1. So you come to my world, I can show you,

†††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††G

††† where they lead to the footprints in the sand,

†† ††††††††††††††A†††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Bm†††††† ††- D

††† on the paths through the valleys and canyons,††

††††††††††† †††A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† to the veins in your arms, take my hand.

 

†††††††††††† Bm†††††† †††††F#m†††††††† †††††C

Iím the man on the rocks on the island,

†††††††† C†††††††††††††††††† ††G†††††††††††† ††D

the black pearl, the fool on the hill,

††† ††††††††††D†††† ††††††††F#m†††††††††† C

Iím the gold at the end of the rainbow,

†††C†††††††† ††††G††††††††† ††††D

if I ask you to follow, you will.

 

††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm †††††††- D

2. So you come to my world to find freedom,††

††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† give you wings to the stars, you can fly,

††††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm †††††††- D

††† bring you hope and a dream to believe in,††

††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† as you float though the dark crimson sky.

 

†††††††††††† Bm††††††††††† F#m††††††††††††† C

Iím the man on the rocks on the island,

†††††† C†††††††††††† †††††G††††††††††††††† D

the jewel in the crown of the king,

††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††† F#m††††††††††††† C

Iím the hope in the hearts of the helpless,

†††††††† C†††††††††† †††G††††††††††††††† A

the choir where no one will sing.

 

†††††††††††††††††† ††††D††††††††††††† ††††††A

††† There is a trail out of the canyon,

††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† thereís a new life waiting out there,

††††††††††† †††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

††† itíll take you home, out of this chasm,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††

††† where thereís blue sky, sunlight to share.

 

††††††††††††††† ††D††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em†††††††††††† - G

3. So you come to my world to escape it all,††

†††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

††† and youíre running from the dragons and the fools,

†††††††††††††††††††††††† D ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em†††††††††††††† - G

††† through the dark empty caverns deep in your soul,††

††††††† D†††††††††††† ††††††††††††††C

††† chasing the tiger, the jewels.

 

†††††††††† Em††††††††††††† Bm††††††††† †††††F

Iím the man on the rocks on the island,

††††††† ††††††F†††††††††† †††††C†††††††††††† ††G†††††††

Iím the beggar, the loser, the cheat,

†††††††††††††††† ††††G††††††††††††††† Bm†††††††† ††††F

so now you come to the gates for redemption,

††††††††††† F†††††††††††† C††††††† ††††††††††D

with a ball and chain at your feet.

 

†††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† D

††† Thereís a trail out of the canyon,

†††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

††† thereís a new life waiting out there,

††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

††† Itíll take you home, out of this chasm,
