G        D   C      Em
Love for anyone who needs her
G     D      C        Em         F    C
Innocense is all that feeds her
C
Rolling through the mist
G         D   C      Em
Floating in a sea of madness
G        D       C           Em         F    D
Reaching for the heighths of gladness
D
Or did she exist?
Em                     A
Swirling ions from the stars
D                      Em
Streaming down onto the earth
G                  D
From a galaxy like ours
A                 Bm
Manifested in her birth
Em                A
Child of the universe
D                 Em
Giving freely of herself
G                  D
Purity of truth rehearse
A                     Bm
Leaving man her cosmic well
G        D   C      Em
Love for anyone who needs her
G     D      C        Em         F    C
Innocense is all that feeds her
C
Rolling through the mist
G         D   C      Em
Floating in a sea of madness
G        D       C           Em         F    D
Reaching for the heighths of gladness
D
Or did she exist?
Em                     A
Vision of an untouched grace
D                      Em
Walking gaily through the sun
G                          D
No one else could take her place
A                       Bm
Nor the work that she'd begun
G        D   C      Em
Love for anyone who needs her
G     D      C        Em         F    C
Innocense is all that feeds her
C
Rolling through the mist
G        D       C      Em
Knowing what is understanding
G        D       C       Em
Patience that is undemanding
F          D
Or did she exist?


Or did she exist?

Or did she exist?
