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 1
            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 waves 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?

VERSE 2
(Play the above interlude lead for the first half of the Verse 2)
Cadd9
  As hours move to minutes 
And minutes take longer to break
I will be desperately awaiting
But my tongue won't fall apart
And we've been sitting here for hours
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
