Night of a million moons

Mary Karlzen

[The chords are kind of hard to define; see the tab at the end for a better
idea of what's going on. F#dim(no3) is just F# and C.]

  What seemed to be 
 CF
A million years ago 
 CFCF
When the summers were as endless as the days and the sky was as lazy 
 CF
My mother and I 
 CF
Would sit on the concrete steps
 GFGF
And watch the wind blow through the grass 
G F#dim(no3) F
We saw the dogs run, and watched my brothers pass
 CF
  And I looked at my mother 
 CF
As we silently watched the wind 
 GFGF
And without a single word 
G F#dim(no3) F
We'd rise up, and go in
 CBbGG
    Welcome to the night of a million moons 
 CBbGG
   Welcome to the future which comes all too soon
 FGFAm
And I reached for the light as if I could stop the past somehow
 FGCF
From colliding against what is now 
 CFCF
Welcome to the night   of a million moons
