G  D
Bm  G  D
D

[Verse 1]
G                       D
It must be the morning again,
    G               D     
The sun through the window 
      D          A
felt good on my skin,
      Bm              G   
So it must be leaving soon,
        D        D
 as it should.

[Verse 2]
  G       D         D
I saw the bluebird again,
    G          D         
She pointed it out in the 
 D           A
yard on our fence,
      Bm              G    
So it must be leaving soon,
       D        D
 as it should.
[Chorus]
         G
When I’m standing by water,
        A
It gets harder and harder,
     Bm                 
It’s why I get sad when 
        G                   G
there’s ships in the harbor,
           D               A   
Cause they must be leaving soon,
          D     D
 as they should.

[Interlude]
D

[Verse 3]
G        D          D
I got to see an old friend,
   G                  D 
We laughed and stayed up 
         D          A
till it came to an end,
         Bm              G
Cause he must be leaving soon,
      D        D
As he should.

[Verse 4]
  G           D           D
I tend to get lost in the stars,
  G           D              
I waste every night wondering
 D            A
 where we all are,
           Bm              G   
And how we must be leaving soon,
        D        D
 as we should.

[Chorus]
         G
When I’m standing by water,
        A
It gets harder and harder,
     Bm                 
It’s why I get sad when 
        G            D      G
there’s ships in the harbor,
           D               
Cause they must, be leaving
 A             D     D
 soon, as they should.

[Verse 5]
   G             D   
It takes time to know 
             D
when you’re wrong,
   G          D     
It takes even longer 
           D        A
to put it all in a song,
      Bm          D    G  
And I wish it was easy to, 
      D        D
like he did.

[Chorus]
         G
When I’m by peaceful waters,
        A
It gets harder and harder,
    Bm                  G
I’d do anything just to talk
 to my father,
      D                   
But I guess he was leaving
 A           Bm   Bm
 soon, as we do.

[Outro]
       D                   
Yeah I guess, he was passing 
  A                 D
through; and I am too.
