A#          F         
Long afloat on shipless oceans
D#           Gm
I did all my best to smile
A#                F
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
D#             Gm
Drew me loving to your isle

A#            G#          Gm                   A#
And you sang "Sail to me, sail to me, let me unfold you"
Gm         Gm         F          D#   Gm               
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you


A#          F
Did I dream you dreamed about me
D#                 Gm
Were you hare when I was fox
A#             F
Now my foolish boat is leaning 
D#              Gm
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,

A#             G#            Gm                        A#
For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow
Gm            Gm       F              D#  Gm               
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow" 


A#           F
I am puzzled as the newborn child
D#            Gm
I am troubled at the tide
A#            F
Should I stand amid the breakers?
D#                Gm
Should I lie with Death my bride?

A#             G#          Gm                   A#
Hear me sing, "Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you
Gm         Gm         F          D#   Gm            
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you"

D            A       G
Now that the day has come
  Bm         A       G
I see myself as everyone
D           A          G
I am what’s all around me
    Bm         A           G
No, nothing it just cannot be
Bm          A             G
Feeling has come from the sun
     D         A              G
Like most everything and everyone
           D            A        G                 D
What seems lost is free from the force that slowly destroys us
          Em         Bm  A Em
And kills all matter off
Bm             Em          Bm          A     Em      Bm
Well, we don’t control the chance that plays with us
       Em            Bm      A       Em     Bm
And we get existence back to hurting others
            Em           Bm          A      Em      Bm
And when we go the other way it’s ourselves we hurt
        Em        Bm           A         Em
But who pushes on though eventually will see
      A        Em
Every moment’s first
      Bm
Every moment is first
G                D          A  Em
What’s gone will never come back
       G           D            A Em
But it exists when you think of it
    G           D        A Em
And what is anything, anyway
      G         D              Em           Bm
But a series of things running through your brain
G          D                 A Em
All of the fucked things you do
        G                D           A Em
Are the product of whats happened to you
G            D           A  Em
Whatever you create from love
     G             D                Em    Bm    
Is a gift from the place which some call above
        G        D         Em       Bm
There’s only the forces of hate and love
G                 D            Em          Bm
One breaks things down and one builds them up.

Pleasures’ other side
F#m        D                       A     D
Fear, some say, gives us such long lives
F#m   D           A      D
Leads us where we drive

F#m       E       D
Time will soon be born
      F#m      E       D A Bm F#m
It is starting all the dawn
        D        A      Bm      F#m
And the world is moving towards
            D   A         Bm F#m
Things like opposites and wars
        D        A          Bm   F#m
And one knows to hear birds sing
          D            A       Bm      Bm
There was nothing till the beginning   Yeesss
        D     A       Bm   F#m
And the water from my eyes
     D       A        Bm F#m
Is because I care who dies
         D        A       Bm   F#m
Although death is transforming
         D         A             Bm
There is nothing after the ending



Everything is eternal
Nothingness does not exist
No thing has ever become nothing
And nothing has never become something
What is has always been and will always be

I've got a million to choose from

A million ways things could be
        A#        F    Cm
In dull moments I feel like

There's a million options I see

    D#         A#  F    Cm
The trouble is choosing one

The trouble is doing one

  A#           F          Cm
A slave in the fields one night
     A#       F    Cm
He's running along

Gets far enough to be a free man
