G††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††† G††††††† †††††††††††A

Maybe we can bring some - Maybe we can sing some too

Maybe we can dream the night away

We can find a place where we can lie - Somewhere in the shadow of the moon

We can kiss there - We can talk some too

We can dream the night away

G††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† A

Cuz Iím too proud to - You may be too proud too

G††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††† D

And it makes me wonder why


D*†††††††† Bm F#††††††† G†††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††† D

The road is long - It gets a little longer everyday

I climb the rocks on mountain high - I stand there screaming in the rain


G††††††††††††††† A†††††††† G†††††††††††††† A

I reach out to you - I pray you reach out too

††††††††††††††† D* Bm F#G††††† A††††††††††††† D

And then I fly, I fly - I will never land again

I fly, I fly - I will never land again
