Intro

G D G

GThe river whispers in my Dear I've hardly a penny to my Gname The heavens have never seemed so Dnear All my body glows with Gflame. C The tempest struggles in theG air C And to myself alone I Gsing It could sink me then and Dthere I can hear the echoes Gring. C I tried to find one smilin' Gface C To drive the shadow from my Ghead I'm stranded in this nameless Dplace Lyin' restless in a heavy Gbed. --> [Repeat in the same verse order as above] Tell me straight out if you will Why must you torture me within? Why must you come down off your high hill? Throw my fate to the clouds and wind. Far away in a silent land Secret thoughts are hard to bear Remember me you'll understand Emotions we can never share. You trampled on me as you passed Left the coldest kiss upon my brow All my doubts and fears have gone at last I've nothing more to tell you now. I walk by tranquil lakes and streams As each new season's dawn awaits I lay awake at night with troubled dreams The enemy is at the gate. Beneath the thunder-blasted trees The words are ringin' off your tongue The ground is hard in times like these Stars are cold, the night is young. The rocks are bleak, the trees are bare Iron clouds go floatin' by Snowflakes falling in my hair Beneath the gray and stormy sky. The evenin' sun is sinking low The woods are dark, the town is too They''ll drag you down, they run the show Ain't no tellin' what they'll do. Tell Ol' Bill when he comes home Anything is worth a try Tell him that I'm not alone That the hour has come to do or die. All the world I would defy Let me make it plain as day I look at you now and I sigh How could it be any other way?
