Heaven when we’re home

NB These are the chords that match the version on the ’40 days’album. So capo on the 5th fret.

A D
Don't know what time it is, I've been up for way too long

A E D
and I'm too tired to sleep

A D
I call my mother on the phone, she wasn't home,

A E D
and now I'm wondering the street

D Bm E
I've been a fool, I've been cruel to myself

D
I've been hanging onto nothing

E A
when nothing could be worse than hanging on

D E
And something tells me there must be

E A
something better than all this


I've fallen many times in love and every time

it's been with the wrong man

Still I'm out there living one day at a time

and doing the best I can

Cuz we've all made mistakes

that seem to lead us astray

But every time they helped to get us where we are today

And that's a good a place as any

and it's probably where we're best off anyway


E
It's a long and rugged road

D A
and we don't now where it's headed

E D-A
But we know it's going to get us where we're going

E
And when we find what we're looking for

D E
we'll drop these bags and search no more

A D E
'Cuz it's going to feel like heaven when we're home

A E A
It's going to feel like heaven when we're home


There's no such thing as perfect,

and if there is we'll fnd it when we're good and dead

Trust me I've been looking

bu tonight I think I'll go and take a bath instead

And then maybe I'll walk a while

and feel the earth beneath me

They say if you stop looking

it doesn't matter if you find it

And whose to say that even if I did

it's what I'm really looking for


It's a long and rugged road

and we don't now where it's headed

But we know it's going to get us where we're going

And when we find what we're looking for

we'll drop these bags and search no more

'Cuz it's going to feel like heaven when we're home
