G5                         Cmaj7   Dm
If you smile at me I would understand

Because that is something
                                Cmaj7  Dm      G5 Cmaj7 Dm
Everyone does everywhere in the same language
G5                                               Cmaj7 Dm
I can see by your coat my friend you’re from the other side
        G5
There's just one thing I've got to know
        Cmaj7   Dm          G5    Cmaj7 Dm       G5 Cmaj7 Dm
Can you tell me please, who won?
         G5                             Cmaj7
You must try some of my purple berries

Em                         A    D
Wooden ships on the water, very free 
Em                             A        D
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Em                             A        D
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be

Em                     Cmaj7                Em              Cmaj7
   Sail away where the wind blows sweet and young birds fly
Em               Cmaj7       D                                   C D
   Take a sister by her hand, lead her far from this barren land
 
Em                    A         D
Horror grips us as we watch you die
Em                         A         D
All we can do is echo your anguished cries 
Em                 A        D
Stare as all human feelings die 
Cmaj7                         Em Cmaj7
We are leaving you don't need us

Go and take a sister by her hand
Em                    A       D
   Lead her from this foreign land 
Em                          A      D
   Somewhere where we might laugh again
Cmaj7                    Em       Cmaj7
We are leaving you don't need us
