       C	  	   F          	C	G
The wind won’t blow around me anymore
	C	F		Am7	        G
I remember a time when I wished it were so
F		     Am7		  F	      C
That which was changing is now constantly static
       F			           G
The redundancy’s no place to go

C/E	G/B	  C
I always loved the rain
	  F	       C		G
Though I never much cared for the wind
	F	       Am7	       G			C
But I think I could live with the gales and the pain
			F				G
That’d come from learning to love someone again

	F	C	G	C
So as I sit and wait for my sails to fill
    F		C	G
I cock my head back and look up above
F	C		Am7	  G
I ask my friends the stars why in the hell
	F		G	C
Am I stuck in the doldrums of love

I remember back when I first set sail
I found the best storm I could find
I battened down my hatches and rehearsed all my lines
I sailed straight for her eye

And she blew me away
I don’t even know where I am
All I can feel for miles and miles
Is the pain that comes from blue skies with no sign of land

So as I sit and wait for my sails to fill
I cock my head back and look up above
I ask my friends the stars why in the hell
Am I stuck in the doldrums of love

The stars are my friends and they don’t know why
I’m stuck in the doldrums of love
