Bm             Gb7            Gmaj7              Gb7
   When I was older, I was a sailor, on an open sea
Bm                   Gb7                   Gmaj7                      Gb7
   But now I'm underwater, and my skin is paler, than it should ever be
     Bm
Mmm-hmmm

Verse 1:
Bm                 Gb7
   I'm on my back again
                                           Gmaj7
Dreaming of a time and place where you and I remain the best of friends
                       Gb7
Even after all this ends, can we pretend?

Bm                            Gb7
   I'm on my, I'm on my back again
                                             Gmaj7
It's seeming more and more like all we ever do is see how far it bends
                                Gb7
Before it breaks in half and then, we bend it back again

Pre-Chorus:
Bm
Guess I got caught in the middle of it
                                               Gb7
Yes I've been taught, got a little of it in my blood, in my blood
Gmaj7
Memories burn like a forest fire
                                     Gb7
Heavy rain turns any funeral pyre to mud, in the flood

Chorus:
Bm             Gb7            Gmaj7              Gb7
   When I was older, I was a sailor, on an open sea
Bm                   Gb7                   Gmaj7                      Gb7
   But now I'm underwater, and my skin is paler, than it should ever be

Bridge:
Bm
   I'm watching movies back to back in black and white, I never

   Seen anybody do it like I do it any better
Gb7
   Then going over you, I'm overdue for no endeavors

   Nobody lonely like I'm lonely and I don't know whether
Gmaj7
   You'd really like it in the limelight

   You'd sympathize with all the bad guys
Gb7
   I'm still a victim in my own right

   But I'm the villain in my own eyes, yeah

Outro:
Bm             Gb7            Gmaj7              Gb7
   When I was older, I was a sailor, on an open sea

    I like it, but it seems a BIT out of tune with the song. But thanks, I’ve been waiting for this.
    P.S I’m first!
