Am, G, C, F, FM7add9 (X2)

Am               G     C
Lying awake and looking above
    F
The stars and their light fill my thoughts
     Am                            G         C
From here all this shit seems like nothing at all
        F
But the morning will break soon enough
  Am
I stood on the corner
    G               C
The light from the streetlamp
F
Danced on your skin
And it made me think
Am                     G            C
Back and remember when you longed to be
F
One of the stars I now see

F 
But the floodgates were opened
C
And I watched you run
      G
Each departing step
       Dm                     F
Seemed more like an ocean in length
           Am                        C       G
And by the time I had turned you were gone

    Am                        C             G
And I've never felt such such sudden ambition
F
To see something through to it's end
Am
Despite all my longing
C            G 
My humble conviction
        F
We've already drawn our last breath
    Am                          C            G
And all the complaints that you had now make sense
F
No book, just a cover
                     FM7add9
Not soul mates, just lovers
Am                  C             G
I finally chose to ignore all the blows
       F
And I left you alone
To leave

Cause the floodgates were opened
And I watched you run
Each departing step
Seemed more like an ocean in length
By the time I had turned you were gone

F, Ab, F, Fm
Eb, D, C, Ab

C                       E
I felt the sting and I knew this was bigger than
F                       Fm
Desires for time or for plans
C
Comfort and caring
E
Distrusting awareness
  F                         Fm
I knew I would never understand
C               E           F
I tried to call out over the sound of the
           Fm                C
Background music but to no avail
               E                F
You looked so happy immersed in speech
        Fm 
With a lonely
Am 
Man

G, C, F

F
Cause the floodgates were opened
    C
And I watched you run
     G
Each departing step
       C (yes, it changes)    F
Seemed more like an ocean in length
           Am                         C     G
And by the time I had turned you were gone

F
Cause the floodgates were opened
    C
And I watched you run
     G
Each departing step
       Dm                     F
Seemed more like an ocean in length
           Am                         C     G
And by the time I had turned you were gone
