The warming sun, the cooling rain,
      F        G               C              D9 (x5755x)
The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,
D              G                  Em       A
The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you
F         G              C         D9
Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.
F             Bb         C        F
The words of love, the cries of hate,
Bb       Am         Bb         F
And the man in the moon who seduced you
      Bb      F
Then finally loosed you.
