
GLet my head fall, my hips lead
AmWhy'd you write the words so small?
D Did you fool me, are they words at all?
[Verse 4]
G Or are you pulling down the veil
G Keeping grounded as you set my sail?
AmBy the time I pull it off
DAll my innocence is lost
[Verse 5]
AmAnd oh I'm good, I think I'm good
Fmaj7 Will I be great, will I be great?
C GIs it money I wanna make or is it sweet love for his sake?
[Verse 6]
GAnd these new parts I now need
GTo help me function, help me feed
AmThey are beyond my modest earnings
DOh the girls they keep turning up the heat
GAs if it's cold
CBut I'm hot, too hot to hold
Am D I'll burn a hole right through the hull
[Chorus]
AmWhen will I ever see the land?
Fmaj7Will I ever see the land?
COh water can't revive me
GI need dirt in my hand
AmWill I ever see the land?
Fmaj7Will I ever see the land?
COh the ground will give me something
D Dsus4 GI know that it can
[Interlude] G Am Am7 Am C G [Verse 7]
GSee I have charm and I have sight
GAnd I always try and do what's right
AmBut I have faults you know it's true
D D7Especially when it comes to treating you well
[Verse 8]
G GI will work when all my thoughts are mine again
Am D See I was sure at the start, turns out I tried too hard
AmAnd oh I'm good, I think I'm good
Fmaj7 Will I be great, will I be great?
C G Is it money I wanna make or is it sweet love
D D7for his sake?
[Chorus]
AmWhen will I ever see the land?
Fmaj7Will I ever see the land?
COh water can't revive me
GI need dirt in my hand
AmWill I ever see the land?
Fmaj7Will I ever see the land?
COh the ground will give me something
D Dsus4 GI know that it can
[Outro] G Am Am7 Am C G G Am Am7 Am C G Gsus4 G
