[E]You were dreamin' [A]on a park bench by the[B] broad highway somewhere
[E]When music from the [A]carilon it seemed to [B]hurl your heart out there
[E]Past the scientific [A]darkness, past the fireflies that [B]float
[E]To an angel b[A]ending down to wrap you in her warmest [B]coat
[G#m7]And you ask, "What am I not doing?"
[F#maj7]She says, "Your voice cannot command."
[B7sus]She says, "In time, you will move mountains,
and it will co-------ome through your hands."
[E]Still you argue f[A]or an option, s[B]till you angle for your case
[E]Like you wouldn't[A] know a burnin'[B] bush if it blew up in your face
[E]Yeah, we scheme a[A]bout the future[B] as we dream about the past
[E]When just a simpl[A]e reachin' out [B]might build a bridge that lasts

[E]So whatever your [A]hands find to d[B]o, go on and do it with all your heart
[E]There are thought[A]s enough to blo[B]w men's minds and tear great worlds apart
[E]There's a healin'[A] touch to find [B]you out on that broad highway somewhere
[E]To lift you high [A]like music flyi[B]n through the angel's hair.
[G#m7]Don't ask what you are not doing
[F#maj7]Because your voice cannot command
[B7sus]You see, in time, we will move mountains
[B7]And it will come through --
