How To Play

VERSE 1
     A
When stars are born.
    Bm/A
Are they cast out?
   E                      D       A
To wander cold and lonely lost in space.
  Cdim7
A loveless point of light
             Bm
That can't return.
   Bm7            E
Forever fixed within one place.
 
VERSE 2
     A                Bm/A
When love is lost and dreams are cast.
     E                           D       A
Like bruised and battered pieces left to die.
     Cdim7
When hands that reach out are betrayed.
    Bm              Bm7           E
How can my tortured soul survive?
 
BRIDGE
             C#m       F#m
There's only one thing left.
               D                       E
And that's the one thing that I needed most of all.
        C#m               F#m
But the freedom that I've gained
       Bm               Bm/A           G        G/F#   E
Is the loss that led me aimless to the shore.
 
CHORUS
        A     C#m7             F#m    F#m/E
And I'm borne high on these waves.
D            A/C#     E
Swept by the wind and alone.
A             C#m7                D       E
Sail me away, carry me back to my home.
    D
I'm tired, I've been torn.
  E/D                  C#7           C#7/E      F#m
A cruel wretched storm churns like a gale in my bones.
   F#m/E   Bm
Oh sail me away.
D/E      E          Dadd2
Carry me back to my home.
 
VERSE 3
      A
These scars run deep.
    Bm/A                  E                     D       A
The future holds a hunger for an innocence that passed away.
   Cdim7           A
My callous shadows mock.
                  Bm               Bm7           E
And make it clear some things were not enough to make them stay.
 
BRIDGE
           C#m         F#m
The moment time stands still
       D                         E
Is the moment that the writing's on the walls.
    C#m                F#m
The words are clear as ringing bells
     Bm               Bm/A             G        G/F#   E
That pride is present right before the fall.
 
CHORUS
        A     C#m7             F#m    F#m/E
And I'm borne high on these waves.
D            A/C#     E
Swept by the wind and alone.
A                 C#m7                D       E
Oh, sail me away, carry me back to my home.
    D
I'm tired, I've been torn.
  E/D                  C#7           C#7/E      F#m
A cruel wretched storm churns like a gail in my bones.
   F#m/E   Bm
Oh sail me away.
D/E      E          Dadd2
Carry me back to my home.
F#m/E   Bm
Sail me away!
D/E      E          Dadd2   A
Carry me back to my home!
