         A
There's a girl

Across the sea
                                                                   G
And though I'm happy being loved it doesn't feel like love to me.
                          A
Never feels like love to me.


            A
There's a girl

Next to me
                                                         G
And she's happy being lovely and it's not enough for me.
                      A
It's not enough for me.

G              Gb               D
You're out of mind, I'm out of time,
         A                G
I only want what I can't see,
D              Dm                      A
But I'll still wait for her to run to me.


Once a boy

Now a man
                                                                   G
And even though I've grown 'the best I could' is still the best I can.
                           D
I'm loving you the best I can

        A
And the girl

Who's across the sea
                                                                G
And traveled halfway round the world to be the perfect girl for me
                             A
In all the ways you used to be.

G              Gb                D
You're out of mind, I'm out of time
         A                 G
I only want what I can't see
D         Dm                       A
And everything about her's new to me.

E          D            G          A
Now I see everything we do as a routine
E      D             G             E
Familiarity breeds awful things in me.

G                Gb                  D
I was out of my mind, now I'll make time
          A                 G
To be the man that I could be

D           Dm                                       A
And I was blind to think that you weren't right for me
G           Gm                               D
And I was blind to think it lay across the sea
