Verse(use chords mapped above);
[Em]Sweet smell of great sorrow lies over the land,

[C/E]A man lies and dreams, of green fields and river,
But[Em] awakes to the morning, with no reason for waking.

[Em]He's haunted by the memory of a lost paradise, <- At "paradise" play

In his y[D/E]outhful dream, he can't be precise,
He's cha[C/E]ined forever, to a world thats departed, <- At "chained", play
fill B
It's n[Em]ot enough, it's not enough.
