Fmaj7                   Em7                  
La la la la   la la la la                    
Fmaj7                   Em7                  
La la la la   la la la la                    

Fmaj7                 Em7                    
It has often been my dream                   
Fmaj7                        Em7             
To live with one who wasn't there            
Fmaj7                          Em7           
Like an ocean fish who swam upstream         
Fmaj7         Em7
Through nets, by hooks, and hungry bears.    

Fmaj7                     Em7                
When the water grew less deep                
Fmaj7           
My fins were aching from the strain          
Em7                      
I'm swimming in my sleep                     
Fmaj7        Em7           
I know I can't go back again.                

CHORUS:
Em7*    D4/E    Em7*                   
Never lose the will to love                   
(Got the will to love)                  
Em7*    D4/E    Em7*   
Never lose the will to love.                  
(Got the will to love)  
Em7*    D4/E    Em7*           
Never lose the will to love,                  
(Got the will to love)          
Em7*    D4/E    Em7*       
Something from up above                       
(Got the will to love)      

Never lose the will.                          

Fmaj7                   Em7                   
La la la la   la la la la                     

I can be like a fire in the night             
Always warm and giving off light              
But there comes a time when I shine too bright
Oh, I'm just a fire in the night.             

And now my fins are in the air                
And my belly's scraping on the rocks          
I still think someone really cares            
And I'll keep swimming till I stop.           

CHORUS

I'm like a singer on the stage                    
With the golden lights and liquid rage            
Down from the mountains to the sea                
Cool running love keeps cleansing me              
It keeps my gills from getting dry                
But it distorts things in my eyes                 
Sometimes I see what really isn't there           
Like my true lover, and I care.                   

CHORUS

Sometimes I ramble on and on                      
And I repeat myself till all my friends are gone  
And get lost in snow and drown in rain            
And never feel the same again.                    
I remember the ocean from where I came            
Just one of millions all the same                 
But somewhere someone calls my name               
I'm a harpoon dodger, and I can't, won't be tamed.

CHORUS

Baby if I see boredom in your eyes                
I'll know my river has run dry                    
But I won't turn back with that lonely tide       
I bought that ticket and I'll take that ride.     
If we meet along the way                          
Please sway beside me, let us sway together       
Our tails together and our fins and mind          
We'll leave this water and let our scales shine   
In the sun above and the sky below                
So all the water and earth will know              

It has often been my dream                        
To live with one who wasn't there.
