Am                           G                  D 
Listen as the wind blows, from across the great divide
        Am                     G            D
Voices trapped in yearning, memories trapped in time
Am                    G                     D
the night is my companion, and solitude my guide
F                       Am            D
would I spend forever here, and not be satisfied?

  F         Em      Am
And I would be the one
              C
to hold you down
           F
kiss you so hard
     F          Em      G
I'll take your breath away,
          Am
and after I'd
      C
wipe away the tears,
 F           G       Am
just close your eyes dear

Am     G    D   

  Am                           G            D
Through this would I've stumbled,  so many times betrayed
            Am                   G                 D
trying to find an honest word to find the truth enslaved,
    Am                    G                   D
you speak to me in riddles , you speak to me in rhymes
      F            Am                        D
my body aches to breathe your breath,  your words keep me alive


F         Em     Am
And I would be the one
            C
to hold you down
       F
kiss you so hard
  F          Em      G
I'll take your breath away,
          Am
and after I'd
      C
wipe away the tears
 F           G       Am
just close your eyes dear.

Am    G     D  x3

Am                           G          D
Into this night I wander,  it's morning that I dread
Am                           G                D
another day of knowing of  the path I fear to tread
     Am                           G                       D
ohhh -into the sea of waking dreams,  I follow without pride
 F                       Am                         D
nothing stands between us here and I won't be denied.

  F         Em      Am
And I would be the one
             C
to hold you down
         F
kiss you so hard
        
F          Em      G
I'll take your breath away,
          Am 
and after I'd
       C 
wipe away the tears
    F           G       F
just close your eyes dear
             Am
I'll hold you down
           C
kiss you so hard
     F          Em      G
I'll take your breath away,
         Am
and after I'd
           C
wipe away the tears
      Am        Em 
just close your eyes. 
 
(for many of the D chords I throw in some Dsus4 and Dsus2 when playing the D
-same with Am for Amsus2
-same with C for Cmaj7
especially towards the end)
