Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

A Long Winters Nap  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[G]Darkness comes up quicker every night, now
[Em]Lest I forget this world is turning
[C]To be a little darker every day[Am] takes me further from
[Em]The faces and the places and the hands that I hold dear.

Verse 2

In the gold light of September they were waving like the leaves.
But I just turned and drove away.
The day that I left home was the coldest of that year
And that shaking, it has stayed

(finger pick)
[C](pause) [C]        [Am]        [Am]        [Em]        [Em]        [Em]        [Em]

Verse 3

So, I’m praying for some warmth from a lonely cigarette
A kind of light in this great dark
But the filter comes too soon, in this terrible room
I try to sleep away the days

Chorus 1
[Am]‘Cause [Em]in my dre[G]ams [G]my friends all sing to me
A song I know will never end
They sing they’ve not forgotten what we hoped to be
They have not forgotten me; they know I will never forget them.

Am Em Em Em x2

Verse 4

I called my brother; to say I could not speak
He said, “I know just what you mean.
For every word that you might learn there’s a stone that will inter
Another day gone by without you.”

[C](pause) [C]        [Am]        [Am]        [Em]        [Em]        [Em]        [Em]

Chorus 2
But, in my dreams...

Am Em Em Em x2
[Am]        [Em]
