Lamplight Symphony

  		Am                   Cm                               Gm 
On a winter's night, stars are cold and bright in the sky, 
Gm                          Fm          Gm 
The slumber of the earth is pure and deep 
Am                  Cm                      Gm 
From a distant wood, drifts the echo of a beast 
Gm                   Fm                     Am 
The old man stirs and wakens in the night 
Dm                                                C 
He stands before the window gazing at the grave 
Dm                                                 C 
Forgotten dreams are flashing through his weary mind 
Dm                               C                                         A2 
And though his life is empty, he pretends that she's still there 

Am                       Cm                                  Gm 
With hunger in his soul, he yearns for life and love gone by, 
Gm                Fm                  Gm 
With memories his one and only joy 
Am                       Cm                                               Gm 
But All he has to give, you know he would gladly give to bring back the life, 
Gm                    Fm                        Am 
And raise the one who lies beneath the snow 
Dm                                             C 
He lights a lamp and looks at pictures of the past 
Dm                                             C 
The faces of their youth still glow with new-found love, 
Dm                         C                     A2 
But the pictures faded, and time has stolen youth away 

Dm                                            Cm 
With a spoken word that he thought he heard from her lips, 
Dm                      Bb                       F       
He felt another presence in the room, 
Dm                                          Cm 
He was filled with fear but turned with joy he arose 
Dm                                                            Am 
And turned to face the image that he knew 
Dm                                                Cm 
She stood before him and her hand reached out for his 
Dm                                              Bb 
A peaceful light shone in her eyes 
C                                  Bb                        Dm 
She said she'd come to soothe him, and that someday they'd be as one 

Am                   Cm                      Gm 
She began to fade and her image disappeared, 
Gm                      Fm                   Gm 
So he was left alone to face another night, 
Am                               Cm         Gm 
Never in his life, had he been so held in awe, 
Gm                  Fm              Am 
As he faced the apparition of his wife 
Dm                                             C 
He stood before the window gazing at the grave, 
Dm                                             C 
And with a lightened heart he saw the first of dawn, 
Dm                                C                         D 
He knew that she was waiting, that someday they'd be as one
