[Verse I]
Bm           A              G
 I find the map and draw a straight line
Bm     A                  G
 Over rivers, farms, and state lines
Bm              A               G
 The distance from 'A' to where you'd 'be'
Bm          A                  G
 It's only finger-lengths that I see

Bm            A     G
 I touch the place
Bm                    A    G
 where I'd find your face
Bm            A    G
 My fingers increases
Bm                A  G
 of distant dark places

[Verse II]
Bm           A             G
 I hang my coat up in the first bar
Bm             A                  G
 There is no peace that I've found so far
Bm             A            G
 The laughter penetrates my silence
Bm           A                G
 As drunken men find flaws in science

Bm                  A   G
 Their words mostly noises
Bm                A   G
 Ghosts with just voices
Bm                A   G
 Your words in my memory
Bm              A   G
 Are like music to me

[Chorus]
Bm              D
 I'm miles from where you are,
 A               G
I lay down on the cold ground, I,
Bm                     D
 I pray that something picks me up
   A                    C          *C  *single strum
And sets me down in your warm arms

[Verse III]
Bm     A               G
 After I have traveled so far
Bm             A           G
 We'd set the fire to the third bar
Bm               A             G
 We'd share each other like an island
Bm         A                G
 Until exhausted, close our eyelids

Bm                  A      G
 And dreaming, pick up from
Bm                 A     G
 The last place we left off
Bm                 A   G
 Your soft skin is weeping
Bm               A     G
 A joy you can't keep in

[Chorus]
Bm              D
 I'm miles from where you are,
 A               G
I lay down on the cold ground, and I,
Bm                     D
 I pray that something picks me up
   A                    C
And sets me down in your warm arms

Bm              D
 I'm miles from where you are,
 A               G
I lay down on the cold ground, and I,
Bm                     D
 I pray that something picks me up
   A                    C          *C  *single strum
And sets me down in your warm arms
