Verse 1
Cadd9         G           Gsus2       Em/D
And honestly, I have been begging for answers
     Dsus4                        Cadd9
That you and only you can give to me
               G              Gsus2      Em/D
A voice crying loud I've been crying for days now
    Dsus4                        Cadd9
And as I start to run, I stop to breathe
(And I was nearly scared to death)
    G            Gsus2
And I was nearly scared to death
Em/D
(Why you left in paragraphs)
Dsus4
Why you left in paragraphs
     Cadd9
(The words were nearly over us)
    G                 Gsus2
The words were nearly over us
    Em/D                        Dsus4
You stop and turn and grab your bags
 
 
 
 
Chorus
            G
And I'll be here by the ocean
 
Just waiting for proof that there's
Cadd9
sunsets and silhouette dreams
Gsus2    Em/D
  All my sand castles fall
         Gsus2    G
like the ashes of cigarettes
    Cadd9                  Gsus2
And every wave drags me to sea
         G
I could stand here for hours
 
Just to ask God the question
    Cadd9
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
Gsus2    Em/D
  With a tear in His voice
          Gsus2           G
He said, "Son, that's the question."
          Cadd9
Does this deafening silence
     Dsus4
mean nothing to no one but me?
 
 
 
 
Interlude- it's pretty much this small motif followed by a G chord, repeated throughout
this section. But I usually play it once and then use the chords I wrote out in the
verse that follows the interlude.

Cadd9            Gsus2    Cadd9
As hours move to minutes
                 G         Gsus2
And minutes take longer to break
          Cadd9
I will be desperately awaiting
       G                 Gsus2
But my tongue won't fall apart
               Cadd9
And we've been sitting here for hours
    G                Gsus2
All alone and in the dark
Cadd9                     G          Gsus2
 So let me think of to word it
Em/D                        Dsus4
 Is it too soon to say 'perfect'?
Cadd9                         G                    Gsus2
 If I could find another thirty minutes somewhere
             Em/D
I'm sure everything would find me
              Dsus4
All that's left is just to sing
 
 
 
 
 
Chorus 2
            G
And I'll be here by the ocean
 
Just waiting for proof that there's
Em/D
sunsets and silhouette dreams
       Cadd9
All my sand castles fall
                  Gsus2
like the ashes of cigarettes
    Dsus4                       Em/D Gsus2
And every waves drags me to sea
         G
I could stand here for hours
 
Just to ask God the question
    Em/D
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
       Cadd9
With a tear in His voice
 
He said, "Son, that's the question."
          Dsus4
Does this deafening silence
 
mean nothing to no one but me?
 
 
 
 
Bridge
           Cadd9                  G
And you'll sing to me sweet until then
      Cadd9                  G
I may never sail Virginia again
          Cadd9         Dsus4
Alas this current moves slow for me
D#maj7-5           A7sus4             Cadd9
this much you must know... we'll meet again
               Cadd9
And I'll, I'll have you know I'm scared to death
Cadd9
  Tell me once again that you
     Em/D             Gsus2
will love me till the death
             G
And should I die, you swear
     Dsus4             Cadd9
that you will come for me
                    Em/D           Gsus2   G    Dsus4
As I fade away, you reach out your arms
     Cadd9
(And please don't let me go)
    Em/D   Gsus2 G   Dsus4  Cadd9
And please don't let me go
     Cadd9
(And please don't let me go)
    Em/D   Gsus2 G   Dsus4  Cadd9
And please don't let me go
 
 
 
 
 
Final Chorus
            G
And I'll be here by the ocean
 
Just waiting for proof that there's
Cadd9
sunsets and silhouette dreams
Gsus2    Em/D
  All my sand castles fall
         Gsus2    G
like the ashes of cigarettes
    Cadd9                  Gsus2
And every wave drags me to sea
         G
I could stand here for hours
 
Just to ask God the question
    Cadd9
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
Gsus2    Em/D
  With a tear in His voice
          Gsus2           G
He said, "Son, that's the question."
          Cadd9
Does this deafening silence
 
mean nothing to no one but me?
