When your sky starts to tumble and your rhymes starts to lose
D Dsus4 D A D
The meaning so tenderly given
Dsus4 DV GIII A D
When all your dreams lie down and die at your shoes
D Em G D
You can turn to me for livin'

When your sweet words begin to turn black on the vines
And they bear their fruit no longer
Then lay down your love songs and leave them behind
I'll show you something stronger

The shadow you're chasing will fade in the sun
Don't let disbelief deceive you
As you hide from your sorrow remember there's one
That only seeks to please you

And now you must follow your dreams as they fly
Leaving trails of empty feeling
Perhaps when you watch all your dream lovers die
You'll decide that you need a real one
This song is from the album "In The Beginning".
