Jackson Browne: Late for the sky


[Verse 1]

C                             G
Of the words that all've been spoken,
            F                    C
somehow the feeling still wasn't right,
F            Am        G              F     C
and still we continued on through the night.
                             G
Tracing our steps from the beginning,
          F                 C
till they vanished into the air.
F                        Am       G        F     C
Trying to understand how our lives had led us there.


[Refrain]

F            Am                        G      F        G
Looking hard into your eyes, there was nobody I'd ever known.
              F        Am         G
Such an empty surprise to feel so alone.


[Verse 2]

        C                   G
Now for me, some words come easy
                F                    C
but I know that they don't mean that much,
F                 Am                   G           C
compared with the things that are said when lovers touch.
C                        G
You'll never knew what I loved in you,
             F                 C
I don't know what you loved in me.
F                        Am            G                 F     C
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be.


[Chorus]

F              Am                  G         C G
Awake again, I can't pretend and I know I am alone.
    F            Am                       G C G
And close to the end of the feeling we've known.
F                    C
How long have I been sleeping?
F                    Am         G               C
How long have I been drifting alone through the night?
F                    Am
How long have I been dreaming I
G                        C
could make it right if I close my eyes
        F                           Am
and try with all my might to be the one you need ...


[Chorus]

F              Am                  G         C G
Awake again, I can't pretend and I know I am alone.
    F            Am                       G C G
And close to the end of the feeling we've known.
F                    C
How long have I been sleeping?
F                    Am         G               C
How long have I been drifting alone through the night?
F                    Am
How long have I been running for
G                                          C
that morning flight through the whispered promises
       F                     C                 G
in the changing light of the bed where we both lie,
             C
late for the sky.
