  Intro:     Em      (G)  D        x 2


 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      x 2


 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 C 
 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
