A                         E     A
Oh, the dragons are gonna fly tonight
A                        E      A
They’re circling low and inside tonight
F#m          D            A
It’s another round in the losing fight
C#m E                      A
Out along the great divide tonight
A                     E       A
We are soldiers in an ancient war
                      E          A
Seeking out some half remembered shore
F#m          D                 A
We drink our fill and still we thirst for more
C#m                  E                   A
Asking if there’s no heaven what is this hunger for

D                         A
Our path is worn our feet poorly shod
D                  A
We lift our prayer against the odds
E                           D             E       A
And fear the silence is the voice of God, of God, of God
           D      A    D      A
And we cry Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      F#m D A E A
We cry Hallelujah

A                          E        A
Sorrow is constant and the joys are brief
A                             E     A
The seasons come and bring no sweet relief
F#m     D            A
Time is brutal but a careless thief
C#m           E              A
Who takes our lot but leaves behind the grief

D                             A
It is the heart that kills us in the end
D                        A
Just one more old broken bone that cannot mend
E                      D         A     E      A
As it was now and ever shall be, Amen, Amen, Amen
           D      A    D      A
And we cry Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      F#m D A E A
We cry Hallelujah

A                                     E       A
So there will be no guiding light for you and me
A                           E      A
We are not sailors lost out on the sea
F#m            D             A
We were always headed toward eternity
C#m    E                A
Hoping for a glimpse of Galilee

D                           A
Like falling stars from the Universe we are hurled
D                     A
Down through the long loneliness of the world
E                        D       A         E          A
Until we behold the pain become The Pearl, The Pearl, The Pearl
           D      A    D      A
And we cry Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      F#m D A E A
We cry Hallelujah.
