[Verse 1]

Dm               C#aug   Dm7/C        G/B

So I send an S.O.S.,       sema - phore myself,

Gm/A#             A        A7    Dm     F A

Catch me falling, final - ly,

Dm                          C#aug

Through the air and underground,

Dm7/C           G/B

Every - where this sound,

Gm/A#                A       A7        Dm     F A

Screams and whispers, I can't breathe

[Verse 2]

   Dm          C#aug   Dm7/C                    G/B

I feel it in my bones,     ...though I know I'm not alone,

Gm/A#                  A       A7       Dm   F A

You're spinning far too far from me,

    Dm            C#aug  Dm7/C                  G/B

So cruel to be so kind,        now I know I'll always find...

Gm/A#                 A      A7     Dm   F A

...This island Earth a myste - ry

[Verse 3]

Dm                C#aug           Dm7/C              G/B

As I stumble through the dark,  ...dream lovers dream apart,

Gm/A#                  A      A7   Dm    F A

Starry eyed a vision rushes in,

Dm               C#aug

Do I wonder        ...or care?

Dm7/C               G/B                Gm/A#

My spirit's bleeding, God knows where,

A     A7     Dm  Dm7    F A

A never ending stream

[Verse 4]

Dm             C#aug

I tried to love,        ...tried to find,

Dm7/C               G/B           Gm/A#        A     A7     Dm   F A

My soul in shadows running blind and restless as the sea,

      Dm                  C#aug   Dm7/C              G/B

Via sidewalks, through the haze,     ...wandering as in a maze,

Gm/A#            A      A7       Dm     F A

Lost in number, time and space

[Verse 5]

   Dm             C#aug  Dm7/C                 G/B

So near and yet so far,      ...castaway, as strangers are,

Gm/A#               A         A7     Dm Dm7 Dm   F A

This island Earth, and you and me
