Intro -x4-: Abm  Gb

Verse 1:
Abm                      Gb
 I was listening to the ocean
Abm                  Gb
I saw a face in the sand
           E
But when I picked it up
         B         Gb          E
Then it vanished away from my hands
Abm                  Gb
I had a dream I was seven
Abm                   Gb
Climbing my way in a tree
        E
I saw a piece of heaven
B          Gb          E
Waiting impatient for me

Pre-Chorus:
    Dbm
And I was running far away
      E
Would I run off the world someday?
B                Gb
Nobody knows, nobody knows
   Dbm
And I was dancing in the rain
   E
I felt alive and I can't complain

Chorus:
B
But now take me home
Gb                   Emaj7
Take me home where I belong
                    E
I can't take it anymore

Verse 2:
Abm               Gb
I was painting a picture
Abm                            Gb
The picture was a painting of you and
      E                         B
For a moment I thought you were here
           Gb              E
But then again, it wasn't true
    Abm                        Gb
And all this time I have been lying
    Abm                    Gb
Oh, lying in secret to myself
        E                       B            Gb
I've been putting sorrow on the farrest place
        E
On my shelf, da di da

Pre-Chorus:
    Dbm
And I was running far away
      E
Would I run off the world someday?
B                Gb
Nobody knows, nobody knows
   Dbm
And I was dancing in the rain
   E
I felt alive and I can't complain

Chorus:
B
But now take me home
Gb                   Emaj7
Take me home where I belong

I got no other place to go
B
Now take me home
Gb                   Emaj7
Take me home where I belong

I got no other place to go
B
Now take me home
Gb                   Emaj7
Take me home where I belong
                    E
I can't take it anymore

Bridge:
          Dbm
But I kept running
                    E
For a soft place to fall
          B
And I kept running
                    Gb
For a soft place to fall
          Dbm
And I kept running
                    E
For a soft place to fall
          B
And I kept running
                    Gb
For a soft place to fall

Pre-Chorus:
    Dbm
And I was running far away
      E
Would I run off the world someday?

Chorus:
B
But now take me home
Gb                   Emaj7
Take me home where I belong

I got no other place to go
B
Now take me home
Gb                   Emaj7
Take me home where I belong

I got no other place to go

Outro:
B             Gb
Now take me home
            Emaj7
Home where I belong, oh no, no
B             Gb
Now take me home
            Emaj7
Home where I belong, oh oh-oh oh-oh
B             Gb
Now take me home
            Emaj7
Home where I belong, oh no, no
B             Gb
Now take me home
            Emaj7
Home where I belong
                    E
I can't take it anymore
