The Spirit Carries On  Dream Theater



   [D]                      [D/F#]            
Where did we come from? Why are we here?

  [G]                       [D]           [D/C#] 
Where do we go when we die?

   [Bm]                [Bm/A]                  
What lies beyond? What lay before?

      [E/G#]                      [A4]        [A] 
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:

If [G]I die tomo[A]rrow, I'd be all r[D]ight bec[D/C#]ause I belie[Bm]ve

that after we[G]'re gone, th[Em]e spirit carries on[D]
(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

                [G]           [Em]         [D] [D7] 
that after we're gone, the spirit carries on


C:

   [Em]                      [D#]            
Move on, be brave! Don't weep at my grave!

      [D]                 [E]              
because I'm no longer here.

But pleas[G]e never let [Em]your memory of me disapp[Bm]ear.

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

               [G]            [Em]         [D] 
that after we're gone, the spirit carries on
