            'We Didn't Mean To Go To Sea'
                                         by Declan O'Rourke


Tabbed by *Alan4*

Intro:
       D   Bm   D   Bm


Verse 1:
D                  Bm
Along the quayside you were a light
D                          Bm
And I, a reflection, lay across the river and the night
D                          Bm
You were transfixed on me and I was mesmerised
G
And names were whispered to and by you and I



Verse 2:
D                         Bm
The tides began to steal away from morning light
D                         Bm
As night receded river walls seemed to grow high
D                         Bm
Then you climbed down into my arms and closed your eyes
G
When we awoke we had been drifting

Chorus:
D 
We didn't mean to go to sea
Bm/A
We didn't mean to drift away 
Bm
We never planned to up and leave
G
But still the sea took us away
D
We saw no lands on the horizon
Bm/A
No distant shores along the fray
Bm
Yet all the more we found ourselves
G
When we got lost at sea that day




Verse 3:
D                         Bm
Timbers creaked, all else was quiet and relieved
D                         Bm
Except the infant waves that licked and lapped along the eaves
D                         Bm
It had to dawn on us, our truth had been believed
G
Beyond all lies and jealousy




Verse 4:
D
We sailed high wind half-mast
Bm                                   D
Due north, towards the edge of our dreams grateful borders
Bm
That matched our speed to stay ahead
D
The afternoon was bleeding to death
Bm
And soon the sky was racing red
G
To see the stars remove their hats out of respect



(Chorus Repeat)
