D D
O I never asked to be your mountain
C C
I never asked to fly
D D
Remember when you came to me
C C
And told me of his lies
D D
You didn't understand my love
C C
You don't know why I try
D D
And the rain was falling on that day
C C
And damn the reason why

D D
The Flying Pisces sails for time
C C
And tells me of my child
D D
Wrapped in bitter tales and heartache
C C
He begs for just a smile
D D
O he never asked to be her mountain
C C
He never asked to fly
D D
And through his eye he comes his love
C C
And tells her not to cry

D D
She says, "Your scoundrel father flies
C C
With a dancer called a queen
D D
And with her stolen cards he plays
C C
And laughs, but never wins
D D
O the child dreams to be his hands
C C
In the counting of the rain
D D
But only barren breasts he feels
C C
For her milk will never drain

G G F F
As I die I can't remember
G G F F
Where I saw the rain
G G
Could it be that her laughter
F F
Drove me down again?
G G
Charming dancer will you stop,
F F
Stop and talk to me?
G G
Is there someone else you feel
F F
In your dreams? you will, you see:
G G
In midnight gazes
F F
I've found you far from me
G G
If you lead me on
F F
Please leave me down

G G
O Flying Flying Fish
F F
Please flutter by my door
G G
Yes you can drink my lies
F F
If first you read my eyes:
G G
Each one is titled
F F
"I'm drowning back to you";
G G
I can't swim your waters
F F
And you can't walk my lands:
G G
I'm sailing all my sins
F F
And I'm climbing all my fears
D D C C D D C C
And soon now I'll fly

D D
O I never asked to be your mountain
C C
I never asked to fly
D D
Remember when you came to me
C C
And told me of his lies
D D
You didn't understand my love
C C
You don't know why I try
D D
And the rain was falling on that day
C C
And that's the reason why

D D
Sweet lover, will you come back
C C
And love me for a while?
D D
Please take my hand
C C
Leave all your fears behind
D D
I've been gone too long
C C
Now I'm home to stay
D D
Please don't leave me
C C
Again this way
D D C C
Don't leave me again this way...
D D C C D D
Sweet lover....O please...
C C D D C C D D
O please....O please...please.... please come home...
C C
Please come home...
