[verse]

            E          C#m
I open my lungs dear, 
   A                 B            E       C#m
I sing this song at funerals, no rush.
      A              B                      E      C#m
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
  A               B                     E               C#m
A baby boy you've held so tightly, this pain it visits almost nightly.
 A             B                 E        C#m      A      B
Missing hotel beds, I feel your touch.

        E            C#m
I will await dear, 
   A           B             E      C#m
A patience of eternity, my crush.
  A         B         E       C#m
A universal still, no rust.
   A              B   
No dust will ever grow on this frame, 
    E                   C#m
One million years and I will say your name.
  A                  B           E          C#m     A     B
I love you more than I can ever scream.


[chorus]

   E                        C#m
We booked our flight those years ago, 
  A               B
I said I love you as I left you.
 E                     C#m 
Regrets still haunt my hollow head, 
      A                   B             E      C#m    A    B   
But I promised you that I will see you again.            Again.


[verse]

               E               C#m
I sit here and smile dear. 
  A               B                  E          C#m 
I smile because I think of you and I blush.
      A               B            E        C#m
These bleeding hollow dials, this fuss.
   A              B                      E                C#m
A fuss is made of miles and travels when roadways are but stones and gravel.
  A                  B             E          C#m     A    B
A bleeding heart can conquer every crutch.


[chorus]

   E                        C#m
We booked our flight those years ago, 
    A                 B
You said you loved me as you left me.
 E                         C#m
Regrets still haunt your saddened head,
      A                   B
But I promised you that I will see you.

   E                        C#m
We booked our flight those years ago, 
  A                B
I said I loved you as I left you.
 E                 C#m
Regrets no longer in my head, 
      A                B            E      C#m     A      B
But I promised you and now I'm home again, again, again
         E      C#m     A      B
I'm home again, again, again.
            E (single strum)
I am home again.
