Renaissance - Northern Lights


Intro:
B  F#m7  B  E  B/E  A/E  E  B/E  A/E  B/E


E           B/E             A/E             B/E           
Destination outward bound,I turn to see the northern lights 

E          B/E    A/E   B/E
behind the wing.

E                B/E         A/E                    B/E
Horizons seem to beckon me.  Learned how to cry too young,

         E       B/E   A/E   B/E
so now I live to sing.

E     B        A      B         E          B        A       B
  The northern lights are in my mind, they guide me back to you.

E                B/E        A/E                    B/E
Horizons seem to beckon me. Learned how to cry too young,

         E       B/E    A/E    B/E
so now I live to sing.

D                  Em           D                    Em
Though it's hard away from you, travelling roads and passing through,

     C                      G            D        A
it's not for money and it's not for fame.  I just can't explain,

D              A       F           C        D        A
sometimes it's lonely. Marking the space between the days.

D     A     G    A       F       C      D        A
Early hours pass away, I sing to you of northern lights, I

D        A       G       A    B    F#m7    B7    F#m7
sing for you of northern nights.

E               B/E            A/E              B/E
Past or future, here or there, shelter comes in words from you,

   E       B/E    A/E    B/E   
so talk to me.                 

E                     B/E
I hear your voice, it comforts me.

   A/E              B/E                 E         B/E   A/E   B/E
In morning dreams I take your hand, you walk with me.

E     B        A          B     E          B        A       B 
  The northern lights are in my mind, they guide me back to you.

E                 B/E              A/E            B/E 
Peace enfolds the still night air. Home again,  I look for you and

E         B/E    A/E    B/E
find you there.                 

D           Em            D                  Em            
Destination homeward now. Take the easy way, bring me down. 

C                   G
Making the hard way now, I see.

D            A           D                 A
  Hard to be really free.  I'm missing you near me.

F           C        D        A     D     A     G     A
Marking the space between the days. Early hours pass away.

  F       C      D        A       
I sing to you of northern lights. 

  D        A      G        A    B    F#m7    B7    F#m7
I sing for you of northern nights.


E     B        A          B     E          B        A       B 
  The northern lights are in my mind, they guide me back to you.

E     B        A          B     E          B        A       B 
  The northern lights are in my mind, they guide me back to you.

Unobvious Chords:

B/E  099877
A/E  077655

Note also the rhythm of the intro/verse is different from the chorus, despite the
chords almost being the same. The rhythm for the verse is something like:

   E        B/E      A/E      B/E
e |0---0---|77777---|5---5---|77777---|
B |0---0---|77777---|5---5---|77777---|
G |1---1---|88888---|6---6---|88888---|
D |2---2---|99999---|7---7---|99999---|
A |2---2---|99999---|7---7---|99999---|
E |0---0---|00000---|0---0---|00000---|

Whereas the chorus rhythm is more like:

   E        B        A        B
e |0-0-0---|2-2-2-2-|0-0-0---|2-2-2-2-|
B |0-0-0---|4-4-4-4-|2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|
G |1-1-1---|4-4-4-4-|2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|
D |2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|
A |2-2-2---|2-2-2-2-|0-0-0---|2-2-2-2-|
E |0-0-0---|x-x-x-x-|x-x-x---|x-x-x-x-|

although that's a simplification!
