	   Eb
	Becalmed upon a troubled sea

Chorus 1:

	Dm              Bb               C              C#dim

	Dm                Bb                  C                  C7

	F             F7                  Bb    /A        Gm
	One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace

	Becalmed upon a troubled sea
	I fear a mighty wave is threatening me

	We'll hoist a hand
	Or drown amidst a stormy sea
	Come follow after cry the humble, you will surely see

Chorus 2:

	No moments gained, no thoughts explained, no hope forever lost
	One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace
	Burnt by fire, blind in sight, lost in ire
