Waiting For My Real Life To Begin

Going Somewhere
Tabbed by Ian Dulley (iandulley@yahoo.co.uk)

The timing here is hard to judge from the tab alone.
I suggest you read this tab whilst listening to the
song to figure out how it goes.
At present I have only given the chords, but there's
some fingerpicking/arpeggio picking going on
throughout the song, just try to improvise, you can't
really make it sound bad.

Capo 4

Verse:

	   C
Any minute now, 
D	 	  G    C    G
my ship is coming in 
A/B/		       C  B  A    G
I'll keep checking the horizon 
A/B/		  C    D	  G    C    G

Verse:

	   C
When I awoke today, 
D	 	  G    C    G
suddenly nothing happened 
A/B/		       C  B  A    G
But in my dreams, I slew the dragon 
A/B/		  C    D	  G    C    G 
And down this beaten path, and up this cobbled lane 
A/B/	      C    B    A	G    C    G
I'm walking in my old footsteps, once again

Forget about the past, 
C      A      G        A
your mask is wearing thin

I know that I can win

I'm waiting for my real life to begin 


Verse:

	   C
Any minute now, 
D	 	  G    C    G
my ship is coming in 
A/B/		       C  B  A    G
I'll keep checking the horizon 
A/B/		  C    D	  G    C    G
And I'll check my machine, there's sure to be that call 
A/B/	      C    B    A	G    C    G
It's gonna happen soon, soon, soon, it's just that times are lean 


Chorus:

	    C      G      D 
And you say, be still my love 
	    C
Open up your heart, 
C      A      G        A
let the light shine in 
C      G      D
Don't you understand
