Intro: Bm - Em - A - Em x2


[VERSE 1]
   Bm                     B9
An old man by a seashore 

Em             B*
At the end of day 

A                G
Gazes the horizon 

     A              Bm
With seawinds in his face 

Bm              B9
Tempest-tossed island 

Em                B*
Seasons all the same 

A                 G
Anchorage unpainted 

      A               Bm
And a ship without a name 


Bm              B9           Em               B*
Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard 

   A            G             A               Bm
He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world 

Bm          B9            Em            B*
Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts 

   A              G            A           Bm
The ones on their travels homeward from afar 



[CHOURS]
Bm         G    D   A   Bm 
This is for long-forgotten 

G           D            Em    Bm
Light at the end of the world 

   G  D  A   Bm
Horizon crying 

    G              D           Em
The tears he left behind long ago 



[VERSE 2]
  Bm             B9
The albatross is flying 
 
     Em          B*
Making him daydream 

        A          G
The time before he became 

      A              Bm
One of the world's unseen 

Bm                B9
Princess in the tower 

  Em               B*
Children in the fields 

A                G
Life gave him it all: 

    A                  Bm
An island of the universe 

Bm              B9
Now his love's a memory 

  Em             B*
A ghost in the fog 

    A                  G
He sets the sails one last time 

    A                 Bm
Saying farewell to the world 

Bm            B9
Anchor to the water 

Em             B*
Seabed far below 

   A           G
Grass still in his feet 

          A               Bm
And a smile beneath his brow 


Bm - Em - A - Em x2


[CHOURS]
Bm         G    D   A   Bm 
This is for long-forgotten 

G           D            Em    Bm
Light at the end of the world 

   G  D  A   Bm
Horizon crying 

    G              D           Em
The tears he left behind long ago 


End: Bm - Em - A - Em x2
