(Riff 1) 4x  *Fade-in A5*


A5                                                    G5
I told you once about a place that I had accidentally stumbled upon

A5                                                          G5
Can you imagine how it feels to find somewhere that you can do no wrong

F5                      Bb5             A5
But it's alright you're safe in my hand

(Riff 1) 1x


I'll meet you in the sky tonight and we will trace some undiscovered stars
We'll go beyond the universe beyond all understanding, hey, it's not that far
But it's alright I feel safe in your hands

(Riff 2)

I can't stand living this way       |
Getting by from day to day          |
I'm drinking from your loving cup   |  Riff 2
I told you things were looking up   |  (2x)
Oh oh oh so good                    |
Oh it feels so good                 |


We're all the same but then again we're all quite different in our own peculiar ways
We've come so far and now we're going through another phase
But it's alright We made it so far

(Riff 1) 2x

*Solo 1*

F#5 played over:

I can't stand living this way
Getting by from day to day
I'm drinking from your loving cup
Told you things were looking up

*Solo 2*


As we all know if s hard to breathe when something spiritual has taken place
We don't know why we don't know how we've been transformed into a state of grace
But it's alright We walk in our sleep

F5                        Bb5           A5
Yes it's alright This is rapture of the deep
