[Intro]

 Em Em9 C D C D Em


[Verse]

Em                     Em9
An old man by a seashore
 C 
 At the end of day
 D          C 
 Gazes the horizon
 D                     Em 
 With seawinds in his face
 Em                Em9 
 Tempest-tossed island
 C 
 Seasons all the same
 D          C 
 Anchorage unpainted
 D                   Em 
 And a ship without a name 
 Em              Em9         C
 Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard
 D                C                   D       Em
 He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world
 Em          Em9  C                           
 Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts
 D                   C              D     Em 
 The ones on their travels homeward from afar


[Chorus]

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

 
[Intro]

 Em Em9 C D C D Em


[Verse]

  Em                Em9
 The albatross is flying
 C 
 Making him daydream
  D                C      
 The time before he became
  D                Em      
 One of the world's unseen
 Em               Em9  
 Princess in the tower
  C                     
 Children in the fields
 D          C          
 Life gave him it all:
 D                Em       
 An island of the universe 
 Em                   Em9
 Now his love's a memory 
  C                
 A ghost in the fog
 D                 C             
 He sets the sails one last time
  D                    Em     
 Saying farewell to the world
  Em            Em9   
 Anchor to the water 
 C               
 Seabed far below
  D            C         
 Grass still in his feet
  D                    Em     
 And a smile beneath his brow 


[Chorus]

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

Great work on that tab!
Sound very beautiful :)
I guess the intro is also the outro? Otherwise I would recommend Am Em G D Am Em G D Em
