   Bm           B5
An old man by a seashore

G
At the end of day

A         D5
Gazes the horizon
 
A                    Bm
With seawinds in his face

Bm             B5
Tempest-tossed island

G
Seasons all the same

A            D5
Anchorage unpainted

A                    Bm
And a ship without a name

Bm            B5            G
Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard

   A            D5            A             Bm
He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world

Bm              B5       G
Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts

    A             D5       A               Bm
The ones on their travels homeward from afar




Bm          G    D  Em Bm   
This is for long-forgotten

G            D          Em      Bm
Light at the end of the world

  G  D  Em Bm
Horizon crying

    G               D          Em
The tears he left behind long ago


Repeat Intro

    Bm           B5
The albatross is flying

G
Making him daydream

    A           D5   
The time before he became

A                     Bm
One of the world's unseen

Bm              B5
Princess in the tower

G
Children in the fields

A                D5
Life gave him it all:

          A          Bm
An island of the universe



Bm               B5
Now his love's a memory

  G
A ghost in the fog

   A                  D5
He sets the sails one last time

       A               Bm
Saying farewell to the world

Bm            B5
Anchor to the water

G
Seabed far below

A                   D5
Grass still in his feet

      A                 Bm
And a smile beneath his brow




Bm          G    D  Em Bm   
This is for long-forgotten

G            D          Em      Bm
Light at the end of the world

  G  D  Em Bm
Horizon crying

    G               D          Em
The tears he left behind long ago




Repeat the intro x2




Bm          G    D  Em Bm   
This is for long-forgotten

G            D          Em      Bm
Light at the end of the world

  G  D  Em Bm
Horizon crying

    G               D          Em
The tears he left behind long ago




Repeat the intro x2
