Gmaj7   Bm7           Am7   D7
All I believe in is a dream
Gmaj7       Bm7               Am7       D7
I haunt the Earth though I am fully seen
Gmaj7      Bm7              Am7                 D7
In all my years I've never felt more sure than now
Gmaj7   Bm7                  Am7      D7
Well, I got to get off this rock somehow

Gmaj7            Bm7                    Am7
I feel so homesick Where's my home Where I
belong Where I was born
      Gmaj7                Bm7
I was told to go Where the wind would blow
        Am7       D7
And it blows away - away

Well, my eyes are full of stars
But I just can't reach 'em
Oh, how high they are
I got to believe what I'm seeing can come true
But in a modern world, that can be so hard to do

I feel so homesick
Where's my home?
Where I belong, or where I was born
Now, I was told to go where the wind would blow
And it blows away

I wake up, rise to the sun
I go to work
And I come back home
I wake up
Rise to the sun
I go to work
And I come back home
