                [Intro]

C Am Em

Em C


[Verse 1]
                                Am
The fires continued through the night
                                        Em                                          C
The kid with a bat face appeared at the window then €…disappeared into the headlights
                             Am
I was halfway to the Pacific €…Coast
                       Em                                     C
I had left you in your longing and your yearning like a ghost
                        Am                              Em           C
There's little room for wonder now, and little room for wildness too
           Am                 Em                           C
We crawl into our wounds, I'm nearly all the way to Malibu
                    Am                   Em
I'm gonna buy me a house up in the hills
                                             C
With a tear-shaped pool and a gun that kills
                          Am
Cause they say there is a cougar that roams these parts
       Em                                   C
With a terrible engine of wrath for a heart
                      Am
That she is white and rare and full of all kinds of harm
    Em                                C
And stalks the perimeter all day long
                                  Am   Em C
But at night lays trembling in my arms


[Chorus]
             Am          Em                   C
And I'm just waiting now, for my time to come
             Am          Em                   C
And I'm just waiting now, for my time to come
             Am          Em                       C
And I'm just waiting now, for my place in the sun
             Am          Em                  C
And I'm just waiting now, for peace to come



Am Em C  x4


[Verse 2]
             Am                  Em           C
And I'm just waiting now, for my time to come
              Am        Em                    C
And I'm just waiting now, for my time to come
       Am                 Em                               C
And we hide in our wounds I'm nearly all the way to Malibu
                   Am                     Em
And I know my time will come one day soon
                              C
I'm waiting for peace to come
           Am                    Em
I'm nearly all the way to Malibu
                                                             C
Oh babe we're on the run, we're on the run, we're on the run
                   Am          Em
Halfway down the Pacific Coast
                                              C Am Em   C Am Em C
Well I left you sleeping like a ghost in your wounds
              Am                           Em
Darling your dreams are your greatest part
                                 C
I carry them with me in my heart
              Am                           Em
Darling your dreams are your greatest part
                                 C
I carry them with me in my heart
         Am      Em   C
Somewhere, don't know


Am Em C x3


[Verse 3]
                              Am
Now I'm standing on the shore
                                 Em
All the animals roam the beaches
                                  C
Sea creatures rise out of the sea
                              Am
And I'm standing on the shore
                       Em
Everyone begins to run
                                   N.C.
The kid drops his bucket and spade

And climbs into the sun


C Am Em x2


[Verse 4]
C           Am                 Em   C
 Kisa had a baby, but the baby died
            Am                         Em     C
Goes to the villagers, says "My baby's sick!"
                      Am
Villagers shake their heads and say to her
                  Em
"Better bury your baby in the forest quick"


[Refrain]
       C           Am            Em
It's a long way to find peace of mind, peace of mind
       C           Am            Em                  C
It's a long way to find peace of mind, peace of mind


[Verse 5]
                 Am
Kisa went to the mountain and asked the Buddha
           Em                              C
"My baby's sick!" Buddha said, "Don't cry"
                                        Am
"Go to each house and collect a mustard seed
                            Em             C
But only from a house where no one's died"
                  Am
Kisa went to each house in the village
                   Em                       C
"My baby's getting sicker", poor Kisa cried
                             Am
But Kisa never collected one mustard seed
                Em               C
In every house, someone had died
                     Am
Kisa sat down in the old village square
               Em                       C
She hugged her baby and cried and cried
                      Am
She said everybody is always losing somebody
     Em
Then walked into the forest and buried her child


[Refrain]
C    Am                    Em
Everybody's losing someone
C    Am                    Em
Everybody's losing someone
C                  Am            Em                 
It's a long way to find peace of mind, peace of mind
C                  Am            Em                 
It's a long way to find peace of mind, peace of mind


[Chorus]
C            Am                  Em          
And I'm just waiting now, for my time to come
C            Am               Em
And I'm just waiting now, for peace to come
             C
For peace to come
