[Intro]
D Dmaj7 D7 Dmaj7
D Dmaj7 D7 Dmaj7

[Verse 1]
   D                    G
In Rio the air is still warm in November
D                    G  
Blowing along by the bay 
           Bm                        D
And you're locked in the bathroom of some rented palace 
G           F#m          Em
Washing the traces away 
  G                        D
I wonder if you could have grown up an athlete 
F#m                       Bm    D
Breathless and lonely and free 
    G                         D    
But there you are clubbing in darkened sunglasses 
G          F#m     Bm
Working it out on TV 

[Instrumental]
D G

[Verse 2]
     D                            G
They showed me the pictures, they gave me the story 
   D                    G
Saw you splashed over the screen 
        Bm                          D
Saw you wrapped in a sheet like the ghost at the feast 
        G             F#m           Em
As they dragged you away from the scene 
  G                        D
Out in the crowd by the Copacabana
F#m                           Bm    D
Pushing your way through the press 
    G                            D    
For God's sake be quiet, there's nobody listening 
        G       F#m         Bm
There's no one about to confess 

[Instrumental]
D G

[Chorus 1]
   D                G
So is this what you dreamed, then? 
D                G      A
Is this what you had in mind? 
        Bm                     D                                    G
Did you buy your own ticket or were you just strapped to the ride? 
     Bm                         D                                G
If I sent you a postcard, well, who would send back the reply? 
     Bm                           D                      
If I tried to stand by you, well, would I be taken aside? 

[Bridge]
G  G/F# A G
D Dmaj7 D7 Dmaj7

[Verse 3]
  D                    G
Remember the long lazy Saturday mornings 
D                     G
Glued to cartoons on TV 
   Bm                      D
Or riding your bike down Ontario street 
   G         F#m          Em
To pick up a cone of ice cream 
  G                         D
Remember the wheels of your little red bike 
        F#m                         Bm    D
And the bricks of the big Stratford hall 
           G                          D   
Now you're lost by the window of some private jet 
        G              F#m     Bm
And the streets are so awfully small 

[Instrumental]
D G

[Chorus 2]
D                G
Is this what you dreamed, then? 
D                G      A
Is this what you had in mind? 
        Bm                     D                                    G
Did you buy your own ticket or were you just strapped to the ride? 
     Bm                         D                                G
If I sent you a postcard, well, who would send back the reply? 
     Bm                           D                      
If I tried to stand by you, well, would I be taken aside? 

[Outro]
G  G/F# A
                 D              Dmaj7 D7  
Is this what you dreamed, then? 
Dmaj7            D           Dmaj7  D7
Is this what you dreamed, then? 
G Gadd9 D Dmaj7
