In the clouds, Oh-h,
Am            F
You're hiding behind.
E                  Am
In your misty mind have disappeared,

Like a sailor far from the shores of your dreams.

Sailor lost on your own misty seas.

It's so confusing,

When you feel that you're losing, ____ your-self. (Piano, over)
     Am                  C        F
But, there, huh oh yeah, over the mountains,
E                            Am
That you thought you'd never have to climb.
There's a road, oh yeah.
C            F
Reaching and stretching.
   E          Am            C
To the corner of your mind, ohhh,. (Wailing guitar, over)
       D           Am
Like a river casts aside the dust.
    C         D            Am
And grows and grows, as it flows,
    C            D             Am
The feeling deep inside of you must,
C     G      D
Break like a dam.

Am               C          Am  C Am
So set you free, so set you free, (Wailing guitar, over)
C          Am              C
So set you free, Hmmm-mmm, Ahhh-hhh
