*** I sort of mixed all the strings that I hear and came up with this
    intro. You'll dig it once you get the hang of it. Listen to the
    record and you'll get the intro in no time. And oh, sorry if
    the instrumental sounded awful. I can't hear those bass notes, and
    i think i kinda fucked up those treble ones as well. Heh.

VERSE : (plucked)
Em          G             Bm Em      C9  G   C9  B
  There's a song that's inside of my soul,
Em         G              Bm Em         C9       G     C9    B
  It's the one that Iíve tried to write over and over again.
Em     G           Bm Em    C9   G   C9  B
  I'm awake in the infinite cold,
Em        G          Bm Em    C9       G     C9   B
  But you sing to me over and over and over again.

CHORUS : (strummed)
       E      B         A
  So I lay my head back down,
        E       B
  And I lift my hands and
  A          C#m7
  Pray to be only yours,
    A          C#m7
  I pray to be only yours,
     C9                B
  I know now you're my only hope.

  Sing to me the songs of the stars,
Em         G      Bm   Em    C9           G         C9   B
  Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again.
Em        G             Bm  Em        C9   G   C9   B
  When it feels like my dreams are so far,
Em        G         Bm  Em         C9          G     C9   B
  Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again.
