More loneliness that man could bear.
Rescue me before I fall into despair-o.

Message in a bottle.
A year has passed since I wrote my note.
But I should have known this right from the start.
Only hope can keep me together.
If love can mend your life but love can break your heart.
Walked out this morning, I don't believe what I saw.
A hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore.
Seems I'm not alone in being alone.
A hundred billion castaways looking for a home.
C#m9 AM7 B7 F#m [2x]
I'm sending out an S.O.S. [repeat & out]
