	  		Intro (by keyboard) 

Intro (continues with the band): 
C5 D5         C5 D5F5 G5                 

  
C5 D5                         C5 D5F5 G5                      
    Can you remember,  remember my name         as I flow through  
C5 D5                           C5 D5  F5 G5            
 your life      a thousand oceans I  have flown   ooh   and 
Am        riff_1           Am     riff_1   
 cold,       cold spirits of  ice.  
Am           riff_1  Am                            
   All my life           I am the echo of your past 


C5 D5         C5 D5F5 G5                 

   
C5 D5                            C5    D5F5 G5                  
    I am returning,  the echo of a point in time,     distant faces  
C5 D5                           C5 D5   F5 G5           
 shine        a thousand warriors I  have  known        and  
Am       riff_1          Am     riff_1    
 laughing  as the spirits appear 
Am             riff_1 Am                           
   all your life           shadows of another  day 


    F       C                            
                and if you hear me talking  
    Dm                         G                     
     on the wind  you've got to  understand we must re- 
    Dm            C          
    -main    perfect strangers 


    G          Gm

           I know I  must remain inside this silent well of 

C5 D5          C5 D5F5 G5                  
 sorrow 



C5 D5                          C5      D5 F5 G5                          
    A strand of silver   hanging through the sky      touching more than you 
C5 D5                         C5 D5 F5 G5           
 see        the voice of ages in your  mind    oooh, is  
Am         riff_1                Am      riff_1   
 aching      with the death of the night   o - oooh  - 
Am           riff_1      Am                                    
 -aww      precious life     your tears are lost in falling rain 


    F       C                            
                and if you hear me talking  
    Dm                         G                     
     on the wind  you've got to  understand we must re-

Well the 9/4 parts gave me a bit of a headace, so I chose to put a 5/4  
measure there and keep the rest 4/4's. The accents in there come mostly  
at the 2nd half of each 1/4. (As one-AND-two-AND...) 

What to play on Am - riff_1: Basically it's just A5 Am through, but I noticed 
that it's easier to keep track of where you are, if you count the riffs  
especially, when you are singing. :)
