 Things get clear when I feel free

 But whatevers next comes easily

 What gentle hands you brought to me
          A                  Cm             A
When your eyes feel weak and tired it truly hits

Verse 2

Paralysed as if to prove my thoughts

 You live and you love

Searching for the dead sea scrolls

So why, so why so sad

                            D                                 E
Burns an express-way to my skull (Burns an express-way to my skull)
                           F#m
Well I will stick myself together again

My spirit, soul and body know I can't pretend
