(Capo V)

Intro: D  Am  C  G
       D  Am  C  G

D          Am
When I was younger
      C             G
She'd come to me in dreams
D            Am
Her face was hidden
       C        G
In the mountain streams
D            Am
Her voice disguised
       C            G
As the sound of the wind
D               Am
The rustling of leaves
          C             G
She would call from within

     D        G/D      C/D     D
Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said
     D        G/D      C/D         D    Am  C  G
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead

So many memories
Of those years have passed
Beyond the confusion
That [ thought would last forever
The countless veils
That I wore like clothes
Have been stripped away
Now [ stand here exposed


In the night when the moon
Casts no shadows at all
We sat by the fire
As she started to call
Out to all who would hear
That the death of what's dead
Is the birth of what's living
And her words filled my head


It's the life that lies sleeping
When you think you're awake
Forever is real
And the rest is just fake
And though volumes are written
On this subject alone
She used three simple words
And she brought it all home


If you don't own a capo:
Play G instead of D
     Dm instead of Am
     F instead of C
     C instead of G
