Mermaid by Train


Train

Whoa, whoa

Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote

Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before

Stayed there till the air was clear

I was bored and out of tears, then I saw you washed up on the shore

I offered you my coat, thank god this luck can float

Crazy how that shipwreck meant my ship was comin’ in

We talked till the sun went down

Love on the Pugit Sound

My treasure map was on your skin



Beauty in the water, angel on the beach

Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach

Till I got her, had I known it could come true

I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa


Shocks scream with envy, they wonder what you see in me

Funny thoughts sometimes can’t help but wonder that as well

Now life is a holiday, making up for the years I paid

The way to this heavenly bay… it went through hell


Beauty in the water, angel on the beach

Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach

Till I got her, had I known it could come true

I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa


Rescued you by the banyon tree, all the girlfish in the sea

Puttin’ up a candle to you, they don’t have a handle on you, they don’t have a scandal on you

Holler back will save you

… saving me was B-I-G, all the boyfish in the sea

They all wish that they could be me


Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote

Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before


Beauty in the water, angel on the beach

Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach

Till I got her, had I known it could come true

I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa


Just like you, just like you

To Be Loved Chords by Train

To Be Loved Chords
Train


Finally met Virginia on a slow summer night 
                           D  
Thought I should forgive ya so I came back 
   A
You’re a sight for sore eyes 
   D
They save me after all
A
Right from the beginning we were wrong I found 
D
But no one did it better baby pound for pound 
 A
Those heavyweights fights were right for me 
 D
To learn how to see the light clearly



A E  D
No, dont go Ill show you what its like to be loved
A E  D
No, dont go Ill show you what its like to be loved
A E    D
Ba-da-da-da-da-da-da-da what its like to be loved
A E    D
Ba-da-da-da-da-da-da-da what its like to be loved
A
Now that things are better for me I can laugh 
      D
At all your other lovers when you do the math 
   E
Does it make you feel sad, make you feel small? 
    D
Thank God it ain’t about me anymore
A
I’m not coming back for round 2
    D
I just want to love you like a friend would do 
A
You weren`t wrong for the feelings you had 
D
But the man I was isn`t coming back 
      D      A   E
When you say it`s over I lost my head
 D
And now that we`re older I `m giving up on being right

A        E  D
No, dont go Ill show you what its like to be loved
A        E  D
No, dont go Ill show you what its like to be loved
A        E  D
Ba-da-da-da-da-da-da-da what its like to be loved
A    E              D
I  lost my head what its like to be loved
A        E               D
And now that were older what it’s like to be loved
