Tuning: EADGBe

This track is available on the  'Futurama' CD, and also the 'Air 
Age Anthology' compilation.  A good song to play on acoustic guitar. 
I think most of the info you need is here.

Lyrics:


If you see me 
If you see smiling
It's no sin
It's just the speed of the wind

If you hear
If you hear the ringing bells
The chimes within
It's just the speed of the wind

If you fear
If you fear your secret hell
Just walk right in
It's just the speed of the wind

It's just the speed of the wind
It's just the speed of the wind

Hey!  Don't put out your light
There's too much shadow in your room tonight
This time before time begins
We'll touch the sky with our tragic wings
Sail with the sailing planes
We'll synchronize our maiden names
See what a fall might bring
Descending, ascending, 
Descending, ascending,
Descending, ascending,
With the speed of the wind

If you see me 
If you see smiling
It's no sin
It's just the speed of the wind

If you hear
If you hear the ringing bells
The chimes within
It's just the speed of the wind

If you fear
If you fear your private hell
Just walk right in
It's just the speed of the wind

It's just the speed of the wind
It's just the speed of the wind
