About this tab version
Couldn't find any tab for this awesome song so went ahead and created one. It's pretty simple and straightforward but if there are any errors please let me know. Mainly from this particular acoustic version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZU1XyaLVvDA. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]
D F#m G A (x4)

[Verse]
D                   F#m             G                 A
I've been down thinking about the boat that never ever touches water
          D           F#m             G                 A
but the ground still moves
D                   F#m             G                 A
We all move at the speed of sound but time stands still when you're standing 'round
          D           F#m             G                 A
so where will you stand?
          D           F#m             G                 A
where will you stand?

[Verse]
D                   F#m             G                 A
I've been round thinking about the boat that never ever touches water
          D           F#m             G                 A
and the sound of the waves as they crash against your body
D                   F#m             G                 A
We all move at the speed of light, the miracle of motion I almost lose my mind
          D           F#m             G                 A
but what I find is you
          D           F#m             G                 A
it's you

[Chorus 1]
Em                     F#m
We're all poor till the day we die
           G                      A
We all learn to read the smoke before we see the fire
          Em              F#m
without the fire from the sun
                 G          A
we don't see the moon
Em                     F#m
Tides turns against the sand
           G                      A
and the tides keep turning 'til they cover up the land
     Em          F#m     G           A
and soon it will end so where will you
     Em          F#m     G           A
and soon it will end so where will you
  D F#m G A x4
stand?

[Chorus 2]
Em                     F#m
We're all poor till the day we die
           G                      A
We all learn to read the smoke before we see the fire
          Em              F#m
without the fire from the sun
                 G          A
we don't see the moon
Em                     F#m
Tides turns against the sand
           G                      A
and the tides keep turning 'til they cover up the land
     Em          F#m     G           A
and soon it will end so where will you
     Em          F#m     G           A
and soon it will end so where will you
     Em          F#m     G           A
uuuuuuuuu
     Em          F#m     G           A
staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand
     Em          F#m     G           A (hold)
will you       staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand

[Outro]
      D  F#m   G         A
and will you stand with me?
      D F#m  G         A
will you    stand with me?
      D F#m  G         A
will you    stand with me?
      D F#m  G         A
will you    stand with me?

Have you done other Maldives songs? Specifically 'lately i' and 'muscle for the wing'? Two great songs.

No, it would be cool to do it though!
