Em (G) D Waiting for the bus stop
Em (G) D Waiting for the concrete black top to settle down
Em (G) D A
C Long enough for me to get off and get a little ground
Em (G) D I'm ready for the sea change
Em (G) D Helpless felt this coming from a mile away
Em (G) D A
G And now you're looking at me babe, and how we'll separate if we can
G Bm C Cause I still count on one hand the number of good men I know
D Em It's like I'm standing on the edge with just a telephone wire
C Trying to get to you first to say the world's on fire
D Em Holding my breath until I know you're alright
C Because the water will only rise
When will you realize
D Em You must become an island
C G You must become an island
D Em You must become an island
C And see for yourself that that's what I am
Em (G) D x 2
Em (G) D You always dirty up the windows
Em If you keep 'em at bay that way
(G) D Em No one's gonna surprise you by getting too close
(G) D Anybody but me though
A G You've made exceptions to your rules
G Bm G And now we're staring down truth neither one of us wants to know
D Em It's like I'm standing on the edge with just a telephone wire
C Trying to get to you first to say the world's on fire
D Em Holding my breath until I know you're alright
C Because the water will only rise
When will you realize
D Em You must become an island
C G You must become an island
D Em You must become an island
C G D Em And see for yourself the horizon is all we have
C G D
Em C And see for yourself the horizon is all we have
D Em Holding my breath until I know you're alright
C Because the water will only rise
