  Intro:   Em    (G)  D  (2x) 


Em               (G)   D 
 Waiting for the bus stop 
Em                         (G)   D 
 Waiting for the concrete black top to settle down 
Em                     (G)  D             A           
    C 
 Long enough for me to get off and get a little ground 

Em                 (G)    D 
 I'm ready for the sea change 
Em                  (G)            D 
 Helpless felt this coming from a mile away 
Em                        (G)  D                 A    
                 G 
 And now you're looking at me babe, and how we'll separate if we can 
                             G        Bm                    C 
 Cause I still count on one hand the number of good men I know 


                 D                              Em 
 It's like I'm standing on the edge with just a telephone wire 
            C 
 Trying to get to you first to say the world's on fire 
D                           Em 
 Holding my breath until I know you're alright 
              C 
 Because the water will only rise 

 When will you realize 
D                   Em 
 You must become an island 
C                   G 
 You must become an island 
  D                 Em 
 You must become an island 
      C 
 And see for yourself that that's what I am 


 Em      (G)  D   (2x) 


Em                       (G)  D 
 You always dirty up the windows 
         Em 
 If you keep 'em at bay that way 
          (G)        D                         Em 
 No one's gonna surprise you by getting too close 
             (G)   D 
 Anybody but me though 
                A                      G 
 You've made exceptions to your rules 
                              G           Bm                   G 
 And now we're staring down truth neither one of us wants to know 


                 D                              Em 
 It's like I'm standing on the edge with just a telephone wire 
            C 
 Trying to get to you first to say the world's on fire 
D                           Em 
 Holding my breath until I know you're alright 
              C 
 Because the water will only rise 

 When will you realize 
D                   Em 
 You must become an island 
C                   G 
 You must become an island 
  D                 Em 
 You must become an island 
      C                     G                D       Em 
 And see for yourself the horizon is all we have 
      C                     G                D        
Em        C 
 And see for yourself the horizon is all we have 


D                           Em 
 Holding my breath until I know you're alright 
              C 
 Because the water will only rise
