Intro -x2-: C  F  C  F

Verse:
C           F                C       F
Some birds fly away to the horizons warmer days,
     C               F                    C    F
Summer feels better than the blistering cold
C            F               C             F
I long for more than this doing a job just so I live
   C              F               C        F
I know my soul's vision can't be changed

Pre-Chorus:
Am                C              F
Someday soon I'll travel to find me
Am              C                 D7       
And this abyss ain't as dark as I feared

Chorus:
C              F                  Am
So I'm gonna pack my things and go
             G                C
Travel the world before I'm old
                 F               Am
I'll send you photos in the post
                  G                    C
That captured the moments I love the most
        F        Am
This is my great escape
         G
This is my great escape

Verse:
C           F
I want to climb up mountains
C          F
Drink from nature's fountains
C               F                C
Who knows what I'll do on my way

Interlude: C  F

C               F
I want to feel lost in transit
C              F 
Find love in a different language
C              F                 C
Who knows who I'll meet on my way

Pre-Chorus:
Am                C              F
Someday soon I'll travel to find me
Am              C                 D7       
And this abyss ain't as dark as I feared

Chorus:
C            F                  Am 
So I'm gonna pack my things and go
             G                  C
Travel the world before I'm old
                F            Am
I'll send you photos in the post
                   G                      C
That captured the moments I love the most
        F            Am
This is my great escape 
        G              C
This is my great escape

Bridge:
Am         Am                   G
I was once told whilst growing up
                 C         B            Am
If you want to leave then go while you can
Am             Am                   G
Before you get stuck, before you become
C        B                     D7
Another cog in the working machine
D7
Well that's not me so...

I'll send you photos in the post
                   G                      C
