    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
