      You [Em]shout in your sleep.
Perhaps the pr[Am]ice is just too steep.
Is your con[Em]science at rest if once [Am]put to the test?
You awa[Em]ke with a start to just the beat[Am]ing of your heart.
Just one man beneath the sky, just two [G]ears, [D]just two [Em]eyes.[G] [D] [Am] [Em]
      You set [Em]sail across the sea of long past thou[Am]ghts and memories.
Childhood's e[Em]nd, your fantasies merge with [Am]harsh realities.
And then [Em]as the sail is hoist, you find your e[Am]yes are growing moist.
All the fears never voiced say you have to [G]make your [D]final [Am]choice.[G] [D] [Am] [Em]

Who are [Em]you and who am I to say we kn[Am]ow the reason why?
Some are b[Em]orn; some men die beneath one [Am]infinite sky.
There'll be w[Em]ar, there'll be peace.
But everyth[Am]ing one day will cease.
All the iron turned to rust; all the [G]proud men [D]turned to [Em]dust.
And so all [Am]things time will mend.
[G]So this [D]song will [Em]end.
