Song: Wait
written and performed by Sarah McLachlan
from the album "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy"
2nd track
transcribed by Georgia Macdonald
This is my interpretation of what the chords of this great song.
If anyone knows the meaning of this song please post a message at !!please!!
The introduction and verses go like this:
[Bm] [-] [-] [-]  
[F#m7]"Under[-] a [-]bla[-]ckened sky"
[Asus] [-] [-] [-]  
[Esus]"Far b[-]eyo[-]nd [-]the glaring street lights"
[Bm] [-] [-] [-]  
[F#m7]"Sleep[-]ing[-] on[-] empty dreams"
[Asus] [-] [-] [-]  
[Esus]"The v[-]ult[-]ure[-]s lie and wait"
The chorus goes like this:
[G]"Wh[/]en [/]all[/] we wanted . . ."
[Bm]"Was[/] a [/]dre[/]am"
[D]"Fo[/]r h[/]eav[/]en to hold that . . ."
[G]"Pr[/]eci[/]ous[/] little thing"
[G]"Wi[/]th [/]eve[/]ry generation . . ."
[D]"A [/]new[/]bor[/]n hope . . ."
[A]"Un[-]jad[-]ed [-]by their years"
The interlude / bridge part is just the verse disorted and with heavy
or someone could transcribe a solo!
And that is about it. There might be a few mistakes (Esus could be
[Esus7]or Esus/B and F#m7 might be just F#m) but don't kill me over them
(besides, Sarah McLachlan's fans are 99% nice people!!!)
Also could play the song with a capo on the first fret (Capo I)
(I think how Sarah does it)
