(1)

Just a castaway
An island lost at sea
Another lonely day
With no one here but me
More loneliness
Than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair

(2) I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
(3) Message in a bottle (4)

(1) A chord diagramA augmentedA year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
Love can mend your life
But love can break your heart

(2) I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
(3) Message in a bottle (4)

(1) Walked out this morning
Don't believe what I saw
A chord diagramA augmentedA hundred billion bottles
Washed up on the shore
Seems I'm not alone at being alone
A chord diagramA augmentedA hundred billion castaways
Looking for a home
(2) I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
(3) Message in a bottle (4)

Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
(5) I'm sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
