Verse 2, play the same:
Well we can park the van and walk to town
Find the cheapest bottle of wine we can find
Talk about the road behind
how getting lost is not a waste of time

in the morning we will sing as the forest sleeps

(play chorus again)
         Dm
Well its all
        Cm                      C
For the sake of arriving with you

Verse 2:
Well I will make the table into a bed
The candles burnin down its time to rest
Take back things already gone
I can give you promises for keeps

And I’ll only take them back
If they become yours and you give them to me

Chorus
Well its all
For the sake of arriving with you
Well its all
For the sake of arriving with you

Bridge: (Same as the chorus)
We can make this into anything
We can make this grow and become what will be
This can make this into anything
It can make us become more then what we seek

Outro: ?
