The Spirit Carries On

Dream Theater

 DD/F#
Where did we come from? Why are we here?

 GDD/C#
Where do we go when we die?

 BmBm/A
What lies beyond? What lay before?

 E/G#A4A
Is anything certain in life?
A:

They say life is too short the here and the now,

and you're only given one shot.
But could there be more? Have I lived before?
Or could this be all that we've got?

B:

Chorus:

 GADD/C#Bm
If I die tomorrow, I'd be all right because I believe

 GEmD
that after we're gone, the spirit carries on 

(interlude)

D D9 D4 Em .
D D9 D4 A4 (drums)

A:

I used to be frightened of dying.
I used to think death was the end.

But that was before, I'm not scared anymore.

I know that my soul will transcend.

A:

I may never find all the answers,
I may never understand why.

I may never prove what I know to be true,

but I know that I still have to try.

B:

CHORUS:

If I died tomorrow I'd be all right because I believe

 GEmDD7
that after we're gone, the spirit carries on

C:

 EmD#
Move on, be brave! Don't weep at my grave!

 DE
because I'm no longer here.

 GEmBm
But please never let your memory of me disappear.

Guitar Solo

Same chords

A:

Safe in the light that surrounds me.

Free of the fear and the pain.

The question in mind has helped me to find

the meaning in my life again.

A:

Victoria's real! I finally feel

at peace with the girl in my dreams.

And now that I'm here, it's perfectly clear

I'll find out what all of this means.

B:

Chorus:

If I died tomorrow I'd be all right because I believe

 GEmD
that after we're gone, the spirit carries on
