G C G
My j ob takes me  out to the pl anets
C D G
To the f urthermost st ars that we kn ow
C D G/B Em
I aw ake into da rkness and  pick up my  car keys
C Dsus4 D
And w onder ag ain why I g o
G C G
I l ook at you sl eeping bes ide me
C Bm
The sh adows flung over your f ace
Em Am7
And I k now that your heart is a w orld yet uncharted
F D
The  equal of any in sp ace
C G
I have not l ived in your l andscapes
C F G
I h ave not yet tr avelled your tr ails
C G
I've h eard what you tell of the cl iffs where you fell
F\add9 C
And the  shock when your gravity f ails.
Am7 G/B
In your h eart and your mind I am tr avelling blind;
Bm F/C
Will you th row me a light from the sh ore?
C Bm Am7 G
I'll come h ome from the st ars into  your open  arms
F C G
And the h eart that I l ong to expl ore.
G C G
There are t imes when I th ink that I kn ow you,
C D G
The w oman who's b een by my s ide
C D G/B Em
For m ore than a y ear when I f inally app ear
C Dsus4 D
From this l ong and spect acular r ide.
G C G
Then s omething I s ay reaches  inward
C Bm
And kn ots up your soul in a tw ist
Em Am7
And I fl ounder and sputter, my h eart in the gutter
F D
And w onder what landmark I m issed?

CHORUS

G C G
I kn ow there are p ilots who've m arried
C D G
Sweet w omen with n othing to h ide
C D G/B Em
They l and when they m ust and they sh rug off the d ust
C Dsus4 D
And can't w ait to get  back to their r ide.
G C G
I c ome home when ever I'm  able,
C Bm
You w atch my ship down from ab ove
Em Am7
And we k iss and we shout and we  try to find out
F D
About wh o is this person we l ove?

CHORUS

G C G
It's h ard to go b ack to the st arways
C D G
And l eave you beh ind like a dr eam
C D G/B Em
If I kn ew you more d eeply I m ight get more sl eep
C Dsus4 D
While I'm ch arting an  alien sc ene.
G C G
My n ature is st ill an expl orer's
C Bm
And  I've never loved my work m ore
Em Am
But with  all that I've found I still h urry aground
F D
To the sh adows and caves of old gh osts in their graves
C Bm Am G
And the s ecrets and sh ocks I might f ind in the r ocks
F C G
Of the h eart that I l ong to expl ore.
