Lamplight Symphony  Kansas

On a winter's ni[Am]ght, stars are cold a[Cm]nd bright in the sky,[Gm]
[Gm]The slumber of the earth is [Fm]pure and dee[Gm]p
[Am]From a distant wood,[Cm] drifts the echo of a be[Gm]ast
[Gm]The old man stirs and[Fm] wakens in the night[Am]
[Dm]He stands before the window gazing at the grave[C]
[Dm]Forgotten dreams are flashing through his weary min[C]d
[Dm]And though his life is empty, he [C]pretends that she's still there[A2]
[Am]With hunger in his soul, [Cm]he yearns for life and love gone by,[Gm]
[Gm]With memories his [Fm]one and only joy[Gm]
[Am]But All he has to give, y[Cm]ou know he would gladly give to bring back the li[Gm]fe,
[Gm]And raise the one who [Fm]lies beneath the snow[Am]
[Dm]He lights a lamp and looks at pictures of the p[C]ast
[Dm]The faces of their youth still glow with new-fo[C]und love,
[Dm]But the pictures faded, and[C] time has stolen youth[A2] away
[Dm]With a spoken word that he thought he heard fr[Cm]om her lips,
[Dm]He felt another presence[Bb] in the room,[F]
[Dm]He was filled with fear but turned with joy [Cm]he arose
[Dm]And turned to face the image that he knew[Am]
[Dm]She stood before him and her hand reached out for [Cm]his
[Dm]A peaceful light shone in her eyes[Bb]
[C]She said she'd come to soothe him, [Bb]and that someday they'd be[Dm] as one
[Am]She began to fade and[Cm] her image disappeared,[Gm]
[Gm]So he was left alone to [Fm]face another night,[Gm]
[Am]Never in his life, had he been so[Cm] held in aw[Gm]e,
[Gm]As he faced the appa[Fm]rition of his wi[Am]fe
[Dm]He stood before the window gazing at the grave,[C]
[Dm]And with a lightened heart he saw the first of [C]dawn,
[Dm]He knew that she was waiting, that[C] someday they'd be as one [D]
