Southern Cross

Mason Jennings

 

Capo 1

 

Dm                     

I woke up at 4:35

G

still jet lagged from another plane ride

      C
And opened my window over Bondi beach

           F
Where all the stars seemed out of reach

       Dm
And recognized none but the southern cross

 G
Sitting on my bed with the light turned off

     C
Till I found a sweet song on the little clock

F

radio and it made me cry

             Dm
Singing have some faith,

G

have some faith

 

Chorus:

      C                              F                                           
And I don't know what I want

                                        (C)

but I know where I want to be

                          F                                          (C)
And everywhere i go, I wish you were here with me

C                             F
Stars hang on tiny strings,

        F                                   (C)

my dreams are made of memories

                                  F
Once everything made sense, now I get so alone that

C  G      F (x2)

I can't sleep

        Dm                                            G                                 C (x5)
Will somebody please tell me if this is where I'm supposed to be

 

Dm             

Bottles on the table and socks on the floor

G
Trying to remember what i started this for

              C
When a surfer friend of mine came and picked me up

             F
And we paddled out as the sun was coming up

 Dm
Talking about how everybody has to find

G
Something that gives them the strength to be alive

      C
And out laying on our boards in the southern

  F

hemisphere, he said to me

          Dm                    G
Gotta have some faith, have some faith

Chorus
