G              D           C       G
Some says your dreams are a distant road
     C         G                  D     G   
Down which our hearts would like to go
    Em     Bm      C         G
But I have always stayed in place
C               G                D    Dsus4
Under that old illusion that is safe

             G       D          C       G
You said the ship in port is the safer one
         Em          G           D
But it's not the reason it was made
      Em      Bm   C      G
So forgive me if I wander off
       C       G          D
And forgive me more if I just stay

Em D

                          Bm         C
Sing another song for the lost ones
                               Em   D
We're the ones who need it the most
                         Bm       C
Every time you run it'll cost ya'
But it doesn't stop us runnin'

     G      D      C       G
If a coward dies a thousand times
D              C         G     D              
Then there's a graveyard in my head
          Em      Bm        C      G
'Cause it took me years to say the words
     C     G          D         
That you denied even need said


                          Bm         C
Sing another song for the lost ones
                               Em   D
We're the ones who need it the most
                           Bm      C
Nothin' that you fear is forgotten
It follows you around like

G G G Em G
G G G Em C

G              D          G        Em
Then everything danced to a stranger tune
G                D           G       C
And we found our song and we found our truth
G   D           G                       Em
And now that we know it's that we always knew
G               D              G      C
Farewell to the chains we were born into

G D G Em

           G               D            G  
And as we danced among the ashes of our arms
We laughed it off
            G               D                 G
And then we burned our tiny world to find the ocean
       C                      G
Just beyond those paper walls
