Into The West

Annie Lennox


|-----x--------x--------x---| B - base note

 Lay down your sweet and weary head
Night is falling, you have come to journey's end
Sleep now and dream of the ones who came before
They are calling from across a distant shore

 Why do you weep?

 What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms, you're only sleeping

 What can you see on the horizon?

 Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea a pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

 And all will turn to silver-glass
A light on the water, all souls pass

Hope fades until the world of night
Through shadows' falling out of memory and time
Don't say, we have come now to the end
White shores are calling you and I will meet again

And you'll be here in my arms just sleeping

What can you see on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea a pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home
And all will turn to silver-glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass into the West

Brynhilda (report comment to admin):

There are missing lines and missing chords.
And the word order does not follow the melody of this song.
And there are a lot of wrong chords.
