Verse One

Bm     A/C#        E/G#                     Bm    
You're only just a dreamboat, sailing in my head 

    A/C#           E/G#                     Bm
You swim my secret oceans of coral blue and red

     A/C#             E/G#                          Gmaj7
Your smell is incense burning, your touch is silken yet

                      D                     Gmaj7                 F#
It reaches through my skin, Moving from within, it clutches at my breast


Chorus

                     Bm                     D7
But it's only when I sleep, I see you in my dreams, 

                E                        Em     A
Got me spinning round and round, turning upside down

                    Bm                       D7
But I only hear you breathe, somewhere in my sleep, 

                E                        Em     A
Got me spinning round and round, turning upside down

                     Bm
But it's only when I sleep


Verse Two

Bm  A/C#             E/G#                        Bm    
And when I wake from slumber, your shadow's disappeared

     A/C#             E/G#                      Bm
Your breath is just a sea mist surrounding my body

    A/C#                E/G#                          Gmaj7
I'm working through the daytime but when it's time to rest

                D                    Gmaj7                    F#
I'm lying in my bed, listening to my breath, falling from the edge

                E                        Em     A
Got me spinning round and round, turning upside down

But it's only when I sleep

                      D                     Gmaj7                 F#
It reaches through my skin, Moving from within, it clutches at my breast


Chorus

                     Bm                     D7
But it's only when I sleep, I see you in my dreams, 

                E                        Em     A
Got me spinning round and round, turning upside down

                    Bm                       D7
But I only hear you breathe, somewhere in my sleep, 

                E                        Em     A
Got me spinning round and round, turning upside down

                     Bm
But it's only when I sleep
