intro: keyboard riff and drums (x1)

C       G   Fmaj7
If ever you had counted
C   G             Fmaj7
The centuries you threw away
C   G                 Fmaj7
And all the lies that you had started
C   G               Fmaj7
And all the chances thrown away
C  G              Fmaj7
If I set sail for new horizons
C       G                  Fmaj7
Could I still leave you waiting here?
C      G               Fmaj7
I would chase just one set of chances
C          G                Fmaj7
The others would be thrown away


E              Am     Bb                 C
Even though we tried, time wasn't on our side
E                   Am     Bb            G
Then there came the day we threw it all away
Bb      G    Bb      G    Bb      G
Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away


C  G                 Fmaj7
My winter nights are so much colder
C    G                Fmaj7
Than yours could ever be
C        G             Fmaj7
I wish I hadn't been a traveller
C                G          Fmaj7
I would not have had to go away
C          G               Fmaj7
When all is said and all is over
C   G                  Fmaj7
When all is just a memory
C              G               Fmaj7
Our ships will stay for just a moment
C            G           Fmaj7
Leaving false Gods and hypocrisy


E              Am     Bb                 C
Even though we tried, time wasn't on our side
E                   Am     Bb            G
Then there came the day we threw it all away
Bb      G    Bb      G    Bb      G   (N.C.)
Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away
E              Am     Bb                 C
Even though we tried, time wasn't on our side
E                   Am     Bb            G
Then there came the day we threw it all away
Bb      G    Bb      G    Bb      G
Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away
Bb      G    Bb      G    Bb      G
Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away
