[Intro]

Em - C - Em - D - Em



Em
I wonder, can you daydream at night?
C                     D
Lying awake, I've had too much time.
Em
I'm watching picture shows in the shadows
                      C
Dance for the crowd tonight.
     D                               C
Imagination is such a vivid place to hide, 
                  D
While stars watch over you.


               Em
Through silent homes
                         D
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
                      C
The way I've walked before,
               D                                  Em
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls.
                         D
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
C                                        D                      Em
I promised not to wake you, so I'll walk light, just so you can hear,


                                         C
The rats in the roof and termites in the ceiling.
           D                                 Em
We'll hear everything except what we need to hear.
                                       C
Sleeplessness is for the restless, and I'm just fine,
        D                    C              D
Left to wander, aimless in unconsciousness.


Em              D                               C
There's spiders crawling from the corners of my eyes.
                            D                                    Em
Let them weave their little webs to snatch the sunlight from the lens.
                   D                                  C
I'm staring at the ceiling 'cause I'm fed up with the sight.
                         D                              C
Weigh my eyelids back to sleep, sealed by silken silver threads,
                  D
While stars watch over you.


               Em
Through silent homes
                         D
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
                      C
The way I've walked before,
               D                                  Em
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls.
                         D
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
C                          D
Cast the sheep out of your mind,
                                   Em
Count the wolves and we'll sleep tonight.


Em                          D                         C
I stumble in and I stumble out of unfamiliar rooms in foreign houses,
    D
But I'm at home, 
Em                          D
Now a ghost that has left behind his sheets,
              C     D                                        C
Unrequited, until I wake up somewhere I know that I've never been.
               D                Em
I'll stay 'til sleep takes over you.
               D                C
I'll stay 'til sleep takes over you.
                    D                Em
And I'll walk while stars watch over you.
                    D                C
And I'll walk while stars watch over you.



               Em
Through silent homes
                         D
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
                      C
The way I've walked before,
               D                                  Em
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls.
                         D
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
                      C
The way I've walked before,
               D                                  Em
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls.
                        D
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
C                          D
Cast the sheep out of your mind,
                                   C
Count the wolves and we'll sleep tonight.
