Enjoy!

F           C         G          Am
I opened my eyes last night and saw you in the low light 
F                                      Am
Walking down by the bay, on the shore, staring up at the planes that aren’t 
there anymore 
F                 C          G            Am
I was feeling the night grow old and you were looking so cold 
F                  C                   G
Like an introvert, I drew my over shirt 
                   Am
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before 
F               C        G       Am
You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me 
F
Running into the dark underground 
Am
All the subways around create a great sound 
F               C         G         Am
To my motion fatigue: farewell with your ear to a seashell 
F                     C
You can hear the waves in underwater caves 
G                   Am                     C
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room 


[CHORUS]
F                  C                G
Time together isn't ever quite enough 
                   C          
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home 
F                            C                   G
What will it take to make or break this hint of love? 
C
We need time, only time
F                          C                 G
When we're apart, whatever are you thinking of?
                       C
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?
F                          C                     G
So tell me darling, do you wish we'd fall in love?
             C
All the time, all the time

F                        C        G                             Am
Can you believe that the crew has gone and wouldn’t let me sign on
F                                        Am
All my islands have sunk in the deep, so I can hardly relax or even 

oversleep
F                   C         G                    Am
I feel as if I were home some nights, when we count all the ship lights
F      
I guess I'll never know why sparrows love the snow 
Am                                                     C
We’ll turn out all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow

F                   C                        G
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
C       F
All the time.

[CHORUS x2]
