[Verse 1]
     D                 Em   G    D
Ever since the world began    (oowie)
         D              Em    G    D
Men have sailed foreign lands   (oowie)
        D                    Em   G    D
And the fortune that they've found  (oowie)
       D             Em      G    D
Is now buried in the ground    (oowie).

[Verse 2]
     D                   Em    G    D
Some would say the ocean roars   (oowie)
      D               Em   G    D
As it stumbles to the shore  (oowie)
       D          Em   G    D
But to me it only sings  (oowie)
       D              Em   G    D
Of the sorrow that it brings (oowie).

[Chorus]
A                                   G     D
All my friends are dead, or they're dying
A                            G      D
And our laughter turns into crying
             G       D    A
It's death-defying

[Verse 3]
        D                 Em   G    D
Well, I barely learned to swim   (oowie)
      D                Em   G    D
Just enough to save my skin   (oowie)
     D               Em   G    D
Now I'll never sail alone   (oowie)
       D             Em   G    D
And my harbour is my home   (oowie)

D Em G D (3x)

All my friends are dead, or they're dying
A                           G      D
And our laughter turns into crying

It's death-defying

If there's one thing that I've learned  (oowie)
         D             Em   G    D
It's the point of no return   (oowie)
       D                Em   G    D
And if that's to be our fate  (oowie)
         D          Em   G   D
Now's no time to hesitate (oowie)
D        Em      G            D
Now's no time to hesitate
D        Em      G   D
Now's no time to hesitate
