Verse

                G   Cmaj7
We sent out the SOS call
         G           Cmaj7
It was a quater past four 
       G
In the morning
         Cmaj7           Em            Em7
When the storm broke our second anchor line.
G              Cmaj7
Four months at sea.
     G              Cmaj7
Four months of calm seas
           G              Cmaj7
Only to be pounded in the shallows
           Em             Em7
Off of the tip of Montauk Point.


G              Cmaj7
They call them rogues.
            G        Cmaj7
They travel fast and alone,
    G            Cmaj7 
One hundred foot faces
              Em         Em7
Of God's good ocean gone wrong
               G         Cmaj7
What they call love is a risk,
               G          Cmaj7
Cause you will always get hit
       G
Out of nowhere 
        Cmaj7        Em         Em7
By some wave and end up on your own.


Chorus

C               G   
The hole in the hull defied the crews attempts 
Em         Em7
To bail us out.
C               G
And flooded the engines and radio
Em              Em7
And half buried bow.


Verse
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/brand_new/play_crack_the_sky_crd.html ]
     G           Cmaj7
Your tongue is a rudder.
   G                Cmaj7
It steers the whole ship.
           G               Cmaj7
Sends your words past your lips
              Em               Em7
Or keeps them safe behind your teeth.
        G                Cmaj7
But the wrong words will strand you.
         G                Cmaj7
Come off course while you sleep.
           G           Cmaj7
Sweep your boat out to sea
                Em          Em7
Or dashed it to bits on the reef.


G          Cmaj7
The vessel groans
          G             Cmaj7
The ocean pressures its frame.
        G              Cmaj7
Off the port I see the lighthouse
            Em            Em7
Through the sleet and the rain.
           G            Cmaj7
And I wish for one more day 
           G              Cmaj7
To give my love and repay debts.
        G                 Cmaj7
But the morning finds our bodies
          Em           Em7
Washed up thirty miles west.


Chorus

C                 G
They say that the captain 
                    Em
Stays fast with the ship 
                  Em7
Through still and storm.
C                  G
But this ain't the Dakota.
                 Em
And the water is cold.
                           Em7
We won't have to fight for long.



Ending

            G
This is the end.

This story's old

But it goes on and on 
         Cmaj7
Until we disappear.

Calm me and let me taste
 
The salt that you breathed
               G
While you were underneath.

I am the one who haunts your dreams
                            Cmaj7
Of mountains sunk below the sea.

I spoke the words but never
                                      Em
Gave a thought to what they all could mean.

I know that this is what you want.
                           Em7
A funeral keeps both of us apart.

You know that you are not alone.
                          G
Need you like water in my lungs.
