A little difficult. I'm not sure all the chord are right, because the
guitar play principally solo parts and not accompainment. The chords are
a "background" that could be played with a keyboard, or (in a unplugged
version) by himself.

 Sailing down behind the sun,

 Waiting for my prince to come.

 To restore my soul again.

C#-    A2   F#-        B
 Just a toerag on the run.

 How did I get here?
F#-         B
 What have I done?
C#-       A2    F#-   B
 When will all my hopes arise?

 And I hear those ancient lullabies.
B         G#-        F#       G#-
 And as I watch this seedling grow,
C #      D              La  E
 Feel my heart start to overflow.

 Where do I find the words to say?
E          A2
 How do I teach him?
F#-         B
 What do we play?
C#-    A2  F#-    B
 Bit by bit, I've realized

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.

As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

My father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

At the beginning there is no vibrato, it is actually a tremolo effect on the guitar.
