This is my first bass tab.
It's pretty straightforward and easy.
Listen to the song to hear the exact rhythms.

0:00 – 1:10  Rest for Intro & Verse 1

	Intro:
	I will rise now and go about the city.
	In the street's broadways I seek,
	Him whom my soul loveth.

	Verse 1:
	Went over the sea. What did I find?
	A thousand crystal towers,
	A hundred emerald cities.
	And the hand of the watchman in the night sky,
	Points to my beloved, a knight in crystal armor.

	Verse 2:
	And I tried to hold him,
	I tried for the creed,
	To make a suit of colors,
	To stop the blinding mirrors.
	Sew a cape of red and gold,
	Stifle up the being.
	With the perfect armor,
	With the perfect dream.

	Verse 3:
	And with two suns spinning,
	At two different speeds,
	Was born a hot white diamond,
	Burning through the rainbow.
	Flames fell into orbit,
	To hold eternally,
	Two heavenly spirits,
	That just wouldn't seem.
