Verse1
					       G                    D
You know a dream is like a river, ever changing as it flows
                 G                    D/F#                    Em7          
       A     
And the dreamer's just a vessel, that must follow where is goes
                  D          G/D          D	Bm	     G
Trying to learn from what's behind you, and never knowing what's in store
                          D    G/D      D                A                 
                 D  G/D  D
Makes each day a constant battle, just to stay between the shores

Chorus
                  D   G/D  D                 G/D        D 
And I will sail my vessel, 'til the river runs dry
         G                       D/F#       Em7                 A          

Like bird upon the wind, these water's are my sky
      Bm  A/C#      D   G/D    D           G
I'll never          reach my destination, if I never try
              D   G/D   D                  A                   D
So I will sail my vessel, 'til the river runs dry

Verse 2
Too many times we stand aside, and the waters slip away
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow, has now become today
So don't you sit upon the shoreline, and say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids, and dare to dance the tide
Yes I will

Chorus
A/C#            Bm                         G
And there's bound to be rough waters
            D     D/F#               G
And I know I'll take some falls
                       Em7                      D/F#
But with the Good Lord as my captain
           G                                    Asus
I can make it through them all

Yes I will
E    A/E    E                 A/E                   E
Sail my vessel, 'til the river runs dry
         A                    E/G#          F#m7              B
Like bird upon the wind, these water's are my sky
      C#m B/D#           E     A/E     E          A            
I'll never                 reach my destination, if I never try
                E  A/E   E                  B           E  F#m7 
E/G# 
So I will sail my vessel, 'til the river runs dry
A               E   A/E   E                 B            A    
             B/A           A
Yes I will sail my vessel, 'til the river runs dry
                      B/A       E
'Til the river runs dry
