1. We've been sweethearts for so long but now you say, "We're thru!"

†††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† G7 ††††††††††††††C

††† the love we shared is now a memory,

††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††F

††† I had built a ship of dreams and planned them all for you,

†††††††††††† G††††††††††† †††††††††††G7††††††† ††††††††C

††† and now I guess what is to be will be.

 

††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

I'll sail my ship alone with all the dreams I own,

†† G††††††††††††††† G7†††††††††††††††† †††††C

drifting out across the ocean blue,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††G

I'll sail my ship alone tho' all the sails you've torn,

†††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††† G7††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

and when it starts to sink, then I'll blame you.†††††† +G - G7 - C

2. I'm just like a ship at sea that's lost without a sail,

††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G7†††††††††††††††††† C

††† the dark clouds hide the sun from up above,

††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††F

††† and even with these broken dreams my heart will never fail,

††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† G7†††††††††††††††† C

††† for deep inside there's only one true love.

3. I gave a message to the wind to take back home to you,

††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††† G7††††††††††††† C

††† hopin' you would hear my S.O.S.

†††††† C †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††F

††† Maybe you would come back home, my darling, if you knew,

†††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† G7††††††††††††††† C

††† how much my aching heart is in distress.††††† + CHORUS
