LYRICS/CHORDS

Fading Away


(Am) I was at the breakwall, I was looking at the sea
In (D) back of an eight ball (Am) in some misery
There on the horizon stood a mighty ship of fools
They were (D) headed into the harbour with (Am) all their broken rules

Whenever I'm feeling (C) lonely I can (D) just pick up the (Am) phone
Or I can go to the (C) movies or just (D) stay at home a(Am)lone
They're better off to be (C) someplace that's a
(D) Good long way from (Am) home
(D) Anyway I can lose myself, (C) the dawn is breaking, I'm (D) hesitating
I'm (A) (G) (D) Fading a(A)way, (G) (D) fading a(A)way (G) (D) (A)

They sailed right up to meet me, I said what's it all about
Please try to excuse me, we can work things out
If you've ever wondered if that mighty ship is real
Let me tell ya 'bout it brother, it was something you could feel

Whenever I'm feeling lonely I let twilight set the tone
Or I can go to the movies or just stay at home alone
They're better off to be someplace that's a good long way to roam
Ain't living high on the hog right now
Dawn is breaking, I'm hesitatin', I'm
Fading away, fading away

One more day on the calendar in my mind
I am down around the breakwall putting in some time
The whole ship of fools has gotten safely under way
And I was proud to be a part of what it was they had to say

Whenever I'm feeling lonely I can just pick up the phone
Or I can go to the movies or just stay at home alone
They're better off to be someplace that's a good long piece from home
Anyway I can lose myself
Dawn is breaking, I'm hesitating, I'm
Fading away, fading away
Fading away, fading away  (G) (D)
