Verse:
AbmAbm chord                     EE chord 
Come to decide that the things that I tried

But I need more than myself this time

AbmAbm chord                       EE chord
Step from the road to the sea to the sky
      BB chord              GbGb chord
And I do believe it we rely on

AbmAbm chord
When I lay it on

All my life to sacrifice

Verse - same as first -:
When will I know that I really can´t go
To the well once more time to decide on
When it's killing me
When will I really see
All that I need to look inside
Come to believe that I better not leave
Before I get my chance to ride
When it's killing me
What do I really need
All that I need to look inside

BB chord                         GbGb chord
People need the cover of another perfect wonder
DbmDbm chord
Where it's so white as snow

BB chord                      GbGb chord
Privately divided by a work so undecided
              DbmDbm chord  
And there's nowhere to go

Running through a field where all my tracks will be concealed

and there is nowhere to go

Oh!

Verse - same as first -:
When to descend to amend for a friend
all the channels that are broken down
Now you bring it up
I'm gonna ring it up
Just to hear you sing it out
Step from the road to the sea to the sky
And I do believe what we rely on
When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice
