VERSE:
The 1st guitar plays the chords with the same pattern as the intro and the 2nd strums the chords.

G#m                                  D#m
There was a time when we sailed on together
D#7                                    G#m 
once had a dream that we shared on the way
E                                        B  *Fill #1*
there was a place where we used to seek shelter
C#m               A                        D# 
I never knew the pain of the price I would pay
G#m                               D#m *Fill #2*
You led me on with a cloak and a dagger
D#7                                  G#m *Fill #3*
and I didn't know you had made other plans
E                                         B *Fill #4*
and had me believe we were meant for forever
C#m                   A                          D# 
I really thought my heart would be safe in your hands

     Fill #1      Fill #2   Fill #3     Fill #4
e|-------------|----------|-----------|------------|
B|-------------|----------|-----------|------------|
G|-------------|-6br~~----|--6br------|-----6b-----|
D|-----2~--4/6-|----------|------9-6~-|-6h9----9~~-|
A|-2h4---------|----------|-----------|------------|
E|-------------|----------|-----------|------------|

CHORUS:

G#m 
Lorelei
E              B 
My ship has passed you by
                C#m 
and though you promised me to show the way
D# 
you led me astray
              G#m
you were my lorelei
E              B
what kind of fool was I
           C#m  
cause I believed in every word you said
    D#  
and now I wonder why
   G#m 
Lorelei

VERSE:

G#m                                  D#m *Fill #2*
There was a time when we held one another
D#7                                    G#m  *Fill #3*
Bearing our souls in the light of the flame
E                                         B *Fill #4*
Those were the days now I've lost my illusions
C#m                       A                        D# 
Sometimes I wake in the night and I call out your name

CHORUS:

Bbm
Lorelei
F#            C# 
My ship has passed you by
                  D#m
and though you promised me to show the way
F 
you led me astray
              Bbm
you were my lorelei
F#            C#
what kind of fool was I
           D#m
Cause I believed in every word you said
     F
and now I wonder why
   Bbm 
Lorelei

VERSE:
(Same as the first verse)

G#m                                    D#m
now there's a light that shines on the river
D#7                          G#m *Fill #3*
Blinding my eyes from so far away
E                                        B *Fill #5*
Shot through the heart but now I know better
C#m                  A                        D# *Fill #6*
As hard as it is to resist the song that you play

         Fill #5       Fill #6

              Bbm
