English

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You'll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing it loud

I paid the cost too late
Now you're gone..

Chords

C      
Ní aithním thú, 
F
ach teastaíonn tú 
C               F
uaim níos mó dá bharr.
C
Tá mo bhriathra 
F
'dhéanamh grinn dom, 
C                  F
ní fhéadaim tada a rá

Am         G
Cluichí 's cleasanna nach 
F	    G
gciallaíonn tada ach 
Am       G            F
a imíonn tharainn mar cheo.

C                  F
Tabhair an bád atá fós ar snámh
  Am              F
a-bhaile slán gan mhoill;
C               F
Glór is dóchas, tá rogha fós ann,
   Am                F
(A)nois, táir slán a chroí.
