Passenger – The Long Road

 : D G Em A Bm F#m

Capo: 7th

intro: D Fingerpicking (D Only)

D
We've walked the long road and you've worn it well.
                                     G
You stitched yourself up when you fell.
 Em
Keep your memories in jars,
A
Carry secrets in scars
                  D
Beneath your shell.

D

D
You've seen some good days, and some bad ones too. 
                                   G
You weave through fashion and trend. 
Em                                           A
       You've seen a sun rise on an ocean blue, 
   D
You've seen it set for the dearest of friends 
G                            A   Em      A
       You found faith but you, chose to doubt it. 
D                            Bm        
       You found love but you, left without it. 

Em

G              A
And now you don't want, to talk about it. 

D

D
You travelled down through foreign lands,

Touched mountain tops and golden sand, 
                                         G
Seen pyramids and temples made of stone.
 Em
Keep seashells in a cashmere scarf,
A
A treasured book of photographs 
D
In every single one you stand alone. 

D

D
You've seen Vienna and the Berlin wall,

As you watched the decades fall
                                              G
The letters that you wrote never made it home. 

Em
Your birthdays flew past like June, 
A
With Christmas days in hotel rooms
D
And new year's eve with people you don't know. 

G                                  A     Em           A
       You built friendships but they, sailed without you.
D                                      Bm
   You never meant it and that's why, they doubt you. 
Em

G        A
They don't ever talk about you. 

D

Em
You're older than you used to be,
A
The mirror weaves a tapestry 
D                         F#m                       Bm
Of lines that dance and shimmer 'round your eyes.
Em                           A
You stare back at a man, forever holding out his hand
F#m                          D                   Bm
As if the answer's gonna to fall out of the sky. 

Em
But the penny never dropped, 
F#m    G       A                  D
And no man has ever stopped time flying by.
