  Bm                          (Bm7)
Looking down on empty streets, all she can see,
         Em/G                           Em7
Are the dreams all made solid, are the dreams made real,
Bm                   (Bm7)
All of the buildings, all of the cars,
     Em/G                    Em7
Were once just a dream in somebody's head,
      Bm                        (Bm7)
She pictures the broken glass, pictures the steam,
     Em/G                Em7             Bm
She pictures a soul with no leak at the seams!

Take the boat out!  (Wait until darkness!)
 Bm                                          Bm/A   Bm
Let's take the boat out!  (Wait until dark - ness comes!)


  Bm                        (Bm7)
Nowhere in the corridors of pale green and grey,
  Em/G                          Em7
Nowhere in the suburbs, in the cold light of day,
 Bm                              (Bm7)
There in the midst of it, so a - live and alone,
  G                 A
Words support like bone!

Dreaming of mercy...                in your daddy's arms!

Pulling out the papers from the drawers that slide smooth,
 Em/G                    Em7
Tugging at the darkness, word upon word,
         Bm                                  (Bm7)
Con - fessing all the secrets things, in the warm velvet box,
       Em/G                             Em7
To the priest, he's the doctor, he can handle the shocks,
   Bm                            (Bm7)
Dreaming of the tenderness, the tremble in the hips,
      G            A
Of kissing Mary's lips!

Anne, with her father, is out in the boat,
Em/G               Em7                            Bm
Riding the water, riding the waves... on the sea!
