            'We Didn't Mean To Go To Sea'
                                         by Declan O'Rourke


Tabbed by *Alan4*

Intro:
       C   Am   C   Am


Verse 1:
C                  Am
Along the quayside you were a light
C                          Am
And I, a reflection, lay across the river and the night
C                          Am
You were transfixed on me and I was mesmerised
F
And names were whispered to and by you and I



Verse 2:
C                         Am
The tides began to steal away from morning light
C                         Am
As night receded river walls seemed to grow high
C                         Am
Then you climbed down into my arms and closed your eyes
F
When we awoke we had been drifting




Chorus:
C 
We didn't mean to go to sea
Am/G
We didn't mean to drift away 
Am
We never planned to up and leave
F
But still the sea took us away
C
We saw no lands on the horizon
Am/G
No distant shores along the fray
Am
Yet all the more we found ourselves
F
When we got lost at sea that day




Verse 3:
C                         Am
Timbers creaked, all else was quiet and relieved
C                         Am
Except the infant waves that licked and lapped along the eaves
C                         Am
It had to dawn on us, our truth had been believed
F
Beyond all lies and jealousy




Verse 4:
C
We sailed high wind half-mast
Am                                   C
Due north, towards the edge of our dreams grateful borders
Am
That matched our speed to stay ahead
C
The afternoon was bleeding to death
Am
And soon the sky was racing red
F
To see the stars remove their hats out of respect



(Chorus Repeat)
