 Intro: | E   |

 Verse 1:

 (E)
   I have returned, to northern skies,
               E
   Where the summer hasn't touched, the clouds that pass above
 (E)
   I have returned, to the somber grace,
               E
   Of the days too early to come, and too hurried to stay.

 Verse 2:
 (E)
   Oh I have left, a million stars,
          E
   And an ocean light, and clearly blue.
 (E)
   And I have left, the warmth of the sun,
           E
   And a million adventures, not yet begun.

 Chorus 1:
     E
  For once there was beauty here for me,
        E
  Under the wide_____, northern skies
     E
  And once there was magic here for me,
        E
  Under the wide_____, northern skies.

 Verse 3:

 (E)
   I saw trees as green, and this dark as blue,
           E
   Heartbreak and poetry, with deeper roots
 (E)
   Now I know, this is lonely country,
           E
   And it leads me only, back to the sea.


 Chorus 2:

     E
  For once there was beauty here for me,
        E
  Under the wide_____, northern skies,
     E
  And once there was magic here for me,
        E
  Under the wide_____, northern skies.

 (E
   I have returned, to northern skies,
               E
   Where the summer hasn't touched, the clouds that pass above
 (E)

                E
   Of the days too early to come, and too hurried to stay.

        E
  Under the wide_____, northern skies,
