VERSE 1
C                    Em
As an old man, I'm a young man
            F                C
'Cause I've not been old for long
      Am
And before these trembling waters settle
F                   C
I'll have flown the pond
     Em               Am
So I don't mean to be morbid
         G          C
Or a bit too on the nose
        F
But I'd like to share a few things
          G                 C    Fm
That I've learned along the road
 
REFRAIN
            C            Em
What you'll find chasing dreams
       F             C
Is the finish line recedes
             Am
And the riddle stays a riddle
          F           C
Oh, the humor's bittersweet
 
PRE CHORUS
    Em             Am
All nature does is dance
            G                C
So when you dance you're in accord
        Dm      Cm       F
Look no further than the feeling
D         G             Am
That it gives you for reward
G F     G C
Reward (Reward)
  F
Reward

Not what you want

But what you neeeeeed

VERSE 2
C                          Em
I've been a sleepwalker, a cheap talker
  F           C
A sly grin, a discreet offer
Am               C
I've held steady for a gaze
     F           C
I've led a lover through a maze
       Em             Am
Thrown bottles at the wall
         G             C
When someone forgot to call
          F                           C    G C
I've done all the things a wild heart will doo
Fm     C
I will do
 
REFRAIN
            C            Em
What you'll find chasing dreams
       F             C
Is the finish line recedes
             Am
And the riddle stays a riddle
          F           C
Oh, the humor's bittersweet
 
PRE CHORUS
    Em             Am
All nature does is dance
            G                C
So when you dance you're in accord
        Dm      Cm       F
Look no further than the feeling
