Intro -x2-: D Bm

Verse 1:
Bm           D                         Bm
well, it's a long way out to reach the sea
             D                               Bm
but I'm sure I'll find you waiting there for me
            D                     A
and by the time I blink, I'll see your wild arms swinging
         Bm                          G
just to meet me in the middle of the road
           Bm                                G
and you'll hold me like you'll never let me go
        Bm                           A
and beside the salty water, I could hold you close,
            D                    Bm
but you are far too beautiful to love me

Verse 2:
       D                        Bm
it's a long climb up the dusty mountain
           D                    Bm
to build a turret tall enough to keep you out
             D                           A
but when you wage your wars against the one who adores you,
            Bm                           G
then you'll never know the treasure that you're worth
         Bm                        G
but I've never been a wealthy one before
         Bm                      A
I've got holes in my pockets burned by liars' gold,
                D                       Bm
and I think I'm far too poor for you to want me

Verse 3:
            D                         Bm
it's been a long road, losing all I've owned
              D                              Bm
and you don't know what you've got until you're gone
            D                     A
and it's a nasty habit, spending all you have, but
            Bm                                G
when you're doing all the leaving, then it's never your love lost
            Bm                                   G
and if you leave before the start, then there was never love at all
            Bm                                G
and heaven knows I'm prone to leave the only God I should have loved,
               D                     Bm
and yet you're far too beautiful to leave me
