Full lyrics are below. Note the riff #'s so you'll know when to play what.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Intro: (#1) (x2)

(#1) It's just a stitch in time
     It's perfect, I don't mind
     Sailing on your endless sea
(#1) You're perfect, I don't mind
     I've got your stitch in mine
     Everywhere I wanna be

(#2) Don't say you want too much
     They'll say you've had enough
(#3) Don't let them lay their trips on you

(#1) There's somewhere I just gotta be... 
(#1) Oooh, yeah yeah..... There's somewhere I just gotta be

(#4a) (x1)
(#4b&4c) You're everywhere at once, and you can't break free
(#4b&4c) You're everywhere at once, and you can't break free
(#4c)    You're everywhere at once, and you can't catch me, watch out

(#1) There's somewhere I just gotta be, Oooh
(#1) (x1)

(#1) It's just a stitch in time
     We fit together fine
     A puzzle looking for its piece
(#1) You're perfect, I don't mind
     Your trouble makes you mine
     Everywhere I look I see

(#2) Don't say you want too much
     They'll say you've had enough
(#3) Don't let them lay their trips on you

(#5) There's somewhere I just gotta be... 
(#5) Oooh, well... There's somewhere I just gotta be

(#4a) (x1)
(#4b&4c) You're everywhere at once, and you can't break free
(#4b&4c) You're everywhere at once, and you can't break free
(#4c)    You're everywhere at once, and you can't catch me, watch out

(#1) There's somewhere I just gotta be... 
(#1) Oooh, yeah yeah..... There's somewhere I just gotta be
(#1) There's somewhere I just gotta be... 
(#1) Oooh, yeah yeah..... There's somewhere I just gotta be

(#4b&4c) (x1)
(#4c) (x1)
