G/D                                 F#m/A A/D
 The way that sunlight flits across your  skirt,
G/D                            F#m/A A/D   Asus2/D
 Makes me feel I'm I'm from another  world,
G/D                           F#m/A A/D
 To touch your face in the morning  light.
G/D                            F#m/A   Dsus2
 I hope you're always gonna be a   -   round.

G/D                               F#m/A A/D
 The times I've struggled to understand why,
G/D                            F#m/A A/D  Asus2/D
 The ancient proverbs like Who am    I?
G/D                          F#m/A A/D
 Why am I here and What have I     done?
G/D                                F#m/A Dsus2
 I see the answer's place my trust in    you.

   most.

G/D                     F#m/A A/D
 I want us to be like Peter   Pan,
G/D                                 F#m/A A/D  Asus2/D
 But dreams it seems are weightless as    sand,
G/D                         F#m/A A/D
 And man's supposed is made of    sand,
G/D                               F#m/A Dsus2
 It seems that man cannot survive at    all.

A                     Amaj7
Let's dissapear love, let's fly away,
         A7         A6                Bsus4   B
Into the demi-mode, into the twilight zone.

D Dmaj7 D6 D (x4)

G/D                                 F#m/A A/D
 The times inside I spent screaming at    you,
G/D                             F#m/A A/D  Asus2/D
 Release me please from this mortal   jail,
G/D                               F#m/A A/D
 One shrug or smile can determine my    fate,
G/D                                F#m/A Dsus2
 I'm lost for days and have myself to    blame.

D             Dmaj7  D6 D          D             Dmaj7  D6 D
Something I'm giving,      said is yours for the taking,
E              B        A B  E         B         A B
Something like sunlight,     Love is a spotlight.

And I can't work out the end bit just yet...
