Intro

Em


Verse 1

        C                    G
Jess: I can't help the way I am
        D
      A strong heart with a mission
            Am7
      In an ocean sailing man
        C                    G
      I cant help where I've been
          D                              Am7                              
      The lessons life has given me, the wonder that i've seen
          C                      G 
      And though it would be sweet
        D                            Em
      A constant earth beneath me, a lover in my reach


Chorus

C     G     Dsus4        D          Am7
Oh my love, satisfaction waits, I'm following my fate
C      G        Dsus4         D       Em
Oh, so true, my harshest sacrifice is sailing far from you

Verse 2

Gotye: Dropped anchor near a shore
       A land of gold and silver, and strange alluring whores
       New and unknown things 
       A carnival existence. A freedom fit for kings
       But heavy is my head
       Your eyes a thousand miles away and me not in your bed


Chorus

Both: Oh my love, satisfaction waits, I'm following my fate
      Oh, so true, my harshest sacrifice is sailing far from you


Solo

C, G, D, Am7
C, G, D, Em


Verse 3

Both: Now sunlight hits the sea
      My course is set, the winds are strong and luck is here with me
      You see I've worked for this my life
      But sadness plagues the sailor
      Always leaving love behind


Chorus


Outro

Em
