D G D Em D C D

[Verse 1]
               Em        D
I had this dream where I relished
     G              D             Em           D      C      D
The fray and the screaming filled my head all day
          Em           D                      G           D
It was as though I'd been spit there, settled in, into a pocket
     Em              D           C
Of a lighthouse off some rocky socket,
Off the coast of France, Dear

Em D

[Verse 2]
          G            D                      Em    D          
One afternoon, four thousand men died in the water here
C            D                   Em         D       G        D          Em    D    C    D                 
Five hundred more were thrashing madly as parasites might in your blood
              Em         D                     G
Now I was in lifeboat designed for ten and ten only,
      D            Em              D
Anything that systematic would get you hated.
      C               D           Em                D       G    D
It's not a deal nor a test nor a love of something fated, ughhh
              Em                  D              G        
The selection was quick, the crew was picked, in order, and
  D               Em         D             C        D        Em        
Those left in the water got kicked off our pant leg   and we headed for home.

D G D Em D C D 

[Verse 3]
         Em                   D
Then the dream ends when the phone rings
          G                    D                Em     
You doing alright he said it's out there, most days and nights
    D      C           D
But only a fool would complain
   Em    D           G          D                Em           D           C       D
Anyway, Susan if you like our conversation is as faint as the sound in my memory
         Em          D               C        D
As those fingernails   scratching on my hull

Em G C D x9
Em     D x2
