Am, G, C, F, FM7add9 (X2)
Am G CLying awake and looking above
FThe stars and their light fill my thoughts
Am G CFrom here all this shit seems like nothing at all
FBut the morning will break soon enough
AmI stood on the corner
G CThe light from the streetlamp
FDanced on your skin
And it made me think
Am G CBack and remember when you longed to be
FOne of the stars I now see
F But the floodgates were opened
CAnd I watched you run
GEach departing step
Dm FSeemed more like an ocean in length
Am C GAnd by the time I had turned you were gone
Am C GAnd I've never felt such such sudden ambition
FTo see something through to it's end
AmDespite all my longing
C G My humble conviction
FWe've already drawn our last breath
Am C GAnd all the complaints that you had now make sense
FNo book, just a cover
FM7add9 Not soul mates, just lovers
Am C GI finally chose to ignore all the blows
FAnd I left you alone
To leave Cause the floodgates were opened And I watched you run Each departing step Seemed more like an ocean in length By the time I had turned you were gone F, Ab, F, Fm Eb, D, C, Ab
C EI felt the sting and I knew this was bigger than
F FmDesires for time or for plans
CComfort and caring
EDistrusting awareness
F FmI knew I would never understand
C E FI tried to call out over the sound of the
Fm CBackground music but to no avail
E FYou looked so happy immersed in speech
Fm With a lonely
Am Man
G, C, F
FCause the floodgates were opened
CAnd I watched you run
GEach departing step
C (yes, it changes) FSeemed more like an ocean in length
Am C GAnd by the time I had turned you were gone
FCause the floodgates were opened
CAnd I watched you run
GEach departing step
Dm FSeemed more like an ocean in length
Am C GAnd by the time I had turned you were gone
