Going All the Way Is Just the Start
Composed by Jim Steinman

From "Braver Than We Are." Everything's in 4/4 unless noted otherwise. It's not difficult harmonically, but
I've labelled it as intermediate just because the form is ridiculous. You need a GPS to get from start to 
finish.


[Intro]
Dsus2 |: D | Bm | G | A :| A


[Verse 1]
Bm                                               Gm
Sometimes it's the night and the way it seems to cry 
                       Bm                  
And whisper terrifying secrets in your ear
Bm                                            Gm  
Sometimes it's the day and the sun has got no mercy
                              Bm                    
Lighting up and burning everything that's in its way


[Pre-Chorus 1]
                            F#m                    C#m
There are times I've got to run, times I've got to hide
                   F#m                     C#m
Things I've left undone, things I've cast aside
                  G#m                   F#m
So many things to try, so many things denied
          G
If I ever tell you the truth, I swear you will leave me
A
I need the proof that you would believe me


[Chorus-Alt 1]
D           Bm          G             A
You think I fly like an angel without any tears
D          Bm      G                  A
Higher and higher above the world and all its fears


[Pre-Chorus 2]
Bm                                      Em
Everybody's ready to fly, but the storms   are never so very far
        F#m                      G                    A               
And you think my life is shining like a star, but the fears are never very far


[Chorus]
    D         Bm          G               A
And we always seem so much braver than we ever are
D         Bm            G             A
We always dream we seem braver but we never are
      D
Let's run away, let's go so far


[Interlude in 3/4]
B5 | B5 | B5 | B5


[Bridge in 3/4]
          Bm        A/C#      D               F#m         Em         Bm
There are secrets I never can tell, there are shadows of darkness in heaven
          Bm      A/C#       D              F#m       Em          Bm
There are so many suburbs of hell and their hours are twenty-four seven


[Pre-Chorus 3 in 3/4]
          F#m                      C#m           F#m                        C#m
There are so many wounds you can't heal, so many nightmares are turning too real
           G#m                    F#m
So much of paradise lost, and you add up the cost
            G
But there's nothing to be sorry for, now we can feel so much more
A
Now we can do something new (?), nothing that we're scared to do
 

[Chorus-Alt 2]
D          Bm            G                A
You see me smile and you swear that I can walk on air
D          Bm           G                  A
You see me dancing, the moonlight glancing at my hair


[Pre-Chorus 4]
Bm                                           Em
You see me as powerfully strong, but the nightmare's never so very far
         F#m                     G#m                  A
And you think my life is shining like a star, but the tears are never very far
    Bb
The fears are never very far


[Chorus]
    Eb        Cm           Ab             Bb
And we always seem so much braver than we ever are
Eb        C          Ab       Bb
We always seem to be braver but we never are
      Eb
Let's fly away, let's go too far


[Piano Interlude]
|: Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm :|


[Verse 2]
Bm                                               Gm
Sometimes it's the flesh and the way it seems to yearn
                       Bm                    
For all the magic of a single perfect touch
Bm                                             Gm
Sometimes it's the soul and its waiting for salvation
                                   Bm                    
You know when you get it there can never be too much


[Pre-Chorus 5]
                            F#m                    C#m
There are times I've got to run, times I've got to hide
                 F#m                       C#m
Things I've left undone, things I've cast aside
                  G#m                   F#m
So many things to try, so many things denied
          G
If I ever tell you the truth, would you ever believe me?
A
Show me the proof, I'm so scared you will leave me


[Chorus-Alt 3]
D           Bm          G             A
You think I fly like an angel without any care
D          Bm        G                A
Higher and higher as if I'm breathing sacred air


[Pre-Chorus 6]
Bm                                Em
Everybody's ready to fly, but the storms are never so very far
        F#m                      G#m                  A               
And you think my life is shining like a star, but the fears are never very far
     A
The nightmare's never very far


[Chorus]
    D         Bm           G              A
And we always seem so much braver than we ever are
D         Bm              G             A
We always dream we'd seem braver but we never are
      D
Let's run away, let's go so far
