*F# is actually just a slowly bent F# on the low E string like a transition in a country 
riff between E and G
on that string.

Main riff - the notes in parenthesis are strummed, quieter in earlier parts of the song 
or only occur during
certain verses, most get more pronounced in the later verses.  Basically when possible 
around the lick there
is a strum of variations of the root D or sometimes Dsus2 or D5 chords.

[Verse 1]
Main riff 2x

A ballerina in Phoenix
The pines up north
The sunrise from a highway
That was not there before

If I can place it all together
Make out the nature of the call
I start to feel the love and the silence
That was always at the root of it all

[Chorus 1]
           Em                 D
And in my constant quest for truth
           Em                 D5
I am condemned to       facts alone
           F# G               F# Em7
And though my dreams all lead me nowhere
           Asus4     A       D
I won't forget my way back home

[Verse 2]
Main riff 2x

From the corner of a coffee shop
Or from the center of a stage
From the words used in a love note
Or from an empty page

While I struggle with these beauties
And my renditions end up dry
I'm like a bird that crashes into the window
That was drawn to the reflection of the sky

[Chorus 2]
           Em                 D
And the more I try to speak
           Em                 D5
The more I lose that earthly tone
   F# G                  F# Em7
And before heaven proves me hopeless
           Asus4   A       D
I won't forget my way back home

[Chorus 3]
           Em                 D
I admit that these answers that I seek
           Em                 D5
Are all to questions I've never known
   F# G                  F# Em7
But I pray to keep on looking
   F# G                  F# Em7
for as long as I can roam
   F# G                  F# Em7
And when the world finally fulfills me
           Asus4     A       D
I will not forget my way back home
