What a sight for my eyes to see you in sleep
 

-------

Verse 1

E                D  A       B          E
What a sight for my eyes to see you in sleep

E                 D   A    B           E
Could it stop the sun rise hearing you weep

D                 A  E
You're not seen you're not heard

G                 E
But I stand by my word

G                          C                      D  A
Came a thousand miles just catch you while you're smiling
 

Interlude       E    Intro bit again

Verse 2  (same as Verse 1)
What a day for laughter and walking at night
Me following after your hand holding tight
And the memory stays clear with the song that you hear
If I can but make the words awake the feeling

Orchestral solo over

E  G/D  A  E    X2

Verse 3
What a reason for waiting and dreaming of dreams
So here's hoping you've faith in impossible schemes
That are born in the sigh of the wind blowing by
While the dimming light brings the end to a night of loving

Interlude and orchestral solo repeat

End on   E
