[Verse 1]

   Bm           B5
An old man by a seashore
G
At the end of day
A         D5
Gazes the horizon
 A                    Bm
With seawinds in his face
Bm             B5
Tempest-tossed island
G
Seasons all the same
A            D5
Anchorage unpainted
A                    Bm
And a ship without a name

Bm            B5            G
Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard
   A            D5            A             Bm
He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world
Bm              B5       G
Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts
    A             D5       A               Bm
The ones on their travels homeward from afar


[Chorus]

Bm          G    D  Em Bm   
This is for long-forgotten
G            D          Em      Bm
Light at the end of the world
  G  D  Em Bm
Horizon crying
    G               D          Em
The tears he left behind long ago


(repeat intro riff)


[Verse 2]

    Bm           B5
The albatross is flying
G
Making him daydream
    A           D5   
The time before he became
A                     Bm
One of the world's unseen
Bm              B5
Princess in the tower
G
Children in the fields
A                D5
Life gave him it all:
          A          Bm
An island of the universe


[Verse 3]

Bm               B5
Now his love's a memory
  G
A ghost in the fog
   A                  D5
He sets the sails one last time
       A               Bm
Saying farewell to the world
Bm            B5
Anchor to the water
G
Seabed far below
A                   D5
Grass still in his feet
      A                 Bm
And a smile beneath his brow


[Chorus]

Bm          G    D  Em Bm   
This is for long-forgotten
G            D          Em      Bm
Light at the end of the world
  G  D  Em Bm
Horizon crying
    G               D          Em
The tears he left behind long ago


[Instrumental]

(repeat the intro x2)


Bm          G    D  Em Bm   
This is for long-forgotten
G            D          Em      Bm
Light at the end of the world
  G  D  Em Bm
Horizon crying
    G               D          Em
The tears he left behind long ago



[Outro]

(repeat the intro x2)
