[piano intro]
Dm Am Bb C    (x2)


[verse]
        F               A7
With an upwind facing starboard
          Bb               C
I wasn't sure of where to go
         F              A7
And the salt burns my skin
        Bb                    C
And your eyes were cold as the ocean


[chorus]
F
This is our day today
Dm                      C
  Won't you find a way back
         Bb
To these arms


[verse]
          F                 A7
And we're bound for where we started
        Bb                        C
With a downwind course through the harbour
        F          Dm
And at sunset I was sorry
       C          
That this was our day today
Bb
  This is our day today


[chorus]
F
Why can't you find a way
Dm                      C
  Won't you find a way back
         Bb
To these arms
F
This is our day today
Dm                      C
  Won't you find a way back
         Bb
To these arms


[interlude]
Dm Am Bb C


[bridge]
            Dm
And are we bound for where we started
             C                           Bb
'Cause the start is where we're bound to end up
      Dm
The start is where we're bound
           C                          Bb
And we're bound to end up where the start's at


[verse]
           F               A7
And when twilight turned to darkness
        Bb                 C
I wasn't sure of where to go
         F             A7
And the salt burns my skin
        Bb                    C
And your eyes were cold as the ocean


[chorus]
F
This is our day today
Dm                      C
  Won't you find a way back
         Bb
To these arms
F
Why can't you find a way
Dm                      C    Bb
  Won't you find a way back
F
This is our day today
Dm                      C
  Won't you find a way back
          Bb
Find a way back


[post-chorus]
Dm          Am     Bb C
   Find a way back      (x4)


[outro]
Dm Am Bb C

Perfect chords.
I personally prefer transposing down 5 1/2 steps with a
capo 4.
