WHITE PEARL, BLACK OCEANS- Sonata Arctica Standard Tuning, Capo 2 D* = x54232 (C position while barring 2) Bm F#m I was born and raised by the sea; shy yet proud, D A G A D F#m learned to stay away from the crowd in my home, my lighthouse Bm F#m 101 steps, round and down.. D A G A D F#m Bm New Years Eve, one night on the town can change one life into eternity.. Bm F#m D A G A D F#m Bm F#m D A G A D F#m Bm D* Bm D* All I could see- her eyes.. We got caught in the moment all of the night.. Em G Em G A Taken beyond all lines.. In silence, leaving them all behind.. Bm D* She had found the sails for the following night.. Bm D* The town, for her, was getting way too small.. Em G Em Asus4 A She promised to be mine.. Forever, for that one night.. G Bm Moments, passion, small defeats.. Concealed emotions found in me.. G Em D A "You gave life to a brand new me.." Bm D* Bm D* Crossing the wintry fields, the first hour of morning light Em G Em G A Warmed by the flame inside.. the lasting memory of the ending night.. Bm D* Bm D* I never had a chance to stop what hit me.. What broke my bones and mauled me Em G Em G A After hours of deep unwilling sleep in a cold shelter, fell back in the dark, (hold/strum A) ..and the hours of the day passed Am Em A nightmare awakes me, blinking light C G F There's no guide- blind ships in the night! G C Em G Oh, blood red moon, eat away the night.. Bm Em Darkness covers my lonely soul, no one to feed the dying light.. Em Am G D Em Am G D Em Am G D Em Am G D Em G Em G Am Good morn', oh dreadful day.. I prayed the moon had lit the sea instead of me C Am C D For the sails of night.. "Please tell me everything is alright.." Em G Em G My voice in the room broke the silence.. everybody killed me with their eyes.. Am C Am C D What I was to hear made the people cry- Impossible for me to keep the tears inside.. Am Em "All on the board the White Pearl have died! C G F G C Em Am Coastal reef has tolled their lives, and you are the light of the night!" G Em G One thing I remember.. before I fell on the ground Am C Am C D Although I never saw the face.. a name was inked in his arm.. Em G Em G Love can be like poetry of demons, or maybe God loves complex irony? Am C Am C D The family name stated I had seen before.. Written on her front door! Am D Em C G D B7 "Silence in the courthouse!" Am D Em A presence in the room we both could feel- C G D B7 Am The father of her unborn child and me! (Am) Em ..All on the board the White Pearl have died! C G F G C Em Coastal reef has tolled their lives, while I was the guide light! Am Em Back in my tower, run, run, run- C G F G C Em Bm Light is out, I hope to see black oceans beneath rise and swallow me! Bm F#m D A G A D F#m Bm F#m D A G A D F#m Bm C F# Bm Bm C F# Bm F# Bm Bm C F# One step will take me back inside, another sees my end! Bm G C No one can love a man who guarded the light (gaurded the light) one fateful night.. F# Bm F# Bm Flaming eyes I must confront before I am stated free.. C F# Defining innocence is hell after all that has passed.. Bm G C Building new walls inside my eternal night.. F# Bm F# Bm Although they took my heart and dried me up, sometimes I still bleed.. F# Bm Em F# Show me the way, show me the way.. Bm A D F# The light will show me a way on the grisly reefs Bm G Em F# Too many dead ends I see Bm A D No soul can save me, the respect I lost.. The measure of a man.. Em Am G D Em Am G Am Em Am G D Em Am G Am Am Dm C G Am Dm C Dm Am Dm C G Am Dm C Dm Bm F#m 10,000 steps down, round and round.. D A G A D F#m One night on the town (and I'm hell bound..) Black oceans beneath.. Bm F#m ..Come and swallow me! (All on board the White Pearl have died..) D A G Coastal reef come claim my life, A D F#m Bm F#m Black oceans beneath, come and swallow me! (My little tower, seal my fate..) D A G Help me pay back- End their hate.. A D F#m Bm F#m Black oceans beneath, come and swallow me! (One direction; down, down, down..) D A G Pitch black night for my old town A D F#m Bm Black oceans beneath shall now swallow me.. Bm C F# Bm G C F# Bm F# Bm (repeats and fades into spoken passage) "I hereby commit my body to the deep, to be turned into corruption, looking for the resurrection of the body, when the Sea shall give up Her dead, and the life of the world to come, through our Lord. Amen."
