[Verse 1]
       Am               F
In the pale moonlight.....
                    Am              F
In the dark, in the dead of night.....
                    Am            Dm
Second hand from a star it shines....
The fire’s on

[Verse 2]
                 Am          Dm
Cold touch of an ancient rhyme
                     Am        Dm
There's a god that I left behind
                 Am              Dm
Second-hand everywhere I find.......
                F    E
The fire’s gone........

[Pre-Chorus]
                             F    
They told me keep to your course
                    E
In chasin' after desire
                     F
I'm not findin' a source
          G
Like some sun-gold fire

[Chorus]
          Am        F        C    G
But maybe I’ve been sold a lie......
Am      F          C    G
I can’t find a light......
          Am     F           C       G
Tell me how many go down and never return
         Am       F              C
To the sunlit lands, heaven please
          E            Am    F    Am
Have I lost 'em for good.......

[Verse 3]
                               F
Had a dream where I went to find
               Am          F
Far away, over seas and time
                     Am           F            Am  F
The lost shores of a distant island, for so long....

[Verse 4]
               Am           F
Woke up to the pale moonlight
                 Am          F
Cold touch of an ancient rhyme
                 Am                   F
Second-hand everywhere, I'll find it....
            Am    F    E
The first one............

[Pre-Chorus]
                               F    
They told me keep to your course
                    E
In chasin' after desire
                     F
I'm not findin' a source
          G
Like some sun-gold fire

[Chorus]
          Am        F        C    G
But maybe I’ve been sold a lie......
Am      F          C    G
I can’t find a light......
          Am     F           C       G
Tell me how many go down and never return
         Am       F              C    E
To the sunlit lands, heaven please......
          Am        F        C    G
But maybe I’ve been sold a lie......
Am      F          C    G
I can’t find a light......
          Am     F           C       G
Tell me how many go down and never return
         Am       F              C
To the sunlit lands, heaven please
          E         Am    
Have I lost 'em for good
