She took my hand and then she started to speak
[D]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 --------7-------------------------------------------------
 -0-2h3--5-------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

She told me she haad the call
[E]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 --------9-------------------------------------------------
 -0-2h3--7-------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

With eyes of fire that were burning my soul
[D]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 --------7-------------------------------------------------
 -0-2h3--5-------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

She looked into her crystal ball
[Db]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

She read my fortune then she read my mind
[C]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

She didn't like my thoughts at all
[E]

She showed me shadows, a spectre of life

 -0-2h3--5-------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

My soul just wanted to scream
[E]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

She said "Look deeply, into my eyes."
[D]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 --------7-------------------------------------------------
 -0-2h3--5-------------------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------- 

That's when I fell into a dream
[Db]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 --------6-------------------------------------------------
 -0-2h3--4-------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

When I awoke in bed she lay beside me
[C]  
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------
 --------5-------------------------------------------------
 -0-2h3--3-------------------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------------------------

And as she read me with her eyes, she said..
