About this tab version
Different, cause i try to bring this song for an accoustic version. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This song is normally played in C#(?), but for this acoustic-version I think it fits better in G. 
Attention: it's not easy to sing!

[Verse 1]
G                D         A
    It's getting dark too soon
       Em
    A threatening silence
G               D     A
    surrounding me. A wind 
         Em
   comes up from the islands.
G                 D                A
    When distance fades to stormy grey,
                         Em
    Washed out from the deep of the ocean,
G                D                  A
    Here I will stand to face your wrath,
 Em          N.C.                G
    While all the others are praying

[Chorus 1]
                        D                A
    Calm down, my heart - don't beat so fast
                          Em              G
    Don't be afraid, just once in a lifetime
                        D                A
    Calm down, my heart - don't beat so fast
                          Em              G
    Don't be afraid, just once in a lifetime

                  D           A
    No rain can wash away my tears
                Em
    No wind can soothe my pain
G                D                 A
    You made me doubt, you made me fear
                 Em
    But now I'm not the same

G                D               A
    You took my wife, my unborn son
                   Em
    Torn into the deep of the ocean
G               D                A
    I don't pretend that I love you
                    Em              N.C.
    Cause there is nothing left to lose


[Break or Solo]
2 x G   D   A   Em

[Verse 2]
G                   D              A
    And when silence comes back to me
           Em
    I find myself feeling lonely
G                        D               A
    Standing here on the shores of destiny
           Em
    I find myself feeling lonely

G                        D               A
    I had a life to give, many dreams to live
                        Em                           G
    Don't you know that you're losing so much this time?
               D                 A
    Beyond the waves, I will be free
  Em       N.C.                   G
    While all the others are praying

[Chorus 2]
                        D                A
    Calm down, my heart - don't beat so fast
                          Em              G
    Don't be afraid, just once in a lifetime
                        D                A
    Calm down, my heart - don't beat so fast
                          Em              G
    Don't be afraid, just once in a lifetime

                  D           A
    No rain can wash away my tears
                Em
    No wind can soothe my pain
G                D                 A
    You made me doubt, you made me fear
                 Em
    But now I'm not the same

G                D               A
    You took my wife, my unborn son
                   Em
    Torn into the deep of the ocean
G               D                A
    I don't pretend that I love you
                    Em
    Cause there is nothing left to lose

G                D                A
    The love in you, it does not burn
                Em
    There is no lesson you can learn
G                 D                  A
    And there are sounds you cannot hear
                  Em
    And there are feelings you can't feel
G                      D                 A
    Calm down, my heart - don't beat so fast
                          Em
    Don't be afraid, just once in a lifetime
G               D                A
    I don't pretend that I love you
                  Em                G
    And this time I'm not scared of you
