On a long run, on a long run
Cmaj7          Em   Bm
Would I were beside her
Cmaj7             G      D
She's a long one, such a long one

On the highline, on the highline

I am the heart that you call home
                 Bm         Em
And I've written pages upon pages
          C               F E
Trying to rid you from my bones
   F E
My bones

My bones
